The dog days of summer are no more…
Okay, my phone has been burning up lately. Folks have been missing Saskatoon speed dating this July. Someone even emailed asking me to find them a wife. (If I could do that, believe me I would be a very wealthy woman!)
Thanks for having patience while I take some much-needed time off with my hubby.
Saskatoon Speed Dating Dates Announced
Luckily, Do Sask is making up for the time away with not one, not two, not three, but FOUR events coming up to set you up for a summer of lovin’:
AUGUST 1, ages 24 – 38
AUGUST 15, ages 44 – 58
AUGUST 29, ages 34-48
SEPTEMBER 12, ages 21-31
Every Other Tuesday at The Hose & Hydrant Pub
I’m thrilled to announce The Hose & Hydrant Pub is now a regular host venue for Saskatoon Speed Dating very other Tuesday starting at 7 p.m.! They have generously let us take over half of the bar to give you a shot at love.
Let’s give Anton, Ana, and the servers at the Hose a big round of applause next time, shall we?
Save up to $50!
Tickets are $35 including taxes and fees via Eventbrite, or $25 cash throughout summer at the Thursday Night Art Market. Register for up to 5 speed dating tickets in advance to save up to $50 on speed dating.
Offer ends September 7, 2017.
$35 Registration Announcement
In case you missed my latest FB announcement, I’d like to thank all of the speed daters who took part my pre-launch events in the first half of 2017.
It’s been a blast trying new things with you as we grow this awesome activity in Saskatoon.
Due to the popularity of Saskatoon speed dating and the increased demand that they require, you will notice that the cost per ticket will be $35 including all taxes and fees at our subsequent speed dating nights.
This will not only make it possible for me to keep hosting events, but you’ll get extra value in your ticket with better quality supplies available, a minimum date guarantee and an array of local event options coming soon!
Your ticket still includes matching, a complementary drink and appetizers. There is no other provider in Saskatoon that offers this value.
Additionally, Do Sask will not run events unless there is a minimum of 14 people registered in advance.
That means you’re guaranteed at least 7 dates, or you’ll get your money back.
The Matching Process
Most people ask about how matching works, so I thought I’d give you the rundown. It takes between two to three hours to match all attendees and reconcile the data to ensure that no mistakes have been made. (Sometimes clerical errors happen, but I try very hard to avoid that!)
When you hand in your match card at the end of the night, I organize it the following morning on a spreadsheet (from SpeedDater):
Match + Match = Dating Match
Match + Friend = Friendship Match
Friend + Friend = Friendship Match
Match + No = No Match
Friend + No = No Match
No + No = No Match
I then follow up with each and every match to let them know the details of their connections which takes about 1.5 hours.
When all is said and done, the entire matching process takes about 4 hours on average. This doesn’t include the time spent finding the people to attend speed dating, advertising, setting up the venue, setting up ticketing, selling tickets, etc.
If you have any additional questions or concerns related to this increase, or you want to register for an upcoming event contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
