Hopefully by now everyone should have heard something from Bob and Tonya. They are still looking for Tier 1 GMs and getting stuff hammered out. They have a lot more going on this year than in times past. They have 3 specials being release and for the first time ever doing over night gaming. Star Finder scenarios release that Friday and the first Star Finder Special will be Thursday Night. In addition to getting stuff prepped for Paizo Con Memorial Day Weekend. Lots going on. :D

Okay GenCon is finally knocking at our doors. So this is the time to see who all is going to be able to go, and the ones that plans have changed.  I am going to work on the logistics on everything once I get all the confirmations.

Thanks.

I am going.

Any chance we can leave Wednesday between 1 or 2am so that would put us there around 2 to 3pm for check in, and time to get our badges? We could avoid the rush of getting our badges Thursday morning? Just a thought?

I am also willing to take the first drive shift that morning?

I will be holding a meeting before the evening slot starts on July's Game Day.  During this time we will discuss the dates, and times of departures from Jacksonville as well as when we will be leaving GenCon.  We will also discuss the location for the departures, and the safe locations for everybody vehicles while everybody is gone.  By this time we will have everybody confirmed on the trip to GenCon 50 to get the true calculations for the cost for everybody on this fun road trip.  I am looking forward in seeing everybody during Game Day!

Bad news. My friend has run into some bad financial woes and may not join us. I will try to get a definitive answer soon, but she works on commission, so it may not be something she can calculate easily. I myself will be joining the caravan as I have already bought my badge.

Sounds good.  Hope everything is all good with your friend.  Believe me I know how it is being Commission only.

So she wasn't able to get a badge before they sold out, so I'm pretty sure she's not going. I'll try to be at the Julyy 22nd Game Day, work permitting, so that I can hear what the plan for the caravan is.

(Copied from GenCon Leads)

Just over a month until The Best Four Days in Gaming!
After last week’s wall of text, we will spare you a repeat of that. Just some brief updates.
 
If you are GMing Starfinder, Tonya is sending out links that will get you to the NDA that must be signed to gain access to the Starfinder Core Rulebook Preview. If you have not yet received that email, watch for it. Remember, as someone under a non-disclosure agreement you are not to share the document with anyone. It was provided solely so you could learn the rules and materials in order to GM your events at Gen Con more effectively. It is very gracious of Paizo to provide this material so far in advance of the event, so please do not betray their trust.
 
For those who notified us that your badge is missing from your Gen Con account, we have notified Paizo. They are working on the issue. We assume that once corrected, you will receive the standard email notification from Gen Con but since that process is not 100% foolproof, please watch your account. If you have not received the badge by the end of July, send us an email and CC Tonya.
 
We are currently working on the roster lists so scenarios that have been published can be dropped into your account. We hope to start that process early this week, but it might take some time to get everything dropped to all GMs. Future scenarios will be dropped as they become available.
 
The issue of the book rewards has been settled. If you are a Tier 1, 2, or 3 volunteer your rewards include a copy of a printed product from Paizo. This year there are four options from which to choose from:
Starfinder Core Rulebook (this is the standard edition, not the limited edition)
Adventurer’s Guide
Game Mastery Guide (softcover)
Advanced Player’s Guide (softcover)
You MUST make your selection using the online google form located HERE to secure your choice. If you fail to make a selection by the deadline, it is possible Paizo will choose a random book from the list for you, or perhaps forfeit your reward. Do not let this happen to you. Please complete the form ASAP.
 
A lot of people ask about volunteering to help with set-up on Wednesday. Generally, tradition is people just stop by at times throughout the day and help out for as long as they want. We certainly appreciate the help, but do not have an official signup roster. If you want to help, just show up. We will be there from 8am until 5pm.
 
Finally, yes, we still need volunteers. Not only to fill some last slots, but also to fill in should an existing volunteer have to cancel. We have a few slots of HQ and PFS RPG to fill. At this time, Starfinder, Pathfinder Academy, and ACG events are filled. We still have a few hotel spaces remaining. If you know of anyone who may be interested in volunteering their time, please direct them to the original Call for Volunteers blog post that contains all the necessary information and to the online questionnaire located HERE.
 
Well, that’s enough for now. Next week we will discuss the HQ/Marshal Guidelines and directly related topics.
As always, if you have questions, comments, or concerns, please let us know
 
Sincerely,
Gen Con Leads

Hello GC50 gang!

I intend to drive with my friend Matt, leaving early on Wednesday, in hopes of getting there to run SFS by 8pm although that seems a little extreme!!! Intend to leave mid Sunday after running the morning session and picking up some last minute gifts!!! :)
From back reading it looks like there will be  a car with three and a car with 2??? Super excited about this trip...27 days to go!!
Regards,

Since I will be rooming with Maria and Max, it might be easier on the drivers if we are in the same vehicle. That way only one driver will have to stop at the La Quinta.
