    I was kind of hoping for a show of hands on the idea of attending Comic-Con this year (July 26th-29th). I know with C4 being in the same year and only a few months before hand, many people have to choose one over the other. I've had so much fun my last two years at comic-con I'd hate not to go, but then again if I don't know many people attending this year a lot of the fun would be gone anyway.

    I'm just trying to make a decision within the next few weeks since housing opens up for the convention on Feb 6th!

    Kelsey and I will be there... though we'll probably be stuck working for a lot of the time.

    Going to CC depends on my financial situation (i.e. a job or not), so I'd like to go, having gone since 2002.

    I'm pretty sure I'm going to Comic-con. How long just depends on how many days off I can get.

    I hope to go, but am not sure yet. I still haven't decided whether C4 is worth it to me or not, so I'm very undecided at this point. I know Comiccon is fun tho, so I would like to be there again.

    Hum, there seems to be fair amount of interest. So have we looked into securing rooms for the SFFF? (Earlier the better I say, as rooms can usually be canceled, but once they are gone they are gone!) I can probably only do this if I can split the cost with roomies. I'd like to stay near the con, but I know those are usually a higher price than most can afford. I can't even remember if registration will only let me sign up for one of those rooms or 2? I certainly don't think we should defer all of this on Robert - I just don't know what's going on or what to do :(

    My homeboy from work wants to roll too so we'll be staying with our friend in San Diego from Genentech's SD plant. More cash to spend on useless crap!

    It's really hard for me to predict at this point. I had an absolutely fabulous time at the con last year and would love to go again, but as kay_dee says, it may well come down to a choice between C4 and SDCC this year due to vacation time and finances.

    Just to put this out there: Comic-Con is every year, but the next Celebration won't probably happen until 2010 for "Empire's" 30th Anniversary.

    Or whenever Lucasfilm decides to market something else to generate excitement for the franchise. Afterall, Star Wars is forever...

    Oh crap, thanks for the reminder. You know, I may get a room but since I don't have anyone to share it with I have a feeling I'll have to let it go this year and stay wherever the rest of our Fan Force is staying. Do we have rooms reserved yet? I know you guys were looking at stuff during the meeting but I didn't get an idea if anyone was actually going to put a reservation down. It would be good to get it taken care of soon in any case.

    how much is the cost of the room for the duration of the convention kathy? looks like i'll have to get the air separately and hopefully catch the right time when southwest starts selling airline tickets for july. i'm willing to split the bill with anyone who is gettign a hotel.

    Different hotels are different prices. I *think* the fan force stayed at Hawthorne Suites last year and drove to the convention? Right now that shows up at 161 a night for a room for 4 people.

    About half the convention hotels offered through housing tend to be in walking distance from the con. But it is a scramble to get a close hotel in when they go on sale. Omni is 222 a night for 4 people, Horton Grand is 195 for 3 people - etc.

    if anyone is getting a hotel i'd be willing to share the cost of a room.so long as its not cramped up. and if the cost per person will be less than $500 for the days of the con. if anyone has a spot open let me know.otherwise i'll book this motel 6 at 2nd St.

    Kathy, as far as I know, nobody has made a reservation for Comic-con yet. I think we have all been distracted by C4. I remember Robert looking awhile ago and we were surprised at how much prices had changed from last year. But I suppose we should do it soon since those not getting into the close by hotels will have to look at other options after tommorow.

    Well, we can always look today for a hotel for the group. I think the longer we wait, the higher the prices will get because less and less is available.

    Reservations can usually be canceled without charges. So I don't understand why we should wait around. Do we have a rough head count? Do we need 2 or 3 rooms?

    *EDIT*

    I was able to get one room at the Horton Grand - 3 blocks away. Wed-Sun $195 a night 2 queen beds. Should fit up to 4 people. If there are people who want to be walking distance from the convention and would be up to sharing let me know. Otherwise I'll cancel it and go in on a block of rooms farther away from the con with the rest of the Fan Force group.
