gonna see how finances go. Did AC this year but i could have done it a lot better.

but now im not sure if i wanna do AC again or try out MFF. both great cons with different appeals.

We'll see how much money i get from selling the chook tin and the bike. might be able to make a decision then.
another 2 cons in my country to attend first so plenty of time to worry about AC later  (:

You should do MFF :D

I might not be making it to AC this year.  My life might be going in a different direction this year.  Sorry everyone!

WONDERFUL NEWS

how many neon pink and black rabbits does it take to screw up a lightbulb factory?

I'm most likely not going to go this year, mostly due to financial and job reasons.

Believe me when I say that that proposal has been conveyed to TWP through the IRC on more than one occasion (a cartoon dinosaur of the crimson variety may or may not have been the party responsible).

I want to go so so badly, it will be my first convention, I only recently became a furry, I am making my own fursuit to, but I can't get to Anthrocon, maybe I can try to find another convention that is closer to my area. Hopefully! x.x

Well, this has recently started to not look like the year for my first AC. My parents decided to surprise my sister and I with a promise of some sort of family vacation thing to celebrate something. So, that's basically going to eat up any time I was considering to take of for AC this year. We're not sure exactly when we're going, or even where. Should have more info on that end soon. However, if I'm doing that, there's just no way I'll be able to do a second con this year.

I was finally able to get everything booked this morning. Now I just have to find a decent camera to take with me.

I hope to see other member of Furtopia there or if possible we could have a meet up. I'll be wearing my Furtopia shirt for sure.

I still gotta book the room but my letter came in the mail, so it's confirmed! A touch nervous but very excited at the same time! Can hardly wait :orraccoon:

That's ok, I'll be in the Westin lines with ya!
Since AC has expanded to more hotels and having broader events and location space, the elevator lines aren't as bad as they used to be I think. Just sometimes after a BIG main ballroom event it gets flooded.

Is the Marriot in cahoots with Anthrocon? Or would you be paying non-convention rates? Could be full due to baseball game??

Last I heard, the convention block had sold out just during the 'early reservation' period for the supersponsors. There were still rooms available at the hotel, but just oustide the convention block, and therefore not at the convention rate. Pretty lame, if you ask me. Why not negotiate for a larger block of the hotel?

I'm booked at DoubleTree, not exactly the Westin but I'm gonna be at Anthrocon! Courtyard was sold out and the Westin only had King Suites available last I checked.

Right, I got no reason to complain TWP. Three blocks is hardly a walk at all :orraccoon:
