|The kiosk hallway funnels hotel
guests on their walk to the convention center -
reassuring them they are reaching the WBC gaming nirvana.
Century: These events compose the combined Century & Legacy Group of featured events that 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. Slots were pre-determined by
2022 performance and Board vote under the Legacy rules (see BPA FAQs) and required only the commitment of a BPA member to GM the event between December 5, 2022 and January 31. 2023.
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 January 31, 2023. Prospective GMs should review the GM Guidelines.
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.

Introductory (New) Trials:Each vendor and/or Sponsor may add one new Trial event above and beyond the 30 Trial events voted in by the membership anytime prior to February 28, 2023. Such New Trials will automatically fall into Century or Continuing Trial classifications the following year based on their 2023 performance. These events must be for games which are in print by the February 28, 2023 deadline and for which BPA has received an Event Form from a willing GM. Publisher must submit a copy of the game at the time of the event submission.
|Events Sponsored by Vendors/Sponsors
Alternate Events are those which failed in the December/January Membership Drive vote. Alternate events for which a satisfactory event form has been submitted may be used as replacements for any qualifying Century or Trial event without a GM commitment by the January 31, 2022 deadline. Alternate events are occasionally upgraded by Sponsors.

Juniors Events: Volunteer GMs are always needed to run free events for children aged 12 & under in the WBC Juniors room. Any game held at WBC is eligible provided it is suitable for children of that age group and available in sufficient numbers to allow all children present to play. You cannot assume children will bring their own copies of the game. The GM should come prepared to instruct children how to play the game. A BPA Room Monitor is always present to help maintain order but is not always available to assist children in playing the game. Recruitment of assistants to aid you is strongly advised. Volunteer Assistants are very much needed. To volunteer, contact Ken Gutermuth at firstname.lastname@example.org or Megan Byrd at email@example.com.
