Crafting/FGotM Meeting – 11/17/18

Hey Folks!

We’re planning a crafting social as well as a FGotM Meeting on November 17th, prior to the Camarilla/Anarch/IA game. Here’s our tentative schedule for it:

Crafts Social 11:00 am – 3:00pm
Featured Game Meeting – 3:30pm – 5:00pm
Break for Dinner at 5:00pm
Cam/Anarch/IA at its normal time.

The thought is to get together to help craft decor (and maybe get ideas for costuming) for our upcoming Featured Game themes. Then, following that, have our Featured Game meeting to discuss where we are and what needs to be done yet.

The location for the social and the meeting will be the home of the Hislops (address to go out in email).

Thanks!

Would you like to help out?

Hi there!

 

So we are about 3 months out from our FGoTM in January.  WOW.

 

This is a GREAT event that our Domain hosts every year, and is very well attended by folks from all over the Region (sometimes we even get folks in from other Regions).  We can’t pull this event off without YOUR HELP.  Our Domain is known for being able to throw a great event, and that happens with the help of members of the Domain like you.

 

(you see where this is going, don’t you?)

 

If you are interested in helping out with the event, we will HAPPILY accept your assistance.  We need folks to help with setup and tear down, to help watch the Charity table(s), assist as Narrators, assist with registration, and even be available to help ensure our folks continue to have a great (safe) time, after the games have ended.

 

If you know what you would like to help out with – we have a handy-dandy sign up form for Volunteers

 

https://goo.gl/forms/OLdVRGRkCQOwHDxC3

 

Take a look at what we need, and if you can spare some time, sign up to help out.

 

Not sure what you can do to help?  Drop me a note, and we can talk.  (maybe you just want to lurk on the Staff list and learn how all of this works…that’s ok too… teaching and learning is a thing that I approve of greatly).

 

Looking forward to another GREAT FGoTM.
