Proposal description

Below is a link to our VERY detailed proposal (or click here, if you prefer). For those who wish to spend a bit less time reading over the proposal, there is a Synopsis video at the top of the page. If you scroll down, you'll find a Future Projects video as well, so you can see how this proposal fits into our overall plan to work with Dash. Thank you for your valuable time and consideration. Please vote YES!

The full proposal, minus the videos and event fliers (we're having trouble posting them to this site):

Thanks to the community for helping us tailor the pre-proposal(s) into the current proposal.


Synopsis

If you read the original pre-proposal for this project last month, you'll notice WE HAVE DOUBLED THE NUMBER OF DAYS FOR THE EVENT (from 3 to 6), but kept the cost almost exactly the same. Now the Bowl Bash 22 event is going to be two consecutive weekends, and
some people will stay here during the week between as well. We're still
expecting no less than 1,000 people for the duration of the event.
Also, bands will be playing live at Bowl Bash on all three stages, and that includes the stage directly across from the Dash Expansion area of construction.

(Yes, if you sponsor this project, all large events that feature enough
bands for us to open the second stage, will have live bands playing
right in front of the Dash sponsored area.)


Introduction

We'd also like to thank the strangers who have donated Dash to help alleviate the burden of the proposal fee.

For ease of reading this long/detailed pre-proposal, we will use bold print for areas of relative importance throughout.


Overview and Agreement Structure

We (Skatopia) wish to present the Dash community with a chance to
sponsor an expansion of a world famous extreme sports and concert venue
in exchange for a number of benefits, including naming and labeling the
new edition (to the existing Lula Bowl) after Dash. We also have some
future proposals in mind, which will be explored below.

All project funds asked for in this proposal are paid over a three month period, which allows the Dash community to stop at least the last payment if
they find we are not keeping to our side of the agreement. We structured
the pre-proposal this way to mitigate risk for the Dash community when dealing with a new contractor/partner (us). Our business reputation for upholding contracts with sponsors spans 22 years this year, so we're not worried if you wish to do due diligence.

Evidence that the specific funded activity has been actually completed will be submitted where practical, including photos and videos
of before, during, and after activities, including images of the areas
of importance for construction and giveaways/how-to presentations.
The duration of this arrangement with Dash's Masternodes is from the
date of the first payout (the return of the submission fee in the first
week of May 2017) until the first week of July 2017 (the deadline for
reimbursement payments for which Skatopia provided evidence of
completion). The construction completion date is set for July 1st, 2017 or before, depending on what weekend weather permits, but it will
absolutely be completed by July 1st, 2017. That is the deadline date of
construction for the sake of this agreement. The date which concludes this agreement is the July date of our last payout (the first week in July).

To sum up, if the proposal is passed by the Masternodes, the 5 Dash
anti-spam submission fee will be returned along with the cost of the
project/sponsorship in three equal payments over a three month period,
from the 1st week in May 2017 until the 1st week in July 2017.


In the future we'd like to work directly with Core (perhaps Marketing)
on a pay-after-we-prove model for merchant adoptions based on
commission-only (so we only get paid for successful adoptions). Right
now, the budget system for proposals doesn't really allow that efficient
and risk mitigating model for the community for two reasons: A) the
payments over months have to be equal in amount, and B) the
pay-as-we-prove model is not easily implemented in a single proposal,
causing fees and risk on the side of the proposer to be ever increasing
and untenable. We believe we can score a large amount of merchant
adoptions through our for-profit and non-profit partners and sponsors,
so we're confident about working on commission. So, we're hoping this
proposal with a traditional funding model will pass, establishing trust
on both sides, so that we can work together in that way in the future
(until such a time it can be done directly on the network).

Interesting detail:

We are being extended a short term line of credit from a friend of the
park who first introduced us to Dash back in October of 2016. This
individual is confident enough in Dash's Masternodes and treasury system
to loan us the amount upfront we'd be short to complete the project
going into the last payment (the project completes on July 1st 2017, but
final payment won't come until days later). So, a Dash treasury
agreement is being used as the basis for the creation of credit in the
form of a loan in real life.


