Hi, everybody! Guess what time it is! It’s the beginning of the Nano planning season!
Holy cow, you say, it’s hardly August. You’re working on Nano already? Camp’s barely over. Well, that’s just how devoted leadership is to making Nano awesome for all of us. So, without further ado, here’s your 2018 Nanowrimotown Leadership, woooooo!
MLs Owen, Raine and Eric are all back, with a gazillion years of Nano between them, ready to work WAY too hard at being super awesome. (We don’t deserve you guys.)
Minions Beth, Erika, Conor, Alexis and Michelle have returned. Now introducing brand new minion, Laura! Laura is splendid and talented and we are lucky to have her.
So! What’s going on? Well, a lot of everything that is still in the very early stages, but there are a few bits and bobs to share.
Last year’s fundraising went very well, and we used the money to stock up on all kinds of supplies, like extension cords, button supplies, raffle tickets, and stickers for miles! We are discussing several different kinds of fundraising for this year, all aimed towards maximizing our ability to put on a great event while still respecting everyone’s pockets. So far, we’re looking at a change drive, several raffles, a return of the T Shirt, and…wait for it…Nanowrimotown Bake Sale! More on that to come.
We’re going to have a jam-packed schedule of events this year, including, but not limited to:
Game Night: a return of last year’s pre-nano event.
Kickoff WEEK: Starting with Game Night and ending with Kickoff, we have some extra fun in the works for your last week of sanity.
Kickoff: Lots of activities, including the third annual Kickoff Cookoff. Will you try to earn the Golden Spoon?
Midway: Everybody’s favorite all day writing potluck extravaganza.
Boot Camp: We had such a great time last year, we’re doing it again, bigger, better, and MORE WORD WARS!
One Last Push: Again, we don’t deserve Eric.
TGIO: Aaaaaand breathe.
Inter-regional Word War: We’re challenging Seattle to a rematch! We’re back, bigger, stronger, and wordier than ever before! Will they accept our challenge? Only time will tell…
InTRA-regional Word War: …wut? What’s that, you say? Welllll….you’re just going to have to wait for that, won’t you?
This year is going to be the Year of Swag! You love your swag, and we love designing it for you.** We have punchcards, we have badge ribbons, we have TWENTY NEW BUTTON DESIGNS! We are going to swag the heck outta you.
**Erika has unilaterally declared herself head of the Art Department. Nobody tried to stop her.
That’s it for now. Stay tuned to hear more as we keep working to pull it all together into another great Nano year.
