ELECTION: A reminder that The BPA Annual election for its Board of 
Directors ends tonight at midnight EST on Friday, July 15th. Postal votes 
with a July 15th postmark will be accepted provided they arrive within 
one week. Those wishing to vote by email may do so now by consulting the 
e-ballot at http://www.boardgamers.org/election.htm and e-mailing your 
votes to doncon99 [at] toad.net today!

TEAM TOURNAMENT: The Happy Handicapper will soon reveal his early picks 
for the favorites in this year's Team competition. It's free so thumb 
your nose at the odds-maker and enter your team by email to 
doncon99 [at] toad.net by July 23rd or download the pre-reg form in pdf format 
at http://www.boardgamers.org/wbc/prpg1.pdf 

AUCTION: The WBC 2005 Auction is a sellout. No further items will be 
accepted. For early notification of pre-registration for the 2006 WBC 
Auction, join our free mailing list by visiting 
http://lists.boardgamers.org/mailman/listinfo/bpamail to confirm your 
address and your desire to be on this list. Subscribing takes only a 
moment, ensures your privacy, and increases likelihood of receipt. The 
newsletter will continue to be posted in the WBC folder in the 
Conventions section of Consimworld but will otherwise be unavailable to 
those who do not join this list.

T-SHIRTS: Today is the final day to pre-order your souvenir shirts and 
have them waiting for you upon arrival at WBC. Save the shipping charges 
and order today! Those cool, full-color WBC T's with the 2004 Centurions 
and special award winners listed on the back prove you've been to the 
best gaming conference there is! And the games you choose for the front 
announce your gaming preferences. Distinctive Team shirts have never been 
easier. Custom design your own shirt with illustrations of your favorite 
WBC events and pithy text from your own wordsmiths. More game 
illustrations have been added to the original menu. And this year you can 
order them via credit card at 
http://store.yahoo.com/lostbattalion/boplas.html. But hurry ... 
pre-orders must be received by July 15th. Otherwise, you'll have to wait 
to get yours in the mail AFTER WBC.