What is Skatopia?

Skatopia is an eighty-eight acre, nearly 22 year old non-profit
skateboard park and extreme sports destination located in Rutland, Ohio.
It's owned and operated by founder, Brewce Martin (a now retired
professional skateboarder). It features a museum of skateboarding
history with exhibits spanning nearly 100 years of skating culture,
thousands of unique boards, many ramps for skating (seven unique bowls),
two standalone stages for bands and one small stage for more intimate
shows, 88 acres of land for visitors to explore and enjoy, and the Pabst
House (the product of a former long term sponsorship with Pabst Beer
Company). It has a dedicated annual turnout which is dependable and
enthusiastic, and hails from all over the world.

Skatopia also has strong long term business relationships with dozens of
area businesses in several States, both as collaborators and sponsors,
some of which are featured on the skatopia.org website. The park was featured in an episode of MTV's 'True Life', 'Viva La Bam', Fuel TV's
countdown of 'Best Backyard Scenes', and more recently in an episode of
the documentary series on Netflix, 'Unplanned America'. The park was
also featured in the video game 'Tony Hawk's Underground 2', as the
final level. Further, it's constant coverage by skateboarding media led
to a profile in Rolling Stone. They also have a full length documentary
filmed on location over a several year period, 'Skatopia: 88 Acres of
Anarchy', which was an official selection of several film festivals,
including Sundance. More than a thousand bands have played live at
Skatopia
, including names like Black Flag, GWAR, Lamb of God, Immortal Technique, Green Jelly, etc.

At our last party at the end of March/beginning of April, we had no less
than 10 bands play live, and many of them played multiple days. That
annual party was the smallest of our annual parties. Our next event is
of comparable size, an educational conference, and it takes place in
early May. Every event following the conference is quite a bit larger. The event we are asking Dash to sponsor, along with the Dash Expansion, is
Bowl Bash 22, and it spans two consecutive weekends from June 16th-18th
to June 23rd-25th.
Some people will stay here during the week between parties, so the event is technically June 16th-25th, but fewer
people will be here on weekdays and the contracted vendor will not be
here, so we didn't include those extra days as part of the agreement.

There are two entities: Skatopia the museum and park, and Skatopia's
print shop. The print shop has the capability of printing stickers,
signs (up to billboard size), and t-shirt production. Skatopia also has
its own line of wheels for skateboards, in collaboration with Bones
Wheels, and had a shoe line with Draven (a company licensed to do work
for bands like The Misfits and The Ramones). Skatopia also had its own
clothing line through their deal with Volcom, and a skateboard line with
Eastern Skateboard Supplies.

Skatopia is also a community, with several people living on the premises
full time, contributing labor to the park and print shop to maintain
them, fill print orders, and set up for expansions (in preparation for
additional labor to realize the plans). In addition to in-house labor,
Skatopia has a small but constant flow of volunteers. Parties are held
to attract more labor for expansions, and are annual events.

Skatopia has one in-house vendor on location, a website, and an outsourced/contracted vendor that can all potentially offer Dash as a
payment option. The park also never closes. It's open 24 hours a day,
seven days a week
(although the contracted vendor is only present for parties and possibly conferences, and the in-house vendor keeps
regular business hours).


What Can Skatopia Offer The Dash Community?

What Skatopia can offer to the Dash community is a relatively large
following of people who can be made aware of the technology, an in-house
vendor that can adopt Dash as a payment option, a contracted vendor who
can adopt Dash, a website that can adopt Dash, several daily quick
presentations over the course of the next multi-day party on what Dash
is, how to download the wallet, receive and send payments, use instant
and private features, and how to use Dash at point-of-sale in real life.

Skatopia can also offer a large banner displaying that Dash is
sponsoring the next party. This also includes six medium size banners
posted all over the park to the same effect, and a t-shirt for the
presenter of the Dash how-to tutorials (identifying him instantly to
all, inducing conversations). The presenter will also get an area (or
"booth") near the vendors to set up for point-of-sale demonstrations and
general help, highlighted with a medium size banner.

