logo-bobcon2013-288Event Registration live and ready for you to begin making your schedule and signing up for the events in which you want to participate! It is also time to Submit an Event in order to make sure the games you want to play are offered. It is easy to do and BobCon will be the better for it.

The Event Schedule is Live

The initial 2013 Event Schedule is now online and ready for your planning perusal. Our event coordinator, Aaron Guerra, has done a great job of lining up events for the weekend. But the list isn’t final – we can always use more events. That is where you come in! Run an adventure in your favorite role-playing system or simply make sure there is a game of <insert favorite game here> on the schedule. This convention is about playing the games you want to play. Check out the BobCon Game Library to see a partial list of what we have available if you need any ideas. You can Submit Events right now! Event submission will be taken through Friday, October 11, but don’t wait.

Register a User Name 

In order to sign up for events, each attendee will need to login to the site. The first time you do so, you will need to register for a user name. If you signed up last year your information will still be there. Once you do, you will be sent an email with a link to follow in order to validate your new user name (this keeps the bots out). Once that is done, you are ready to load up your schedule. The great thing this new systems does is keep all of your event choices readily available. That way if you login later to add or change an event, your current choices are already pre-populated.

Don't Miss Out

Most of the events have limits on the number of players it can support. Register early so you do not get left out of the games you really want to play. Alternates will be taken, of course, just in case someone doesn't show or gets delayed in another event. We will also try to run a second table if we have enough players and additional copies of the game. But don't take the chance – Register NOW! Remember, you can always add to your Event List later.

Policy Changes

We have a couple of new policy items worth mentioning, both good!
  1. Kids 12 and under are free! In the past, if kids were old enough to play games then their parents were sort of expected to pay admission for them (we scrimp and beg each year to pay for the facility). We don't think anyone ever had an issue with this, but this year we're making things a little simpler for parents with a clear kids are free policy. Yay!
  2. No pets allowed. However, crated dogs are allowed if a hardship condition exists. Approval must be requested in advance, the dog must remain crated while inside the facility, and you must clean up after him/her with your own equipment.

We are getting excited and hope you are too!
