a brief note about the convention timeline

There are approximately 16 to 19 weeks between each HMGS convention - In order to give GMs 6 weeks for event submission as well as allow 6 weeks for advance online attendee registration, Event submissions must begin just before Fall In!  We lose more than a week due to all the holidays between Fall In! and Cold Wars (I am not asking volunteers to work over Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years). The remaining time is broken up and allocated to operational processes - assigning tables and event numbers, importing events for online reg, creating the PEL, entering the GM & volunteer badges, printing tickets, badges, the program book, etc. There is a tiny bit of flex (ie extra time) since we are all volunteer run and occasionally day jobs, sick kids and life get in the way. This is to provide adequate time for everyone to prepare for the show.

We must have events in the system prior to opening Advance registration for attendee so that everyone may select games prior to the show.