We can also offer to name the new expansion of the Lula Bowl we are
constructing at the next party after Dash ("The Dash Expansion"). This
area is directly across from our second of three stages for live music
and other performances, assuring Dash marketing will feature heavily in
any large event. When sponsorship is in place the expansion is
permanently (barring unforeseen considerations*) named after the
sponsor. We have precedence for the market value of such an arrangement,
given past sponsorship and past marketing agreements for specific areas
of the park (the Pabst House, as part of the overall Pabst Beer Company
sponsorship deal, as one example). We also have some very long term and
loyal sponsors who have their brand featured all over the park
(Independent Truck Company, for example, and Volcom Industries). We may
market long term sponsors more than contractually obligated, as a show
of appreciation.

If this proposal passes, Skatopia will receive reimbursement for the funding necessary for the Dash Expansion, and Dash will receive in
return:

1. A new audience for Dash
2. An in-house vendor adoption
3. A website vendor adoption
4. A contracted vendor adoption
5. Several daily Dash how-to presentations (for the duration of the next
multi-day party) on how to download the wallet, sending and receiving
coins, using private and instant features, and using Dash for
in-real-life point-of-sale scenarios, etc.
6. Printing and hanging one very large banner and 6 medium sized banners** signaling Dash's sponsorship of the event and project
7. Printing a t-shirt for the presenter of the Dash how-to tutorials and giveaways
8. A large outdoor skateboard bowl expansion (obstacle) named after Dash
with a large pre-existing stage right across from it; this expansion
will feature the Dash logo painted all over the decks around the bowl
and on the back of the extension (logo includes the "digital cash"
phrase along with the Dash logo itself and website)
9. The above mentioned presenter will also hand out $5 in Dash to the
first 12 or 13 people per day (75 total people over the 6 days) who sit
through a presentation and/or downloads a Dash wallet at Bowl Bash 22,
then will steer the recipients to the participating vendors; prices are
structured in such a way as to promote people taking home a little Dash -
which promotes their return to spend it, and keeps them thinking about
Dash
10. Video and/or photo evidence of all of the above where possible and
practical (obviously the identity of some participants may not be
revealed due to their preference)***
11. Free entry into the park any time of the year for the duration of
the sponsorship for the Core Team, active Developers, and any other Dash
employee or person deemed a friend of the company (up to the mutual
discretion of Skatopia and Dash communities)
12. A box of "goodies" from the project mailed to Dash (if someone
provides us an address), possibly including some of the banners as
keepsakes, and definitely 25 stickers of the type handed out to everyone
at the party


(* 'unforeseen considerations' such as events that might damage the
reputation of Dash so severely as to negatively effect Skatopia's bottom
line; however, no such considerations have ever come to pass for any of
our sponsors, and Dash is also free to ask us to remove any sign of
sponsorship of the expansion at their discretion, as we are free to
remove it at any time, or remove Dash as a payment option, due to the
above mentioned reputation damage)

(**The large sign (banner) is 44 inches by 8 feet ; The six medium signs
(banners) are 2x2 feet; six flip-board signs for the how-to
presentations are 24x36 inches; one 2x2 feet sign for the Dash giveaway
and how-to area)

(***Photos and/or video will be presented of the area of construction
before major work begins, during the process of construction, and after
the completion of construction. Further evidence will be presented,
where practical, of the purchase of the concrete and other supplies.
Evidence will also be presented of any of the other aspects of the
project where practical, especially if requested.)


Schedule

The next event is on May 6th and 7th, 2017 (the S.E.E.D conference). The
next major party is scheduled for June 16th-18th and 23rd-25th, 2017
(the Bowl Bash). This agreement will sponsor the Bowl Bash party, our largest of the year (expecting minimum 1,000 people over the course of the two weekend, depending on weather). That is the event where the banners of sponsorship will be hung throughout
the park and the event we hand out free Dash and do how-to presentations
on how to use Dash.
The work on the Dash Expansion will be completed no later than July 1st, 2017. It may be completed sooner if
labor is available. Skatopia is incentivized to get the work done while
we have all the extra labor at the events, so proscrastination on the
project is not an option.

