    I've searched the thread and haven't seen an answer to this, and if information is coming, awesome. How will we know who to head to at each of the various events to pick up our orders?
    Well, you can pick them up from me, @Punzie, or @gigabrain at J. J. Foley's, I'll have them at the pigroast, and @gigabrain will have them at the Westin BoardGame of Thrones. I'm sure @Punzie will correct me if I'm wrong. . .

    That's pretty fluffing accurate right there. I figured Tuesday and Wednesday are small enough crowds and enough people there know us that just you'd only have to ask 2 people, at most, before being directed to the correct person. Thursday I expect to be fairly obvious as there should be a BOATLOAD of steins sitting next to giga.
    The during pax meet ups you'll be looking for me (unless @khadour or @gigabrain want to set up additional ones) and will, hopefully, again be obvious as I'll be the lady standing there with boxes of steins.

    Look for the person with the huge pile of boxes and steins. Trust me, it'll be easy to find them, even if you don't know what they look like.

    Happily on Sabbatical. Don't bug me.

    Stupid question but those hours to pick up the steins during PAX...It's 6pm-6:30pm correct? Hmmmmm, I'm supposed to be in a tourney at that time...Is there any way I could pick it up at a different time/place? Say would it be easy, simple & convenient for you to drop one off at the byoc desk Friday morning or perhaps at the Westin in the morning or maybe I could meet up with you in the Queue Room before 10AM? Whatever happens though I definitely don't wanna put you out cause you're probably a little stressed (to say the least) by the workload as it is

    Note that there are pickup times on Saturday and Sunday as well. . . if those still aren't meeting your needs, you mentioned BYOC - are you in BYOC this year? If so, I can probably arrange a pickup in there . . .

    Just received 175 beer steins at work. I am now the receiving department's hero. Downside - one of the steins was broken in transit, so we need to get that one replaced.

    I just re-checked my invoice and noticed I put my apartment as my delivery location. It shouldn't be a huge issue if that's where they're sent, but is it too late to change where my steins ship? I'm skittish about letting packages sit in our mail room.

    Are you going to be in town on Saturday or Sunday? The pick up locations are in the Westin, so it does not require a PAX pass to enter . . .

    As the steins have not shipped out yet, you should be able to PM @Punzie and get your shipping information updated.

    Actually on second thought, If someone wanted to be a hero (or heroine) perhaps they could pick up my stein for me at a pre-PAX event & meet up with me sometime Friday (Queue Room Friday morning perhaps?) If it's worth their time & energy I'd give a couple bucks, feel free to PM me :)

    Friday is especially difficult for me. That 6pm is my first "free" time that day (in quotes because it isn't really free time. expect to see me eating and/or distracted). Not only am I NOT available that morning, but I am not carrying glasses into the BCEC (all the meet ups are in the Westin because that's where the glasses will be. minimal pack-muling ftw). Or trying to find someone in the super crowd that will be in the queue room (that's just is not feasible).
    I might be able to do a late night meetup on Friday, say 11pm? But I'm pretty sure that would have too low of a turnout to be worthwhile. (Getting back to Westin, to my room, get steins, return to mezzanine and then reverse it at the end = ~30 minutes on top of the time I'm actually standing there for pickups.)

    Alternatives:
    1. Beg @khadour or @gigabrain to do an additional meetup.
    2. Post pax, I'll be contacting anyone who didn't pick up their stein and giving them the chance to pay shipping to get it. As I plan to go into a coma after pax, don't expect that until about a week after. Also, expect me to be annoyed with anyone who doesn't pick up at pax just because they know this is an option. Boo extra work.

    No worries Punzie I totally smell what you're cooking...If worse comes to worse you'll just have an extra mug (Not too worried about it, $8 isn't a huge loss) But in the meantime...khadour or gigabrain, what are your guys (or girls) schedules for Friday? I have a mug that needs delivering & I'll give a couple bucks if somebody wants to meet up with me & hand it over (If it's not worth it that's ok, I'm a cheap skate & I don't see myself changing between now & PAX lol)

    The Game Night on Thursday starts at 4, right?
    I'll be getting to Boston around 3pm and I'm not too sure how well I'll be able to get to any of the other pickup times but if that's starting so early, I should be able to get there with no issue. :)

    Yes! I meant to post this. I'm sewingpunzie on twitter. I do try to post where I am a lot, but last year I was able to receive messages much more reliably than send them (so don't use it to ask me something time-sensitive).

    Just noticed some people filled out the stein order form the day after I called it closed. @katstrawder and @Thunderous_T, you did not make it on the order list. IF (and that's a big if), a postPAX order happens or some people just never get their steins and are unreachable, that info will be posted in this thread later.

    Just dropped off steins for packaging. They may or may not be ready for gamenight tonight. Steins that were ordered naked (without a box) will be available at JJ Foley's tonight. Anyone who ordered theirs to be shipped, that won't happen until after PAX. Because Punzie is in OMFG SO MUCH TO DO AND PAX IS ALREADY HERE mode.

    Hey guys, I've had a bunch of unfortunate junk keeping me busy since PAX. I'm behind on EVERYTHING. I have shipped to a couple people who paid for shipping. The other ones should go out in the next couple weeks. I wish I could go faster, but I've been temporarily displaced from my house (nothing serious, don't worry). I will also be sending messages to those who did not pick up their steins and invoices for them to pay for shipping. Hopefully I'll get those done this week.
