WOPR 1-10

The first ten WOPRs ran from 2003-2008.

Ross Collard and Scott Barber founded WOPR, including Dave Jewell in the first WOPR Announcement. Rob Sabourin and Roland Stens helped organize WOPRs during this period.

Paul Holland established himself as the pre-eminent LAWST-Inspired Workshop facilitator at WOPR3 (taking over from James Bach), and has been the primary facilitator at every WOPR until WOPR23. He has been the lead facilitator at many conferences and workshops, has trained many other facilitators, and has established the highly effective methods for facilitating the workshop we still use today.

Nick Wolfe served as the FU (Facilitator Understudy) at multiple WOPRs during this period.
