Hey everyone,

I am so gonna make it thursday this time! I am not gonna miss this...  :P

Hello everyone... can't wait to see you all next year. ;D
Haven't bought my ticket yet, I am the stupid conger who runs out of money on the last day. But I will buy it the minute it comes on the site. Well I hoping we could bring our heads together and think of somthing fun to do other than food because like metioned not everyone wanted food. I did cause I am always hungry hehe...
Well I am glad that old faces showed up and are ready to meet up once again...
And the meet up I did attend was so much fun... Can't wait for next year.

So another thing I am wondering... Cosplay plans?

Post by: Maskenlav on June 09, 2012, 08:57:11 PM
hey guys this time for SURE I'll be there for the meet up as I already motivated/determined myself to do it without any side interruptions! My next year cosplay plan is to be a character from the a side scroller shoot-lots-of-things-for-major-points-combos anime game called Timeless for the 360. I will be wearing a tuxedo with a semi-large pink heart armband around my elbow and carry a homemade staff with a larger pink heart with 3 spikes, 2 on the sides and 1 on top  ;D

Personally, I haven't really put much thought into what I want to do next year. I have some back up plans in case I can't get something up and running, but I would really like to dress up as Kazuma from S-cry-ed. Sadly, since that requires a lot of molding and such, I doubt that I will be able to get it all done before next year. Haha
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: Haunterluvcookies on June 10, 2012, 12:58:41 AM
Kazuma is amazing! I must have pics, that show is amazing.

I have like 4 planned so far...
Hetalia- China
Alice in the Country of Hearts- Ace
Tales of Symphonia- Raine
D. Gray-Man- Link

I also might have another friend coming...mabye at least.

Another meet up sounds great. Lets defenitly plan this one out better.

Hopefuly we won't have any issues like what happen on day 0. And the schedule wont be out 1 day before the con. That way we could go to some events together.

Next year I'll make sure to get my cosplays in hand and not wait for some dude at Fanime.

Now, back to planing for AX.

Hahah, so it already begins, eh?

Well, I haven't bought a badge since I really don't know if I'm sure to have the time next year, but if I do, I hope to make it to one of these. This last year got kinda screwed by the ridiculous badge pickup line, hopefully that'll be better next year.
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: Haunterluvcookies on June 10, 2012, 01:25:59 PM
I am so gald that alot of last attendees want to do it again. So if everything goes right on thursday we can se each other again.
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: Maskenlav on June 10, 2012, 03:31:20 PM
knowing fanime I'm sure somethings bound to happen again on thursday since their not known for being 100% on top of things lol but if it does, after badge pick up I'll report right to the group!
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: Haunterluvcookies on June 10, 2012, 04:56:38 PM
I am going way early so I can get a good place in line. Even if I have to wait a couple of hours. I am not going to have anymore problems with badge pick up next year.
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: llaaannniiii on June 10, 2012, 08:52:46 PM
Hii! I'm not sure if I'm going next year yet until I hear news about improvements! Fanime was fun but I was still a bit disappointed. I might go just to see you guys :)

Post by: kane64 on June 11, 2012, 12:15:16 AM
I have noticed that the convention itself hasn't been as entertaining as it was a few years ago, but I am thinking that is in part due to the Earthquake for the 2011 con and this years power outage. I am hoping that it turns out better next year. And if not, I know I will have more fun since we are planning this meet up a little bit better and a whole lot earlier then last time. Haha
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: Haunterluvcookies on June 11, 2012, 12:19:14 AM
I love fanime and I am just hoping it will get better next year. No constrution, power outages and what nots.
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: Maskenlav on June 11, 2012, 12:26:16 AM
it's funny how Sac-anime is moving to it's own convention center after this summer show and I'm more hyped about the move than about fanime 2013 lol I guess once you've been around you lose that magic? Don't get me wrong I love spending a full weekend away and meeting new people but if that's the main reason/motivation for people then not much for fanime itself lol
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: kane64 on June 11, 2012, 12:35:59 AM
Sadly, I don't think the construction will be done by then, though we can hope that it will be. Cause once it is, that just means more rooms for other stuff for the con itself.

what do you think their putting in that big lot? I saw someone post a blueprint picture of what it would look like and it looks like some extra office space and by the pic the front parking passenger dropoff/pickup lot will be pushed up to the street and become a bracket shaped small zone, like  [   that. I hope they DONT cause having some office space and smaller zone would mean the eventual end for fanime AT the convention center with fountains gone and corporation literally next to us will kill the anime fandom vibe
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)

I hope not I like that convention center and the places that surround it!

