Woowoo another A-kon : D Hopefully better than the last 3 : D Called the Westin, we have a room with 2 double beds reserved under or name, though I am in a conversation with my future roomie about maybe combining forces to get a suite which may or may not end up cheaper, and that will be the deal breaker. I'll keep everyone posted.

Here's how the cash cash munneys works out with the 2 Double bed traditional room:

$199 + tax per night. (Tax estimated at 15% (unless state and city taxes have changed, this is the correct amount)
Tax - $29.85
Total, 1 night: $228.85
Total, 2 nights: $457.70

/4 = 114.43 ~ $115
/5 = 91.54 ~ $92
/6 = 76.28 ~ $77
/7 = 65.39 ~ $66
/8 = 57.21 ~ $58

Gas and parking is estimated per vehicle. If you're riding with me from Lake Jackson in the van, which seats 7 if you stick someone in every seat belt (no seatbelt-less people in my car) and staying all through Sunday, this is how parking and gas works out:

Self Parking - $12 per $24 with no in and out privileges.
Valet - $24 for 24 hours, with no and out privileges.
We're doing self-parking. So it works out to $24 total.
Here's what dues work out to, rounded up to the dollar because I don't want to handle your change.
/4 = $6
/5 = $5
/6 = $4
/7 = $4

Gas - for now, until I can talk to my mom again, I'm estimating gas at $90 total.
/4 = $22
/5 = $18
/6 = $15
/7 = $13


Here's some things that need discussing as we've had problems with them in the past:

Once you confirm that you are in the room, your spot is saved, and the first 4 people to say "Yes, you can count on me to be in the room" are guaranteed to get a spot on the beds. It doesn't work on 'who gives me money first' sorry, we're elitist, it's 'who tells me they're in on the group first' so those guys who told me a week after last A-kon that they'd for sure be on for next year are getting a spot. Sorry. This is how it has always worked with us. Do not try to con people out of their bed spot. Especially me or Sarah. Because we are fucking pissy if we don't get good sleep, assholes. If I come in at 4am and there is someone sleeping in my spot I will roll you off the fucking mattress. This is not something I am cool about, especially not at A-kon.

Once you give me money, you do not get it back because I have had way to many problems with people dropping out and me struggling at the last minute to try to cover their spots.

If you drop out within 2 weeks of the con, you owe me the full dues for your share of the room because I'm sick of having to cover your asses. Money is srs biz and I'm going to shit kick the next person who says, 3 days before the con, "I can't come because I spent my pay check on a video game instead of saving it to pay you $75 for my part of the room that I promised I'd be responsible for : D Soooorryyyyyyy" I will try to get your room covered, but if I can't, you owe me that money you promised to me you'd be responsible for. I'm seriously thinking of writing up legalized contracts, guys, this is getting ridiculous.

DO NOT give your badge to any one. We had a serious issue with this at the last convention. By the Guilty By Association law, if you do this and get busted for it, EVERYONE in the room can get in trouble for it as well. And I'm not just saying that, this actually happened at Ikkicon and I was pissed, so just don't do it.

DO NOT go into the con without a badge and get kicked out. Likewise issue.

DO NOT ask to borrow someone else's badge.

DO NOT bring anyone into the room that I don't know.

DO NOT tell anyone we have more than 4 people in our room.

DO NOT give our room card to anyone not in our room.


Okay, this is the list of people for sure coming:

1. Jenny Ayala
2 & 3. Sarah Brewster (and Matt Brewster?)
4. Aaron Greiger (he sleeps upside down in chairs, so don't count him in the who gets a bed count. Unless he decides he wants one this time. Which he is allowed, as he's deserved one for a while but never taken it)
5. Charla Horton
6. Torie Murdock
7. Jeff Philbrick

Other people who I suspect may be coming but I'm not sure:

Matt Patterson
Hunter Robinson
Matt Anderson
You?

Give me a call if you want a spot in the room. If you're from Lake Jackson, plan on having at least a deposit ready for me when I'm there for Spring Break (March 14 through 22) because I am so not waiting until a week before to actually get something from you. You guys are the ones that drop out the most. =\ I'm not naming any names, but Matt. Hunter. Sarah.

Contact me during Spring Break, I will pay you in full for room, parking and gas at that time. (Based, of course, on the current body count estimate at that time.)

No, I don't want a bed this time, but I may take you up on that offer at Oni-Con. Their chairs suck.

Also, if you want me to drive this time, let me know at least two weeks in advance, and I will have MY vehicle in trip-worthy condition. I will be more than happy to drive only my vehicle and take a maximum of three other people with me. I will be glad to cover the parking for my vehicle as well. I don't mean to sound bitchy about this subject, but these are the only conditions under which I am willing to drive.

Also also, if there is anything I can help with to make this con go smoothly, you can always come upstairs and talk to me about it. I'd love more than anything to see this con go through without a hitch.

NOTICE: Also also also, don't forget to mention that people will be in charge of buying their own badges, as usual. I haven't looked up the prices yet, but that will be in addition to the other con-costs.

Also x4, we should set up a macro itenerary / shopping day of doom during which we can prepare for the con. Let me know if you want to get together and plan stuff.

Re: Bed
I think Charla's in line next for bed after Aaron, so we'll see. Also, you're one of the ones who likes to say they're coming and then they're not and then they are and then they're not, so you're not fully down to come until you give me money. You and Patterson both. =\

I has cash moneys for j00, for me and Matt. Matt's pretty sure he can go, but with the military we really don't know. >_< He's supposed to be graduating and leaving the week before, so we're gonna act as if he's coming. I'll get you his dues and stuffs over Spring Break.

We'll have to talk about dem cosplays. =D
