Important Food Policy Announcements

Kitchen Closed Saturday
The BobCon kitchen will be closed for an event during most of the day Saturday. There will be an open lunch hour available for everyone to use the kitchen as they need. Before and after that, many of the food items for snacking will be relocated outside the kitchen, near the beverage coolers in the mudroom. Thank you for helping the Cook-Off participants as they work their magic! Note: All BobCon attendees are once again invited to participate in the Farmer's Market Cook-Off judging (e.g. dinner) Saturday night at no cost. The price for free dinner is no kitchen during the day. ;)

Honesty Jars
Many BobCon participants bring potluck meals... giant pots of chili, meatballs, and similar food items to share with others. With increased numbers of attendees, these meals are not stretching as far as in years past. This year we are introducing an "honesty jar." If you eat a meal made by others, and didn't bring a meal to share yourself, please contribute to the honesty jar (a couple of bucks for a bowl of chili, etc.). At the end of the weekend, BobCon staff will divide these funds among the individuals who provided meals. Thank you for participating and keeping this tradition sustainable. Note: This does not include simple snacks like bags of chips, which we encourage all participants to bring and share freely. Cooking and heating appliances are available, if you decide to bring your own meals, and a quesadilla maker will be on hand for those who choose to bring items to create quesadillas. 

We've had trouble in recent years where folks would bring a case of drinks for themselves, put the case in the fridge, and all their drinks would magically disappear. This year, feel free to bring your own beverages, in your own iced coolers/containers, but there will be no room in the refrigerator for them (exceptions aside). Note: Beverages will be available for purchase from coolers just outside the clubhouse kitchen. Canned drinks will cost 50 cents each, collected in a nearby honesty jar.

Registration 101

photo-schedule-260There are a few key things everyone should know about Registration. Hopefully these will help you jump into some of the cool events we have available this year.

  • Create an account once – Once you create an account (and click the link on the confirmation email to activate), you are good to go – for years to come. Please make a note of your account information.
  • You should register for your own event – unless you are not planning to play (i.e. your are the GM for an RPG or you are teaching).
  • Don't hesitate to be an alternate – if a board game fills up and we have another copy, a second game can be run. Plus, sometimes people are just unable to play in a game they are registered for.
  • Modify your schedule – you can add or drop events all the way up until October 22, the Tuesday before BobCon. This allows us time to produce a chart showing who is signed up for what. You an always change your schedule at the convention.

Relax, Socialize and Have Fun

photo-fun-260BobCon is about getting together with friends and having a good time. THAT IS ITS PURPOSE. We know that everyone's schedule is hectic. There are kid's sporting events/tournaments, school activities, weddings, etc. We hold BobCon because many of us simply cannot take the time to go off to a convention. This is local (for most) and laid back. It gives us an opportunity to see friends. Please consider coming even if it is only for one evening during your busy weekend. After a long day at a sports tournament, it might be nice to relax with friends. We definitely want to see you. And do NOT feel that money is an issue, we will not turn away anyone if they can't pay or it just doen't make sense for them to (they are coming by to socialize). WE WANT YOU THERE!
