    If the could hold off until the first of April, it's fine by me. That's when I get paid. XD

    Hey, if they get the online registration thing done, they can take all the time they need. :)

    :banghead:  I'll be on a cruise starting Saturday until Easter & I REALLY want to be able to get a Primus package, this was supposed to be up late Febuary/Early March. I just hope they hold it off until after I get back.

    I appreciate greatly that they're letting us know about the delay, but I wish they'd give us some idea of the sort of delay we're looking at here. Are we talking days? Weeks? More than a month? If registration forms won't be available until at least, say, mid to late April, it would be good to know. As it is, I find myself checking their site multiple times per day so that I don't risk missing my chance to get into the customization class, and so if it's going to be a loooooong delay, it would certainly save me a lot of headaches to know that!

    Hope the website doesn't crash when online registration opens up. Fun Pub should keep the Fax Lines as backup.

    Ditto here. I was hoping that that was what was holding them up.

    Once up, how long does it usually take to sell out of the Primus Packages?

    A couple months. It really varies from year to year, though.

    What prices are we talking about here? This is my first Botcon. It looks like the only day I'll be able to attend is Friday. I'm going to be attending to some business up in Orlando that week, but I have to come home Friday night. Any idea on what admission is on Friday? Was looking at general admission Saturday with the two kids but it won't happen.

    General admission is usually $10-15, I think.

    If you want to preorder the Primus package and get all the amenities like the box set, Saturday night dinner, special events, etc., it's usually around $365 if you're a club member, a bit over $400 if you're not.

    No. Admission to Friday is Pre-Reg packages only.

    However, nothing to stop you from registering for the Primus package, hanging at the parts party, picking up some new toys, and headin' back on your merry way.

    Good to hear that they are going for online this year. Hopefully reg won't open up over Easter as I'm sure lots of folks will be away and unable to register, missing out on custom classes / bagged sets / whatever.

    Hopefully it'll be more successful than the fax line was last year. That was just painful.
