A Look Into The Future

Hello Wizards!

I hope you're having a wonderful week. Today I wanted to talk a little bit about something that I wasn't so sure of a few weeks ago - the future of the events. Many of you have asked me if we were going to have a Halloween Run this year, and I regret to tell you that will not have one this year. We are, however, going to have something else later this year!

That's right! There will be a Santa Run this year. Something special about this year is that it's going to be our 5th Annual Santa Run. That means we've had a Santa Run for five Decembers in a row! It's so cool that these have gone on for so long. It is tough to have them, especially when people go. But one thing I need to keep in mind is that most of you that attend our events today have never attended. So you, like many others in the past, will get to experience community togetherness!

Nearly seven years ago, I thought it would be cool to host some sort of Santa Run in the commons. So I made a blog post, tweeted it out, and when the time came, several friends in the community showed up. We had fun only running around the commons. There were no pre-activities, no afterparty, no stream. It was just a moment for friends to hang out. I have a few key events like that, that truly are my favorites. I hope we reach many new friends that feel the same way about the community in our upcoming events. I'm going to consider this as a relaunch/reboot of the events. Especially since I'd like to change things up for next year's events. 

Nothing will ever be perfect, but I am hoping to do bring positivity to the community next year through various projects that I'll be working on. On top of that, we'll also host events (some new, some classic). But as we host new events, I ask all of you to spread the word about our events when we announce the dates! It would be fun to get the word out to like-minded peeps in the community. And if you've been with us since the beginning - thank you so much for your support. I know there are a few of you that have been with us for years. You have no idea how much that means to us that you still support our efforts. Anyway, I think that's all I have for today. I have a busy day, so I should really get started on some stuff in real life. Thank you for reading and I hope to see you at our 5th Annual Santa Run in December. More information about this event will be announced in late next month or early December! Until next time, I'll see you around the spiral.
