Today we’re going to talk to Nicolas Gaudreault. Nicolas is the founder of the GoHabsGo League and organizes biannual gatherings for members of his League to get know one another better. He’s here to offer some insight into his experiences hosting gatherings and what you can do if you want your League to host one.
About three and a half years ago now.
We’re having these roughly twice a year now. I think it’s important to have good relationships with your fellow players.
35 players took part initially. This year we’ve averaged about 40 to 45 players, all of them French speakers, from Quebec. We have another League Member likely coming to our next gathering who is French.
No, not so long … it takes me about a day or so, and I give our League Members at least one month advance notice.
I really like the flag. The others like it too.
They happen every January and August.
To be well organized and find a space big enough to welcome everybody. Of course, a fire is pretty cool, music too … but don’t forget to have something ready in case it rains and you need to go indoors.
Organizing our first gathering was pretty stressful. You’re just not sure what’s going to happen or what kind of people your fellow players are in real life. But then you all get together and everything’s cool. Everyone’s having fun like they’re kids again. There’s no doubt that the connections between our League Members are now stronger. That’s why we do this twice a year. And each time more and more players show up. Who doesn’t love a party?
Thanksת Nicolas! Good luck to you and your League in all future endeavors!
