The final spurt

Dear participants and followers

It’s the 3rd of September, and there is a month until the Giant Fanatic event.  This means, for us a organizers, that the final spurt has started. The Giant Fanatic event is an event with many expectations from many different people in the tabletop gaming community. We are working to meet them all, but we are constantly challenged by the needs and amount of organizational infrastructure.  We are not new to the role as organizers, we just need to learn to cooperate our differences into a very cultural framed project as the Giant Fanatic event is. But heed no worries, because the tournament is getting closer, it will be a awesome experience and we are just as existed as you are.

Q & A’s

The Q&A system integrated in the Giant Fanatic homepage is up and running. All of the tournament affiliate organizers should have access to directly answer all of the participants questions. As all Q&As, it will work best if, you as a participant, checks the previously asked questions before you post your own. All Q&As will close the 29th of September at 18.00 hours.

Tickets

Your tickets are, as I write, just returned from the press. They will be (snail)mailed during the upcoming week. If you haven’t received your ticket at the 20th of September, you are welcome to contact Miguel through the Giant Fanatic homepage.

The ticket system has been a real challenge. This is our first event at this scale, and the need of an automated digital system is very serious issue. The pressure from the participants on this part of the event had caught us off guard. This year, the system was part automated, and hence the bottleneck in our processing. No worries, all orders will be processed, it just takes time. Next year we will be better prepared.

Warhammer Fantasy extra events

As the Danish tradition dictates, we are now opening up for grudging and the team tournament. Since we are not able to (due to lack of wordpress programming skills) implement these kinds of systems on our homepage yet, we are using the Danish community’s online forum for grudging matches and for signing up teams for the teamtournament. You will find the online forum here: www.powerfist.dk

The toilet situation

Everyone that has previously attended to a Giant Fanatic event knows how long the queue to the toilets has been. The venue simply doesn’t have the toilet facilities at the primetime for several hundred soda filled gamers. We have there fore rented a festival urinal which will be set outside next to the venue.

Economic surplus

Our budget expects a little surplus. We do not, at this point, know exactly how big. The overall surplus on the budget will be added to evolving the tournament further, but it is our intention to use some of the surplus to establish a fund for the tabletop community. The fund will primarily support national teams participating in the international competitive environment. It’s our hope, that this gesture will ignite several more initiatives to support our national teams. More on this after the Giant Fanatic event.

Contacting us

If you have any  questions or concerns regarding this project, you are welcome to contact us through our homepage. It is important you direct all communications though the right channels, and not to our affiliates.

Volunteers

This event is entirely arranged by volunteers. It’s an awesome team, and a great way to “give” something back to the community. During this weekend, we are in need of voluntary muscle force and therefore calling all interested to the banners. If you want to help, do not hesitate to write a mail to Miguel. There will be a meeting for all volunteers the 29th of September at 19.00 hours in Skovlunde.

The adress is; Rollespilsforeningen Dragonfactory, Gl. Skovlundevej 1, 2740 Skovlunde

Affiliate meeting

Many of the events is organized by affiliates. We are convening to a affiliate meeting the 30th of September at 18.00 Hours at the Fanatic store on Østerbro. You will be convened on you mail as well. Well met.
