Orphan List  [Updated Feb 22, 2004]

This is the final update. WBC closes to new events on March 1st. The next update will be the official 2004 schedule.

The games listed below (the Century Group and Trial Events) will be played at the 2004 WBC provided a GameMaster volunteers for each.

If you are a BPA member for 2004, you can GM any game listed below as "OPEN" by being the first to submit a satisfactory event form by the end of February 2004. Why not be a GM this year?

An event not claimed by that date will not be run, in which case it will be dropped from the group and be replaced by the highest ranking alternate in the annual membership vote which has a GM commitment.

This page will be updated weekly between January 1st when reservations expire and March 1st when event submissions are no longer accepted. Events listed as Cancelled are no longer eligible due to lack of a GM commitment by the deadline.

Continuing Trials are limited to the first 25 events for which an acceptable Event form is submitted by a participating GM or the end of February, whichever comes first. New Trials may be introduced by vendors and sponsors at the rate of one per booth space/sponsorship until the end of February.

Century: 100 events compose the Century 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 recent statistics of attendance, player hours, and scheduling incentives. 90 of those 100 slots were pre-determined and require only the commitment of a BPA member to GM the event by the end of February deadline. Failure of a GM to submit a suitable event form for the event by the deadline will drop it from the group to be replaced by the highest ranking alternate in the annual membership vote. Ten additional Century events composed of either new games or readmitted Trials will be added at the end of Membership voting on January 1st, 2004.

Ten Century Group slots will be awarded to events drawing the most votes in the annual membership survey during the December Membership Drive. Regardless of vote, the ten winners also require a GM commitment by the end of February deadline, or they too will be replaced by the next highest ranking event with a GM commitment.

Continuing Trials are limited to the first 25 events for which an acceptable Event form is submitted by a participating GM or the end of February, whichever comes first.

New Trials may be introduced by vendors and sponsors at the rate of one per booth space/sponsorship until the end of February.

All events require a BPA member acting as GM to submit a satisfactory Event Form no later than February 29th, 2004 or the event will not be run. Events are reserved for the previous GM who satisfactorily completed all obligations until January 1st, 2004. After that date, any event not already taken may be run by any BPA member submitting a satisfactory event form by the end of February. This page will be updated weekly between January 1st when reservations expire and March 1st when event submissions are no longer accepted. All requested event times are approximate and subject to change when the final schedule is made.

Changes to the originally posted requested times have been listed in red.

Alternates: These events are listed in the order of the vote support they received in the annual Membership Drive survey completed in December and include a combination of new events and Continuing Tirals. Should any Century event not receive a volunteer GM by the Feb 28th deadline, an event on this list will ascend to the Century group in the following order. New events will be run only if admitted to the Century by this process or sponsored as a New Trial by a vendor or Sponsor. Continuing Trials on this list may continue to be run as such provided their Event form is among the first 25 approved.

NEW TRIALS: Each vendor and/or Sponsor may add one new Trial event to the below list of "grandfathered" Continuing Trials above and beyond the 25 Continuing Trials ceiling. Such New Trials will automatically fall into one of the other classifications the following year based on their 2004 performance.

  Continuing Trials are those events which failed to make the Century Group by 2003 attendance standards but which did draw a minimum of eight participants in the preceding WBC. Unlike former years, Continuing Trials are limited to the first 25 events for which a satisfactory event format is submitted and approved.

Barring entrance by other means (sponsorship or a Century vacancy which elevates one of the 25), there are currently no remaining slots for Continuing Trials. This means all remaining OPEN events in this category will be deleted from eligibility. Any GM who would like to save one of these events from extinction is urged to submit an event form in case a vacancy does occur.
