    This sucks, with FunPub selling their 2 exclusives early next year and now this, I probably wont be able to afford a non attendee set before they sell out.

    TEXAS ?! Wow, my mind = blown. Lotta signs pointed to chicago, but thats cool too. Anywhere woulda been good with me, but yeah.. those are kinda bogus dates with a lot of graduations taking place around that time period... I know ppl will defend fp and the dates being just what they had to be but, Ill be damned if that wasnt just another oversight.

    edit: whoa whoa whoa.. thought I read june for some reason.... april is FINE for ppl with/in school >.>, my bad.

    Good to hear so many people are able to go.

    Me, I was considering Botcon, and might have done Texas, except I have a different con I'm going to that weekend in town.

    Really, though, scheduling a con in late April is something I don't like all the same, from the POV of when I was still in university. That weekend can be volatile due to being right around exams.

    And now they're sold out of the 29th.
    This is.... really annoying, to understate matters. I was hesitant to reserve initially as it'd likely be only me there and now I'd have to leave the 28th
    ...
    Smelt it. Time to check hotels near-by or to see if I can share a room with someone else.

    *bleep* Texas was the only place I could realistically make it to and they go and have it in April. May or June..even July and I'd have been golden. At least I have family there that could maybe pick up some sets for me.

    Booking our hotel now. Its a La Quinta about 7 mi from downtown. Think it was around 75 a night, for one king bed, and five nights. We're going to rent a car here in KC and drive down, its about 8 hours. Gonna be awesome!
