Well I was just checking out the Nekocon website when I noticed the Important Annoucement notice on the top of the website.
It states:
Currently over 1,200 people have pre-registered for Nekocon 6. Due to this incredible amount and city fire-safety codes we at Nekocon will be enforcing an attendance cap at the convention of 1,600 people. We apologize for any inconvenience to anybody's plans to attend our event. We are already planning to move to a larger facility for year Seven which will give everyone the elbowroom they need.

I hope there isn't that many more people going.....
Me and my group never pre-reg and it would really suck to drive all the way to the con and find that its full.
I guess this is why its a good idea to pre-reg =/

Damn you Lizzy.......you beat me to it....*glares* LOL ^_^

I thought the great Lizzy knows all.......
Registration will probably open most likey around 8ish or something....maybe....as for updating about the website about it....they probably wait until the day before the con to announce when registration opens...>_>

Ok can someone tell me how small the hotel is?

This is my first time going there.

They may do registration thursday night or that's what they are going to attempt to do. That's what it says on my postcard from them.

I'm glad I pre-reg. for once at Nekocon, which will be the 3rd time I'm going to this con. I think myself and Lionel are the only ones coming from CA (representin'!! :skidude2: ) I hope he pre-reg. too.. :thumbsup: I'll be there TH morning, and hope to get my pre-reg. stuff taken care of that night. :)

The hotel is kinda small, since the lobby-level is where most of the stuff happens, and that one hallway that leads to the dealers' room can get really shtuffed and jammed pretty easily, so be ready for that.. (Cosplayers, take care not to damage your costumes or props when going through that hallway..) If need be, there's a doorway by the artist alley that leads outside to the pool area, and you can cut across there to go back inside close to the dealers' room.

Well hopefully it will all go well and we wont have to worry about not getting in

10-29-2003, 05:39 PM
Ugh.. I'm glad I pre-regged, but most to all of my friends didn't >_< And we're making a 6 hour drive to the con...

I wonder what they'll do about the people already in hotel rooms! We've got our rooms booked and ready, but what happens if a few of my friens don't make it? Will they wander the con aimlessly and *not* go into the dealers room, dance, etc?

I wonder how they plan on handling that.

I also wish they'd update with a bit more info.. (ie : guest list, cosplay rules, etc)... it's cutting it pretty close considering it's in a little over a week.

Meep. But yeah, on a better note... it's in a WEEK! ^_^_^_^_^_^

Same here <slams head against wall for not pre-registering this year>

I preregged with a group this year. I'm kind of glad that I did, but then now I am kinda worried. My friends did not prereg like a lot of others, and frankly they are a bit worried about it.

On that note, I need to ask a question about the situation. A friend of mine has a panel at Nekocon, but he did not prereg. Does that create a problem if he cannot get a badge, or is his badge already covered? He's in a bit of a panic.

Maxima: Well i guess if it comes to the point that he doesnt get a badge he should let them know he has a panal, and if they are all kinda enough, they should understand and help him out

10-30-2003, 07:09 PM
Well your best bet is to be in line very early in the morning if your friends aren't pre-registered..I'll feel bad for those who will have to stand and wait outside in the cold weather..Good luck Tora's group..see ya then ^_^

noooo i don't want rain T_T

hmm i have a group of friends that are coming from Canada and i think they haven't pre-reg yet and most of them are in my skit, so i will really suck if they can't get in.

Buy their passes if they don't get there soon enough, and have them pay you back :)

I heard it was only one per person.... but i may be wrong. I have to check on that to see if i can get badges for my friends too.

I just checked the site and this is what it said...

--At-Door Registration opens at 9AM on FRIDAY
--350 Full Weekend Passes are First Come, First Serve.
--One pass per person, no buying extra 2-20+ passes for people not standing next to you in line.

I just have to get there early and tell all my friends to do the same...sucks for me, lol

11-02-2003, 08:42 AM
damn, yeah i've been telling all my people to get there early too, most of us are getting there thursday night, just hopeing the rest gets there early friday morning!

11-02-2003, 09:27 AM
dang, all of you are getting there early. I have to miss most of friday due to school.

Hmm, depending on traffic I wont be there till mid morning friday, maybe later, Im so thankful I pre-registered. I wish much luck to all those who didnt too, I hope you get in!

11-04-2003, 10:24 AM
*huggles Nixxer* You drive careful and I will see you on Friday.

I will be there on Thursday night too, so I hope to be able to meet and greet and maybe hang out with some cosplay.com peeps. But knowing me, I will be working on costumes probably Thursday night. :/

11-04-2003, 10:41 AM
*huggles* Hai kas, I will be careful, I'll be drinking coffee most of the way so I dont get tired, I just have to remember not to forget anything....like directions to get there :thumbsup: which reminds me, I should get started packing, Im so eager, I just dont want to wait. You drive careful too, you have further to go then me and watch out for all those crazy VA drivers.

Im kinda nervous about the whole hotel situation as far as how many people are allowed in the room n such. I thought that i heard someone talking about them only allowing up to 4 people per room.. and i have at least 6 ..

i honestly dont think that the hotel is gonna check every single room cuz im sure that there are plenty of people going to the con with more than 4 people in their room..

11-06-2003, 04:38 AM
if the hotel only gives you 4 key cards comeback an hour later and say you lost the keycard(s). They should give you another.
