    Got this from the club. Basically, if you have a room booked because you're not sure if you are going or not, your card will be charged in the new year for the reservation. It's refundable but didn't want you guys to suddenly find you're $150 down when those holiday season bills start coming through:

    Good. I'm glad they're doing this. It will weed out the flakes and give opportunity to people that is serious in going.

    I anticipate a 35+ page thread full of rage on January 3rd, followed by an even angrier one after April 9th.

    Yup. And 80% of them will probably not even attend Botcon.

    IMHO. If you're not committed to attend Botcon, you shouldn't have a reservation. There are many that are going and can't a room due to those snagging a spot in the block because they think they may go.

    Just got the email too. Please front page this so the people who don't check email daily know. I'm just glad they considered the holidays and will wait to charge.

    Just got off the phone with the hotel, and its not a hotel policy to charge any part of your still before you check in. The hotel policy is you have up to 24hrs before check-in to cancal your stay or you will be bill for the 1st night stay. It was FP that wanted the 1st night stay charged to the credit cards to make sure they meet their block out numbers. As we have found out somethings AAA or the goverment rate was cheaper then the con rate. So I recommend all those attending let FP know that this policy of theirs is BS.

    Well, that sucks. I can see why they did it (to sway off the "maybe's", but we have to get hit early so the numbers are better?
