2014 WBC Orphans—Preliminary Event List
March 10, 2014

WBC 2014 is NOW OPEN to new events.

WBC is preparing events for the 2014 season. The list below is temporary and only identifies events eligible for inclusion in either the Century or Trial membership ballot based on 2013 performance and 2014 membership vote. Additional Trial events by qualified sponsors and vendors will be considered for addition to the schedule prior to March 15. Note that the times below are requested times and are subject to change and as such are only rough estimates of the form the final schedule will take.

Century Events

Century: 109 events compose the combined Century & Legacy Group of featured events which are supported by multiple prize levels ranging from two to six plaques and a Centurion shirt based on a formula using the most recent statistics of attendance and player hours. Those 109 slots were pre-determined by 2013 performance and Board vote under the Legacy rules (see BPA FAQs) and require only the commitment of a BPA member to GM the event by the March 15 deadline. Failure of a member GM to submit a suitable event form for the event by the deadline will drop it from eligibility.

All events require a BPA member acting as GM to submit a satisfactory Event Form no later than March 15. Prospective GMs should review the GM Guidelines. All requested event times are approximate and subject to change when the final schedule is released.

Events are not held for their prior GM but are awarded based on merit determined by past performance, timeliness of event submission and format. Events without a GM commitment at this time are OPEN to any current member who submits an acceptable event form.

To make a GM Commitment, become a current BPA member of Sustaining level or higher and submit a completed Event Form before March 15. Century events will be run within two hours of the requested time slot or the GM will be consulted for an acceptable alternate time.

 

Trial Events

Eligible Continuing Trials: New events or those which failed to make the Century Group by 2013 attendance/GM obligation standards. These events were added to the Membership ballot during the annual December membership drive and were voted into Trial status by members casting their votes before 2014. The 25 with the most votes by Jan. 1 are eligible to be run at WBC 2014. Any vacancies in these 25 due to lack of a GM commitment will be filled by BPA based on other Alternate GM commitments on hand by March 15.

Although we will try to honor requested timeslots, all GMs of Continuing Trials must be willing to run their events when scheduled by BPA. Failure to do so may disqualify the event.

Events are not held for their prior GM but are awarded based on merit determined by past performance, timeliness of event submission and format. All events require a BPA member acting as GM to submit a satisfactory event form no later than March 15. Prospective GMs should review the GM Guidelines. All requested event times are approximate and subject to change when the official schedule is released. Although we will try to honor requested timeslots, all GMs of Continuing Trials must be willing to run their events when scheduled by BPA. Failure to do so may disqualify the event.

Alternate Trials: Those events that failed in the December Membership Drive vote but were submitted with a completed event form by willing GMs for inclusion on the ballot for consideration of the membership. Alternate events are used as replacements for any qualifying Century or Continuing Trial event which fails to draw a satisfactory GM commitment. Such events are also occasionally selected by sponsors to become eligible. New proposals must be submitted to cd@boardgamers.org no later than Nov. 24 of each year to be included on that year's membership ballot, although any received by March 15 will be given consideration as replacements for events without a GM commitment. New events may be either events making their first appearance at WBC or returning after an absence.
