SPARTYS IMPLEMENTATION Meet with Demmer Center building to see if it’s a viable space. A break even analysis would need to be done to see if it’s economical. Because it’s a general fund building, you will have to go through Physical Plant and get an architect involved. Planning items such as a technical drawing, hours of operation, training information, number of employees, etc. would need to be submitted to the Ingham Health Dept. for ground breaking approval (need to submit a plan review). Ingham county approval (up to 30 days for approval) Hire a general contractor Order all materials (wall, lights, shelving, food equipment, etc.) for the store It will take about 6 months once Ingham County approves
ARCADE 3 games, Big buck hunter, Crane game, and Golden tee All non-violent, the shooting game is hunting focused
The website was redesigned to include the most important and relevant information while maintaining the new Demmer Sports branding. The homepage includes the hours of operation, upcoming events, and an embedded Google Map of the location of the shooting center. Each page is designed to provide a clean, user-friendly interface where viewers can easily access the information they are looking for without getting lost in excess content.
Each Social Media page is included on every page of the site to provide easy access to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Instagram. Including these social media handles will improve the websites Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Social Media Optimization (SMO). The Social Media Strategy for Demmer Sports is fairly straightforward. A simple revamp of the Demmer Facebook page to apply the new branding, as well as creating Twitter, Google+, and Instagram handles to further amplify communication. Each page will be actively populated with videos and photos of the Demmer Shooting Center as well as relevant articles and posts to engage with fans and followers.

Demmer Sports launches Basketball half-time show Nerf gun fight to be held at half-time show of Michigan State basketball game
EAST LANSING, Mich. —Demmer Sports, Target Shooting and Education Center, has planned to launch a half-time event at Michigan State Men’s Basketball games. Starting in the fall of 2014 the event will present a demonstration using Nerf guns with special guest, head coach, Tom Izzo. This event will be on a volunteer, first-come first-served basis and participants will be provided with a green or white Demmer T-shirt to represent their teams. This initiative is meant to encourage students, faculty and fans to sign up and become a member at Demmer Sports. This event will also make those attending aware of what the Demmer Center has to offer. Demmer Sports differs from other shooting ranges because it is a training and educational facility that offers both indoor and outdoor archery ranges as well as indoor ballistic ranges. “The Demmer Center will provide our students and the public with first-class instruction, skill development, education and training opportunities in a state-of-the-art facility, one day we want to see an MSU Spartan as an Olympic shooting athlete,” said -William W. Taylor of the Fisheries and Wildlife Department. Since opening in 1950 the Demmer Center is one of the only organizations in the United States that offers onsite educational training and utilizes the latest shooting range technology while remaining environmentally friendly.

Demmer Sports Hosts Archery Team Fundraiser Very first archery club fundraiser at Noodles and Company
EAST LANSING, Mich. — The Demmer Center for Shooting Sports is planning to host a new fundraiser event for the archery team on Friday September 6th, 2013 from 4-8pm. This fundraiser is designed to create a certain percentage of profits from the meals purchased during the event that will go towards funding the archery team. The goal is to not only raise funds for the archery team, but also draw in new members and educate them about the Demmer Center. Team members will set up displays showing pictures of the team, Demmer Center branding along with facts about the team and the center. The Demmer Center is unique because it is an educational center that offers a variety of classes from beginner to advanced in both archery and ballistics including Bow-hunting, Bow-fishing, Archery 101, Introductory Rifle and Pistol classes and the NRA Basic Pistol Class. “ It feels great to be helping Michigan State University bring a world class facility to its campus for the promotion of shooting sports” said John Demmer creator of the Demmer Center. For over 60 years the Demmer Center is one of the only shooting centers in the United States that offer’s hands on training before you begin shooting while also remaining environmentally friendly.
AWARENESS In initial surveys we found that 84% of respondents did not know what Demmer Sports was. To comabt this we updated the signage to display the new logo. The use of brand imagery makes it more appealing than the current textbased sign, and also more identifiable.
