Meal Times

The 4-H Center Dining Hall will operate for lunch/dinner Thursday, all day Friday and Saturday, and for breakfast/lunch on Sunday.  Menu with hours here!

We'll also have a food truck just outside of the main gaming building after the dining hall closes.

Marina Shuttle:

We will offer hourly trips to and from the marina across the street from the 4-H Center--leaving the Lodge on the hour and leaving the marina on the half-hour--but these marina trips must be scheduled at least two hours in advance, and we will cancel any trips where no one is signed up by that time.  There will be sign-up sheets for this available at Registration, plus you can sign up for a future slot with the Marina shuttle driver if you're already on a trip.  You can also email in a ride request to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  up until July 5.  Note that if we should run out of parking at the 4-H Center, the marina shuttle will run every hour, regardless of sign-ups, until on-site parking is again available.

Standard sign-up times for the marina shuttle will be as follows.  We will also provide after hours shuttling as needed, but all such requests need to be in before 10PM the day prior.

Thursday: 3:30PM - midnight

Friday & Saturday: 9:30AM - midnight

Sunday: 9:30AM - 12PM

On-Site Shuttle:

The on-site shuttle will run all day in a circle around the property, servicing multiple stops along the way.  Look for the shuttle stop signs!  The maximum estimated wait time at any given stop is 20 minutes.  This shuttle will usually be a golf cart, but in some circumstances it could be a car/truck/van with a POC magnet on its side.  We may also run two of them during peak times.

Thursday: 4PM - 1AM.

Friday & Saturday: 10AM - 1AM.

Sunday: 10AM - 11:30AM.

PLEASE NOTE that the 4-H Hotel will provide luggage check services to all POC attendees. So if you stay in a cottage and wanna lock something away, or if you ride in on the shuttle and just wanna avoid carrying your stuff around all day, all you have to do is visit the front desk!

  We need all the input that we can get to make Play On Con the best convention that it can be. If you have programming concepts, share them! If you have artistic ideas, let us know! If you want to help with convention operations, contact Marc to join the crew! We welcome your talents, and hope that you will volunteer to help!