Post by: kane64 on June 11, 2012, 03:21:59 AM
At first glance it may look like it's going to be an office building, but in fact it's just an expansion of the convention hall with a ballroom, more rooms for con related things and an outdoor event space.

You should read up on it...

Post by: echoshadow on June 11, 2012, 04:52:19 AM
If people stayed for the closing ceremonies they did mention it was kind of build with cons in mind.

And maybe next year Fanime would not plan two cons at the same time. It was bad move on their part for clockwork alchemy. I would have loved to attend but Fanime had my attention 90% of the time.
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: princesskitty18 on June 11, 2012, 06:53:53 AM
interested :)

but we'll see how plans go
highly unlikely that ill be able to go on thursday but i shall keep all things in mind :D

I would love to try and meet up next year, hopefully Friday and I will probably be bringing a few friends with me.
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: Haunterluvcookies on June 11, 2012, 04:29:30 PM
looks like it might be an intresting building though. hoping it helps the con...
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: Maskenlav on June 12, 2012, 01:09:23 AM
it'll help in attendee space thats for sure! lol and having the ball literally next door will help ALOT too (assuming it'll be large like the Parkside) so having everything next to you will cut back on losing friends who left across the street without you :P
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: kane64 on June 12, 2012, 01:13:23 AM
My thoughts exactly. And they could do the swap meet in there as well on the days that they don't have a dance going on.

I can't wait to see this new place. I also can't wait to order my badge... it means when I buy it that i am one step closer to Fanime 2013

I'm going to do the heart costume for sure now! So now you guys can't miss me ;D I know for sure I'm getting the badge when it's the cheapest cause I half-assed it and got it at 55 so this year I am going 100% on top of things
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: Haunterluvcookies on June 13, 2012, 10:33:06 AM
Heart costume?
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: Maskenlav on June 13, 2012, 02:41:22 PM
it's a tux with a big pink heart armband on my bicep and then carry a staff with a a larger pink heart on top of it wth 3 homemade spikes, 2 on the sides and 1 on top. It's from a video game for the xbox 360 called Timeless. You pick male or female anime characters and it's a side scroller that you shoot random colorful objects for combo points and my cosplay is a NPC boss.

If I had more money, and a lot more time, I would try to go to every big con out there. But alas, I cannot. T_T

I wish to go to many cons but alas my money is tight as well. So I can only go to one out of state con as of right now.
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: kane64 on June 17, 2012, 04:09:10 AM
There are so many in my state, but getting to them, or paying for a room, makes it hard for me to go. And the fact that I would have to call off work to go, and I can't afford to do that.
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)

Post by: echoshadow on June 17, 2012, 09:02:24 PM
I just got back from AM2, not bad for a mostly free con.
It was like a small fish in big bowl. The con just took up about less than 1/4 of space the convention center has. Heck, there was like a highschool sports tournament going on the other side of the convention center.

Anyways, AX is next. Then Sac, and a few small ones..
@hunter, planing is the key. I plan mine towrds the end if the year or right from the beginng.
Unless your crazy enough to just show up and let it flow where ever it takes you.

I did! I was wearing a tuxedo with a big pink heart around my bicep with a heart staff lol I just did what you usually do. panels, rooms, midnight hentai seeing, ect haha
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: echoshadow on July 09, 2012, 09:52:26 PM
I was there all 4 days. I saw the Lisa and Function Junction. Thoese where really great, Function Junction played almost 2 hours insane!
I was bummed out I didn't make the lolital fashion show or the lolita tea party, it was crazy how it was sold out. Other than that the usually panels, screening and spending money in the dealers hall.

Some how the room partys where a lot better this year it seem like an equal amount of boy/girl ratio.

The only thing that sucked was the x games closeing down the streets. It just made the walk longer. Other then that the x games crowd was not that bad. There where a few minor altercations but that was just your typical drunk guy making a pass at a female cosplayer.

