Action regarding passes for NPS
« on: July 29, 2010, 09:49:30 AM »
All,

Here is what the EC has investigated, discussed, argued, motioned and voted on in the last week or so since this issue came up:

We determined that the EC had, at one of our meetings during last year's NPS, agreed to limit passes for teams to 5.
Problem?  We didn't publicize that decision and we certainly had bigger fish to fry at the time. 

We have since rectified that by doing the following:

1) Motion to limit teams to 5 passes for NPS was approved. 
2) Motion to start that limit next year, not this year (meaning teams this year get UP TO 6 passes just like the old system and with the old considerations) also passes.  This is the "my bad" motion.

So up to 6 this year, down to a flat 5 next year.

We understand that it's not just a team that brings a team to Nationals, that many people typicaly have a lot ot do with that for any given scene.  We also hope that teams understand that nothing about these events are free, even access.  Seats cost money.  Passes cost money.  bags and shirts and access costs money.  The fairest, most reasonable middle ground for ALL factors that are involved with access is five passes.

Thank you all for your attention to the matter!

Very cool.  Thank you Scott, and the rest of the EC, for smoothing this out.

Thank YOU all for having your eyes in many places, and for bringing it to our attention.  We really don't try to make these things difficult.
