GlareCon is still going on, although right now it is 8:20 eastern time and the first game isn't until 11:00 a.m. I figured I'd share some tips on how to effectively enjoy a con. Some I've learned while I was here, some I've learned before.
-Realize people not part of the Convention exist in your hotel. Be polite and don't scare the children.
-Make sure you do know when your continental breakfast ends.
-Make sure you're decent enough for continental breakfast, though pajamas are acceptable.
-Pack snacks and even lunch items to enjoy so you can money on restaurants.
-Don't get to worked up about the hotel room, because if it's a good con you won't spend much time there.
-If sharing a room with friends figure out sleeping arrangements BEFORE the first time you sleep.
-Figure out if people snore or if they're light sleepers, giving people ample time to buy earplugs.
-Respect that you showering isn't for you, it's for everyone else.
-The pool/hot tub is not a bath. Seriously, use the shower in your room.*
-Do your best to practice manners
-Socialize with new people, if not why would you spend all this money to go out of town to only hang out with your friends at home?
