Twill be the night before Christmas and all through your home
You and yours may be solving, because of this poem
Puzzles will be posted? Who can partake?
Everyone! It's the holidays for goodness sake!
Oh the fun to be had - how many will there be?
Four, if you must know, a meta and three
These lines do rhyme, but do they also advise?
Of course they do, friend, they hold the key to the prize.
You say there'll be puzzles - but how do we play?
Simply solve this and wait - they'll be on the way.
Other puzzles to come? When will they be released?
Noon, PT on Christmas Eve - that's 3pm in the east.
I may be a bit busy - how long can I wait?
Start right away or after you've cleaned your last plate!
Logging when you start and when you finish each one
Allows you to wait until you have time for some fun.
Now is there someone to thank for these puzzles you bring?
Definitely thank Elevate Tutoring
With money and training, Elevate helps indeed
Investing in the futures of students in need!
They train students to be tutors who practice their new path
Helping underprivileged others in science and math
Right on! I'm in. So, what is the price?
Up to you and your family - can you afford to be nice?
Donations to Elevate would be ever so kind
Our tutors work hard and this helps train their mind
Lo and behold, we are done - I assure you we're through
Please forgive that last rhyme and solve the pre-clue

According to "How to Host a BANG", it's better to take payment before the game than, say, at the first puzzle site. For the recent Hill Hunt BANG, we took cash on game day and it seemed easy-peasy. Now I wonder: What horrible problems did we blithely dodge in our ignorance?

- Dana Young helping with the planning/scouting phases
- About 3-4 other core GC, none of whom have run a DASH
Seattle doesn't have:
- Enough staffers for puzzle sites yet
- Anyone helping out on event day who has actually run a DASH
We would love to have Larry! But there might be other cities more in need than we are.
The reason I switched back to Classic Compose from the generally-nicer New Compose was the, uhm whaddyacallem, name-chips in the To: field. They showed me names instead of addresses. I know so many Chris Chens. And people with multiple email addresses who get snarky if you use the wrong one. So Many. Please don't make me hover my mouse over a name chip to make sure that I'm about to mail the right address. Pleeeeease?
Playing around with the name chips and compose a bit more, I found for some contacts I get the full email address, others just have "(gmail)", and still others don't change at all....so I'm guessing gmail is trying to be extra smart with what it shows you.
