2022 Robbie Burns Planning

Burns Night

We need to plan the various scenarios around COVID-19

  • Social Distancing requirements
  • Wind instrument performance restrictions
  • Maximum indoor guest capacities


  • Performers pay cost of meal.
  • Performer Guests pay a discounted rate, somewhere between performer and early group price.
  • Base room rental costs spread across guests but not performers.
  • Early bird + group discount should = meal cost+room share.
  • *Means full price should be minimum of 125% of cost+room.


  • Email past attendees
  • Email leads gathered in the last year
  • Flyers
  • Social Media Posts
  • Online advertising (Where’s the scoop etc).


Numbers put in the budget were a gut feel based upon previous years.  They were not calculated.


Folder have NOT been created on Google Drive yet.


  • Are we / will we be ready musically
  • Will we be able to afford the venue/meal with restrictions in place?
  • Will we be able to get sufficient Silent Auction items to fund this years expense?
  • Should we hold off and have a spring concert instead?  Also?


Who is doing what?

  • Expectation that everyone sells tickets to friends/family/work colleagues
  • Expectation that everyone approach potential donors for silent auction
  • Who will do SM posts?
  • Who will do email blasts?
  • Who will put flyers up?
