Hi All, a reminder that we have some changes in our venue this year, and some more details on the location.
Unfortunately, the Campion ballroom is not available for gaming on Saturday and Sunday this year. Instead, gaming will take place in Casey Hall, a separate building a short distance across campus from the Campion Hall dormitories. There will be copious signage and maps posted in various locations to help you navigate.
We have a variety of rooms available to us in Casey, including one large room with multiple tables, an indoor atrium with lots of room and casual seating, a few smaller rooms with 2-4 tables each, and outdoor balcony with seating, and private conference rooms that are good for large groups or groups that want quiet and privacy.
Badge pickup will still be in Campion Hall, as that’s where the Seattle U staff are located to check people in and handle parking, etc.
We think this is going to be a great set up for Go Play, but it is different for last year, and not nearly as central. Let’s all make sure we help our neighbors navigate and make this a great Go Play. We’ve got a few volunteers helping us out this year, so don’t hesitate to ask if you need any help at the venue!
And as always, you are free to use the casual spaces in the Campion lobby for gaming as long as the other guests aren’t disturbed, however scheduling and the Donut will be in Casey Hall.

Sunday is Tie Day. If you like ties, or just own a really cool tie, or both, then wear a tie!

Hey, just a reminder that online registration for this year closes Monday night at 11pm! We do take walk-ins as well, but because we’re split this year between Casey Hall as our gaming area and Campion Tower as our overnight accommodations, and because of the layout of Casey Hall, it’ll be much easier for you and us if you can register in advance.
Also, the game scheduling forum is still open, but we will also close game scheduling on Monday night. GMs, once your game is full or scheduling is closed, you should go into your post and give us a definitive list of attendees so we can make signs for the con—we’ll need that list by Wednesday afternoon. In the meantime, don’t be scared, schedule some more games! But also don’t worry if you’re not into the whole pre-scheduling thing, we have the usual ad hoc scheduling and the donuts for helping you organize pickup gaming on the spot.
Man, it’s so close! Go Play NW 2014 starts in seven days!

Just a couple of week left! We have some news and a partial venue change for this year’s Go Play.
Unfortunately, because of a scheduling conflict, the ballroom at Campion Hall will not be available Saturday and Sunday. So gaming and scheduling will take place in Casey Hall, a short distance across campus from the ballroom. We’ll have several rooms and a large atrium space there for gaming. Sorry for the changes, it really is beyond our control. The new space offers several private rooms for gaming and should be quieter than the ballroom.
We will still have the ballroom for Friday night gaming and for the feast, should the weather force us indoors.

As we already noted, registration to stay on-campus during Go Play NW 2014 will be closing this Thursday, June 5. Shirt orders will also close this Thursday, so we have time to get them printed up. Remember that we don’t ship shirts, you must attend to pick up your shirt. And remember, everyone loves a sexy John Harper-designed GPNW shirt!
