Gate Listing Requirements
In its current incarnation, the Northern California Danse Macabre tries to be as "all inclusive" as possible. We openly welcome those members of other guilds, acts, booths and even customers participating at a faire to "drop in" and join us for any parade that we're going to do. Such people are always welcome to join us as their schedules permit, with no obligation on them at all.
It is always possible for someone to list with us for a given faire or other event that we're scheduled to perform in. We welcome people to request gate listing with us at a given event. Some faires have "caps" (limits) on how many people a given guild can have on their gatelist. As such, it's important for you to know that if you ask to be placed on our list, you are making a promise to appear at that faire or other event and to perform in our shows/parades, in exchange for being on our list. If you are placed on our gate list, you are potentially locking someone out who also wants to perform with us. So please be sure that if you request listing and are placed on it, that you show up for the event and show up for the shows. If you become aware that you're not going to be able to make an event after being added to our gate list, please be sure to contact us as soon as possible, so that we might be able to let someone else in if it's not too late (past the cutoff date) for the event in question.
As noted above, we try to be as all-inclusive as possible. Unfortunately, the reality of the caps that some faires place on gate list size means that certain Faires have some additional requirements that we have to impose in order to qualify to be placed on our list for those events. This is not something that we do lightly, nor particularly want to do; rather, we do it out of necessity. Your understanding and cooperation on this matter is appreciated.
Faire/Event-specific gate listing requirements are listed below, along with the name of the faire/event.
No event-specific special requirements currently.
If you have any questions regarding the criteria for any faire or other event, please contact the Guildmaster and ask for a clarification. If you're unsure of something, please ask rather than making an assumption!
