Officer's Meeting March 2009

Gulf War

Post Gulf War Meeting to be held at 6:30 pm on Saturday, March 28, at Caerell and Aingeal's before Bardic.

Gulf War Land

Next year the War will open a day earlier, on Saturday. Anyone who is early on will be considered Gulf War set up crew. You must help set up the site before doing your own campsites. This applies to everyone, from the top down. 
Early on is limited to 3 cars containing 5 people total. Under 18 does not count in those numbers. One of the 5 must be the group's primary land coordinator. Land coordinator is a 3-5 year commitment. If you are land coordinator, you must commit to attending war for the years you are coordinator. Deadline for early on is Jan 1, 2010. Substitutions are not allowed.

Due to War attendance growth, square foot allotments per person will be enforced. If you do not use all your space, it will be allotted to the common area.

Under consideration is: groups that volunteer get some slack. If volunteerism at the War does not improve, groups with permanent land will be required to volunteer for a certain number of hours.

The reason behind these changes is to ensure War enjoyment of all attendees, improve customer service, and reduce the amount of red tape groups must go through to receive information.

Golf carts will be limited to the Chirurgeons and the Watch. Everyone else will be on foot.

If you would like a copy of the Gulf War changes, please contact Caerell.
