Page creation templates[edit]

The following templates are used to create pages for our regular, bi-monthly Drives and Blitzes. Carefully read the instructions for including variables like the start and end dates, coordinators' names, and themes and targets. Variables and wikilinks in the "Signing up" sections must be manually inserted. These templates must be substituted; type subst: after the first pair of curly brackets before the template name. If you don't substitute these templates, you won't be able to edit the Drive or Blitz page.
