|Not from the convention, but you get the idea...|
So, the question was asked at the convention why my bright, smiling face wasn't there running games. The answer is in two parts:
1) Bill Hoyt got to me first. Events bookings are on a first-come, first-serve basis, mostly because I need to get my vacation time-off requests in by March 15th every year. Vacations are granted by seniority, so I have to take what I can get - and book early or not at all. Some weeks are Right Out, due to things like student move-in and move-out in the University dorms, so getting my time off is very tight.
2) This is Brett Slocum's event, not mine. Brett does a really good job of getting people to come to this event, and he had a very full schedule of games. I am both space- and time-intensive with the kind of games that I run, and Brett is very aware of that. If he wants me, he'll let me know.
As I've mentioned, I can either organize events or run games. I can't do both. See also my Events Guide, if you will... :)
