Origins held a live-stream last night to provide some updated info

Quote
For those that couldn't join here is some info I captured from the live stream:

Just got done watching the live stream. Really informative. Thank You origins team!

❗Masks will be required. No plans to change this

❗Currently nothing officially asking people of they are vacinated. A bit of a gray area for asking people this for business so currently not being required to be asked.

❗Show will open at noon Thursday run till Sunday afternoon.

❗Origins will have a lot less space than previous years. This means less events can physically be ran.

❗There have been some adjustments made to GM & Volunteer  requirements for badge & perk compensation. This is a result for losing a day.

❗Event organizers and GMs registered for the news letter will be getting an email tomorrow with information around specific dates for submissions and layouts. As well as GM perk adjustment. Including 2 new badge options for GMs!

❗No onsite Badge Sales. All badges must be purchased ahead of show and online.

❗Some dates mentioned on the stream:

June 1: Hotel block opens

June 4- July 28: Event Submission window

June 8: Call for volunteers

June 26: Badge Sales open

Sept. 11: Event Registration opens

Man, I'd love to do 2nd World War at Sea and Age of Dogfights.  Can't see them easing up on travel restrictions up here any time soon tough.

Yeah, attendance is going to be rough this year even before factoring in international restrictions

Maybe next year?

Wish I'd be there this year, but on top of all the standard questions/issues, Origins moved to the same weekend as my local con. I'll miss all of you, but I already paid for CinCityCon and it comes with the added bonus of not requiring a hotel for the weekend.

Hope to see you all next year, though! It's been too long!

There's a few folks knocking around here that if they said they would be at Origins, I would do my best to be there, too.  Did it for Martok.  Did it for mirth.  SDR is on that list, too.  I honestly don't think we have a gaming thing in common, but, anyone who has the sense of humor to use a handful of crows in his sig line and call it, "Attempted Murder," is my kind of messed up ;)

Yeah, I'm sad I missed the Martok Origins.

I'm likewise bummed I missed the bbmike and mirth Origins.  Would love to see the rest of the guys again as well.  (I was originally hoping I could go this year, but there's simply been too much up in the air, both generally and specifically for myself.) 


I *am* returning at some point, however, and the sooner the better.  I've promised myself that.

Preview for this week!

https://www.armchairdragoons.com/events/cons/o2021preview/

This preview includes some map info, booth locations for companies we typically deal with, and event grids for our Armchair Dragoons events, plus extracts from the 'big' event list for everything that was labeled "wargame" and another for "historical"

Note that those categories are applied by the person submitting the event, so there are things in the "historical" category that most wargamers would never get anywhere near.  But there are also things in the "historical" category that are <i>not</i> marked as "wargame" even though they definitely are.
