Thank you to the 73 members (roughly 60% of the club) that took part in the GM survey, which has now concluded. Results from the survey are available here:

Shortly, Sidney Parker will be holding a discussion on the GMD board ( about what the results mean and how we can improve the GM process to encourage more people to become GMs accordingly. All members and ideas are welcome.

GM Survey

Are you NOT a GM? Do you have a spare two minutes? If yes to both, please help the Gamemaster Department by filling out our quick (four-question) survey – which is located at: The survey will help us identify problems that might be stopping members becoming GMs so, if applicable, we can change them to ensure everyone who wants to be a GM can become so.

The Gamemaster Department (GMD) would be gratefully if everyone, who wants to take, could submit his or her survey response by no later than 20:00 (GMT) on 6th June 2017.

The GMD needs you!
