GSC Meeting Minutes – Aug 8th, 2014

Fandemonium was a great success!
Costume Contest Review:
Pros:
-Fans loved the 3 categories
-Contestants don’t have to wear their costume in front if the judges (I love this)
-Contest show was executed well

Suggested Improvements:
-have GSC member manning sign ups to answer questions
-make a pamphlet with comics explaining the contest rules.
-have PR video for rules at opening ceremonies
-have prereg for cons time contest available online before con.
-change categories rules from % to hours. We make if very clear that research, shopping, drafting, construction hours are included in this.

Cons:
-2 days for judging
-no exhibition awards
-Judges Form need a place to make a note if the judges dropped a contestant in class.
-Able to have 1 entry in class and a second one in exhibition
-have more copies of the rules for the contest EVERYWHERE!

Tangl is liaison with James (the Tomodachi Fest Chairman) about getting some kind if discount for GSC people to work the repair room so staff won’t have to. He is bringing it up with the board.
