REOPENING of the Sanctum

We’d like to let everyone know our plan moving forward to reopen and have a safe place for everyone to come out and play and support us again so we can get back to providing an outlet for the community. 

Starting Monday November 2nd we will be opening again for Monday night play with a limited capacity of 20 people. To do this fairly we have created a form that will go live every Sunday morning at 10 AM. You will signup though the form and reserve your spot for that Monday. There will be a PayPal link in the form to prepay once you have registered. Once 20 spots have been reserved the form will shutdown for the week. That site will be posted on our pages next week so everyone can have it bookmarked. 

Monday night the doors will be open from 7PM-Midnight. Only those who have reserved a spot will be allowed in. Please don’t just show up expecting to come in without a reservation as we don’t want to have to turn people away. To cover our operating costs moving forward after paying our rent out of pocket for the last 8 months we will have to ask for a $20 donation for the night instead of our usual $10 unfortunately due to the limited capacity and extra costs on our end. We won’t be offering refunds for reserved spots that aren’t used. Please don’t take a spot that can be used by someone if you don’t plan on attending that week. 

The rules for entering The Sanctum will be that masks must be worn at all times. No food or drink will be allowed at this time and we ask all players to socially distance. Please do not play a game adjacent to one that is already being played.  Temperature checks will be done before entering.  We will be providing plenty of hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes as needed. We will also be disinfecting every week between Monday’s. We just ask that everyone be kind and respectful during this as we have always known our community to be on a weekly basis. 

We appreciate the support from the community. We understand not everyone is comfortable coming back out yet and hopefully we will be able to see everyone again the way we use to in the not so distant future. For those of you who aren’t comfortable coming back out but want to help support us, along with all of you who have been asking during this how you could help I’ll finally put this link up if you truly want to make a donation. https://www.paypal.me/tothesanctum

We thank everyone for their support and we will see you soon.
