Anthrocon - June 14-17, 2012
« on: August 06, 2011, 12:24:00 pm »
Couldn't resist getting an early start.  :D
Anthrocon returns to the David L. Lawerence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA from June 14th to the 17th, 2012.
The dates for the convention have changed. Please read here: http://www.anthrocon.org/node/7248/anthrocon-announces-dates-2012
Hotel room reservations will probably be available next year in late January or early February.

I'm going back.  :) Anybody else?

I am!  Have an obligation to attend a friend's party at the ToonSeum, and may as well attend the rest of the con too (:

Aloha! I certainly coming back. Interesting theme for 2012. I'm thinking of a possible entry for the A/C masquerade, should be...informative to say the least.

P.S. - From what I remember at AC2011, I believe Uncle Kage mentioned that prices for all types of registrations (Attendee, Sponsor, & Supersponsor) would be going up about another $5-10.
As soon as more registration info. becomes available, I'll post a link.

It's possible that I'll make it to AC. I know I say that every year, but this time around, I actually am just going to be chilling for a few months before going back to school. Theoretically, nothing will stand in my way.

Fingers crossed. :)

I'm not sure what I'll be doing in 2012. I might be in Florida. Since Anthrocon's been the only furry convention I've been to, maybe next year I'll try out Megaplex, especially since I might be in Florida already. But I really want to try and come next year if possible!
Hears hopin!

I'll be doing my best to volunteer in 2012. Still can't believe I've lived here all my life and never knew about it until this past year.

If you are planning on going and want to save yourself a few dollars, then PRE-REGISTER! I hope to be going as a Supersponsor again. :) Supersponsor = Free Luncheon! (But only for those who pre-register as a Suporsponsor.)

A pity there's no charter bus service to AC.

Hm? The Greyhound station is a block away, and Megabus unloads directly under the Convention Center.

I don't see the need or fuss on working as a Staff person for AC. Sure, you get some perks and freebies, but you lose time that you could be spending with friends and enjoying various activities. Being a Staff person is a nice thought, but who wants to waste 1/4 to 1/2 of their con time working when instead they could be having fun?

I plan to go next year, I had to miss this years because of a wedding in my family which was fun. They had a great party, but it was nowhere as awesome as AC!  :)

Now that time has passed, I am getting more and more unsure if I can attend. I signed a lease and will be in FL for all of next year. Since I'm getting on my feet as it were with having a big person life (Omg aaahh growing up! D: ) I don't think it will be in the budget to attend next year. Looking more into closer conventions to FL if any. Might take off a bit from conventions and work on my art skillz.

I wanna go, but I`ll only be 15 and I can`t drive by myself yet. :(
Never give in be yourself, never give into what people say. If you do you'll be nothing but a pawn in the game of society. If someone isn't like you, don't hate, just be happy for them, no matter what.

Peace can only be obtained by the people of the world wanting it and all wanting it the same way. Not one wanting it one way and the other wanting another way. We all have to view peace the same.
