Retroactively looking at all of them is not happening.We do not post the event list until it has been vetted and ready. Confusion and chaos would ensue if we did that as changes that need to be made on so many fronts are required to be vetted.
The fact that many EO's have already submitted their Events and not inquired about asking to mask at the tables is telling.
If we are on par or more events have been submitted, then it would show that the policy is not a concern of EO.
And Mike has already said there's 0 tolerance; so if the GM is being rude about it then you still get money back and they're probably banned from running events for a while. Seems GenCon is just trying to trust people to not be jerks to each other.
It's a very simple flow. If event says masks requested then you skip it or plan a mask. If an event didn't say that, you attend, and a GM asks for masks (super unlikely based on events so far) then you either put on a mask and play happily or say no. If you say no and can't play happily, you get a refund and leave the event. If you say no and they make a big deal of it, you get GC staff involved and the GM is probably gone and you still get a refund.
I'll reiterate that Gen Con does not believe this will be a big issue in practice.

I think the essential points have been made.
Mike, thank you for answering my question.
Locking this topic.