Concrete Supplies
Concrete: 20 yards at $114 per yard = $2280
Shot-Crete Operator: $30 per hour for 8 hours = $240
Boom/pump truck: $150 per hour for 8 hours + $3 per yard for 20 yards +
$100 for 100 additional feet of boom at $1 per foot = $1360

Total = $3880

Rebar: 15 3/8" 20 foot lengths at $4.77 per stick and 50 1/2" 20 foot lengths at $7.53 per stick = $448

Total = $793

Print Materials
1 Large Size Sign (Banner at the Entrance): 44 inches by 8 foot at $1 per square foot = $29
6 Medium Size Signs (Sponsor Awareness Park-wide): 2x2 feet at $24 for all six = $24

Total = $142

Promotional $5 in Dash Giveaway
Free Dash Fund: $5 in Dash for 25 minimum unique people per day for 3
days (we are expecting 1000 people for the Bowl Bash's weekend) = $375

Total = $375 in Dash

Paint Materials
3 colors of paint at $7 per color and $8 in brushes = $29

Total = $29

Labor Costs****
Presenter's Time (Tony): 8 hours = $80
Printer's Time (Brandon and Shawn): 10 hours for design, printing, etc.
(Brandon), 3 hours for cutting and clean-up (Shawn) = $130
Shirt Maker's Time (Brandon): hours for design, template, production = included in the cost of the shirt
Promoter's Time (Brewce): 6 hours handing out stickers that include Dash references) = $60
Video and Photo Technician's Time: 2 hours (Tim, Brandon, and Shawn) = $60
Laborer's Time (Tim and Shawn): 6 hours for help with above mentioned jobs (Tim and Shawn) = $120
Painter's Time (Brandon): 6 hours = $60

Total = $510

Proposal Fee
Proposal Fee Reimbursement = 5 Dash

Total = 5 Dash

Grand Total (all prices will be translated into Dash values and locked in at the price on the date of the proposal's submission to
the network...this price will be specified at the time of the proposal
submission) = $6,258 (in Dash) and 5 Dash


****Hourly pay is calculated at what we thought, given local economic
conditions, was a fair (but not high) wage of $10 an hour. The labor
seeking compensation is ONLY the labor used to do the presentations,
distribute the free Dash, print the materials needed for both, make the
shirt for the person doing both, producing video proof of our
activities, handing out Dash promotional material (stickers), and help
place, erect, paint, etc. any of the larger signs, especially the
largest one. No other labor is asking for compensation. The Dash
Expansion will be built by the collaborative labor of dozens of
volunteers who came to the park events. The vast majority of labor for
this project will be volunteer labor. We only asked for compensation for
tasks that require labor before all the volunteers show up (when labor
is in short supply and therefore at a premium) or that is done
exclusively to educate the public about using Dash, either as a vendor
or consumer. All Labor Costs are total for the entire multi-day event.


Payment Schedule

Three equal payments will be paid out in three consecutive months (May, June, and July 2017).

Payment A (in the first week of May 2017) = 2,086 (in Dash) and 1.66 Dash
Payment B (in the first week of June 2017) = 2,086 (in Dash) and 1.66 Dash
Payment C (in the first week of July 2017) = 2,086 (in Dash) and 1.66 Dash


The $5 in Dash we're giving away to 75 unique people over 6 days (75
total people out of the expected 1,000 minimum coming). Of the remaining
amount ($5,883), $5113 of it is directly the cost of the construction
project. The other $770 is directly related to Dash activities,
promotions, marketing, etc.

