Morning: Still jamming!

4:30 pm: Game showcase!
6:30 pm: We’re done — time to go home!

Note that this is a non-competitive event and you are not required to spend the full 48-hour period on site. Some groups certainly do, and we’ll be here the entire time, too, with security around the clock so it’s up to you and your team. But the idea is to be jamming in the same place as a community, so heading home and jamming from home during the day is strongly discouraged as it is not in the spirit of the event.
