Featuring Death Application
The 'Leadership' of the club sat down and discussed the health and direction of the team.
We created the official Current roster (this may surprise some people...)
We developed a process by which to admit new members.
We came up with some criteria that we are looking for.
All this was done to ensure that Featuring Death maintains the vision that it was originally created for. This club is something that many of us have put a lot of time and effort into and we do not want to lose this.
That being said, If you are interested in being apart of this club please read below and follow the steps laid out. They are not extreme but they are necessary. So please keep and open mind and understand that this process is fluid and potentially subject to change.
1) Read and understand Featuring Death's Guiding Principles as well as the Player's Code of Conduct.
Our short list of guiding principles is:
1. have fun
2. suck less than we used to
3. be good ambassadors for the sport
4. don't scare off the new players
5. keep costs down
6. promote pump, low rate of fire and old-school play
7. get everyone visiting the M.CB's forum!
Players Code of Conduct
Applicants should fit the following:
Little to no Drama
Respectful to all players (on and off the field)
Sense of humour
Able to take a joke/laugh at him/her self
Trigger control/ability to play with limited ROF
Sense of fun
Played 10 days along side FD (For FD to get a feel for the applicant and the applicant to get a feel for FD ethos and its members.)
MCB membership and active on the forum
Willing to buy an FD jersey (Sort of like a membership fee, The money will weed out those who are less committed…but the applicant will also get a nice jersey of their own.)
Will the applicant help promote FD and its ethos
Will FD members be happy to wear the same jersey as the applicant
3) Please Copy/paste and answer the following questions in this thread*
*The google form failed, couldn't view it anywhere and was difficult to share...
-Why do you want to join Featuring Death?
-Have you read and do you accept FD's guiding principles found on MCB?
-Are you currently affiliated with any other recball team?
-Are you willing to buy a Featuring Death jersey?
This really is important. We do need people to actually ASK us if they can join instead of just assume they are part of the club because they play on the same field...
In order to protect Featuring Death, we need to be able to control the membership roster.
4) Things to remember.
Application does not guarantee admission!
A negative response does not mean you cannot apply again in the future. The club can change its mind if the members feel that a previously excluded applicant has succeeded in meeting the criteria.
Well I hope this is all as clear as mud, if you have questions please ask.
*CJOttawa or MAr, Can this get stickied?
So, we buy a jersey then we are on the team? What happens if we don't get a jersey?
The jersey is an important part of being part of the club for a couple of reasons.
1) uniformity. Looking like a team is an important part of being a team!
2) paying for a jersey gets you a sweet jersey!
3) most importantly a person who is willing to put that small investment in shows commitment to the team.
Of course we are not expecting anyone to instantly buy a jersey. However I do think it is necessary to get one within a reasonable amount of time.
The next questions arise, how to get a jersey, and the cost affiliated, and the possibility of a group buy for a discount in the next month or 2
To get a jersey, talk to CJOttawa. He holds the design.
I think it came out to about $120ish when I bought one by myself...$45 in shipping...
So, if you get a group buy in then you will save there. The first one I bought in the original group buy came to total of $90ish...
As for a possibility of a group buy, its a good idea. Lets see who needs one and is ready to buy.
So who reviews and approves the applications to join?
Is it a majority vote or a unanimous vote?
At the rate I am going I should fit the criteria in about 4 more years.
The process is not set in stone and I would like to get as wide an assent as is possible as long as it remains manageable and decisions can still be made.
