Everyone is invited to play and is already part of a team. The color of your name tag will tell you which team you’re on. There are 16 name tag colors. If you aren’t quite sure where you belong, it’s easy to find out. Just head over to the Winter Games Welcome Center and use the handy name tag sign. When you click the sign’s action tag, it will tell you what color your name tag is and also give you a link to join your team! This is a great way to meet people and make new friends.
Do you have a Club in There that you would like to recruit more members to? Get help promoting your Club at the Club Fair happening at the There Fairgrounds January 13th-20th.
Head over to the There Fairgrounds and pick out a booth (Lot) for your Club. There are several sizes to choose from. Once you find one that will work, join the There Fairgrounds Development Club in order to rent a booth. Once you have rented the booth, you can decorate it to promote your Club.
Don’t forget to leave a sign or brochure in the booth so that interested people can locate a link to your Club. Schedule and hold events from your booth during the Club Fair to attract more members.
We’ll see you at the Club Fair in the virtual world There!
