OryCon 23 at a Glance..................................................... 64

Welcome to OryCon 23!  Yet again, the usual suspects have been drafted… err, volunteered to bring this convention together.  Registration and Pre-Reg are in the Main Floor Lobby of the hotel.  Fan Tables and Volunteers are in the same general area as the Registration tables.  Artifacts are there somewhere, too.  We encourage you to visit the Volunteer table often, as you can win valuable prizes!  J  Refer to the Volunteers section below for details.

Upstairs is where a lot of the regular panels will occur, in the Klamath, Santiam, Wilson and Nehalem rooms.  The Dealers’ Room is also up there, as well as the Music programming. 

Downstairs, you’ll find the Art Show and the Gaming programs.  For role-playing games not taking place in the Gaming area, you will still need to sign up there to participate.

The Interstate Wing (entrance right next to Registration) is where the non-panel OryCon rooms are located (although Nestucca has panels, and it’s down there, too.).  The Fan Room, the Green Room, the Internet Café and the Office are all on the first floor of the Interstate Wing.  Go to the Office if you have someone that needs to register after Registration Table hours.  Lost & Found is also in the Office, as well as Security. 

Have a great Con!

Food Guide – Inside the Hotel

Coffee Garden

Good light entrée-type food. There’s an espresso machine there, too.  J  Service can get a little overwhelmed at times, so please be patient.  7:00am – Midnight Thursday, 7:00am to 1:00am Friday & Saturday, and 7:00am – Midnight again on Sunday.

Brickstone’s

11:30am – Midnight Thursday, 11:30am to 1:00am Friday & Saturday, and 11:30am – Midnight again on Sunday. Still good food, nice atmosphere.

Quiet Bar

Will be available for general Lounging and quiet conversation.  Check the Daily ‘Zine for hours.

Volunteers

Here Be Dragons. Where be Volunteers?    

Yes, it’s that part of OryCon that you knew would be coming. Each year there is a core of 20-30 people who work all year long to get OryCon started, but without Volunteers at OryCon we could not do the job.     

You ask, "What’s in it for me?" Well, there are prizes that are usually donated by the dealers and other attendees of OryCon, but the biggest reward is know that you have contributed to the whole and made OryCon much more enjoyable for everyone. In other words you know you have made a difference.     

We will be holding our drawing Sunday afternoonish. "How do I get entered into the drawing?" you ask. Well, it is fairly easy. For each hour you Volunteer, you will receive a raffle ticket. These tickets are then all thrown into a pot and drawn on Sunday afternoon. In effect, "The more you play the better your chances."     

If you are interested in Volunteering in a specific area or department, let us know and we will do our best to make it happen. We know your time is Valuable, and We thank you for donating it.