So, essentially, Dash's budget system is paying 5 Dash to accept the
proposal (reimbursement), $1,145 ($375 + $770) to promote Dash, give it
away to 75 people, pay for tutorials, and all the other merchant and
marketing aspects of the agreement over the six day Bowl Bash event, and
lastly $5,113 for lifetime sponsorship (and advertisement) of the Dash
Expansion of the Lula Bowl. As per our usual sponsorship agreements for
construction, the cost of construction is the cost of the sponsorship.
The rest is purely to promote Dash at the party. Beyond construction,
voluntary labor will be used to adopt Dash as a payment option for
Skatopia's website, their in-house vendor, and their contracted vendor,
plus any other technical help needed to fulfill the tasks in the
agreement.

Payment Address:

Xgikc9g1FRR3Nr9LAF54YLk1KfR4p9rZRZ



Standards of Evidence

Evidence will be presented in the form of pictures and video of the work
site before, during and after construction, of concrete trucks, the
shot-crete operator, his equipment, actual concrete, paid labor, etc.
Receipts will be presented where possible for any of the above and for
tools, etc. The printing process will be filmed and/or photographed. In
every practical and possible way where reasonable, we will provide
evidence of our expenses and met obligations for this agreement.

We are known widely to use re-purposed materials, scrap and otherwise used or salvaged materials where possible to reduce costs, so it is
possible some costs may end up less than the prices listed in the Budget
section of this agreement.
This will not effect the promised amount of sponsorship marketing. Originally, we wanted to do this proposal on a
pay-after-proof model, so our use of such materials would have
benefited the Dash community. As the proposal is currently constructed
this use of materials may appear to disadvantage the community, but rest
assured, if any such cost change happens we will be transparent about
it and make up for it in a way that pleases the community. We just know
the solution can't be to buy brand new items we don't actually need. We
try to do our part to keep our environment healthy.


Future Projects

If successful with this proposal, we have many exciting ideas for future
proposals on how to expand the acceptance of Dash among
vendors/merchants in our area and with whom we have strong business
relationships.

We've already begun discussing adoption with some of our larger sponsors, and we're pleased to report they are receptive to the idea. We also noticed previous projects aimed at adoption were paid upfront, or despite lack of results (but not because of lack of effort, necessarily). We can use a reimbursement model here by offering to get adoptions based on commission. We won't ask for payment for a single adoption that doesn't occur first. Again, this idea is reliant on the same pay-after-proof model, which requires a level of trust to make it happen between ourselves and your Marketing team, which is why future proposals are somewhat dependent on this one succeeding.

We also saw talk of a contest, perhaps, in which per capita area
adoption would be the criteria by which victory is judged. We'd like to
mention Skatopia is located in a town of less than 400 people and we
know most of the vendors. We want to see a world where decentralized
digital cash is all that's necessary to use if one chooses, so we could
set out to get every vendor we use ourselves to adopt Dash. The first
targets for adoption would be merchants with which we are already well
associated through Skatopia. The second targets will be businesses we
ourselves use (to attempt to create a local/small Dash-only-option
ecosystem). The third targets would be "cold sales" to vendors in our
larger area (nearby towns, etc.). The targets would be done in that
order in hopes that some of the third targets have connections to the
first and second. Some targets may require an incentive to adopt, the
structure of which we'll propose at a later date.

We also have toured all over the North America, Europe and South America. We have contacts in the concert and extreme sports business,
and may go on tour again in the near future. If so, we have a pink
limousine that would look great with Dash plastered all over it with
advertisement signs...so a possible sponsorship and mobile info/adoption
tour could take place parallel to our own tour.


Skatopia also is hired to build community skate parks and other such
projects from time to time, so there is a possibility of us accepting
Dash for more than just park-related activities.

We have several annual parties/concerts and a conference, several of which we are already advertising on social media and our mailing list.

We have a few other ideas, including partnering with us to give away
food at local food banks and community centers to those in need, but I
think we've given the Masternodes a general idea for now of our level of
interest and willingness to labor for the advancement of Dash.


