    Direct quote from an Email I just got from the club...

    "I can tell you this - we will not be offering a first 100 pin this year. Instead we will offer a first day of registration pin. So, if you register in the first 24 hours after registration goes live, you will receive this special first day of registration cloisonne pin!"

    Sounds like a win-win. Making more of them probably means less cost per unit made, and it means more happy people getting the pin.

    I can't tell you how happy I am that they're doing this. It's a very positive change.

    I agree with this change. This should cut down some on the NOWNOWNOW instant rush to register for anyone who was interested in the pin, but not the custom classes.

    Glad to know I'll be getting a pin this year! :D 
    I am all for this idea, I hated missing my pin last year by only a few numbers...

    Good, in the last few years it's been nuts trying to get that pin-- they go through the first 100 in like 10 minutes.

    All I care about is getting the free figures...But how much is it going to cost to get in? I've never been to a Botcon before and the way they set it up to be a surprise sucks. I know I'm gonna go though, and I would like to be there the first day... Actually I want to go all the days...

    If you are talking about the Primus package there is only one Attendee Free toy. I don't believe anyone gets a Free toy just for coming as a walk in. The cost to get in depends on which package you are going with. All of it will be explained in the brochure when it comes out. To make things easier, I would plan on buying the Primus package...

    Yea, a good rule I made myself was to start saving right after the previous years Botcon. Sounds crazy, but I am all set to go :D ...

    It's not a bad policy. After all, you know it is coming the following summer, and hopefully we'll know after this year's event when next year's will happen. That would be ideal - sorting out flights is so much easier further out.
