GMG ANNUAL MEETING
The fourth annual GMG meeting will take place on April 7, 2018 beginning at 8:30am in the Card Room. Anyone who attended the Mega Meltdown in 2017 is a current member of Green Mountain Gamers and can vote at and attend the annual meeting. There will be a brief discussion about the previous year followed by voting for officers.
Current GMG officers are: Robert Dijkman Dulkes, President; Kori Joyce, Vice President; Bethany Creaser, Treasurer; Chuck Burkins, Assistant Treasurer; and Monique Priestley, Secretary.
Bethany Creaser is stepping down as treasurer so, a position will be vacant. If you are interested in being part of the GMG board, please let us know and be sure to attend the annual meeting this year.
We will offer door prizes to those who attend. Those who pre-reg, will be entered into a special pre-reg door prize drawings.
We are working on gathering donations and will post door prize donations as they come in.
PLAY TO WIN
For the past few years, the Mega Meltdown has offered a variety of Play to Win games and we will also have it again this year.
What is Play to Win? It’s easy! We will have a special table of games where the games on that table will be part of the Play to Win. All you have to do to win any of the games is play them. Yup. That easy. After you play the game, write your name and contact info on a piece of paper and deposit your entry into the receptacle assigned to the game you played. Play the game once. Enter your name once. Play the game twice, enter your name again. Each time you play, enter your name. You do not need to be present to win. We will draw the Play to Win winners at 7pm. We ask that you please do not start any new Play to Win games after 6pm.
We are working on gathering donations and will post Play to Win donations as they come in.
GAMES TO PLAY
Open play is the name of the game at Green Mountain Game Days and ALL tabletop games are welcome! A huge pile of games materialize as people arrive. Then everyone gets to either push their favorite or try something that sounds interesting as it hits the table.
We have Players and GM wanted signs to help you find others to play with you.
