Just a quick reminder that the deadline for registration is noon today, Pacific Standard Time. There are still a few slots left so get in there now if you haven’t already!

In case you hadn’t seen it, the conference schedule has been finalized and posted (barring any last-minute unforeseen SNAFU), and Jane has presented a personal invitation to YOU to play Cruel 2 B Kind on Friday night.

Register! - I need to be sure to order enough food for breakfast for us. I can’t do that until I know how many people are going to attend.

About Cruel 2 B Kind - Please register!
I got an email from Jane suggesting that she may change the location to a location she feels will be better for us, but wherever it is, we can get there from the hotel as well as from within SF.

The Exploratorium - we are going on Sunday. We are going to have a sign up sheet so we can collect money (they only take cash) -EGO is going to manage this, and then EGo has so kindly volunteered to buy the tickets for us in advance and hand them out to people.

Conference Schedule -As mentioned, the best thing about ARGFest is leaving it flexible for the schedule to be finalized. Just in the past two days I have had inquiries from Lonelygirl15 people (the video people) and the Op.Aphid PM, as well as an offer from 42 Entertainment to do a roundtable presentation for us. Woo!

The final schedule should be ready Monday. Here is a sneak peek (after the jump):


Important: The reservations telephone number listed for booking rooms at the group rate was incorrect. You must use the toll-free number instead: (800) 942-7348. Remember to tell them you’re with the Unfiction group at the Holiday Inn at Fisherman’s Wharf.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

ARGFest-o-Con 2007 will be held at the Holiday Inn at Fisherman’s Wharf.

Call now to reserve your room at the special ARGfest rate of $125 + tax… a great deal for a hotel in the heart of San Francisco tourism!

For those that missed it before, the official ARGfest hotel is the Holiday Inn at Fisherman’s Wharf. There are actually two Holiday Inns within a block or so from each other and one of them even has suites for those of you that want to share a bigger space.

To get the rate, you will have to call; it is not available online.

The phone number is (415) 771-9000 (800) 942-7348. Be sure to mention that you’re with Unfiction.


Hotel: Holiday Inn at Fisherman’s Wharf
Telephone: (415) 771-9000 (800) 942-7348
“Unfiction” room rate: $125 + tax

Tip: Be sure to ask for “Group Sales” when you call. “Reservations” can’t help and can’t transfer. -konamouse

Tip: And if you keep getting the recording on the main number, “Group Sales” is not on the menu they list. Just keep hitting zero and eventually you’ll get a real person. -aliendial

Registration is now open for ARGFest-o-Con 2007! Head over to the sign up page to give us a little contact information and to let us know which bits you plan on attending.

ARGFest-o-Con 2007 will be held Friday through Sunday, March 2-4, 2007, in San Francisco, California, USA. The focus will be on “How to PM a Game” and “the Future of ARGs” (these are working titles). The following weekend, anyone who is still in San Francisco, or who couldn’t make it the first weekend, will get together. Help is needed with planning both of these weekends.

This site is hosted by Unfiction and maintained by the users, moderators, and admins of the Unfiction forums. Join us, and together we will rule the galaxy.
