Hope everyone is getting as excited for the second year of Cottington Woods as we are! Our first event is only just over 6 weeks away, and we have so much planned!

We wanted to make a few announcements/updates, so please read on!

**EVENT DATES 2014**

It was brought up that we never confirmed our 2014 Event Dates, so in case you missed the announcements:

March 21-23, 2014
May 30-June 1, 2014
July 19, 2014+
September 19-21, 2014
October 24-26, 2014
Winter RP Day TBD+

This does sadly mean we are conflicting with Fables of Fenorra in May, and Shadows of Amun in September, but on the plus side, we've avoided conflicts with all other LARPs our players play!

+The Summer One-Day is not yet confirmed. We are waiting on confirmation from the Campsite.

+We are likely to hold a Winter RP day, but exact date is TBD and may be in early 2015.


**EVENT COSTS FOR 2014**

We had hoped to keep our weekend event costs at $75 per player, but given rising camp costs and that our player numbers seem to average 60 to 70 an event now, instead of 80 to 90 (for example, we are at 53 players preregistered for March), we will need to increase our event fee by $5 per person this year -- from $75 per event to $80. One-Day costs remain the same at present.

Weekend Event Costs: $80 in advance, $90 at the door
One-Day Event Costs: $40 with potluck contribution, $50 at the door

Annual Membership remains $25

Event payment is due 2 weeks prior to the event. Annual membership is due prior to your first event of the year.

If this is an issue for you, please contact us at info@cottingtonwoods.com (or directly to me at thepressedfairy@gmail.com) to discuss.


**PREREGISTRATION FOR MARCH EVENT**

Just a reminder that you will earn 5 Bonus CP just for preregistering and paying by February 21, 2014.

If you are intending on coming to the March event but cannot pay yet, that's fine - please preregister to let us know that you plan on coming, so we can plan accordingly! We would hate to postpone something because we didn't think you would be at the event.


**NPC REFERRAL PROGRAM**

As a further reminder, we have an NPC referral program in place! Refer an NPC to us, and we will give you 5 CP after their first event, 10 CP after their second, and then 5 CP for each even thereafter. There is no limit at present on the number of NPCs you can refer. They need to list you as their referrer when they preregister so that we can credit you appropriately.


**NPC PREREGISTRATION**

Our NPC Preregistration is open now as well! Please preregister to let us know you will be NPCing for Cottington Woods, so that we can cast you in advance for roles.

Preregister here:
http://cottingtonwoods.com/events/npc_pregistration.php

We do welcome last minute/showing-up-at-the-door NPCs and do keep many roles in reserve to cast onsite so that last minute NPCs still have cool things to play. And if you would prefer to just fight all weekend, we have many combat only - as well as RP only, and a mix of both - roles available for those who want to crunch.

We are very open about plotlines and campaign secrets in Monster Camp, however, so please understand that once you NPC for Cottington Woods, you cannot jump over to being a PC.


If there are any questions, please let us know!
