Event Series Event Series: GM Class (Learn to be a Helper or GM)

CANCELED due to Rain! 2/17/24 Rescheduled or Online Class – GM Class (Learn to be a Helper or GM)

February 17 @ 5:30 pm 7:30 pm

Hello All Palo Alto Parents and Players,

Unfortunately another atmospheric river event is forecast for this weekend and it comes in tomorrow morning. We were debating trying to make the event still happen with my tents and sheltering under the eves at the park, but the forecast is sticking to 20mph winds and heavy rain most of the day, and so we decided we have to skip it this time. It looks like we should be good to go for next Wednesday however, so I will see you all then!


“Saturday – Showers. High near 60. South southeast wind 9 to 14 mph increasing to 16 to 21 mph in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 28 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible.”

All my best,
Christopher Melville

The GM Class is for players twelve and up only, who are ready to take the next step from being just players in the game to being Helpers and/or Game Masters. The class meets once a month and covers a lot of classroom management skills, practice with difficult children, game design concepts, historical information, game balance issues, world building, and much more. Player sign up for one year, and must commit to volunteering for at least one Summer Camp where they will practice their skills. At the end of this class, players must turn in a portfolio of each assignment that was due each month and write an essay on what they have learned, how they have changed, and what they still need to do to grow. See Christopher for more information. This class is being held in Palo Alto this year, right after the Character League at Mitchell Park on the third Saturday of the month.
