    According to the Hyatt reservation person, going through this Convention group was the only way to get the convention "rate". I assumed that the rate was something better than normal, if only a little bit better. We'll see what's what this week. Hey! Maybe they'll even announce it officially this week.....well, I'm an optimist.

    Man, Indy was so perfect last time and I had one of the best times in my entire life at Celebration II. This is going to be AMAZING! :D

    It's so close to where I live (Chicago) so it's just a short, relaxing drive!


    Sex-X, you rock for this info! :D (Well, and for those awesome Preview Clonetroopers you sent me! :D



    Oh man, dude, you just made my night when I read this post! :D

    Hey Seb, if I'm involved in the party this go around you can bet your bottom dollar that it will be much better. I started having ideas after it was over last year.

    Music over the P.A., Mic for announcements, plus the last section opened up just to name a few.

    Oh yeah, Skyla, you will definately be in on it again, you kicked arse last time. I have been in contact already to make sure that those loose ends that we had last time are taken care of, as well as ALOT more space.

    You know as we get a bit closer to this event we probably should create a forum specific to it. That way we can keep all the relevant threads in one place.

    Sorry to bother again but my parents REALLY need info on C3 so they can make reservations and see how much it costs and all that stuff. If anyone is SURE it's in Indy and that everything is set in stone please e-mail me at EnelyaAnarion@aol.com.

    Thanks

    LadyNaberrie, no one official has confirmed the place yet. Some on the "inside" have said that it will be in Indy, April 22-24, 2005. As to reservations, some hotels will not take reservations more than a year from when you want to stay. Someone on the SW boards said that he got a room at the Westin, but they wouldn't let ME reserve one until April 21, 2004. I've been trying to get ahold of a number that the Hyatt gave me to reserve a room there....but I've not had any luck.

    Wait a bit for the official confirmation. It's SUPPOSED to be Indy, but anything can happen. The confirmation is supposed to happen this month....but we've all heard THAT one before!

    Well if this is true I am less than excited (as I have said in other forums) I have no problem with Indy. In fact it is high on the list of somewhere I might want to live. I just don't think C2 was handled very well. The Wizards people were generally very rude (hopefully this won't be a problem this time), the only reason I was able to see even some of the presentations was because of the kindness of strangers, and I thought the convention hall was very cramped. Granted these are all things that can be remedied. Especially the last one since everyone keeps saying they only used half the space. I guess more than anything I was hoping for an excuse to visit someplace I hadn't been before. :p

    Its not Wizards this time.

    It'll be the same team doing GenCon 2004, so seeing how they handle that should be a clue to how C3 should go.

    Of course the advantage for us at C3 is that the team should also have learned where they went wrong during GenCon and should have fixes in place.

    Speaking as a member of a concom though, I will say that no matter how hard you work, there will always be something to mess up your plans.

    The mark of a good concom is how quickly they resolve the issue and how they treat the membership because of it.

    Looking forward to the GenCon reports next year.

    They actually started having GenCon here in Indy this year. It went very well, with the exception of presold badges and registration. Which they now have a year and a half and another GenCon to straighten that out.

    From what I have heard, it looks to be much more organized and much roomier this time around.

    I am not sure if the Westin is taking reservations or not yet.

    ...and everyone keep your Friday night free, it should be a good one!!!
