Tenatively, I'm saying submission deadline for entrants will be the first day of summer, Friday, June 20th, and judging will last four weeks, landing us on Friday, July 18th. If anyone has a strong reason to not use these days, speak up now.

Origins is June 25-29 this year. That doesn't give us a very big margin for error when it comes to finding out about the entrants, printing the rules, and familiarizing ourselves with the games so that we can playtest them at Origins. Any chance we can move the deadline back a week? Is anybody interested in playtesting at Origins?

If we're using this games to _demo_ Ichouse, that's one thing; but I don't think that's what were about.

Certainly, if people are going to Origins, that'd be a fine place to get together with some less-often-seen friends and try some of the IGDC entrants, but I'm not clear on how having entries in a week earlier makes that better.

I dunno; anyone else got $0.02 to throw in on this?
