Peace, fellow members and SlamMasters.
As a follow up to the SlamMaster meeting that we all attended on Friday morning, I wanted to open up a thread to field questions that we can include in the new SlamMaster Packet I'm putting together.
So far, Tom Sanchez Prunier, Kirk Hardesty and Charles Ellik have signed on to help out with constructing something outside of the NPS rulebook to help orient SlamMasters.
What we need from you is questions. If you are a new slammaster (ie. just opened your slam this past season before attending NPS) or are a slammaster seeking answers to questions, please feel free to add them here, send me a private message message (use the IM bubble in this post under my profile pic) or shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and we'll do our best to add it to the new SM guide.
I don't know how long this project is going to take or if it will even be approved by the body (SMs, PSI, EC...whoever...) or if it even needs approval to put out, but I want to start the ball rolling on getting ideas out as to what questions to ask.
Even if you think it's a dumb question, ask it. You'd be surprised how many other SlamMasters may have the same question (or already have had to ask the same question).
Also, older SlamMasters: if you can think of questions you wish you had known the answer to when you first started out, put them down to.
We need to start practicing what we preach and pull the next person up with us instead of making them feel small for not knowing.
Let's do it ya'll...for real.
