Title: Official 2020 GB Calendar
Post by: GTX_Admin on January 25, 2020, 04:24:31 AM
Official Group Builds for 2020:


Plus...

2020 Year long quick build (no more than 48 hours) GB as well - propose this be run concurrently with above, over an extended period throughout the year.  This allows people to enter anything they do that satisfies the criteria throughout the year. Moderator:  taiidantomcat

Now,as to Moderators, I welcome volunteers.  If these don't come forward, I will 'volunteer' some. ;)

I really like this idea, I've wanted to do a 48 hour build forever but I have no idea when my schedule will allow it. The flexibility of having it open for the year gives me some real hope  :D

I have some ideas percolating in my wayward mind about working in a Trashcanistan project among the different group builds. The firefighting GB could actually happen. Must search the junk drawers some more.

I might jump on that. Its relatively hands off since its so long term. Just have to get the area set up, and the relatively unique nature of the GB time duration, build duration, explained in the rules.

Official Group Builds for 2020:

  • Scaleorama GB:  1 Dec - 29 Feb 2021  Moderator:  ??
Er, shouldn't that be 28 Feb 2021 or 01 mar 2021?  Not to be a JMN about it, but 2020 is the leap year, not 2021.

That's what you think but I declared a new day to the year.  There will also be a new month between June and July to allow me to catch up on all the work I need.... ;) ;D

Done - I will ensure framework is there.

Folks,

Given the recent death of one of our founders and hobby stalwarts, Brian Perri (see here (http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=9223.0)), we have decided to replace the "Civil Transport GB" from 1 Jun - 31 Aug" with a memorial build for Brian.  There will be no vote but rather it would be simply one to celebrate Brian's contribution to the hobby.  Please stand by for more information to follow.

Given the delay in starting the Invasion of Japan/Japan 46 GB I have decided to simply slide all the remaining GBs (this included) by 1mth.  I am still looking for a GB Moderator for this one too - don't make me volunteer someone. C:-)

The month slide puts me in a better position to moderate the Japan '46 GB.  If no one else offers up, I'll take a crack at it.

I can do it. I promise I'll do everything I can to make it better than Japan GB  :-[

Thanks mate.  Don't worry about the other - you only set the place space.  It's up to others to play (including myself).

Well this is embarrassing.  We're one week in to February and we haven't started the Scaleorama GB.  Don't even have a moderator yet.

Any volunteers?
