OryCon 33 Schedule

Here's an incomplete OryCon Schedule.  Of course, it appears that several of the panels I'd like to attend happen at the same time (mostly on Saturday).  And I need to figure out when I'm going to eat.  An additional complication is that I won't be staying at the OryCon hotel, but at another venue several blocks away....


Arrival at PDX train station: 11:35 AM  -- insert possibly late train and figuring how to take the Green MAX to The Portland Doubletree here (...find stop 7763 and take it to stop 8343, Lloyd Center/NE 11th stop).

.... Departure will be tricky.  I've got a train ticket for the 6 PM train, but domestic bliss would be better served if I changed it to a 3 PM train... so on one hand, there are a few last panels that I could squeeze in, but on the other hand I may be too fried by Sunday afternoon to take any of it in.   Oh well.
