    Catch #22- The compulsive planners that are drawn to this game can't complete their plans to attend without knowing what it costs. The comittee can't know what it will cost indvduals without an idea of how many people will be sharing the fixed costs... :hammer2: I'm glad this one is not my headache.

    I'm going anyway, but it's hard to recruit without hard numbers...

    Could we have them 60 days out?

    Grifftavian, Rusty and others, I'm hoping that a member of the Committee will be able to given you a definitive answer shortly. (I'm only an adviser.)

    Doesn't matter to me, personally, I'm in. If I say, "Will I see you there?" then it follows with "when is it and how much does it cost?"...if I say "I don't know" then it will be answered by "Me, either". Meanwhile, airtravel could be going up with the cost of petroleum and calenders are filling up. Maybe if we could delay researching those two techs they'd be a non-issue....;)

    *giggle* if only RL worked like civ that way...

    i do hope to go, and i'd be driving not flying so the date the cost info comes in a bit more flexible for me than some, since i don't have to buy plane tickets. but the registration cost is a definite factor, and i haven't registered at the hotel or officially said here that i'm in because i don't know yet. when i first heard about it i hoped i could stay with my in-laws and just drive to the hotel each day, but they're actually a couple hours away not as close as i thought. /sigh huge map size and my terrible knowledge of geography, gets me every time!

    OK, delay researching flight and calenders, reboot on standard map and we're good to go.... while I'm at it I think I'll go into LifeBuilder and delete those bears before they can maul my retirement accounts.:lol:

    It's great to see you on the forum again!

    She says it's time to repeat her quote " for people that practice running the world every day, you're not very well organized."

    There have been some setbacks in terms of planning and personnel on the Committee in recent months, but work has resumed. Once more details are for certain a Committee member will disclose them.

    Well then someone needs to quit whining, put down their blanky, get older, get a job, and for the love of mike, MOVE!!! :lol:

    EDIT: Apparently lost the whole other half of this post (weird that). Anyway, this thing is coming up REAL quick; how soon before the finalized details are posted?

    There is an open call for proposals for break-out sessions for this event. Details can be found in that thread started and being managed by Lead Organizer Annalee "Cartimandua" Barney.

    On behalf of the Committee, yes, more details are forthcoming.

    Here it is at last -- registration for the event is now live! :cool: Don't forget to reserve your room at the hotel where this get-together is being held.

    If you register before July 13th, it will cost $95US -- a $25US discount off the regular price. Similarly, use the event's promotional code to get a discount on the room... it is automatically applied when you follow the reserve link above. Only 25 such rooms are available, and the code is only good on bookings before July 14th.

    I'm out; lost that week of vacation to someone with more seniority. Silly union rules. :)

    Have fun. Looking forward to see who you get for the Polycast. :D

    I was looking forward to this for awhile. Unfortunatly I will be gigging all that weekend. If there's a live game that will be hosted online my sax player and myself may just have to join into it.

    Excellent idea though, it's surprising that this hasn't been done yet with the popularity of the series.
