JRH3 General On Sec & Hash Cash Guidance
Special Emphasis Items
1. Count the $50 bank you are given up front to make sure it is all there and speak up if it is not. After everyone has paid, count all the money you collected and then subtract the $50 bank. Then compare the additional amount to what you wrote down on the roster to see if the amounts are the same. If not, try to figure out where the error is before handing over hash cash to the GM and then advise accordingly. Check your pockets, the area where you were collecting cash at and all around the ground as you might have dropped some it if you are short. If you were over, no problem, yea!
2. No IOUs! If they don’t have cash, advise them to either borrow it from someone, or find a nearby ATM. We’re not a bank and its really hard to keep track of who owes what. There has been a tendency in the past for people to show up with no money and want credit and then not pay it off the next time they show up. Its too difficult to keep track of and it just causes problems later. At least 2 people went over over $20 in IOUs in the past and then disputed the accuracy of their debt and haven’t been back since or rarely show up anymore because of it. So trying to be nice and letting people slide just works against the hash and has the reverse of effect of what you might think. We don’t want to loose people over stuff like that anymore, so its better to just not accept IOUs in the first place. Get the word out, NO IOUs!
5. On Secs should bookmark the RA/On Sec Schedule and periodically view it to see when/if to see what dates are open and need filling, or if they are on the schedule pending their approval. Then they should communicate with the GM about getting on the schedule and or approving the schedule if their name appears on it. The GM will normally contact you to get you scheduled, but being pro-active would be most helpful. To view the RA/OnSec Schedule, go to the JRH3 website at www.jollyrogerh3.com and then scroll down to the "RA/OnSec Scheule" and click on it. The direct link to the schedule is http://www.jollyrogerh3.com/RA%20&%20On%20Sec%20Schedule.htm. All OnSecs should bookmark this link for easy access.
