This is a high risk/high reward job. As the Point Man, you are essentially the organizer. Most likely, the night’s activities were your idea. If the itinerary you lay out is awesome and everyone has a good time, you’re the hero. If the events are not fun, well… that goes on your permanent record.
What’s that? You’re ready to step up and design a soiree of fun for your friends? OK, here’s the difficult part: You’ll be spending half the night fielding texts and firing off messages of logistics to everyone. You need to be firm and decisive! You make a meeting time and you stick to it! You have the addresses of all the places you’ll be going to and the times you expect to be there! People will forget where they’re going, they’ll come late, they’ll want to know if they’re on the guest list. Make sure your phone is charged. If it dies, the evening is lost.
Your friends are awesome, but when you’re the Point Man, they’re like a bunch of preschool children. Tell them what to do and where to go and they’ll love you for it.
