LAST CALL! U-Con 2015 OSR Track and Event Submission Info - FINAL UPDATE!

UPDATE! We are past our official deadline and extended deadline. This is LAST CALL for getting events submitted before pre-registration and ticket sales open! Get your events submitted by Thursday evening 9/17/2015 and I may still be able to get you in. Event submission officially ends on October 6th, but if your events are not registered by tomorrow night, your event will not be available during pre-registration for ticket sales or visability. So, if you have any ideas for a game at U-Con this year, get it in.

It's announcement time folks! It's official. The OSR Track at U-con in Ypsilanti Michigan is set to go this year! I will, again, be filling the roll of OSR Track Coordinator. Last year went very well and we had quite a draw for a first time track. I have been given permission to expand upon the old school gaming goodness that we can accept within the track this year (based partly on the discussion had during the roundtable that occurred in our seminar last year.) If you haven't listened to the seminar, go ahead right over here on Save or Die! 
With that in mind, I proudly announce that event submissions are officially open! Go ahead and register your events right here. If your event will qualify for the OSR Track (or any other tracks) please explicitly make that known in the comments box. I will be organizing the track events myself this year, so I will attempt to keep everyone's events precisely in the slot that they want to run in.
What qualifies as an OSR event this year? Well, let me tell you good people about the plethora of awesomeness that you can submit to me. Firstly we have D&D. But not all D&D of course (pssh, we have to have some type of integrity you know. Not to mention leaving some games for the other tracks.)
Official D&D:
All TSR Era D&D qualifies,
AD&D 2nd Edition
Rules Cyclopedia
Other TSR Era Stuff:
Gamma World (TSR editions)

If I missed your favorite, contact me and make sure, but it will likely be fine to run.

Again, this list is hardly exhaustive regarding all of the great Old School RPGs in the world. If you have one you want to run and it isn't here, just let me know. Let's make this thing huge. I want to give your favorite Old School game a place to live and breathe.
