Thank you very much to everyone who applied for your generous offerings of your time and sanity for our clubs' benefit! The Executive Board had a difficult time deciding between candidates, and we're honoured by each one. Especially the ones we hope to see apply next year!

Keep in mind, there are still plenty of ways to earn CRPs that do not involve being in an Officer or Executive position! Just to name a few: casting, pre-logging, giving rides to people, taking home garbage, making mana, and donating items (especially ones on the Props donation lists).

If your name is on the above list, you will be receiving an email in the near future which details your compensation package(s).

Thank you again to all applicants! Let the season's preparations begin!

Hello everyone!

I'm proud to announce the 2016 Summer season event dates!

There are currently no plans for a March event, but for those eager to get back to Carreg Wynn we've got an earlier start in April!

There are additional notes below, for the curious!

Mark your Calendars!

April 8-10 - Blue Springs Scout Camp
May 20-22 - Woodland trails Camp
June 17-19 - Blue Springs Scout Camp
July 22-24 - Blue Springs Scout Camp
August 19-21 - Blue Springs Scout Camp
September 16-18 - Blue Springs Scout Camp
October 21-23 - Blue Springs Scout Camp

Due to a big Scouts Campboree in may, We'll be having an outdoor event at the woodland trails scout camp! We've booked the same Big pine hall some of you remembered from the past november event, plus the Elmview lodge down the lane!

I've currently only booked for a 3 day event, letting everyone enjoy Victoria day. If you would like to see the traditional 4 day event, let there be a public outcry soon and I will make arrangements!

To accommodate our larpers with children and to ease the choice of which spoopy LARP to attend, I bumped October up a week so that halloween is free for you to party, take your kids trick or treating, OR enjoy another Larp!

Hi, friends!

Our new season is rapidly approaching consider this your "ready, set, go~" for writing your Artistic Direction proposals/applications for 2016!

The tentative deadline is February 10th, 2016.

Please send all proposals/applications for Artistic Director in .doc format to president@epoch-larp.ca

Some items of interest are:
- Statement(s) of who is on your team; this includes ADs, Marshals, Perma-Cast, Part-Time Cast, and other faces who will be on your roster.
- Goals/Ambitions overall - be it IG (like introducing new monsters/villains, or bringing back old ones, etc) or OOG (addressing aspects of the OOG/meta culture of Epoch), or all of the above!
- General (or specific) Overviews of Events in terms of the Story/Plotline/Arc.
- List of possible purchases/expenditures (ie: props, monster phys reps, notable NPC costume pieces/weapons, etc)
- Your favourite kind of candy

I greatly appreciate organization, but understand that it's not everyone's strength!

If you feel that you have a story that you want to tell, but you're not sure that it would span for an entire season, perhaps consider sending in an Event Director, or ED, application. Event Directors can work with, or parallel to Artistic Directors (who are in charge of the season of plot as a whole). EDing is a lot like ADing, and the application process is similar, so feel free to use the same list of items above for some pointers. An ED proposal is usually smaller in scope, and can be for a single event, or a couple of events - either together, or spread apart.

Keep in mind that ED events are also an excellent means of foreshadowing Winter events (or entire seasons). If you have an idea in mind but are not able to run a full season at this point in time, an ED event is the perfect way to set the stage! EDs are chosen by the Artistic Director, but this is a great opportunity to get those creative juices flowing, and to let the ideas steep during the off-season.

If you have any questions/concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me via PM on the forums.

Looking forward to reading what you have planned.