I almost started a fight but security where there in a flash that was cool.

Other than that it was awesome. Meet some new friends, partied hard, and had a blast.

Well, it has been a while since I have posted, and as I can see a while for everyone else too. So I figure that we should start this ball rolling again and start our prepping for our meet up again this year.
Whose with me?
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: echoshadow on August 23, 2012, 05:44:41 AM
I'm down, although.. I kind of want to do 21+ meet and great, maybe like a room party. I thought about just going to a bar/club/restaurant but it can get too expensive or too crowed. Unless we have our own both/table. So a room party would be best.
But that's all up in the air... nothing serious. There lots of time to plan out something.

I think this could be fun, we just need to figure out a good day and time. If anything, I would think Thursday night around 11pm to midnight would be a good time for the 21+ meet up.

And maybe a 6-8pm meet up for the under 21 meet up?

What's everyone's opinion of this idea?

I think the reason for minimal activity was due to people going on vacations, school or work. And lets hope that this year they can get the schedule out a little earlier then last year, and that there is no power outages at the Convention Center this time. haha

Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: echoshadow on August 24, 2012, 06:31:05 PM
The main problem was the schedule went up 2 days before day zero. That just shot down any planing we had. And the power outage well that was a freak accedent.

As far as a day 0 21+ m&g that sound great. Over at AX we moved our 21+ m&g to day 0 and it was big turn out.

I'll think more about it in the coming months.

Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: kane64 on August 28, 2012, 02:13:04 PM
That's why I think we should have 2 sets of meetings, one for the any age group and another one for those over 21. We can start with ideas for what everyone wants to do for the meet up and kind of go from there.

Agh, cosplay... don't remind me. I still haven't got mine from that scamer I commissioned.
Besides that...

I think 2 meet ups would be best. Not following each other, but on separate days. It would be a huge bummer to have everyone meet up then tell them sorry but from here on, its only 21+.

Sucks to hear about your job Kane. I hope you find one soon. You'll find more openings once school starts.

Yep, it should have been done before the start of Fanime. I commisioned him on it since April.

I made a thread about in the buyers/selllers feedback section. It saves me the effort to explain it all.

That's the link to my story.
I'll be doing that form now on Maskenlav. Besides the time and effort to drive up there and do what ever, is really not worth it. I'll rather see his name be dragged on the mud in the forums till he correct's his mistake.

Chances are good that I am just going to slap together something or do a repeat of past years for my cosplay. Don't have the funlds and since not having a job for over a month really put a damper on what I can spend my money on.

I'm sure I'll have some type of cosplay by then, Which kind of reminds me I should really try and buy a cheap tux for the Black & White Ball. I was at a recent formal event, my tux rental had a hole in it. And diffenitly better dancing shoes.

On a side note the more I think about it, a room party does sound nice. A few of my friends may drive up form socal for fanime. but ohs wells more planing..

I know, they think we are made out of money.

I can only see how that would work out, if it had a set date on when it would be up. That way everyone would have the money ready.

Remember its the same people that thought releasing the offical Fanime schuedule 2 days before day 0 was a good idea.

that's just straight up not good. That will SCARE away attendees NOT bring them. They just should stick to pre-reg pricing and let the hotels deal with their own discounts or rates.

I know dude, they think we'll just fork over whatever they price things with a click of a button. They have easy income BECAUSE of us, while were out looking for jobs like a hunter's dog. I really HOPE they release schedules WAY before fanime's Day 0, infact they should go back to their previous ways like before 09. It was simple and effective. Now their just trying to add sub departments under sub departments lol

Well, most of the time things get rolling by mid December or early new years. Pretty much when college brakes start, since most of the staff is either working part time or students.

I guess I should start saving up.. if you think about it there is only 6 months left to go for fanime 2013.

Hi everyone, it has been a while. Anyways..
I have been thinkg of a roon party-ish, at lest thats what my roomies want, there is no set word as of today.

Thursday night meet up, for sure. But instead of going to a restuant how about we order delivery. That way we wont have to walk more than we have too. I know of a great pizza place I had after Fanime.

I'll aslo go to the pita meet up, but really it isn't much.of a party just a lunchen. Also depens what time, and if I'm avaible.

