Ice Cream!


This year at #PlayOnCon you’ll hear the jingle of the Ice Cream Boat. That’s right, boat! Just like an ice cream truck there’s an ice cream boat that goes up and down the lake. They’ll be swinging by the docks on Friday & Saturday at 1p & 7:30p. Or, if you’re in your canoe, feel free to paddle out to them and grab your tasty treat!

What to bring to Play On Con


It’s your first #POC or maybe you skipped a few years and want to make sure you have your bases covered. Either way we’re here to help you get ready for the best weekend this summer. Here’s our list of things we recommend bringing to #PlayOnCon.

Our late-night food option has been confirmed! Pazzo Pizza has agreed to join us for #POC12! They advertise taking cards and cash, and having a Gluten free pizza crust. Wifi while better, may drop, so we recommend bringing cash just in case. They will not have their full menu with them, so if you look them up, please keep that in mind, but they are still providing us with a large menu selection at great prices. They’ll be serving up by gaming from 8p-2a Th-Sa evenings. Be sure to swing by and try them out!
