gaming, with nothing planned other than the teaching schedule from 9am
to 3pm, with a few different games being taught in two-hour time slots
throughout that period. (I'm teaching Agricola at 10am, for example,
with an introductory family game to be followed by a full game with cards.)
Some people arrange start times for longer games, but most folks just
arrive and see who wants to play what. Some people bring snacks, others
buy food on the premises, and others go out to eat.

- Eric is partially correct. Yes the day is fairly unstructured and people are welcome to leave the hotel to eat whenever they get the urge.
One of the changes with our new venue (starting with UG13) is that the hotel has set up a food cart in the lobby. The cart is not open all day. From memory the cart was open either 11-1 or 12-2 and then again from 5-7.
At some point in the week before the event, Pitt will confirm all the details with the hotel and will announce on this list the exact hours that the hotel will be serving food, and if it's available the menu of items they are serving.
Jeff, the cart is open for multiple hours, so it shouldn't prevent you for volunteering at the front desk and getting your kids some lunch.

I should be able to help at the Front Table in the late afternoon.
The 3 or 4pm shift, as long as it does not conflict with Wizard. :)
Thanks and I hope to see you at SSG this week.

I can volunteer for an afternoon shift, but I would like to be able to
participate in the Wizard tournament. Let me know what shift will not
conflict and I will be there.
See you at SSG on Monday.
