WBC SCHEDULE ON LINE: The 2005 version of the WBC schedule is now on line in glorious detail as only WBC does it. Start with the full color All-in-one schedule graphic at http://www.boardgamers.org/wbc/allin1.htm or download it all in pdf. Then move on to the Personal Scheduler to plot your week's schedule at http://www.boardgamers.org/wbc/sviewer/index.htm. And for more detailed information on the events of your choice, check out each event's individual Preview page at http://www.boardgamers.org/yearbook/index.htm AUCTION 05: The sequel to last year's very successful auction debut at WBC is now accepting pre-registration of lots. This year's auction will be expanded in both space and time but will again be limiting the number of lots accepted so as to finish prior to the start of official WBC gaming events. A heavy turnout is expected and Pre-Registration of lots is highly recommended. See the details at http://www.boardgamers.org/wbc/auction.htm ANNUAL MAILING: BPA's annual WBC mailing is scheduled to occur on June 1st. This year's program/Yearbook will be mailed to all current members residing in the U.S. on that date (one per household). All others will receive theirs at check-in. Pre-registration forms will also be mailed then to all on our mailing list. If your mailing address has changed since you last contacted us, please advise us immediately at doncon99 [at] toad.net. Mail lost due to an incorrect address will not be remailed. WBC REGISTRATION: Are you registered to attend our inaugural bash in our enlarged new site in Lancaster? Need a roommate? A carpool to/from the airport? Solve all three with a quick visit to our Pre-Reg page at http://www.boardgamers.org/wbc/prereg.htm RISK BONUS: This year's RISK tournament at WBC will feature an added bonus. The winner will receive free admission and lodging at the 17th Annual Risk Championships in Stroudsburg, PA on Oct 14th-16th with a chance to vie for a $500 cash prize.

Tom Oleson, Steve Likevch, and Chris Harris. Follow the action at http://www.bpaclassics.org/AnzioHomeSep02.htm ============================== All BPA PBeM tournaments require current BPA membership when the event starts. All multi-day paid attendees to WBC are current BPA members for the balance of that calendar year. Associate Calendar year memberships enabling play in all PBeM events starting in that year cost only $10 and earn discounts for admission to all BPA gaming conferences. You need not keep your membership current in order to finish a PBeM event. Players may join the BPA throughout the year. Members are reminded they can upgrade their current memberships at any time by remitting the additional funds. See http://www.boardgamers.org/bpaterms.htm for details. BPA members who would like to see an email tournament for their favorite game are encouraged to step forward as the GM of such an event. BPA does not run tournaments. Rather, we are an organization of gamers lending support to one another so such events can happen. No one cares as much about your hobby as you do. Get involved.
