Here are the bios for your candidates, so that you know who you are voting for:
Isaac Frank: Hello, My name is Isaac Frank, and I'm a freshman in Computer Information Technology. I’ve been with BLT staff as long as I have been at Purdue and I hope to help the
club in any way I can during my time here. Over the past few years of my life I have collectively spent around four years working as an Administrator or Sr. Staff member for several
online communities and clubs in school. During the time I've spent as staff with those organizations, I've helped plan and execute multiple events that are very similar to the events
the Boiler League of Tag host, including Humans vs. Zombies at my high school. One of the online communities I've staffed for was an gaming community. I was responsible for
coordinating multiple events across multiple servers. I often had to organize the activities in the events, determine how many staff members are needed, and dispatch the staff members
to the necessary locations. I have plenty of experience, and I want to help BLT as much as possible. I would love to be able to help this community grow, and I look forward to seeing
you all at future events.
Alan Han: Hi, my name is Alan Han and I'm a sophomore in Electrical and Computer Engineering. This semester, I was on the offseason committee that's responsible for running the
weekend capture the flag and HvZ practice games. I’ve also been helping offseason to plan our upcoming invitational. I've consistently volunteered as a mod and NPC for both offseason
and HvZ gameweek, and I'd love to help BLT even more as a club officer.
Charles Li: Hello, I'm Charles Li. I do things. One common thing among the things that I do is making things that do stuff. When doing these types of things, I like to make
electricity do things that make other stuff do things. Another thing I do, but do not do as much, is read about stuff that has been done. I hope the thing you do is selecting me to
make things that you can all have fun doing later.
In all seriousness, my name is Charles Li and I am a sophomore in Electrical Engineering. I really enjoy working on projects and organizing events. One of the most fun events I’ve
been able to help organize was this semester’s Humans vs. Zombies week! I’ve been an HvZ player for a year and this semester was my first time on staff. This semester I helped run
offseason events such as capture the flag and was an NPC/moderator for HvZ week. If you didn’t gather from earlier, I am running to be an officer for BLT. I believe I have the tools
and dedication to help make the most fun events possible. I’m Charles Li, vote for me to do the thing!
Brad Cearing: Hello everyone! My name is Bradley Cearing and I am a senior in CGT. I have been with BLT for a little more than 3 years now. I’ve held multiple different offices in my
time as a staff member. My positions have included being the Head of PR for 1 semester, a member of PR committee for 2 semesters, and 1 semester as an HvZ committee member. I have
also moderated the game for 3 years. I have been with the club for a long time now and I have learned a great deal from it. I would like to support this club with all of my ability
and I feel that makes me qualified to be an officer.
Good luck to all our candidates!

Our game week for Fall 2015 has concluded. 20 humans managed to extract. The names of those extracted were:
Our top scoring zombies for the week were:
1. Jeremy Kelnhofer with 13 kills
2. Samuel Anglin with 11 kills
3. Jacob Frank with 8 kills
4. Keith Ridge with 6 kills
5. Christian Buckley with 6 kills
Congratulations to those who survived the week as humans and to the zombies who rose to the top of the leaderboard. For those who did not, just remember that the game is not
completely about making it to the end as human or getting the most kills, but rather getting out and having fun every night for a week. No matter which side you were on, which night
you got tagged, or how many Humans you tagged, you won the game as long as you had fun while you were playing. We strongly believe that our game is about the fun journey to the end of
game week and not necessarily about the finish line. Thanks for playing and have a great rest of the semester! We look forward to seeing you all in the Spring!
EDIT: we were later informed that 4 feedcodes of people who extracted were not properly filed. Those names have been added to the list and the final total is 20, not 16 players who

Each semester, a small handful of humans who prove themselves with feats of skill or sheer badassness are selected to be on the “bounty list” these humans are high value targets that
the zombies will be rewarded for managing to tag. Each human on the bounty list will receive an achievement pin, which they can pick up from the Comm table at any point throughout the
week. Zombies who manage to tag anyone on the bounty list will also receive an achievement pin if they show the feedcode of the bounty to someone at the Comm Table. Without further
delay, here is the Fall 2015 bounty list:
-Alexis Garoufalis, aka “Shadow”; Alexis is a relatively new player, but has proven herself a capable leader and master of stealth. Assuming you manage to find her,
prepare for a fight. She was one of the last humans killed at extraction last semester and has proven herself a very worthy opponent.
-Jonathan Fortner, aka “Renaissance Man”; Jon has played HvZ for quite a long time and has become a very well rounded player. As a history major, he draws on all he’s
learned to constantly come up with new and unique battle tactics. A strong human and a terrifying zombie, this is someone you want on your side.
-Jacob Stouder, aka “Old Man”; Stouder has been around Humans vs. Zombies a very long time and has only improved with time. Stouder can usually be found leading large
groups, teaching new players tactics, or going around on his own escorting or saving any humans he can. He may begin lots of stories with “Back in my day…” but his stories contain the
wisdom of a player who has survived many games. Stouder is graduating this semester, so he is picking up his guns for the last time. Zombies, you will need to work hard to ensure he
doesn’t finish his time here as a human.
-Caitlyn Bennett, aka “Arsenal”; Caitlyn is a very versatile player that boasts a large armory of nerf weapons and the skills to use all of them. She can usually be
found in large groups teaching new players how to defend themselves against the zombie horde. Though she may be soft spoken, don’t be fooled, she will fight like a devil. Bring large
numbers if you want to have a chance at taking down this tough human.
-John Ohmberger, aka “The Legend”; John Ohmberger has been around Humans vs. Zombies almost as long as it has been around. He currently holds a record for extracting
more times than any other player still at Purdue. He has extracted the last two HvZ games in a row, one of which he was the sole survivor and the other he extracted as a bounty. Some
say John is simply unkillable, though I can assure you he is still able to be tagged. Though no one has figured out how to tag him, yet… John is a legend and any zombie capable of
tagging him will be as well.
Good luck to those on the bounty list and happy hunting to the zombies wishing to claim their feedcodes.
