  Sorry, but this will be my first Gencon.   I've signed up for a Pathfinder Society game for levels 3-7.  The event says that materials are not provided.  Does this mean I have to bring my own character sheet and if so, am I able to make a level 3-7 character just prior to the event?

You'll want to check with the Pathfinder Society directly. I'm not sure if they allow you to make a character above 1st level, or if you need to play through in order.

PFS doesn't allow creation of your own characters above level 1 (other than if you're applying some generic XP from previously running pre-gens to a new character I think).

In the past they have had pre-gen characters appropriate for each of the level ranges.  You may need to remind your DM to go pick up a pre-gen packet if it works like last year where were laminated sets.  Previous years they just had a bunch of print outs and you'd need to grab one from a table before starting.  If you search around on Paizo.com in the products section there should be a free download including all the pre-gens for each of the levels if you want to see the options.

The materials you'll need that aren't provided are basically a set of dice and a pen/pencil.  The DMs will have maps and generally miniatures or miniature substitutes.  Since you're using pre-gens there wouldn't be any need for the usual requirement that you have the books available your character is created from.

  Okay, this helps.  Thanks.
