HWI Draft Camp/Challenge

Postby BetsieT » May 28th, 2014, 8:59 am

So with Hawaii's big five draft picks, General Manager Wilmer Grehr has decided to start planning an event for hopefully draftees to come and enjoy the brand new E Komo Mai "Punchbowl" Arena and show off their stuff to the team notorious for digging deep for draft picks. The week will involve drills, scrimmages, and an organized set of games will be played to conclude the week and allow for players to show how they play as a team. Chances will be had to play and practice with Kahunas team members. Might be more events squeezed in there on the side, but this just just my general idea. Would anybody be interested? Open to all players. This is NOT an invitational, but I WILL need to know who is coming so I can work up the teams for the organized games.

This would be a great opportunity for those that don't have a spot in the Top 24 to have a spotlight shone on them.

Depending on the setup in comparison to other draft challenges, Kevin would LOVE to attend.

I will be trying to make the set-up RP friendly (both forum and Twitter), and am looking for a way to work-up game stats. If you have any suggestions on how I can improve it, just say so! It's still in planning!

Any idea thus far on when the event's going to happen?

Would love for Adi to attend, but he'd be very very hard pressed managing his remaining Off and Leave times from SE Asia... Plus the player is extremely stuck to a drawing canvas x.x

Wishing everyone else the best of luck

It will happen after the playoffs sometime. Will have a better idea in the coming week or so, also a better idea of what will be happening at the event. Currently planning for it to run for 7-9 days.

Mikaylah is definitely interested (and I think Aida would suggest she go for it!) Just gotta make sure it doesn't overlap any of the other team events (TEX and LVG).

But yes, she will definitely do this! Even if it's outside (though she's hoping it's not. XD)

Many of the big events will be taking place at the E Komo Mai "Punchbowl" Arena, which is an indoor/outdoor arena (retractable roof), so some events may occur in the sunshine.

When it's closer to time, I will be releasing an entry form. One will have to be filled out for each CHARACTER entering. So if you have two characters entering, you'll have to fill out two separate forms. This is so I know who is entering, what positions they play, etc. There will also be a GM interview/questionnaire that can be filled out (it will be optional). This is an event to showcase those that the FBA did not select for the Top 24, but those in the Top 24 are still welcome to be there and participate in the events etc.

And as I said, I really want to strive for this to be very RP friendly as well, so if you have any suggestions to help that along, please say so.

DATE HAS BEEN SET! Show Your Colours Draft Camp is slotted to start on June 30.

If you want your player to attend but cannot RP it via Twitter or anything else, that is fine. Still fill out a form (which I will be making available this weekend) so that they can be involved in the games and scrimmages.

I submitted one for Adam. I mean, come on now, it won't make sense for Adam NOT to try and show up there. XD

I remember filling this out for my characters, but I forget if I did it for all of my draftees or not >_<

So just checking to see if you got entries from Durby, Norath, Namcaki, Kikian, and Goulten

I had sent in a submission form for my draft candidate LaShawn Grandon. Didn't you receive it?

I believe I did actually! But my response file goofed on me! I'll double check it, but consider him in the camp!
