im confused about pre-registering because this is my first convention and the form is confusing ^^; if anyone could help ill greatly appreciate it!

Not exactly sure about what you are confused about but pre-registering is paying for admittance into the con before getting there. The prices are cheaper and the line moves a bit quicker than paying there. The Otakon website has more information (prices, where to send checks to, ect...)

Hopefully this helped a little

I would think you would fill out only one box on the form....I'm guessing the rest are for people registering as a group. I didn't know any better last year and filled out all four :P
I think the rate is up to $40 now. But when in doubt, e-mail and ask!
And yes, the pre-reg line does move faster than the at-door one ^^;

arashi: you print out the form and fill it out right? i think thats what i was confused about hehe ^^;

yup, print it out, fill it out, and mail it with your money.
Although you may be waiting a while for them to mail you confirmation back. They're all backed up. I sent my in mid march, and i'm still waiting...

Check the website. There's a pre-registration form currently posted. It looks like hall costume registration will be done on-site.

Hmmm... Are you pre-registering under adult/child?
Cause I don't think there's any spots left for adult groups for the masquarade, and there's a couple left for child... Wow, I can't believe the slots were filled so fast!!! o_O

has anyone who's pre-registered gotten their postcards back yet? i know that they have a lot of pre-registering to respond to, but i sent mine in on December 28 and i still havent recived the postcard... o_o;

kitty_neko~~~the webby site said they're behind.

04-28-2003, 08:28 PM
Yes, the web site did say that they were way behind in registrations. But when they do get caught up I'm sure that they'll send out the postcards...

As for the masq, the adult slots are full but I think that they leave about ten slots open for reg at the con (for those who are not ready with their whole skit right now) so when you get there I would check to find out where to register because I'm sure that the slots will go fast. I believe that the place you register for the masq is upstairs (3rd floor?) or at least that was where it was last year...

Crap.... there aren't any slots left. I hope I don't miss the cut off again...

freakin ninja turtles..... *grumbles*
