Hotel Playa Negra in Guanacaste on the North Pacific coast of Costa Rica.
After a massively successful MCON.fun we came up with the concept of renting out a space that was more tight knit and doing some planning to create a deeper team style building bonding experience. @zakku from CoordinAPE has offered this space conveniently located next to his property in Costa Rica, the bungalows can hold between 2-3 people per unit, 14 bungalows x 3 = 42 +/- so that would be the amount of spaces. I suggest we make this a Kickback event as it’s crucial that people who reserve the space are serious. The price of the entire place for one week is roughly $7000, we would need a handful of staff on-site to lead us through various activities and exercises.
March - April, depending on availability of the space.
I propose the following staff be commissioned and flown down 3 days early to prep the space, buy supplies and outfit the property for our needs.
@Organically_Rich Breathe work, Yoga, Strength Training, Mindfulness, Guided Mediation.
@Joeseph meal prep, lighting, music, ambiance, overall activities coordinator.
Myself, overall all booking, coordination, staffing, and executive production of the event.
I suggest we allocate a $15,000 budget for food, lodging, cars & entertainment for 30 members of the DAO ( if that many people want to come) Then we invite 12 members of other DAO’s CoordinAPE, Yearn, 1Hive, Tally, GitcoinDAO, MGD, et al
We give everyone roles to play while on the island, documentation, coordination, planning, booking, etc etc and we begin the first in a series of DAO offsite events that would act a play book for other DAO’s looking to bond their community together and explore finding greater cohesion around their mission.
DAO’s are not just communities, they are working groups that could benefit massively from this type of intimate gathering. If we can bring together the right group of people and successfully execute a small scale gathering as I have proposed I believe we will spark an industry shift towards focusing on the health and wellness of the a DAO’s members, MetaCartel has always gone first so it should be no surprise that we are moving in this direction first as well. I think we have massive upside to be realized from executing this event and I’m extremely excited to start mapping it out with the support and insights from the group.