@hunter no worries after 2 years of my friends skiping out on anime cons I stoped asking them to go. Even though I did offer to buy their badges. Besides I always meet cool people to hang out with at every con.
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: Haunterluvcookies on January 28, 2013, 09:31:42 PM

Why not just have everyone meet at the park with a bunch of pizza and soda on thursday after you pick up your badge?
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: echoshadow on January 29, 2013, 06:24:37 AM
I like that idea of a picnic too last year, but... after sun set is get pretty chilly very quick. Also is the same reason why you never see anyone hanging at the park at night.
I wouldn't want to hang out in the park after sunset either let alone wait for people to show up. I might end up having a long conversion about tin foil hats and the government with the random bums there.

So that's why I want to have it in one of the hotel lobbies, a room, or somewhere at the con inside.

If I remember correctly I think it was Jake, or Jack's Pizza. I was very good. I'm sure the locals know about it. I go there every time I'm in norcal.

Pizza sound yummy, I liked when went to the I heart pizza. On the other have, I rather stay where its warm and safe. Also we have to come up with a meeting time and place. Then we can all chip in for pizza and what ever else we would need. I hope that pre-reg this year hours smoothly and nobody is stuck in line forever.when

Well, speaking of pre-reg looks like it will be held in one of the ballrooms in the Fairmont hotel. That is going to be interesting.
 
I can already feel the headache. But I hope your right, and it all goes smooth.

Q: When/Where can I pick up my membership for Pre-Registration?
A: Pre-Registration members can pick up their badges starting on Thursday, May 23, 2013; they will not be mailed beforehand. You can pick up your badge at the Pre-Registration/Early Registration area in the Imperial and Fairmont Regency ballrooms of the Fairmont Hotel. Please note that this location is different from previous years due to construction in the San Jose Convention Center.

I think this time around we should plan a 21+ m&g on top of the original m&g, but like always it  depends where. I really haven't been to any of the local watering holes in downtown, so I really don't know the prices and how good it would fit a party of 6 or more people.

i could ask a couple of friends of mine who live in san jose and see what they recommend wit both the 21+ and the regular group

hiii!! and yea busy busy busy. last semester and all, basically got senioritis, putting a show together with my step team which is always fun
and yea now that they came out wit the website (which looks awesome), and registration and everything, i think ppl are starting to come back to the forums and getting back into the swing of things. facebook is a good idea and kane and i can organize that again since thats wat we did last year.

like i said, i'm just really busy
but i'll stop being busy once i graduate XD

so from what ive been reading, it looks like we want to keep with the thursday theme
but what about moving it to friday?
not summer yet, so ppl still be busy and all
or maybe have the original on thurs and the 21+ on friday?
i dont know if im actually reiterating what someone already said (wasn't really paying attention)
but yeaa...

just throwing some ideas out there

cant wait to get back into the swing of planning things. i, as always, will be going in normal clothes LOL

I'll say friday for the 21+ m&g. Its a great way to end the frist day of fanime. We'll just keep thursday for the dinner m&g.

I'll start a new thread for the 21+ m&g. That should give us an idea how many people would be intersted, or at lest brain strom some ideas.

Great to hear you'll be on the b&w dance staff. What are you going to be doing? Maybe next year I'll join up for staff or at lest volunter.

i'm gonna be helping with the dance lessons and be on hand when they do decorations and stuff for the ball
last year i was a volunteer, and the 6 years before that i had just been an attendee.
but being a volunteer was amazing because i got to actually meet the men and women who i had already admired from before
and actually talkign to them and chattin with them is always fun too :)

i used to spend a lot of my time like wandering around dealers hall, doin karaoke
but i literally spent all my time last year in the ballroom because i had so much fun
it was awesome :D

I'm actually looking forward to the b&w ball this year. Last year was my first time, the year before I was kind of late and not really dressed for it. So being out of the dance scene for the last 5 years was like learning it all over again. Needless to say I'll be taking full advantage of the dance lessons.

I started a new thread for the 21+ m&g lets see how much interest it gets.

