    Ok, got the ticket!!! I had 6 browsers going, 3 were IE, 3 were Mozilla, and the mozilla browser, just 1 of them finally got thru!

    When I got the hotel code, there was a phone number listed so I called to reserve it. I got WV a room in the Marriott. Now AFTER we all get rooms in the Marriott, we can call back later to request a specific floor, from what the lady on the phone told me. So if we can all get into that same hotel, we can call back later to try and get closer.

    Web based signups are ***CENSORED***. And thats all I have to say about that!

    Good luck all!!!!!!!

    May the Force be with you!

    The only place through this whole process where they even mention the fan club is at the initial registration through GenCon. Just the part where it's asks "Are you in the fan club?" I didn't see any other mention of it.

    You have to select one badge, then click add to cart. Then you can check out. A lot of people are selecting the badge then clicking checkout, which doesn't work.

    I'm trying to register Tina and it keeps taking me back to the page where I typed in her info. Does that mean that it didn't work or is it just giving me the oppertunity to register more people?

    That's what I did. But I feel as the gods are against me today.

    Sal, Stacie, if any of you get through, and get a hotel reservation code, CALL ME! I'll let you use my card even, just so we can get the rooms.

    I still have my fingers crossed for you guys! Get those rooms!

    *Hopes*

    *Passes around the Maalox*....your gonna need it.


    EDIT: As I posted above, it was a Mozilla browser that got me all the way thru. I was using Firefox. Dunno if that made a difference.

    It looks like Stacie has gotten through. We think. We're trying to get through reserving one hotel room, and if it works, we'll go back for more.

    Em thinks she got through to ordering her ticket. Okay, she got her code and is going to the hotel site.

    What a cluster... this has been. She's still trying to order the room. Doesn't look like she had much of a choice either. Looks like our room, if she gets the reservation in time, will hold up to 4 people. It costs $151 per night. Oh and it is the Marriott.

    I'll let you know her progress as I find out.

    So we don't need to book one for you two then? Cause Zero, Tina and I are booking rooms now. We have ours booked and we're working on the guys room. Then it's onto the girls room and whatever else, so....yeah, who still needs a room?

    ok, Stcie got through, and has so far gotten one room. Sal said Em has gotten through, and got her and Sal's room. I just got through checkout, and going after rooms. Looks like we're almost home free.

    I'm so happy to hear you guys are getting rooms!! And as a bonus, in the same hotel :) Remember we can all agree and call back to ask for certain floor(s)

    You breathe a HUGE sigh of relief when you get a room......HUGE....

    As someone else has put it...

    We arent' even in Indy yet and are already in lines...

    Just glad I got a room. Still need my badge, but that wasn't the priority. At least I can breath a small sigh of relief.

    Now, anyone want to guess how long it takes for the rooms to sell out. I don't think they'll last 24 hours.

    I have a guess!!

    I bet they're all gone by...5 minutes ago!

    Yep, that's right, looks like the Marriott is completely booked. We got rooms for us, the guys, the girls and Sal already booked his. Zero tried to get a room for Terry but they were gone when he went to book it. Actually it looks like they're all booked (the ones that are connected anyway).

    So, what do I win?

    There are still rooms at the Canterbury, Crowne Plaza and the Courtyard (all are pretty close) as well as some of the farther hotels.

    Glad you guys got rooms!

    It is true. I tried to book Terrys room, and the Marriot wasn't an option anymore. I was able to book a room for him and Ginger at teh Courtyard Marriot, which I was informed was right next door to the Marriot. So, at least he is close by. And on the bright side, if anything opens up, he may be able to jump to the Marriot.(Yeah, it's unlikely, but who knows. it could happen.)
