    I'm bummed, I just saw that captured prey 3rd party was canceled. Did they get busted or anything? Anybody know if anyone else had a room or that will be selling 3rd party stuff let me know. Feel free to pm the info if you think posting it would get anyone in trouble

    Those who have posted about parking, thanks a ton.

    Does anyone know anything about parking with a trailer? And where dealers can unload?

    As of right now, there's a limit of one per person. So unless you can find someone that doesn't want one for themselves, you may be s.o.l.

    Heading out tomorrow morning (5:30ish)! Does anybody know what the restrictions are, if any, for what the voice actors can autograph? I have a Beast Wars box set that I want David and Venus to sign. See you all tomorrow (I will be wearing a Galvatron shirt on Saturday).

    Update - their credit card payment system relies on an AT&T system that has been discontinued in this area. Don't worry though, a replacement system will be here on Saturday!

    So I'm debating about doing kind of a last minute trip, I'd get there friday night and probably leave either saturday night or sunday afternoon. Does anyone have any extra space they'd want to help a brother out with? HOtel, bunk bed or what not?

    Do Gregg Berger and Venus Terzo have things at their table to sign? Or do I need to come to them with stuff in hand already?

    I do not know about what Venus has on her table to sign but there is a print that has Greg's G1 characters. It is very limited in number and it would be at BDixonarts' table in the artist alley.

    Wow that is a bummer. This is one of those huge hiccups that will cause massive delays. Maybe a paypal card reader could be used? A lot of vendors use those nowadays.

    If anyone decides to come up here be sure to pack for cold weather. I had my a/c in in Georgia wednesday so i assumed it would be comparable. Did not pack appropriately. Had to go shopping for warmer clothes when I got up here.
