Hello GameStorm Fans,
We know everyone’s been waiting for updates. This year has been full of hurry-up-and-wait moments and other issues that kept us from having all the details we would normally share with you. However, we finally have some information available to share.
Unfortunately, after discussions with the Hotel, we have agreed to once again cancel GameStorm for March of 2021. We know that many of you were looking forward to this event (as were we) but t does not look like the pandemic will be well-controlled enough to allow for any event of the size we would need to run.As it stands right now, our next official event will be GameStorm 22.1A (name improvement incoming) in March of 2022. We are using this downtime to make improvements to our systems as well as other planning adjustments. We look forward to sharing more details as we move forward.There will be many questions – and we may not have answers for them all immediately.
Here is what we currently know:1) Any hotel room that was reserved in the GameStorm hotel block should already be canceled. We would recommend following up with the hotel to ensure yours has been removed just in case.2) A decision regarding rolling money forward vs refunding has not been made yet and will not be until after the Holidays. Please hold off on communication with our registration team or treasury until we have had a chance to make a call on this. Once we have, we will set up as easy of a process as we can for whichever option or combination we come up to.3) As of this moment, we are not considering a digital GameStorm. The amount of overhead and time to redirect people to other platforms that most gamers are already familiar with does not currently make sense.
We are still evaluating options however and want to work with our community.We are currently looking at ways of increasing our presence and interaction with the community and would love your input! What would you like to see from GameStorm during the downtime? More videoss? Reviews? Mini web-panels? Challenge our Staff to online game sessions? Let us know by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Less if we don’t.We all appreciate your patience and understanding. GameStorm is a passion and we want to continue to bring you the best gaming in the Northwest as safely as possible.
-Jason-Chair, GameStorm 22 (now in 2022)
