    AFO is held at this location and while its not a big con, it's decent enough.

    If they're having this in the area I think they are, you'll have plenty of space.

    I believe there will be free wifi available at the hotel. We're actually planning on broadcasting the party live on the internet. The convention center should have wifi available for $12.95 or something like that.

    I saw something on the OCCC website several months ago about wifi for like $25/day. A bit pricey. May be different for each show though so who knows.

    Hmm, that is a bit pricey. might just use it on the day most of the EU stuff happens to get my biggest bang for my buck and rely on cheaper hotel access (or commandeering one of Dingo's laptops ;) ) the rest of the time.

    According to [link=http://www.occc.net/pdf/MM_WIFI.pdf]this[/link], it's $12.95 per day or $4.95 per hour.

    I'm staying right there at that resort, but I think I'll leave my laptop at home this time around. I just don't feel I'll have enough time for it, theres alot to do. So I plan on keeping active through out the whole show, bad enough having the phone with me.

    I totally agree here. Don't forget to check out my photo tips. This was one of them: http://bit.ly/amsomS

    Also, I asked this in the other thread, but didn't see an answer yet so I figured I'd ask here.

    Do you guys know exactly where on the resort the party is? I was looking at the map and the Wyndham is pretty big and spread out. If we knew the name of the room it was in, that would help so we're not wandering around too long looking for it.

    I have a feeling that might depend on our final numbers. Dajuan will be able to answer it better.

    Quest, they'll be at the table again. This time completely different login though so we don't have any repeats of last time.

    Sorry, I saw the question just haven't had a chance to look it up. I will look in a bit after I've sorted all the emails from last night and this morning.

    We're in the Palms Ballroom. I can't find an over all hotel floor plan yet to know exactly where it is. Stay tuned.

    This is what I got back in response to where in the complex are we. The convention center refers to the Wyndham's con center:
    [blockquote]The convention center is in the main building. Entrance for your room is located on the Sandlake Road side of the Resort by the large carport entrance.[/blockquote]
    I'll see if I can find a way to post the PDF that was sent to me/

    I'll be a giant dorktastic and (if I remember) will take some pictures of the locale for you guys. I think AFO does include a floor plan in their program, so I'll try to find a way to get it posted so it'll be easy to find.

    It's gonna be fun standing around a buncha weeaboos and thinking that in 5 days from the time I'll be there, the place will be full of SW people. :B

    Can anyone who takes pictures at the party send me copies of them? If you know who they are pictures of sending names along with them would be great. I'd like to put together a photo album of the event if possible.
