    For Conversion 22, is anyone just staying at the hotel? I vaguely remember hearing something about that...

    I plan to stay at the hotel Friday and Saturday nights of Conversion. There will probably be room parties and other after-hour activities to partake in. :)

    Yes. Apparently nude skinny dipping is big with some Con-goers. I prefer the boozin' and carousin' myself.

    Considering I'm just cruising in from Kelowna that weekend, it looks like the hotel the option for me too.

    I just booked my room at the hotel. Now what have the previous conversion parties been like? Dancing elves? Drunken klingons? Games of strip sabacc?

    I have a question about the conversion 22. Do you need to book a hotel room or purchase a membership in order to go?

    Yunafix - You must purchase a membership in order to go, but, depending on whether you want a single day pass, or the entire weekend, there are different levels you can purchase.

    All information is here: www.con-version.org - Membership

    And you can purchase your membership online here: CV22 Online Store

    As for hotel rooms, you don't *have* to book a room if you have somewhere else in the city to stay. Many people who live in Calgary do so, because it's more convenient for costume changes and "crash space" during a long day of Fandom-related events.

    For those who aren't getting rooms, I'll offer my room as daytime crash space while I'm there, and if you like, spare costume storage.
