WBC Juniors Room 2007

WBC attempts to always have one event running between 9 AM and 9 PM exclusively for kids 12 and under. Such events are free to children accompanied by a BPA member in attendance at the conference, but require registration of the child in the Juniors room by completing parental consent and emergency contact forms. While parents need not be present to play, parental attendance is encouraged to lend a hand. However, parents should refrain from playing the game for their children.

How young is too young?  Children should be at least old enough to read at a minimum. Parents are reminded that this is not a day care service and their children should be well behaved and respectful of others if they are to attend unsupervised. WBC and its GMs assume no responsibility for keeping track of your child's whereabouts before, during or after the event, although we do monitor their presence while in the room. There is no substitute for parental supervision.

Note that although all Juniors events are Class C—Coached—and are explained, it is best if the children have some advance familiarity with the games in question. Remember that bringing a copy of the game is often a good idea to ensure enough copies to allow everyone to play. This is even more important for the Juniors events because so many of the kids do not have games and our GMs often cannot provide enough copies for everyone.

No food or beverage is allowed in the Juniors room. This prevents spillage and parental concerns over diet and the consumption of junk food. Parents are urged to schedule regular meal breaks for their children where what they eat is properly supervised.

Any boardgame of suitable complexity level and length is eligible for use in the juniors events and GM volunteers are always needed—either to head an event or to act as assistants to teach and monitor a table full of youngsters. If you're looking for a way to "give something back" to the hobby, look no further. Volunteer to be a Juniors GM or assistant. Contact the Juniors Coordinator.

 All Juniors events were held in Heritage.
