Hey All,

So Julian still has a bunch of boffer building materials left over from last year's boffer day in his house, and he'd like to get rid of them.

I'd like to hear from players and Plot Members on whether or not you'd like to do another one. I'd love to know whether the Plot Team needs more weapons, and if so, what they need. If you guys don't need more weapons, giving you guys the leftover material to store until you do need it would at least get the stuff out of Julian's place.

What do you guys think? Is anyone willing to host the event? The materials are in Barrie, as is our storage, so hosting it there would be ideal.

For those who are navigating from the Facebook group, please post your replies here so those who don't have Facebook can see them too.

I'm hijacking this idea: sitting in my basement is a huge pile of boffers waiting for repair. I've been meaning to get them to Julian anyway BUT this would be the perfect opportunity to repair the ones we already have!

... It's a really big pile.

*cries*

Could we do two separate days for this? I'm concerned that the new boffers would be left unfinished in favour of repairs. Part of the reason for doing this is getting the stuff out of Julian's house, which he's been storing for the better part of a year.

Though if we use the materials we bought for the new boffers to repair the old ones?

Stef said what I was thinking!

That could be done. As long as the stuff is no longer in Julian's place by the end of it, that's all that matters to me :).

I think all that is needed now is to pick a date and location to bring all the pieces together.

Boffer Bee:
Who: Anyone available and interested in participating.
What: Create, repair and maintain Plot's boffer collection and gain tips from team experts.
When: ?????
Where: ?????
Why: why not?

Personally, I'm more of a fabric artist than Duck Tape aficionado.

You'd still be welcome to hang out, Peggy!

If repairs are needed, then sooner is better, though I'd like to suggest holding off until May to allow students the time to finish their final assignments and exams.

Otherwise, I'm not picky on when it is. I definitely feel Barrie is a good general area because that's where the materials and storage are. It's all dependent on who's willing to host, however. If anyone would like to volunteer their place for it, you would be loved forever! While I have no power to offer extra Grab Bags for hosting, I know that bonus Grab Bags have been offered for hosting duties in the past.

If we have a good enough turnout, we can also do both creating and repairing of boffers!

Maybe April 10? This seems like a Sunday afternoon sort of job.

While I am willing to host up to 5 people repairing/crafting boffers, but I have no idea how you guys will bring all that stuff to Down town Toronto.

Another option is: I am willing to take the stuff off people's hands and repair/create boffers for the first weekend event if we can't choose a date. But once again: how to get it to Toronto.

Thing is, I want to ensure that the students among us have the opportunity to help. I don't think April would be a good month for most of them.
