Hey, purple/green are one of my fav combinations. Or you could always just wear the purple volunteer shirts. Now the orange/purple... ugh, horrible! Just horrible...

Its about Frakking time! ;D Congrats Thea and welcome to the team!
Your "creative solutions", David, are WAY beyond what is allowable for GMs to do in PFS. If you're running it in a homebrew game, fine, but its not ok in PFS.
So they don't know some things about a couple of creatures, so what? They'll figure things out by trail and error just like we used to before having Knowledge checks. I just played in 6-01 and none of us even had K:Engineering, so we had to do it the old fashioned way anyway. Smart PCs/players will figure things out even without the free pass that they get had they had the knowledge for it.
Its a type of silent auction, not a sale. Around here we have a similar but different type of silent auction. You buy tickets and then choose how many tickets to put towards each item. Unlike the scenario, in our method the winning ticket is then drawn randomly. So someone could have bid essentially $20 and the winner could have only put in $1 worth of tickets and still win.
Now, I have heard of auctions like the one described in the scenario, but not often, and usually for those than can afford to lose the money if they don't win.
I've used Parkwhiz.com for parking the last two years. Last year I did a month or so before GC so got a parking lot about 8 or so blocks away from the hotel. From Wed to Monday it was I think $70, but it was park and stay, no in-and-out. This year I'm about four blocks from the hotel in a covered garage from 6am Wed until 6pm Monday $55. Of course I got my parking in January... But for six days I'm paying what a lot of people are paying for 2 days or so. Plus its like half a block from Scotty's. :)

Well, there is one table that seats 14, I think, and I'm putting 2 6 person games there. The booths I am only seating 4 players plus a GM. We have some tables that are pushed together, so I am putting 6 at those - those might be a tad snug, but not like trying to put 6 in a booth, I don't think.
Well, two years ago I played a six player game in one of the booths... It was... cozy, especially since the hotel wouldn't let us check out bags so the GM and I had all of our crap with us. Ugh. ;) Actually it was with the same character I'm playing this year too.
I'm looking forward to:

Oh sure! You post this just after my wife finished cutting out and taping the maps together. I ain't telling her! Thankfully she doesn't read the forums much. ;D
Hmm... Most of the scenarios that have the "fun" are ones with little combat:
I know you said no multi-part scenarios, but part 3 of the Quest for Perfection is a lot of fun and definitely a different scenario. Way of the Kirin is similar and not a 3 parter, though it is a 3-7.
Confirmation definitely qualifies.
Delirium's Tangle might work well too.

As Jon said, you can pick up your stuff between 3 & 5 Wed. There is no GM/volunteer meeting this year.

First off, welcome to the Pathfinder Society!
Well, since you already had a number I'd suggest either contacting the GM with your actual number and ask him to change the information in the report. Since you've only played one game that'd be the easiest thing. Had you played more that a few you could have the Campaign Coordinator, Mike Brock combine numbers. If you can't get a hold of the GM, message me here on Paizo and I should be able to get it fixed for you with a little information from you. (I'm the Venture-Captain for the Mid-Michigan area.)
Its the GMs responsibility to report scenarios, you don't need to do anything. You can enter as little or as much information into your profile as you want, but it really only matters if you're playing the character in a Play-by-Post game here on Paizo.com. When the GM enters your correct PFS# into the session, it will appear in your profile/character's sessions tab. Its important to make sure you bring your PFS# with you if you don't memorize it. I usually write it down at the top of my character sheet so I can remember which character is which (I have 17 currently).
If you have any other questions, feel free to ask them in the Pathfinder Society General Discussion further up the messageboard. If its PFS specific you'll get a better chance of someone who knows what you're talking about seeing it.

MaartenDF, welcome. About 3-4 years ago my homegroup switched to PFS as our format for our core games. At that time none of us had ever gone to a convention and had no real intention of going to one. Because PFS had the paperwork, and allowed for taking our characters "on the road" I went to my first Con a few months after we started, since we had some friends that lived in a city that had the con. We were all geeks and I thought it might be fun to try out, and a 5-star GM Doug Miles was running an exclusive scenario that only he could run in Michigan and I wanted to play it. Ever since I was hooked.
I had no intention of ever playing anywhere but with my homegroups, but since then I've gone to 3-4 conventions a year and my friends and I are even working to start our own convention (Tavern Con). I've spread out and run at several stores regularly as well as kept our original homegroup running PFS and switched a family group I ran for to PFS as well. I love being able to experience an entire adventure in one sitting and know that I could go about anywhere in the world and be able to fine a PFS game and play with my own characters.
It is a bit more paperwork than a normal homegame, yes, but after a while you stop noticing, at least I have.
As one of the GMs running 1-4 for the 1-11 special, I welcome new players to my table. Its one of the reasons I sign up for the low tables. I love introducing new players to PFS and sharing my love for the game.
I honestly would urge you to think about playing something other than the Saturday night special. Bonekeep 3, I think, would be a bad experience for new players since its pretty much written to kill characters in bad ways (at least the first two have and I don't see Jason changing that).
