GAME CHEF: CALL FOR A NEW COORDINATOR

The short version: it's time to pass on the mantle of Game Chef. I'd like to serve as a mentor & guide this year, allowing you to more easily step into the role of being Game Chef's global coordinator. It's scary but not too scary. You can do it!

Stepping Down

Hey! I coordinated Game Chef last year and the year before. A short, sweet run. I need to recalibrate where I'm putting my energy, and transition away from doing games community stuff. It's time to pass on the mantle.

The Coordinator Role

I'm looking for someone to replace me as the global coordinator and also English-language coordinator. I'll serve as a mentor for the first year. It'll probably require 60-100 hours of your time and 10-20 of mine.

The global coordinator is responsible for determining the year's theme+ingredients, writing copy, liaising with the coordinators of the other language communities involved (last year, Game Chef ran in 7 languages simultaneously), doing simple web admin stuff, some graphic design, handling a small number of interpersonal problems per year, doing some diy promotions, doing community moderation, designing feedback processes, and collating/sending peer review feedback.  There are a lot of tasks involved but you're allowed to bumble your way through them haphazardly!

Delegating out or sharing a lot of those tasks is probably possible. I'm bad at delegating, which is a factor in my needing to transition out of this role.

How To Apply

Reply here or email me at mcdaldno(at)gmail. Let me know if you're interested in taking on the coordinator role, splitting the role with someone else, or volunteering in some other way.

Thanks, y'all! Sharing this post is welcome. Tagging people in is welcome.

This petition has over half a million supporters. Please consider adding your voice to theirs.
Each of these 49,000 men deserves the justice and acknowledgment from the British government that this intolerant law brought not only unwarranted shame, but horrific physical and mental damage and lost years of wrongful imprisonment to these men. Alan Turing was pardoned in 2013, but the other estimated 49,000 men deserve the same.

Yesterday I made sauerkraut for the first time.  I can't believe I have to wait a MONTH to eat it.

This might backfire - I've never even tried it before and it turns out that one cabbage makes a LOT of sauerkraut.

Sauerkraut's pretty good. And I don't even really like pickled things.

Daffodils are coming up and Crocuses are about to bloom here in Derbyshire.  That means it is almost time to re-wire the pig fence and start shifting manure onto the veg patch.  Hurray.

But first something even more fun - the planning of the veg patch.

This year I plan to do A LOT more peas - they were wonderful and we had nowhere near enough.  Also all our Squashes failed, which is crap - I really rely on Squash as it keeps so well.  So I'm all over fixing the Squash problem.

Our soil is too clay rich for root veg other than potatoes which is really sad.  It need a least 4 more years of manure and compost before it is good enough to do parsnips, mooli, carrots and probably beetroot.  But I'll try a row of beetroot and small radish just in case to see how it is going.  For Carrots I'm going to grow a few in cut off lengths of drainpipe in the top garden.

My big promise to myself is no more tomatoes until we get a poly tunnel.  It just isn't worth it this far North - the growing season is too short and we don't get enough reliable sunlight.    Every year I break my heart on heirloom tomatoes.  This year I'm putting my energy into something more productive.

Finally slugs - last year was the worst I've ever known for slugs.  I lost 4 or more entire salad sowings.  This year I'm hoping the cold snap in Jan has decimated their numbers but just in case it didn't I need a salad back up plan.  I want to be completely self-sufficient in salad for more of July, Aug and Sept.  I'm hoping that small intercroppings of chives, garlic chives and Chinese chives will help.

But I'm still reading The Earth Care Manual which is the absolutely authority on permaculture in the British climate so everything is subject to change.  I'm about 4 chapters in and I've learned more in the one chapter on soil than in over 10 years of growing veg and making compost!  It is amazing!

+Anna Roberts Thanks, I think about it.  I'm sorely tempted.  But then I'm always tempted by tomatoes and I'd only worked out well once and that was down south in a green house.

We've both had a really tough week this week - and then the internet got unreliable.  No Voyager to top it off...

But the upside is that we are forced to raid our DVD collection - and are getting re-acquainted with Northern Exposure.  I can't tell you how much I love that show :)

Just discovered a puddle of milk in my yoga mat.  Then i realised my yoga shorts were wet... with milk.

Thanks Raffi - this seems like fair payback for the interesting homemade hair cut you had yesterday. Touche.

It is so annoying when you read a cool google doc and you can't just +1 it.
