2016 June Pre game announcements

Postby skish27 » Tue Jun 07, 2016 11:04 pm

Hello Ozians!

We are a few days away from the June event! Here are the pre game announcements. Some things are the same, some things have changed, so please read. If you have any questions, pm me.


Pre Game Announcements

A reminder that we are at Camp Kirby, located 4734 Samish Point Rd, Bow, WA 98232.

I am waiting on confirmation on our 3pm site walk-through with the camp facilities manager, but unless otherwise posted, the Earliest Site Access is 4pm. Please do not arrive any earlier, you will not be allowed on-site until after the site walk-through has been done with the Camp facilities manager.

It is imperative to follow the vehicle safety procedures that are posted on the site. Those rules are to drive no more than 5 miles per hour, and to honk at the top and bottom of the hill, wait and listen for a response before proceeding down/up on the one-car hill.

As requested by the site manager, please do not tag the site on Social Media.
In April, we tested out using the main dining hall for logistics. This was much better than using one of the smaller cabins, and general feedback was positive, so we will be doing it again. You will see signs for logistics at the bottom of the hill. If you have not already filled out a legal release form, or your emergency contact information has changed, please make sure to bring your legal release form, which is available on the facebook documents section. Camp Kirby requires that we have this information on file for all participants.

The official In-game start time is 9pm. Please review the following arrival procedures that will help everyone get in to game promptly at 9pm.

1. Visit logistics if open
2. Set yourself up
3. Assist staff volunteers w/ setup
4. Assist other players w/ setup
5. Game on at 9pm.

If you have medical training such as First Aid/CPR, LPN, RN or physician, please bring a copy of your certificates and let us know ahead of time or at check-in!

Per Camp Kirby’s Main Lodge Kitchen rules, all food prepared in the Main Lodge kitchen must be prepared by persons who hold a current food handler’s permit for specific State of Washington Health Department guidelines. Regulations vary according to the size and duration of the facility rental; please see their website for details. So please bring your food handler’s permit if you wish to prepare any food in the main kitchen, thanks.

This event will have an official Afters meet and greet. Come join us after the game to discuss your adventures, or just to hang out with the other LARPers.

Feedback form
Kristin is creating the June feedback form and will be posting it shortly.

Service Dog
There will be a service dog on site for one of our players. Richard has purchased allergy medication, which will be available initially at logistics and later moved to ST Camp.

Wasps Nests
During the April event, a few wasps nests were spotted on the eves of one of the buildings. We contacted the site manager who took care of it immediately. If you spot one during game, please notify staff immediately.

Announcements from ST

Regarding ST Camp
ST camp (Herman’s Hut) is an in game location. This building is a Scarecrow’s Army Communications Outpost of which Commissar Jay is the commanding officer. Commissar Jay or any of the Communications Specialists under her command can receive messages or forms to be sent elsewhere in the Land of Oz. This means that rather than coming inside to speak the ST’s out of game, you will be relaying your message in game as your character for the purposes of the message reaching the intended recipient. If your character would like to leave town and speak to the recipient of their message directly you can do so by filling at least one NPC role, after which an ST will talk to you about what your character does while they are out of town, who they talk to, and what responses they receive. Only those who are filling NPC roles, waiting to talk to an ST about what their character did while they were out NPCing, or those dealing with an out of game injury or emergency will be permitted inside ST camp.

Drop in NPCing

ST camp is always in need of drop in NPCs to help us represent the world outside of Horizon's Stronghold. There are a variety of roles for drop in NPCs to fill each game, and the ST team will work with you to determine where your character was when they left town! Additionally, Emerald Points are granted for playing NPC roles. Anyone who is interested in NPCing is welcome to stop by at any point throughout the weekend to fill an NPC role. We're looking forward to working with you!

ST Information at Check In

Based upon the feedback provided to us last game, ST will continue to provide information slips to logistics. Logistics will have some tidbits of information for players at check in tied to character guild, race, or other specific character specifications. Don't forget to check with logistics team for your ST info!
