    Just to clarify about the hotel, it comes down to this- $86 gets you in the room for however long you need it. it's not per night, it's just a flat amount. pm me if there are further questions.

    thats why were taking jenns car... :D

    i think your payment plan for the room hit a snag...

    HOLIDAY INN ON THE BAY
    $86 per person for entire stay ($139 a night w/out 9% tax)
    -darksidersteve, idiots array, jenn, jupitertronic, kirana t, mrbunny666, sideshow212.



    JT and kirana will be there for 4 nights, mrbunny666 will be there for 3 nights, and darksidersteve, idiots array, jenn and myself will only be there for 2...

    shouldn't it be that the people staying more nights should pay more? i'm not trying to throw anyone under the bus, but jenn and i can get our own room for less than 86$ a night...

    as i figure it...

    plus tax the room is 151.52 per night...

    • the first night, two people will be there:
      divided by 2 = 75.80$ per person


    • the second night 3 people will be there:
      divided by 3 = 50.55$ per person


    • the third and fourth nights, all 7 people will be there:
      divided by 7 = 21.70$ per person x2 nights


    so, by this, everyones total cost is...
    1. jupitertronic: total = 169.75$

    2. kirana: total = 169.75$

    3. bunny666: total = 93.95$

    4. IA: total= 43.40$

    5. sideshow: total= 43.40$

    6. jenn: total= 43.40$

    7. steve: total= 43.40$

    the way i figure, this is the most fair way to split the room by usage...
    so blackfeather, does this sound ok to you?



    also: what about parking? i know most of us will be within walking distance, but for those staying at sistines, how are you guys planning on getting to the con center? are there places to park around there?

    i was actually going to post that exact same info after i ran the numbers again. gotta love spreadsheets. that, or a psychic link between us has been established.:D

    oh, and i have to figure out about collecting for the hotel room... i'd like to start collecting at the meeting, and from then on till we all leave. think i could do this w/out being burned in effigy? [face_blush] ;)

    sistine faxed me some info about parking, and i have an idea or two about possibly parking in the holiday inn parking lot and walking w/the hotel group together... i'll post more details as i collect them.

    UPDATE

    i'm editing the latest mission report to reflect the useage-based hotel info as listed earlier. i'll also be printing up copies of the report, maps of the convention center and the general vicinity (with special attention to where our hotels are in relation to each other, and where snacks can be procurred)(i hope). if possible i'd like to start collecting money for the hotel stay at the meeting. PLEASE BE AWARE that this is only to start, collection will continue till... well, two years after we get back from comic-con. :D

    if anyone has a problem with the info listed, talk to me here, pm, phone, or anlashok courier.

    Quick question for anyone who might have an answer....

    I'll be staying at Sistine's Thrus night and I assume traveling to the Con in whatever fashion Void will be using. This will lead to me taking all my stuff with me since I will staying at the Inn that night and probably wont be visiting Sistine's again. I cant really leave my make-up in the car (if we take a car) as it will melt due to the heat. So is there any where in the Con I would able to safely store it or maybe can swing by the hotel Fri morning and leave it there?

    Steve, I am not going to Con Friday night and could bring your make-up down to you that evening if you are un-able to get into the hotel that day... FYI

    lessee... sistine & moe are both sith, feldman sounds sith-ish, mick's an emperor's hand, moe's a jedi & carol's a rebel, and i'm a dark-side merc.

    ::hops over to sith side::

    yeah, seems like the rebels are sure outnumbered, right guys? [face_devil]

    Moe's a darksider actually but I'm not worried....I've bested most of them listed in saber combat.

    And a word of warning.... Don't "mess" with Ion Control (again, edited for content :) )



    Steve...

    The 2nd one should be on Breakbeat's site. Otherwise I put out a collection of Star Wars Fan made music to anybody who give's me 1 blank 700 meg CD (for MP3 format) or 6 700 meg CD's for audio format. I'll have it for the drive up.

    Otherwise you might get worse than cat toys thrown at you. ;) [face_mischief] [face_devil] I am planning on bringing ear plugs with me, though, so snorers might be pretty safe from flying objects. :)
