How Charter/Land Grant effects volunteer hours and DogPounds earned?
If you have a land grant: In the game if you have a land grant, with that comes 6 hours of required volunteering from someone(s) in your group PER Land Grant. These are separate hours from charter hours. These hours are paid hours, in DogPounds.
If you Charter and have a Land Grant: The group will be resposible for 6 hours of volunteer time + individual members will have 4 hours of volunteer time each.

Will Sea Dog Nation Inc Change its name?
We see the need for change in the Nation. We see that you, the people feel misrepresented and want to be heard and acknowledged. We agree that changes need to be made and we want to make them with you. We strive to be a catalyst that brings together beautiful dreamers in fascinating garb. We are linked together by community and common interest.
We feel that the first step to move in the direction of mending this Nation is to rename our Non-Profit Organization. We do not own Seadog Nights and that event is not the only event we want to offer you. Our current name causes confusion and distrust. Our allegiance must be to the populace of our Nation and no single entity or event. We are here to protect all of you and, in best faith, attempt to do what is best for the whole of the Nation.
We come to you, the people of this Nation, for a name. We can think of no one else qualified. You can submit ideas via PM or via our email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Best way and times to contact?
As for times, we are people just like you, we have families and jobs and cannot answer every day all day long. Normal business hours 9 to 6 would be the best times to get ahold of us.
What happened to the idea of "Replacement Events"?
SDNation Inc. & Sarcastabitches LLC.
How are conflicts of interest between board members and LLC members going to be mediated?
Does the arrangement have a multi-year contract?
Sarcastabitches LLC owns the IP outright. Dennis no longer has any connections to the IP or profits from the events.
The Agreement between SB and SDNI is for this year 2018. After this year there will be an assessment if the events are worth continuing or if starting the new year fresh with different events would be best.
Management of the events for 2018
SDNation Inc leased the events from them. SDNation Inc is in managerial control of the events.

What are Sarcastabitches LLC plans for their payment via SeaDog Nation Inc?
What is the status of the investigation into allegations of sexual assault?
As we get more information from either party, so will you.
Will Dennis profit from the events?
No, Dennis Rensik will not be profiting from these events. All financial ties have been cut.
Sarcastabitches LLC paid Dennis directly from their pockets for the IP of SeaDog Nights & Gypsy Carnival and Tortuga Pirate Festival. He will not receive funds from the events themselves.
Some people feel this does still benefit Dennis in a roundabout fashion. This is a valid opinion and anyone with this opinion should not be treated poorly for it.
Why the split with Dennis Rensink?
Will Dennis be attending the events?
Dennis will not be in attendance.
