Directions via Google – you may park in the parking lot or in the parking structure – the ramp is to the right of the main doors.
There may be last minute rooms available. Email Kanina at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have ANY concerns, go to the Ops desk or speak to a ConCom member. You can also call or text them at 424-266-8894. If it’s not an emergency, you can also contact them at @penguiproblems on Twitter. This information is on the back of your badge!
If you’d like to volunteer, please stop by the Volunteers Desk near Registration. Volunteers get tons of limited-edition swag, a room to crash in with others (depending on hours worked) and the chance to get their badge refunded! Ops, Hospitality, and Registration, in particular, need you! If you have any questions, you can also email email@example.com.
Penguicon has attendees, guests, and staff of all kinds of gender presentations. We have worked with the hotel to have clearly marked all-gender restrooms available on the second floor, as well as typically designated men’s and women’s restrooms on the first. There are gender neutral designated restrooms at many other conventions and universities – their purpose is to make sure no one can be accosted for being in “the wrong place” when they simply need to go to the bathroom.
While you will not be charged an additional fee to participate in any events at Penguicon, our Geeky Burlesque Show and our Massage Therapists would be grateful for any tips you can provide. Also, our sponsored charity, DAPCEP, is accepting cash through our charity raffle. We will announce the winners at Closing Ceremonies on Sunday.
Don’t forget to visit our convention-run bookstore, the Writer’s Block, in the front lobby past the check-in desk. You can purchase a book authored by one of our Guests of Honor or any participating author who is currently attending, and you can find out the Reading Room schedule. Except for the GoH books (which we purchase separately), all non-tax proceeds go to those community authors!
Please give us feedback, good or bad, on how we’re doing this year. (Please contact Ops for problems you need resolved during the weekend).