Hey there Kitty/Jackie,

Yeah, it looks like there will be a meet up again on Thursday night after pre-reg is done. Any who, I guess since we have started up the new year and registration has started up, I can update the list of people who want to attend the meetup. So, so far we have Hunter, Kitty, Echo and me going on Thursday right? Anyone else want to try and make it for the Thursday meet? No age limit for that one.

Didn't miss to much on here but as the con gets closer this forum has sprung to life. Fanime is so close! I have so many cosplays to very done before hand. Can't wait to see everyone again! This is way to exciting!  ;D

Personally, not much planned on my end, aside from the meetup planning. I wanted to get a hotel room this year but found them to be too expensive for my liking or they were already sold out for that weekend. ARG!!

Post by: echoshadow on February 20, 2013, 06:14:31 PM
If you wait till around April you'll see a few more hotel rooms open up. A lot of people cancel rooms.

Actually compared to AX, Fanime's hotel rates are 40% cheaper.

Alright haha just felt dead without being here lol yeah he's right it's like ALWAYS booked months before it, but closer to it people cancel or no show.

echshadow: yeah thats cause AX is the number 1 con in like California so of course they'd bump it as much as they can to make profit lol

It's true. We do have a Thursday and a Friday meetup. But we tend to plan more for the Thursday since there really isn't much else going on for the con on Thursday. If you live in the area, you are more then welcome to stop by on Thursday's meetup. If not, just keep checking back here for info on the meetup for Friday. ;D

im not staying in a hotel down there, so i can make thurs or friday
and again, it would be me and my boyfriend
it seems as if the friday 21+ meet&greet is kicking off relatively well, so that's good

if we can't do a all-age-group thurs, what would the timing be like for a meet up during friday?
again, it would depend on the schedule. but ehh..i guess we'll see how things go

Well I'm not sure about Sunday but yeah I kind of looks like that.

Any who, hows everyone been holding up? Its like really only a month and a half away. This month is almost over anyway.
Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: kane64 on March 27, 2013, 09:51:33 PM
Usually a Sunday meet-up is a bust because everyone is too tired for it. But so far we have an agreed upon Thursday and we are working on a Friday meet-up.

Please note that if I haven't added you to the meet-up for Thursday, I apologize. Please just make a note here once more or message me personally and I will add you to the list.

In addition, a time for the Thursday night meet-up needs to still be arranged. If anyone has a good idea for the time to meet up at and a good location to meet, so as to be away from the crowds of other con goers, let me know. Last years location was good and the time was also good, but due to the power outage, it kind of skewed the meet-up a bit.

Any who, hows everyone been holding up? Its like really only a month and a half away. This month is almost over anyway.

I've been holding up, been busy with work and have been lacking a lot of free time to post here, let alone really plan for the con. It's kind of making me sad that it's getting so close and I have nothing really planned out for the con.

This year will be my first time attending Fanime.  Additionally, my boyfriend is a Fanime staffer, so he'll be running around keeping busy.  I would love to come and meet more people, as it's rough to essentially be at a convention by myself searching for the few people I'm already friends/familiar with so we can visit.  So unless plans change at the last minute on my end, count me in!

36 days until fanime
hows everyones costumes goin?
hows life?
hows school/work/couch-surfing goin?

just wanted to say hi

but onto more serious matters: since the schedule still isnt out yet (of course..) we're still tentative on the schedule.
thurs would be ideal for this particular group because the 21+ group might be meeting friday
unless this group meets friday earlier in the evening and the 21+ group meets later on and then we can partayyyyy wit alcohol!
any thoughts/concerns/exclamations/epiphanies?
:D

LOL yeah... the schedule....  >:(
I already started on the con season with Anime Conji so now I'm itching for Fanime. As for cosplays I'm not doing any.

Well since most people are coming on Friday, lets do both Thursday and Friday. I kind of want the 21+ M&G for Saturday. But if anyone wants to grab a drink on any other day its fine by me.

As for Friday's meet up, it all depends on what everyone wants to do? I'm sure a lot of people want to do a later in the day meet up, close to dinner time.

Well for Friday, I'm not sure what everyone's time would be good. Last years seem a bit too late but I guess that going to depend solely on the schedule, once it comes out. I really do feel like a broken record saying that over and over again.

Tell then how about we plan the meet up spot, dinner options, etc..

