Schedule of Events
10am game room opens
will be shelves, so we can have the big wall o' games for play. The gaming
room is open nonstop from Thursday morning until Sunday night.
1:45pm set-up for Flea
2-3pm Flea Market

out some shelf space and get those unplayed games back into circulation.
Remember, an unplayed game is an unhappy game. The flea market is free for
all members; however, dealers may not sell new games at the flea market.
Having a room that we could allow only sellers into before the start time
worked great at Game-o-Rama, and I'm going to figure out a way to set
space aside so we can do this at the Game Fests as
11 pm main room closes.
