Convention Co-Chairman Tracey has a brief update for all convention attendees:

We’ll the time for travel is almost upon us so we wanted to have one more update before you all start your journeys.

First, because of the grounding of some planes, be sure to call your carrier to make sure your flight is still on track.

Second, please double check your room reservations at the Crowne Plaza or Holiday Inn. Just this past week we found some errors that could have cause major problems. Call the hotel itself and have them check it for you. The number is 703-683-6000. Also, if your reservation is for example from April 4-5, that means you have a bed the night of the 4th and will check out on the 5th.

Third, registration will be in the Presidential Suite on the 12th floor of the Crowne Plaza. There will be signs directing you to the suite and signs for registration. Registration will open at 3:00 on Thursday and run through 9:00. It will be from 9:00-9:00 on Friday and 9:00-4:00 on Saturday. Please stop there first to pick up all the information and tickets you will need. We will have directions to the Nim’s theater for anyone who wants to drive. For those of you who get delayed arriving on Friday and have tickets for Nim’s, we will have the Nim’s tickets at the theater itself after 1:00 on Friday. Just get on the shuttle and we will have someone in the lobby with your ticket or pass.

Spring has definitely sprung here already and the cherry blossoms will be beautiful by the time you all arrive. The weather forcast in for warm, in the 70s but they are calling for rain. So all of you do your sunshine dance but bring your rain gear in case.

One week from today we will be kicking off our convention with the first showing of Wrath of Gods and counting the minutes until the first Nim’s Island showing. We are up to 196 and may have two more coming. 130 registered for the 2:00 and 39 for the 4:30 and the rest have passes. That place will rock.

Safe trips to all of you.
