Charity
Donations will be shared by NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) and NAMI Utah and used to provide education and support to people affected by mental illness and their families, including young adults. Both organizations raise public awareness about mental illness to reduce stigma and advocate for access to and coverage of mental health care.  They provide information and resources to people around the world who visit nami.org and their social media site.
 
NAMI has been a great partner for RPGLB thus far in ways such as providing meals for attendees and promoting the stream, so we’ve decided to partner with them again for RPGLB 2018.  Charity selection is something we will always re-evaluate on an annual basis, based on community & viewer feedback.

Venue
After considering multiple venues and attendee feedback from previous events, we've decided to return to the University Guest House in Salt Lake City for at least one more year.  The main factors in this decision were our previous experiences there and the Guest House offering us a great price for the space, which allows us to offer a reduced attendance fee as we did last event.

RPGLB 2018 will again be using the Officers Club (http://www.universityguesthouse.com/Officers-Club) just down the street from the main Guest House hotel building (2-3 min walk).  As the most heavily used space during RPGLB 2017 was the practice/casual room, to alleviate crowding and accommodate more attendees, the East Conference Room (which was used for food/board games during RPGLB 2017) will be used for additional TVs/gameplay space, and we will use a conference room in the main hotel building (one of the rooms used for RPGLB 2016 and post-RPGLB 2017 storage) for food/board games.

The attendee cap for RPGLB 2018 will be 200 - we have an initial block of ~45 hotel rooms per night, which can be increased if needed.

Hotel Reservation/Attendance Fee Payment Info
Will be added once event registration opens next February.  Attendance fee is planned to be $30 USD for the full event.

Hotel rooms at the Guest House will be $115 total/night for 1 or 2 people, $125 total/night for 3 people, or $135 total/night for 4 people (plus local taxes).

Game Submissions/Schedule
Game submissions will be open January 20-28, 2018, and the game list is planned to be posted on or around February 11, 2018, with the full schedule by the end of February.  We have decided to do submissions later than previous events to give runners extra time to prepare their submissions, and allow for a smoother game selection/scheduling process (which in the past was challenging due to games committee members’ holiday/AGDQ plans).

The format for game submissions (SDA Forum, Google Form, web submission form, etc) has not been finalized yet, but the standards for game selection will be the same as previous events (see the 1st post of https://forum.speeddemosarchive.com/post/rpg_limit_break_2017__game_submission_thread_vods_posted.html for reference).
