Task Sign Up – May Long Weekend

We are bringing back the sign-up sheet from last season.  At several events last year we had people who did not sign up to participate.  For this season, we will be comparing sign-ups to the list from log and if you haven’t signed up, we will be assigning you an NPC shift.  We will be tracking attendance at NPC camp.

If you are NPCing, you are not required to remove any make-up modifiers.

Once you have done 3 full time NPC shifts in a year, you are not required to sign up anymore.

Lastly, we are open to negotiation, if you have a suggestion on what you would like to do in lieu of NPCing or one of the other items on the list, please come speak with me and we can discuss.

Winter IBGAs

The plot team is ready to start receiving Winter IBGAs.  Here are the important dates:

Submission of Winter IBGAs: February 1 – March 11

Responses Delivered By: April 24 (We will attempt to get anything that would influence the day event done in advance but cannot guarantee)

We have not strictly enforced the IBGA guidelines over the past couple of years but this year we will be sending IBGAs back and asking for them to be resubmitted if they don’t align.  Attached is the updated 2016 Guidelines for IBGAs.  Even if you have read before, please review.

Winter IBGAs can be longer than regular IBGAs and have a bit more flexibility around the number and type of actions that can be taken.
