So we told you to try the "quick Program reference sheets", but now it turns out that those may be wrong too! Arrrrgh!
But fear not! The Sign Ghoddess has smiled upon you! Check the room signs for the Daily Programming, they are correct and updated as of midnight* the night before. Changes made after midnight are lost to the Lords of Chaos...
* however, no excuses are made for stupid speeling errors since the signs are typed in after midnight.
The page after the one labeled "Saturday Morning/Afternoon" is actually Sunday's program (the program items starting with "Buddhist Theory of Ten Worlds," etc. are actually for Sunday). The real Saturday page is the last page of the schedule, cleverly hidden after the page labeled "Sunday Morning/Afternoon" (the first Saturday item is "Terrorism around the World").
The listings on the right side of each page really are the people on the program items for that page -- they were moved along with the rest of the page copy.

The treasure hunt token can be anything or anywhere, but if you follow the clues, you can't lose.
Be polite and remember your manners, if the token is a smaller part of a larger part, do not dismantle it or try to take the token until that something is no longer part of the larger part.
And remember... Do not damage hotel property!
