    OK, here's the skinny on the Comicon. . .

    The Radisson is already sold out, so even if we wanted to, that's a no-go. I'm looking at other options right now.

    There's an official thread about a regional get-together at the con right here:

    Regional Get-together

    If you guys are seriously interested in going, I'm going to have to ask you to make up your mind VERY soon.

    No pressure or anything. :p

    OK, I have looked EVERYWHERE except for Motel 6 (I can't access their website). The absolute cheapest thing I can find is only 1/2 a mile from the Expo Mart, but it's still $60 a night! So what are we doing?

    EDIT: OK, I found a Motel 6, and it's only 39.99 a night, but it's 23 miles away!

    The Phantom Menace has returned!!!!! :eek:

    Seriously, though, that's three. LMK about the hotels, though, guys, and about the dinner, if you want to attend. They need to RSVP for the dinner ASAP.

    Also, A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: the Comicon updated their guest list and the Pittsburgh chapter found this: Saturday only, Mr. Peter Mayhew will be at the Con! :D

    The Phantom Menace?.Thats Classic?lol

    Anyhow I will be up visiting my family that weekend (convenient eh!) so I will not need a place to stay. So all I really need to know is where the meeting place is gonna be and where you are having dinner an what not.

    Well, as far as dinner, goes, one night will be the regional dinner. That's what I need to know from you guys about. Read about it in the regional thread I posted and get back to me.

    I wanna go! I will look over the info at the site, and then contact a friend of mine to see if they wanna go too. I will let you know, probably tonight...

    Also, would it be possible for you (Ithorian) to post the various costs for the event? i.e, hotel fees, event pass, dinner fee and so forth.

    That way we'll all have a rough idea of what we will be obliged to come up with money-wise...

    Thanks,
    :)

    Hotel Fees: either $39 or $60 per night
    Event Fees: $17.00 per day, or $45 for a 3-day pass
    Regional Dinner: $20 a plate

    Also, don't forget spending and food money. We'll probably car pool, so gas money will be split.

    Cool!

    Now, the big question still needs answered. . .

    WHICH FRIGGIN' HOTEL????????????????

    There's the Motel 6: 23 miles away at $39/night.
    Extendedstay Monroeville: 1/2 mile away at $60/night
    Holiday Inn Monroeville: 1 mile away at $75/night (special Comicon rate)

    It's up to you! Personally, even though they're more expensive, I like the latter two, just because they're closer to the con.

    I think it's ridiculous to drive 23 miles to and from the hotel. So I'll opt for the $60/night shack...

    I also vote for the $60 motel. And i too will be going for sure.

    Who do we need to talk to about tickets? Or do we simply buy them at the door? (Ive always preordered at previous, but I know not all are like that.)

    Wristbands are purchased at the gate.

    I'll wait a day and book 2 rooms for the $60 place on Thursday, just in case anyone else needs a room as well. We'll see about getting a rollaway or something if we have to. If anyone has objection, speak up!

    Also, I need to confirm who will be attending the dinner, so I can let the Pittsburgh crew know for sure how many plates. I will be attending, so you don't have to if you don't want to, but I think it'd be nice if we could go as a group.

    I'll be going to the dinner. And just a reminder, I'll be needing my own hotel room, unless you guys can scare up some girls to go, then I can share with them.

    And we are all looking forward to meeting you guys!! :)

    Ummmm, only one thing though. I don't know if you all have heard this or not, but Mayhew is a no show :( He's doing this think in NYC. At the comicon will be the women that played Aayla Secura and Oola, and the woman that did Taun We's voice. Also the SW comic book artists Joe Corroney and Mark Schultz.