Closing Statement

Skatopia hopes the Dash Masternodes will see the value in this project
proposal, in terms of more vendor adoption, more in-real-life use cases
and ecosystem development, long term advertising to a receptive
demographic, and the possibility of not only a permanent structure
providing long term marketing to a location with thousands of annual
visitors, but also a possible long term, mutually beneficial business
relationship.

We have enclosed a quick video introduction (don't mind the lens smudge;
we've been known to get muddy) and slideshow of the park, some of the
pro athletes who visit here, and the location relevant to this specific
proposal. The area of construction is shown from several angles at the
end of the video/slideshow. We may add some pictures and videos
throughout the month of April for your enjoyment. Please enjoy, and
thank you all for your very valuable time.

Is there cell service at the event, for people to open new wallets? And do you plan (I hope) to insert the words "digital cash" underneath the word "DASH" in all the ad spots? Thanks!

Hi Amanda,

Yes, we get cell phone service in various areas of the park (not most of the 88 acres, but a reasonable amount in the hearts of it). We also are setting up a booster and moving one of the wifi spots so it is more ideal for our event. Our vendors are near the location and the booster. At least 3 people who live there use their smart phones constantly. And the sticker design just got completed today actually for one set of stickers...there's another set that feature the following design as well, but also with the "Bowl Bash 22" on it, and "sponsored by"...

Dash
Digital Cash
www.dash.org

Each line is successively smaller than the other, the font is from the resources page of the website, and they are bumper sticker size, I believe. We haven't printed yet, and haven't posted the design yet...we'll make a run at them sometime this week hopefully, maybe tomorrow if we can get a few construction things done. The other stickers I mentioned above are a bit smaller, I believe, but we haven't designed them yet. We've been getting a lot of welding done and rebar bent.

And yes, every single paint stenciled or hand painted Dash logo will feature that three line pattern. Also, we're occupying space next to the stage right across from the expansion, will have a bonfire next to the Expansion, and we will be there recording interviews with people both about Dash and about the reasons why the came to Skatopia and what they think about the current state of the world. We are doing everything we can to make sure Dash is the center of attention for this event, which is not easy given we have three stages full of bands going both weekends for days at a time. Any event recordings done by press will be asked to film with Dash logos in the background, although we never know who is going to show, if anyone...it's random unless in the off season.

We will be releasing the list of bands playing at the stage right across from the Dash Expansion later this week. We're also doing a skate competition in the area as well, and of course will film as much of it as possible.

Who's an appreciative recipient of a sponsorship? We are :)

"Brandon William Martin
18 hrs ·

We are to be holding another skate competition at the Lula bowl around 3 PM on Saturday the 24th. There will be prizes and live bands playing on the stage next to the Lula!"

I can't see any way this wouldn't pass because the proposal is amazing. I noticed you guys did a lot of due diligence preparing the proposal and feeling out the community. If for some reason, this doesn't pass, I'd be happy to personally reimburse you for the proposal fee.

Wow, thx! That's really awesome! To be honest, we only risked about 3 Dash...the other 2 were donated by community members. We have to thank a lot of people for small tips, but especially philadashia. He raised most of it himself, and we never met him until this process, so really very nice of him.

Yes. There are enough funds, and these guys seem genuine, professional, and excited about Dash. That will go far.

I love this idea :) I love skaters, love kids (mostly kids skating, though older people too) so I'll support this one :D

Oh, and to sound like I'm a serious person, LOL, I'll say this is two things. Lifetime exposure of Dash to a hobby (hopefully in photos in magazines, etc...) and people who use the facility but also, in my mind, this is a little Dash philanthropy.

I would mention, we have corporate sponsors such as Pabst Beer Company, Volcom, etc., and they do indeed see market value in just such sponsorship deals. But we also accept donations, so any way it is viewed by the MNs, is fine by us :)

This looks like a well balanced proposal. I like the budgetary detail and the fact that it's adoption oriented.

On the face of it it looks good value for money and also a great cause to support. I might vote yes to this once I've looked into it further.

Thx, and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I think you will enjoy our Future Projects section of the proposal as well, if adoption is a priority :)
