An Exciting Day At The Park

I've come to realize that things don't just magically get better on their own. I'm thinking next Saturday(the 23rd), we should have a large and exciting day at the park. People should come out and have fun, invite their friends, et cetera. I will run as many fast-paced and awesome battlegames as I can.

Do you have friends outside the game who might appreciate a day of fun? Have you been thinking about asking somebody to come to Amtgard? This weekend will be the perfect time to bring them out! We should talk to as many people as we can and get people to come to Amtgard on the 23rd. If we really focus on recruiting new people, and they come out to an exciting day at the park, maybe we can hit an upswing on attendance and Amtgard will be a magical and fun place for everybody once again. Loaner garb and weapons will be available, so there should be no obstacle to fun for new players!

Have you been out of Amtgard for a while and are maybe looking for a day to come to the park and see old friends? This could be the perfect time to do exactly that! Old faces that have been out for a time would really brighten everyone's day.

Shave Lurkers head at harvest war.

So I'm not exactly sure how this came about but I'm going to assume that since it worked for Twig we were going to find other people to shave. I offered but apparently my hair is too short to raise any money, which leaves us with Judas and Lurker both men with locks that would put many girls to shame. Judas unfortunately doesn't reside in PV and has a high self-worth. Lurker on the other hand we coerced into shaving his head for a measly 100 dollars. Sooooo the idea behind this is if any group of people can collect 100.00 dollars and put it as a bounty we'll tie Lurker down and shave his head (well maybe not tie him down, we'll see how much of a fight he puts up first).

Summer 2009 Crown Qual Results

Copy Pasted from the PV list for those users who do not have access or do not regularly check the PV list.

I've compiled all the information except for gaming. There was some confusion
over it, and rather than give wrong information regarding it, I will wait until
I have some clarification over the results. That being said, here is the rest.

Progress so far

Ok, I've got the basics for the input stuff done. I suggest that people try adding a few symbols/crests (but don't go crazy adding everything just yet.)

To add something:
Quick way: Log in to the site and go here.

Normal way: Log in to the site and then click the "My Content" link under your user name.
From there you can view everything you have added to the site already.
At the top of that page there is a drop-down menu, select Heraldry and click the "Add new item" button.

Next step is to build reports for viewing these things. A basic gallery list is up and running at /heraldry.

Pie In The Face fundraiser for Harvest War

I announced this a few weeks ago at the park, but I wanted to remind everyone that we are doing a pie-in-the-face fundraiser for the next couple of months. The rules are simple:

1) Bid on people you would like to see pied at Harvest War. One penny is equal to one point on the head of your choice. For instance, if I really want to see Glenalth pied at Harvest War, I could spend five dollars to put 500 points on Glenalth.
2) The week before the event, I will total up all of what has been bid, and announce who has the most points. The top several people point-wise will be pied at Harvest War.
3) At the event, we auction off one pie per person to be pied. To follow my earlier example, if Glenalth has the most points, and I decide I really want to shove the pie in his face, I can bid my money at the event to buy that one pie. Then Glenalth, who is very honorable, will stand there and take that pie to the face. The process is similar to a formal auction; each person to be pied will be announced in reverse-order of most points, and when I call the person's name, you bid on their pie.
