Unicon Convention Timetable

We're currently in advanced planning mode for Unicon, and are planning on expanding to three days from the current two days, starting on the Friday.

Which timetable do people prefer?

Rego: Friday 10:00am to 12:30pm
Session A: Friday 1:00pm to 3:30pm
Session B: Friday 4:00pm to 6:30pm
Session C: Friday 7:30pm to 10:00pm
Session D: Saturday 10:00am to 12:30pm
Session E: Saturday 1:00pm to 3:30pm
Session F: Saturday 4:00pm to 6:30pm
Session G: Saturday 7:30pm to 10:00pm
Session H: Sunday 10:00am to 12:30pm * (Daylight Savings Begins)
Session I: Sunday 1:00pm to 3:30pm
Session J: Sunday 4:00pm to 6:30pm

or

Rego: Friday 2:00pm to 4:00pm
Session A: Friday 4:00pm to 6:30pm
Session B: Friday 7:30pm to 10:00pm
Session C: Saturday 10:00am to 12:30pm
Session D: Saturday 1:00pm to 3:30pm
Session E: Saturday 4:00pm to 6:30pm
Session F: Saturday 7:30pm to 10:00pm
Session G: Sunday 10:00am to 12:30pm * (Daylight Savings Begins)
Session H: Sunday 1:00pm to 3:30pm
Session I: Sunday 4:00pm to 6:30pm

Of course, that's assuming a standard (for Unicon) 2.5 hour session. If we expand out to 3 hour sessions like the other conventions, then the days sessions would be:
1: 9:00am to 12:00pm
2: 12:30pm to 3:30pm
3: 4:00pm to 7:00pm
4: either 7:30pm to 10:30pm or 8:00pm to 11:00pm

What are peoples thoughts on the matter?

4 x 3 hour sessions works
Don't forget we used to do this with TBW and it worked okay.

3 hours sessions are good ;-)

I'd go the first set - makes Friday worth coming in for, assuming you think you'll get enough people.

If you go back to 3 hrs sessions, lose the break at 3.30-4...

As a game master, I'm very much against losing the 3:30 - 4:00 break.

At Arc (which doesn't have the break) I hate running in that third session of the day because there's no break. If the game before runs late (which usually does) you're then rushing to the session without really having the time to get your head into the right head-space.

Even as a player I find that a problem.

Its not like its a surprise no break. Be organised for it?

The really late end to the night makes it difficult to get home anyway but by car, and even then if you have a lot of events on you can end up leaving the con at 11.15, getting home after midnight... and then having to be up less than 7 hours later to get back to the con. I'd rather have 30 mins more sleep than 10 minutes of extra time to get from session to session and then 20 minutes of sitting and waiting for things to get going again. I find I lose momentum.

ymmv, clearly :)

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
