It's great that you want to organise an AWS DeepRacer event. Depending on your circumstances it can take a number of forms. While we have already had some meetups and workshops organised by AWS, organisations and individual enthusiasts, there are many possible ways to run an event. As a community we are determined to build a set of resources to make it easier for you to organise your own event and are counting on your feedback to provide a complete guide for those who follow. The best place to start is to visit the #meetup-organisation channel in the [http://join.deepracing.io community Slack].

To teach and encourage new members into the DeepRacer world.
 
Have their training efforts show off in the real track with a friendly league competition (fastest lap wins).

Anybody and everybody interested in Machine learning, no prior experience required.
 
Although anyone can get involved it's nice to have attendees interested in Machine learning.

Any area large enough for a physical track.
 
8x10 metres is the largest track out at the moment. (2019 Championship Track), though at the time of writing it isn't available to order yet.

The track is usually the most tricky part of preparing for an event - if you want physical racing to happen you need the space (re:Invent 2018: 5x8m, re:Invent 2019: 10x8m) and the track itself.

An alternative solution is to borrow a track: [[AWS DeepRacer track owners]]

You can see that a lot can be made without a car or the track. Depending on company involvement and interest it may be possible to obtain a car and a track or invite an organisation that has those and offers a day racing, for instance AWS.
