(I've redacted the address listed in one of the above post.. The Paizo/Pathfinder community is awesome, but these are publicly accessible forums and we do not recommend posting personal information such as addresses).
While we love how our community is already stepping up with interest in donating to help out homeless youth, we have some logistical and operational concerns and we feel its a little too close to the show to start making plans for this year. Reading this thread has definitely got our minds going about what we can do for 2016 and beyond, but we feel its just too short notice to set this up properly for PaizoCon 2015.
Bahbrahb, I'll be sending you an email later today with some more details, including setting up Cocoon House with some gaming supplies to get the kids' weekly game started. Thank you for your awesome work helping youth through this non-profit. I hope you have a wonderful convention!
See you there!
Additionally, if you are a GM and want to add a PFS game on the PaizoCon online schedule so people can register for it along with their other events, we can add that up to May 11th. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mike Brock has told me that he is happy to add any of these middle slot games run by community members to the event reporting for the Paizo PFS games.
"The Philadelphia cops called it a "nickel ride." The name came from the prevailing price for a ride down a rickety roller coaster in an amusement park -- which should give some of idea of the ancient roots of this particularly cruel form of police torture. For decades, cops abused criminal suspects by throwing them, handcuffed and unsecured, into the open back of a police van, then careening around sharp curves or slamming the brakes on a rough ride to central booking.
To keep with modern times, you'd think they's change the name -- call it a "$79.95 All Day Pass," or an "E-Ticket Ride." Or, here's an even better, crazy idea to bring policing practices into the 21st Century: How about stopping "nickel rides" altogether?"
The following information, including dates and expected products, is what we currently estimate and may change.

We have short 20 minute walk-up PF RPG delves going on for most of each day and historically, seminars usually have extra seats open. There's also a board where we put unsigned-up-for-event tickets and people can leave tickets that they decide they won't be able to attend. Anyone can grab a ticket for an event off of there. Also, you can also check in with a GM to see if a ticketed player hasn't arrived at the start of the game. Its up the GM how long they want to wait or if they want to accept new players. Be open to trying new games or replaying old adventures, there's an atmosphere at conventions that can make even adventures you've already played a lot of fun, but so much of that convention atmosphere is what attendees themselves bring.
Pick up games also happen, but because I'm working during the con, I don't have much experience with those other than always making sure we've got open tables for people to use. During the 1p-6p time on all 3 days, the OP room (grand ballroom) will have a ton of open tables and there should be space in Evergreen 1 or 2 during the other slots.
Keep in mind, this is the first year we've done 4 days and left the 1p-6p time slot "open" where there is no PFS going on. It may mean seminars/games are a bit more crowded during that time. My suggestion would be that if something catches your eye on the event list, enter the lottery for it. You can always trade or give it away once we run the lottery.
On Monday, the event schedule is pretty light, but its the last day of the convention and you'll find lots of people are hanging around, making connections and chatting. 6 years ago at PaizoCon 2009, I sat and chatted with Cosmo, and some other employees. I had no idea that a few months later they would be looking for a CS rep and the rest is history :)
After discussing this a bit internally, Robot Chris and I think its best to remove it from the lottery and allow it to be open registration.
[PaizoCon 2015] EVERYTHING IS AWESOME! (Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Clowns) - Sunday afternoon, 1:00-6:00 pm
As soon as the tech team is able to turn that off, I'll be going through the people that managed to sign up for events and booting them so it doesn't affect their lottery results.
I can see there are quite a few people that have hopped on the PFS/non-lottery train while this has been up. if any of you see this can you please remove yourself from the event, it will save me a lot of time.
I am currently drooling over the list, and it doesn't look finished.......
Not even close. I've got Friday's games entered and I have about 18 more seminars. Unfortunately I need to call it a night, but I'll be back in bright and early to enter more! I've also have an assistant tomorrow as well to make it go faster.