Well I think for the Friday meetup I'm just going to make myself available and so anyone who wants to meetup can hit me up and we can work on a location at that point. Kind of make a mobile meetup for Friday. If anyone has a better idea I'm all for hearing it.

As for Thursday, I was thinking we should meet at the same location we did last year, hopefully this time there won't be a power outage that will cause the meetup to be weird.

As for thursday not sure if we are allowed in the con.

karaoke is always in the same room so that could work out
i know that i will be there for the contest :D
for thursday, only ppl who are doin early reg or pre reg could get in, but thats only just to get their badges
if ppl wanna meet OUTSIDE of the convention on thurs just to hang then that could be an option

Post by: kane64 on May 03, 2013, 10:57:56 PM
I figure we can do the same meetup location as last year for the Thursday meetup. Here is a picture of the convention center and the location we had for last year's meetup marked on it.
(http://i77.photobucket.com/albums/j49/Kane64/Fanime/Thursday_Meeting.gif)
This area won't be limited to people who have their con badges and whatnot. Anyone who happens to want to make it to the meetup can go to this area and meet. I figure it would be easier to give people an idea of where we can go.
Feel free to copy the image and mark an area that you would like the meetup to be. I know some of you want to have it in/outside of the meeting room "C" for the Friday meetup. I don't see that as being an issue. :)

Well..you kind of forget....no one showed up for the Thursday meet up last year.

Now on to more important news.

So...this may or may not kill the Thursday meet up. But since pre-reg. badge pick up will open on 7:00 pm, yes that's right 7:00 pm at night there would be a chance everyone might get their badge till after 10:00 pm

So. I'm currently debating where or not just to cancel Thursday meet up or just have it late at night? For those that planed showing up on Thursday what do you think?

Wow, that's stupid to have the badge pickup be so late on Thursday. If that's the case we can do the meetup somewhere outside of the con or somewhere in the line for early pick up. But if that's the case for early pick up this year, I am just going to wait until Friday to get my badge.

Personally, I still think we can do the meetup on Thursday. We just need to be better organized with the meetup then last year. And as for last year, some of us did get to do the meetup, but since the con had the power outage, they made us move from the meetup spot and that just messed everything up.

Post by: echoshadow on May 13, 2013, 10:07:46 PM
Well I say who ever still wants to meet up for Thursday we can but it would be very late at night. Around 10-11?..........

Or how about we just do it early? I'm sure most of us well be settled in our rooms buy 3:30 pm so why not just move it to 5:00-6:00 pm. That way we can have our dinner early and still kind of hang out in line to pick up our badge?

And I'm all ready..mostly, still have a few things to get ready. Need to find my luggage maybe get some shoes, hair cut, etc.

Title: Re: Looking for people to hang out with this year(2013)
Post by: kane64 on May 16, 2013, 07:22:52 PM
Well then Friday's meetup will be evening time in front of the karaoke room, say 10pm?

As for Thursday... I say we still have it at 10pm, but if anyone happens to get there earlier on Thursday, we can make a mobile meetup. I know I am going to be walking the convention hall after I get off of work at 2pm. So if anyone wants to meet up before the official meetup time, I will be around the Con from 3pm until probably midnight. Just so everyone knows what's going on.

Thursday is technically "DAY ZERO"

officially fanime runs May 24-27 Friday thru Monday. per the website.

though most ppl show up early on thursday for pre-reg and other activies since staff is known to set up early cuz they're awesome like that! :D

all the adventures, all the time... at least thru memorial day weekend for us fans of nerdly stuffs.

It's sad but it does seem to be just the three of us. I know I will be there Thursday after I get off of work at 2:30pm, so around 3-3:30pm is when I will show up and be walking the halls. And since I am planning to get my pass early on Friday instead of Thursday, I will not be partaking in a late night meetup for Thursday, i.e. anything after 10pm I will not make it to. Friday on the other hand, I will be there all day.

And yes I got my badge, the whole ordeal was a huge cluster fuck. One would think they would have more than 6 boths for 8,000+ people and be open way before 7 pm.

Wow, that's nuts about the Thursday night line. Glad I waited to get it on Friday morning.

Sadly, I had to bail on the meetup for last night, I was having a hard time keeping awake since being up so early to get my badge.

Did everyone else get to the meetup last night?
