Hey everyone, long time no talk! :)

Just checking in to see if any of you guys are planning on hitting up Gencon this year? NKB has officially said he won't be going, so it looks like I will be flying solo this year (unless I can convince someone else from the Fox Cities area). ;)

I am 75% sure I am going on a short trip to Gencon ths year. No working there, no volunteering there. What the hell.

I'm planning on driving down Friday night, driving back Sunday afternoon. I scored a free badge, but I will probably pay through the nose for long distance lodgings, that I have yet to lock down.

LRO is going to be working for Chimira there all 5 days, I think he will be busier then I was working at the Gencon auction. So I suppose that does not count for him being there.

I have a hotel reservation I can transfer to you, except it is for more days than what you are planning.

Elric, if you need a room, let me know. Mine is by the airport and is $99 per night.

Thanks BHL, I'll let you know. :) So if you're offering to transfer your room, does that mean that you aren't going this year?

I did get on the waiting list for the hotels next to the convention center, but even registering on March 1st wasn't early enough to get a room for sure.

Right, I won't be going this year. I have other things going on.

I am on the waiting list too, and I got on the list just hours after the downtown hotels filled up, so I am thinking if you pick up my reservation and reservation number you should also be able to take my spot on the wait list.

Out of curiosity, how fast do those hotels fill up after badge registrations open up?

Downtown hotels? 15 minutes, if not faster.

Not even joking.

If you would like my room transferred, let me know soon. I have to ditch it this week or end up paying for a full night and I won't be doing that.

Well, it's looking more and more like I'm going to cancel this year as well. I already have my badge but we're closing on our new house on Sept. 9th, so I'm not going to have the available cash to swing a hotel room and gas on my own. Here's to next year I guess. ;)

Same here. I have free badges from two different sources, and I can't make use of them due to the costs/family duties.

Sucks to be grown ups sometimes, doesn't it?

I am still planning to go. Does anyone want to unload badges that they paid for? I can see if any if my Cincinnati friends have not bought theirs yet.
