    Hi again.

    As I stated in another thread, I'm from Davenport, but now live in Madison.

    If any of you have any questions, I'll try to answer them. I've only been here a year, but I've gotten to know the place fairly well. :)

    If you do, please PM me or post here.

    Latre! :D

    Hello folks,

    Just wanted to say THANKS in a big way. This convention is for fans, by fans! We do have guests, but you the fan make it what it is. Bring your costumes, your pictures, your questions and we will do our best to make this weekend the best for you!

    The web site has a page you can print that you can send in with your payments.

    We will also be updating soon. Remember if you want to join the light saber classes you must sign up at registration when you enter the convention. You must also sign up for the masquerade and trivia at the same time.

    I really want this to be fun for all the FF members out there. So again, if you have any questions...email me directly!

    See you in Madtown the 15th-the 17th, of November!

    Eric

    Things have worked out so that I can go. But would like to carpool--anyone else want to not using my car since my wife is taking our "good" car to DesMoines that same weekend for a conference she is attending. Found the hotel website the prices are running $80-84 a night that is with 2 double beds. So if we could get 4 people in a room it would be real cheap. Did the filmcon book a block of rooms at a special rate? Madison is about 3 hrs away. Are you all wanting to go all 3 days or just Fri Sat?

    Hi, me again. :)

    Try looking up the prices at the Extended StayAmerica or StudioPlus. I think they are about the same price as you have quoted, if not a couple of dollars cheaper, plus they have a kitchen area (stove, big fridge, glasses, silverware, pots and pans)

    Extended StayAmerica phone #: (608)833-1400

    Studioplus phone #: (608) 833-2121

    They are owned by the same people and are right next door to each other.

    They are also about 5 minutes away from where the convention is being held, I believe. :)

    I have always enjoyed my stays at these places, and I am always surprised at how cheap they are considering all the things you get with the room.

    The Studioplus is alittle more, but the rooms are bigger than the Extended StayAmerica.

    If you have any questions, just ask.

    Latre! :D

    hey y'all I may be able to get my parents to loan me one of the vans if we need that. Also I think 4 to a room is how we should do it because that makes it eaiser and just draw for beds or whatever.

    Oh, I forgot to mention that the Studioplus also has couches to sit on or sleep on. At least the one with the king size bed I had did.

    The Extended StayAmerica only had a recliner.

    Latre! :D

    Or, Dudes, you could be really cheap and put two in a bed, that way everyone is comfortable. Just as long as you're not paired with X-Man, you should be OK (he has a bit of a snoring problem). Ha.

    Just to let you know...YES we have room blocks. The Number to the hotel is...

    608-833-0100

    Let them know you are with the con. I will do my best to find the other hotels. They are near but not real close. Again if anyone needs help let me know. I want people to attend, I am willing to help...

    but you have to let me know.
    *Send me a message if you want!
