    Bag Check at the convention center I just got an email from the Admin at the LA Convention Center. They DO have bag check at LACC in the Business Center, which is right next to the Concourse Hall. Each bag checked will cost $5, and you can leave your bag there from 9 am to 5 pm.

    Nope -- still waiting on a call-back from the cc event planner.

    That's good to know since there aren't any lockers!

    Just heard back from the events coordinator at the cc -- she says that there is going to be a myriad of shipping outlets, including UPS, and the business center will be open throughout the convention, including Monday (Memorial Day). I stressed that that day was a holiday, and she reiterated that they would be open.

    There is a USPS outlet at the Macy's Plaza. It, though, will likely be closed Sunday and Monday. :D

    Thanks again Val. That should solve some shipping problems over the weekend and holiday.

    The subway is fine. Certainly not as many riders as NYC, for instance. Stations are clean and kept up.

    Val, are you still in contact with Adrian from Gen con? There seems to be a few people curious about how the Hasbro booth will be set up? Can you see if she knows anything about this. I know I will be heading right there as soon as the doors open.

    Thanks!

    Do you think that Hasbro themselves will be the selling the exclusive figures vs. the CIV store? I didn't even think about that since at CIII they were in the store.

    Just wondering, how many days will Carrie Fisher and Lucas be attending?

    No one's confirmed that George Lucas is attending...

    Carrie is signing autographs on Friday and Saturday. We don't know yet if she has plans to be there on any other days.

    I was just looking at the registration for the Carrie Fisher event and the slots for the C4 store. It says registration ended on the 30th. Does that mean everything is sold out and cannot be bought online?

    I really wanted to get the C4 store slot and carrie fisher ticket. I guess I'm out of luck?? :_|

    The April 30th cut-off was for getting your badges in the mail; after that, you will just need to go to Will Call to pick up your badge. Once you register to attend, you can sign up for the other activities.

    So, are you saying that I can still get store slots/fisher tickets at the con?

    What I'm saying is, even though there was a cut-off for the store slots/carrie fisher event, am I still able to get tickets for them later? Or am I out of luck?

    Oh, I see what you're saying. Just checked the GenCon site.

    Looks like reservations are closed for both Carrie Fisher and store reservations; sorry I mislead you.

    *sigh*

    Oh well, looks like I'll have to go with something else then. :(

    I'm sure getting her autograph will make up for it though. :)
