    Well that killed all chances of me going this year...maybe next year. I would be nice if they could just hold Botcon in the early summer when most people are on recess from either school or college and its one of the more popular vacation times. I was hoping it would be something more in driving distance of Rhode Island or at least in the summer agian.

    I think I might actually be able to go now... thats only about a 7 hour drive from me.

    About how much $ will it be to attend all days and get the exclusives?(if I want them)

    Awesome news about the location, but not so great news about the days. This may be a stupid question, but, the answer might affect my decision to go or not. Is it worth it if you miss Thursday? I ask because I'll more than likely have class that day, but not on Friday-Sunday. If I can get my one friend to go with me, and I can save up enough money, I'll definetly be going.

    Man, I had heard a rumor of Orlando being kicked around as a possible venue. Hearing it being in Ohio kills any chance of me going. Oh well, hopefully one of my friends that is going can get me a loose set.

    Mainly just the early registration for Primus package holders, so Friday you don't have to stand in line....well, it's Botcon, you'll be standing in line, just in a different place.

    Ok. So, if I pre-register, I have to show up Thursday? Probably another really stupid question, but, if I'm going to go, I might ast well know as much as I can. If I go, I plan on registering as soon as I can. That way I know I'm going, and I'll be getting a set of figures.

    Ouch! I looked at reservations..... $135 a night.

    Kickback, was there a promo code for discounted room rate? Or is that the actual discounted rate?
