WATCH Weekly Report 12-13-17

** WATCH Weekly Report 12-13-17 ** 
To the WATCH Board, Judges, and Alternates:

Well, here we are.  The final report of 2017.  Where has the time gone?  As a reminder, I leave for vacation on Sunday, so I would greatly appreciate it if you would try to have outstanding ballots submitted by then so I can not spend my vacation worrying about this.  But the absolute last date for submission is December 20th, and no ballots will be received after this date.  No exceptions.

WATCH reps, please feel free to reach out to your judges who have seen their assigned show but have not submitted their ballot, and encourage them to submit it right away.  And for those WATCH reps who are missing ballots themselves, please feel free to pester yourselves. ;)

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and I am looking forward to working with you all in the new year.

NOTE:  Balloting for a show closes 30 days after the show closes.  If you owe us a ballot, please get it in as soon as possible.

Friendly Reminders:

1.      DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL.  It’s very long, and the reply will include the entire thing, clogging my inbox.  Please send a new email to
2.      DO email me your reservation dates.  Really, I want to know!
3.      DO search this entire report for your name, including in the “Closed” section to see if you owe any ballots.
4.      If you go see a show that you were not assigned to see, please let me know in case we need an alternate.  Try to keep the playbills for all shows you see at WATCH company theaters, at least until you see that it has closed with all ballots received.  Similarly, if you see a note that an alternate is needed and you are available to see that show, please let me know.
