Things we need to figure out:

  • Launch Party - Carrie + Aida
  • Publicity:
    • Recruitment - signup sheet, other details?
    • Registration: get a detailed description of their current state and goals:
      goal definition, list of things you already do, list of things you want to try, initial fitness test
  • Group formation - suggest group goals
    • mentoring component to help achieve goals
  • Tracking progress - points system to promote both the personal and social elements of working out
    • personal goals
    • competitive among groups
    • Carrie suggests: provide sample goals to get people started. Ashu suggests everyone on the planning committee contribute 3,4 goals. Goals can be either getting better at something, OR learning something new
  • OWLympics - end of semester
    • Plan during the semester by polling participants
  • Can we get digital IRB consent? 
  • Carrie - should the program expand to include both physical and mental well being? 

To-do items:

  9. Mentoring - Mark, Sam
    1. Sam - suggests that the OWLympics committee contacts clubs & requests clinics, then has the responsibility for actually hosting goes to the specific student club
    2. Surbhi - mentors should be people who can just help you try something out without 'looking dumb' or being confused
  10. Group goals - Chad, Aida

Points system
  1. Names on the leaderboard: only thing visible publicly is points, not activities
  2. Questions:
    1. What is visible to others? Make this an option.
    2. Do you want to see the leaderboard? Make it an option.
  3. Points assignment to groups:
  4. Level up! Points can move you up! To another arbitrary level!
