Registration supposedly opens on May 4 - 9 days away.  But the event schedule with the actual event numbers has not been posted.

Seems like Origins is having their normal level of "organization."

Glad those Executive Director changes have cleared up the problems!

While we wait for the guys at Origins to unfuggle the event listings, here's the list of what we're planning to run.  There's always a chance something can change, but this is what we're shooting for

Are the dates on those correct?  You've got things on the 14-16, which is Fri-Sun.... that seems kind of odd.

On the Kriegsspiel, I'm doing one of the online ones currently.  Will I be fine signing up for one of the ones without doing the intro?  And I'm debating the Command Post, but is it the same scenario that's been run the past couple years?  I really enjoy it, but if it's the same situation I kind of remember a bit about that and wouldn't want what I know to spoil things for those who aren't in the know.

Scott, let me double-check this morning. It might have been some weirdness in the way the Excel date formulas converted into the table

Can you put names with events? I ordered some of those plastic table tents and can print up event pages to put in them.

That's exactly what happened - if you look, the table thinks these events are all happening in 2023.  :Loser:




I'm fixing it now....   :nerd:

on the LNLPUBLISHING.COM forum DHeath at one point said the only convention they plan to attend this year is WBC.  Is that still true?  Will they not be attending ORIGINS?

wargaming for 40+ years, win percentage is still way below the mendoza line ... hmmm, should that bother me?

We have a vendor that will be representing them. Rick, I still owe you a couple of answers on some games and I'll try to finalize that for you this week.

Just went to see what it was like. I was number 613 "in a queue of 613people".  ::)

Sounds like you are as unprepared for it as I am Cataclysm.  :whistle:
