Volunteering in the library was a great way to meet some people, and peruse the goods. I did that several times.

February can't come too soon!

We're hosting the Family Game Experience again on Saturday, February 16th from 1pm to 6 pm. The convention as always is family friendly! If you just want more time with your family to play in a quieter environment with someone who can teach you the game or play with your family, just come to the Family Game Experience. No pre-registration is necessary. Anyone who came last year, let us know what you thought of it.

Sam! I met you at BGG.Con, although I wouldn't fault you if you don't remember me.

Yes, there will be a Math Trade for SaltCon in February. I've run it in the past, and I'm planning on doing it again this year.

I'm glad to see some more people coming from out of state!

A portion of our attendees play RPG's and others would like to learn more about them and or try playing in a starter session. Due to this we are looking for Pathfinder Society, D&D Encounters and possibly other GM's to host and run RPG games during the convention.

If you would like to run an adventure for people during the convention please contact us at volunteer@saltcon.com and give us your proposal.

All event sign-ups are done through the SaltCON website so you will not have to worry about that process. We will also promote the event on our website, Facebook group and on this BGG thread.

People who run events may be eligible for discount and or free admission. See our Gaming Events policy at the following link.
http://www.saltcon.com/index.php?dispatch=categories.view&ca...

All event submissions are subject to approval by SaltCON.

Thank you!

The hotel room rate at the Sheraton is $112 per night. Please tell them you are with the SaltCON group. If anyone has any trouble, let us know. We weren't provided a code or anything. The Sheraton told us that you only need to say SaltCON and your room rate will magically drop from the $200's per night to $112. See you all very soon. And Happy New..... Ok, a few more hours
