the biggest hassle about running a bigger event is hauling all our stuff back and forth to the hotel every day. I could just leave it all under our HQ table, but there's nothing stopping someone walking away with one of our signs or a box of badge ribbons or a stack of our handouts or prizes.
I thought about getting a footlocker, locking it, and attaching it to our HQ table, but given the very reasonable terrorism concerns at a convention, I assume this would be a non-starter.
Is there anywhere on-site that a gaming group could stash stuff safely? I've been working under the assumption that there is not, but I figure it couldn't hurt to ask.
