    I will be there, but no one will see me until the auction, where they'll be sick of me by the time it's over, and then I'll just be there and no one will see me again...maybe.

    My family enjoyed DCC I and we were not in town for DCCII, so we'll do our best to attend DCC III.

    Jason, if you get your droid operating or if you just want to display it with the MSR2 and help with the table for a couple hours, I might be able to get you an exhibitor pass. I'm currently in negotiations for passes and the more we have for the droid area the more I can get.

    ***OFFICIAL DCC News from the RMFF August Meeting***

    Planning meetings for next year started the week after the con. The exhibit floor will be bigger. The panel rooms will be bigger. We are working on ways to make everything run more efficiently. Panel videos will start going up on YouTube next week.

    That would be awesome! Do you know someone who would be able to help me out with the RC-10T (1980's) RC car (Witch is the chassis of the mouse droid)? I do have newer components like motor and speed control and some other parts but I just don't know how to put them all together?

    Jason, be patient, we're trying to set up a droid build day to help with all of that. September seems to be a really busy time for everyone, though. We do have an event on Sat Oct 5th for the NoCo Mini Maker Faire in Loveland. If you're interested let me know. It's sponsored by Make Magazine, the premier mag of electronic hobbyists. Believe me, if you bring your stuff I'm sure someone at the faire can help get you in the right direction. I sent an email to the MSR2 with details, let me know if I need to resend it to you.

    I hope I didn't overlook any information about discount tickets or is there a discount?

    Not that I've seen. The only "discount" that I've seen is if you volunteer in the SW groups' area "The Star Wars Experience" or whatever we're calling it this year, you stand a good chance of getting a pass. That's my plan.

    Any updates on that @SITH__CHICK or @darth_hair?

    Got some news on DCC!
    Booth space:
    Our space layout didn’t really work where we were so… They moved us and gave us more space. Instead of being confined to the inside of our 25X80 booth space right behind the kids corral, we are now further in the hall between the Movie Cars and the Umbrella Corp with a 30X80 booth space that our people can bleed into the isles a little since we won’t be near any vendors. Droids will have room to roll and we will have a more comfortable space for lines. Since our space has changed a little we will need to revamp the rough floor plan. Here is a link to the rough layout we have come up with:

    Passes:
    Last year we got few passes per group for free and after some trading and loaning it got a bit chaotic. This year, passes will cost $25 each and to get that price you must commit to at least 2 hours at the booth. This will make each person accountable for their badge and allow each person to enjoy the con and be able to get away from the booth. They cannot be traded or loaned. They will be for official members only of the Rebel Legion, Mando Mercs, R2 Builders, Far Away Creations, 501st and RMFF. I’ll need a head count for each group to start getting an idea of how many we will need total.
    Kim (sithchick) will be handling the schedule for all groups with a Google Doc.

    Load in:
    We can load in on Thursday between 5-9 PM and return on Friday at 8-10 AM. Load out will be Sunday after the con. I have been told numerous times, we must be able to set everything up in the 6 hours we have been given.

    I’ll post more details as I get them.

    Man, this year is going to be tough. Abby has a dance residle on the Saturday Afternoon of the con. Also she has to go to the pre dance residle thing on Friday. So it is looking like we will be able to get there Saturday evening for the Auction and be there on Sunday. I am really bummed out as I want to go to DCC but I think it is more important that I support Abby and her dance. Just really bad timing this year.
