DON’T SKIP STEP 1

DON’T SKIP STEP 1

As we hurtle towards preparing for G.A.M.E. EXPO Year 9, now only a month away … we are getting schedules set and information posted.  We’ve run into some snags.  If you were filling out a game registration or a henchmen schedule or whatnot — and skipped STEP 1 — you’ve been naughty!

We HAVE TO get your membership registration filled out so we know who you are and such.  So, please make sure you do STEP ONE first!  If you need to set-up a Membership Registration for some form you’ve already submitted — just go directly here: http://springfieldgame.com/member-registration-page/

Thank you.

Game Masters & Volunteers Deadline Extended!

Game Masters & Volunteers Deadline Extended!

Hey everybody!

If you are a Game Master and are planning to schedule some games to get a free weekend pass you can still do that through September 15th!   http://springfieldgame.com/gamemasters/

If you want to be a Henchmen (Volunteer) and earn a free weekend pass you can also do that through September 15th!  http://springfieldgame.com/volunteer/

Game Masters — we are working on getting gaming request scheduled — not to worry you’ll see your games on the schedule very soon.

Henchmen / Volunteers — if you cannot make it to one of our last 3 meetings — you can still be approved to volunteer.  Just contact Taneesa Hall or Chris Stuart to explain your situation.  If you have someone we know that can vouch for you — that will make the process easier.

TABLES & NUMBER OF PLAYERS

TABLES & NUMBER OF PLAYERS

ATTENTION GMS!  If you have already submitted a game or multiples, we are working on getting these posted within the next week or so.  Thank you for your patience.  You DO NOT need to resubmit with table choices.  We will assign those based on what information we’ve received. You are all good.

Going forward with all submitted pre-scheduled games, this is now the rules below.

As we plan for tables and pre-scheduled games at Year 9, we want to address an issue from Year 8.

We had some games that grabbed tables and did so without checking in at GAME HQ and this screwed up pre-scheduled games and our ability to schedule tables correctly.

For Year 9, as always, pre-scheduled games submitted online get first table assignments.   Pick-up games scheduled during the 3 days of GAME get scheduled by GAME HQ based on available space.

Available table arrangements are:

  • 1 table for up to 6 players
  • 2 tables for 8 to 10 players
  • 3 tables for 12 to 14 players
  • 4 tables for 18 to 20 players

Games larger than 20 players, we will not be able to accommodate.  You’ll need to break these games into smaller groups.

We are very accommodating to pick-up and prescheduled games, but tables must be assigned by GAME HQ.  If you grab tables and chairs your game will not be allowed to be run.   Thanks for you patience and understanding.
