    Hey Everyone,

    Starting this thread as the place to get things organized as we plan for the big event this coming May. Basically topic 1 will be housing and where people plan on staying, who's bunking with who, and all that good stuff. Let's try and get this finalized in the next day or two so we can move on to other topics like t-shirt's, badges, and all that other fun stuff that goes along with this great trip.

    Ok here?s how things shape up right now as far as roommates go at the Sheraton:

    Room 1: Prelude, Yango, Darth Dave, Montross
    Room 2: Echoseven, StacyD, Starkiller, Dooks
    Room 3: DarthJager, BobaJay, Lexial, 1 FREE SPACE
    Room 4: Sithatheart (By herself I believe)
    Room 5: Dr.Haggis/Veritate

    Wilshire:
    Room 1: ShatirLavan + 2

    Figueroa:
    Room 1: vaderssmistress

    Now for those that want to move to the Sheraton maybe try and see if you can book there as it?s been a few days and there could be cancellations. Also for those still not sure about going and need time to think about it there is a room for 2 at the Marriott so please let me know if your still looking for a room as this one is available but might fill up but I?ll keep you posted. Also like Lexial posted there is room for 2 at the Wilshire so rooms are covered just let us know if you need a place to hang your head.

    Anyone that wants to get on board please make sure you have your 4 day pass and if you don?t have one please get one. If you are still thinking about this trip you have time but the sooner the better is ideal.

    This trip is going to be great so don?t get yourself stressed about it as it is 7 months away communication is the key so any issues let?s address them ASAP. Fun remember this trip is meant to be fun not stressful ok cool.

    Just a heads up, the Sheraton is a little more than 2 blocks away from the Convention Center. The good news is that it's less than a block away from the Metro station which is one station up from the Convention Center.
    Let me know if there's anything I can answer or track down for you guys now that I'm currently living in Southern California...

    Too true. The Sheraton is 0.76 of a mile, approximately 7 blocks away.

    User ValedaKor did a bunch of recce in June of the LA hotels. The Sheraton info is here:

    We do have a couple of rooms for two if you need one just let us know. Good to see some info on the area which can help us plan the best methods of transportation and it's always good to plan ahead.

    Thanks!

    I'm not worried at all. If he doesn't go, I know I can get some of my 501st buddies from other Garrisons to camp out with me.

    FYI, most of the hotels near the convention center are claiming to be completely booked for that weekend. Unless you have connections with people to room with, it's looking like people will have to start looking further and further away from the downtown core... :(

    I found out that they will not ship out the Badges outside of the States.
    Is this true?

    We will have to pick them up at the Wiil Call booth. I guess one more patry line.[face_dancing]

    thats how it was for C3, it wasn't bad at all to go pick up badges when we got there, i don't think there was even a line or maybe just a couple people

    You definitely want to go as soon as you can to get them if you are arriving the day before the maddness starts. There were rather long lines after it started at the will-call but the day before I think it took about 5 minutes.
