RPG Tour status Update September 6th 2018

Here is the latest RPG Tour plan status update as of 11:20 am September 6th, 2018.

Greetings everyone!

The RPG Tour is a fundraiser for the non-profit RPG Research and to raise awareness about role-playing games, accessibility & inclusiveness considerations for gamers, and the potential for music and RPGs to help people from various populations to achieve their educational, recreational, & therapeutic goals.

The RPG Tour planning is still underway. We had some mechanical issues with the RPG Trailer and the RPG Bus that we are still getting fixed, especially the Air Conditioning issues with the bus.

Updates on the bus itself can be found on the RPG Bus Website, and updates on the RPG Trailer Website for the trailer, for those interested in the nitty gritty details of the various restoration, repairs, and enhancements.

The RPG Tour plans to visit between 8 to 13 states in the western USA depending upon (personal) finances, vehicle performance, and interest from people requesting visits/interviews.

We are planning to begin the tour (leaving Spokane, WA), somewhere around September 19th, 20th, or 21st. The exact date will be nailed down more firmly as we coordinate visits with people along the tour route.

We will travel across Washington state, Oregon, & California, and we plan to be in San Diego, CA no later than September 24th, and remain there for at least 2-3 weekdays.

Then, depending on interest from people, we hope to at least visit Tucson & Phoenix, AZ, before beginning the return trip through Nevada, Utah, Idaho, & Montana.  Alternate additional states may include Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming. This will depend heavily on demand, finances, and vehicle reliability.

The tour should return back to Spokane, WA anywhere between October 6th to 13th.

Involved with role-playing games since the late 1970s, researching the effects of all RPG formats since 1983, implementing RPG programs in educational settings since 1985, and in therapeutic settings since 2004. He is a Washington State Department of Health Registered Recreational Therapist with a background in computer science, education, neuroscience, research psychology, music & therapeutic recreation.

Hawke Robinson is funding the costs of this trip out of his own pocket, all donations are to go to the 501(c)3 non-profit RPG Research, and/or funding building of the ideal Wheelchair Friendly RPG Trailer GoFundMe.com/RpgTrailer (donors specify).

This is a great chance to meet Hawke Robinson in person, check out the bus and trailer, and potentially participate in music and game sessions too!

01:24 PM Update:

Unfortunately I can't get the word out to the people on Facebook that requested updates on the tour. Facebook has flagged all such posts as spam, and is blocking my FB account posting in groups until September 10th. :-(
My Appeal reply: "Only posting _on topic_ _community appropriate_ updates to relevant groups, especially those interested in the topics of accessibility and inclusiveness, especially special needs populations, etc. Please don't deny these special needs populations the right to receive such important information to help them."

Others will need to help spread the word there.
