2276Revised Gate Sign In Policy
- Jan 9 11:28 AMUnto the Populace of the West does the Kingdom Constable send his
This past six months we have tried a new sign in policy at gate; one
where members only had to show their cards and hand the Constable money
and just enter the event without having to sign a form. After review of
this policy by myself and the Exchequers of the Kingdom it has been
decided that this system does not give us the capability to properly
balance the books for the event. Without that capability, and the
ability to double check figures, it makes the required quarterly reports
and Doomsday reports much more difficult to make balance.
From a Constabulary end of things, it makes documenting individuals who
skip by gate virtually impossible as well as individuals signing their
member number when their memberships have expired. Records are kept of
these things, especially when we have repeat offenders.
With this being said, and a long discussion being had at the Exchequer
meeting at 12th night, I must announce that we are going back to the
previous Sign-In Procedure. Everyone will sign the same form as before.
Members of the society can ignore the waiver portion of the form as it
does not apply to you. The reason that we will not have separate forms
for members and non-members is because it becomes a paperwork nightmare
at gate. Carrying multiple clipboards or having two different forms on
the same clipboard will not work. Making sure that everyone signs the
correct form and puts down the correct information is difficult as it
is; having two forms will make it impossible.
Ways that you can help the Constabulary with Sign in and make things run
- Have your membership card or the number memorized. Write
the number down on the directions you printed to get to the event is a
good way to have it handy in the car.
- Write down the "amount paid" on the sign in form. This helps
us balance the moneybox with the sheets after the event.
- Print out and complete minor waiver forms prior to coming to
the event. (if you need a link to the forms, please feel free to e-mail
- Exact change. Or have checks made out in advanced. The cost
for the event is in the page, on the website and in most announcements.
Remember that non-members pay an additional 5 dollar non-member
surcharge unless they are using the WKWC. Minors who are charged a
reduced rate do not pay a NMS. The Family Rate is 40 dollars; however
the NMS still does apply for non-members.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. For more
information on the Constabulary or becoming a constable, also contact me
or join the West Kingdom Constabulary Yahoo group. Just search for
WKConstabulary and you will find it.
