Last Minute Booths / Tables Waiting List?

Last Minute Booths / Tables Waiting List?

If we have anything to announce it will be a race to see WHO’S THE FASTEST?

We do not have a waiting list for last-minute cancellations and tables or booths opening up.  If you are hoping for any last-minute booths or tables to open up, they very well might.  It happened last year, and it might happen this year too.  Your best bet is to be registered with our site, and the emails that result from a new post will come to you.

Also make sure you join the Facebook group for Eclectic Endeavors and follow the G.A.M.E. EXPO page.

DM BATTLE CANCELLED – GAME DAY ON!

DM BATTLE CANCELLED – GAME DAY ON!

On August 2nd we had to formally cancel the Dungeon Master Battle.  We hated doing this. The event was originally scheduled for July 9th.  This was the Sunday after the 4th of July weekend and that was probably a mistake.  We had ZERO pre-registrations about a week before the event.  We decided to postpone the event to August 13th rather than cancel.  Doing that so close to the event — about a week out — we ruffled some feathers.   We also heard from others that the new 8/13 date was great.  So we had another month for people to sign up.  At our latest meeting for Eclectic Endeavors we decided that we needed a deadline for sign-ups so that if we needed to just cancel the event we would give everyone plenty of notice.  August 1st was the deadline.  We posted this notice on FB along side all the event notices.

Over the next 3 weeks we posted the event everywhere we could.  We spent money with Facebook post boosting as an advertising effort.  This resulted in the event being seen by about 2,500 people.  Great reach.  In that time we only had 3 people sign-up and got 1 DM nomination.  So on August 2nd we made the very hard decision to cancel the event.  If we had any idea that people out there were waiting to sign-up and couldn’t meet the 8/1/17 deadline we would have kept the event open.  We just need to get a post reply, and email, facebook message. ….. something to let us know.   We did get a spike in G.A.M.E. EXPO Weekend Pass sign-ups.  Great, but weird.  😉    No one contacted us to ask about signing up later — after the 8/1/17 deadline.

So, we will STILL HAVE AN EVENT on Sunday 8/13/17.  We will do an unofficial GAME DAY from 12PM to 6PM.  Let us know you are coming on the FB Event page:  https://www.facebook.com/events/120312328611175

It is an UNOFFICIAL GAME DAY as we will not have snacks & drinks for sale or a game library.  Just the space, tables and chairs.  Show up with your stuff, hang out and play.   Chris Stuart will be running a 5th Edition D&D game with pre-generated characters.  Once he has 4 players at his table he will begin.   He can accept up to 8 players max.  Come join us!  Bring your own games and let people know on the FB event.  See you there!
