Anyone uncnfortable about sharing with guys (or minors who's parents just won't let you) but still want to share w/ someone, post here. Also, we need someone over 18 to book the room. Or if you're already sharing, and everyone happens to be female and wouldn't mind having more people, say so here.

Yay^_^ Hopefully someone is 18....lol

I could if my dad lets me, I'm not sure if he booked already though. But you never know, he might back out at the last minute and make me ride down & share a room with someone else (Kayla?) so we'll see.

Err, I'd love to share a room with you guys...coz the other group seems quite shaky in letting me in. They already have like a ga-ba-zillion people sharing the rooms...xD So just please let me know what happens because I'm a little confused on my room situation...x.x

Even though we don't have many people yet, but I'm thinking about staying at Whyndam since it's only $137 a night for up to 4 people (legally anyway ;)) And we're paying for 3 nights (thurs, fri and sat.) So who knows if they're in yet?

Um...I'm 18. ^_^ Wait actually I'm 19...i keep forgettin that ^_~

Yeah, I'm having issues and not sure if any of my friends can come cus of internships and overseas travels, so I would be interested in sharing a room
That's not a definate though.

I'm only 16 tho, and probably in need of otakon friends *sniff*

Tsuki_Hime
03-01-2004, 07:49 PM
*huggles fushigi-chan* I'm 16 and in need of Otakon buddies too! xD

Anyways, I'm in and maybe my buddy, but i reallllly suggest getting more people to share the room...I dont mind sleeping on the floor. ^^;; Driving all the way to Maryland from Georgia will definitely eat my wallet w/gas prices x.x So, I really need help chopping down the prices...^^;;

fushigi-chan
03-01-2004, 09:00 PM
hehe, yay!!! *huggles back*

yeah, my friend julianna might be able to come
and possibly my sis...but as i said, she may have an internship *she's 20*

but yeah, i'd say there's a fairly good possibility of me being able to stay in the room =)

Tsuki_Hime
03-03-2004, 05:22 PM
It looks like not many people are interested in sharing a room... o.o;;;
I can only afford to stay in the room if at least 6 people are gonna share...just driving up to Maryland will be the majority of my expenses (sadly enough ;_; ). I can't guarantee that i'll be in unless I find out that there is at least 6 ppl...so yea...^^;;

Alanna-chan
03-04-2004, 06:20 AM
I think there is more than 6 if everyone who said they might can.

Hey. I dunno what I'm doing for Otakon yet because I'm still a mess. But, if I were to be able to join with you guys, somehow, when would I have to know by? I'd love to room with other people. I just have a problem of how I'm getting there. But, it'd be me and my best friend. We're both 17, and we'll be 18 by Otakon, just so you know ^^;;

Anyways, just trying to find other options. Thanks.

Alanna-chan
03-05-2004, 04:21 PM
By the time we book the room, which is when we have enough (hoping for atleast 10 people)

How many people wanna go thursday night too? Will it be better for most of you if we just stay friday and saturday?

OdangoAtama
03-10-2004, 11:04 AM
I've never gone to otakon thursday night...I normally just do for katsucon since its farther away but hey if we go thursday...me no have to drive all early in the mornin...*hates driving in the city* Plus if people need rides...I should *crosses fingers* have a car by then ^.^
Momo-You know i can give you a ride ms. living all 5 mins away from me ^_^

fushigi-chan
03-10-2004, 07:55 PM
I'm not sure about rides/how I'm getting there, but I'll prolly show up sometime friday morning...
maybe my dad will drive?

Alanna-chan
03-11-2004, 04:36 AM
If we get it for thursday night...
Pro:
you can pick up registration on thursday and don't have to wait in line during the con and miss out on being freaks/ourselves ^_^
con (*does drum thing*) :
It will cost more.

OdangoAtama
03-11-2004, 11:53 PM
that's why we need more people in our room ^_^ The more we have...the less it'll be

Alanna-chan
03-12-2004, 04:47 AM
Yeah but the extra day could be what will keep others from wanting to

fushigi-chan
03-12-2004, 09:18 AM
Ok, well I just checked expedia.com and it said that thursday night it was $149
friday and saturday it's $169
this is the room rate for 1 adult and 1 child
and it says they only have 1 available room for those dates

so if we agreed upon staying thursday night, it would be roughly $490 for the whole weekend
and if we stayed only friday and saturday, it'd be about $340

Sooo, we have about 8 people so far,
so if we stay for thursday, everyone would chip in $60 and if we don't, it's be about $42
and none of these prices include tax, or other random fees
But this is to give everyone an idea

Anyways, we should probably decide really soon since as I said, expedia says there's only 1 room left

fushigi-chan
03-12-2004, 09:30 AM
Also, there's 1 room available at the Radisson Plaza for $164 a night, so basically the same price range
But that price is if you book early on expedia *it's 25% discount*

So yeah, those are the only two hotels that I've found which have rooms available for all the nights and are relatively cheap

and according to the map that's on the otakon website, it's right next to Wyndham, so it's not like a difference in location and the place looks a lot nicer =b
so just a suggestion ^_~

Tsuki_Hime
03-12-2004, 09:05 PM
fri. and sat. would be good for me...I need to get it as cheap as possible.
It doesn't seem like there's a lot of people up for this, but I'm hearing about 8 ppl? Are they definite? o.0

Alanna-chan
03-13-2004, 03:53 AM
I already mentioned the Wyndham since it's $137 a night for up to 4 people and there are still rooms available.

fushigi-chan
03-13-2004, 11:47 AM
I already mentioned the Wyndham since it's $137 a night for up to 4 people and there are still rooms available.

Yeah, I saw you mentioned that before, but when I checked it said it was more expensive...so I was a little confused by that, but who knows

Anyways, Tsuki, I don't think there's a definate 8 people...Some people are still saying they're not sure
Well I also know that my sister might only be there for saturday night, and my friend Julianna doesn't know yet, even though she's fairly confident she'll be able to...
anyways, I know I can come, and I might be able to get my dad to chip in some money towards the room =b

Alanna-chan
03-13-2004, 05:26 PM
The Otakon rate probably just wasn't counted in.

Just got a message from Rinoa1022, asking if she and a friend could stay with us, but the thing is he's a guy, but he's gay. I don't see any problem with this, but does anyone object?

Alanna-chan
03-14-2004, 05:59 AM
Sorry for all the posts ^^;; but should we try getting a room now before it's sold out? Just need to figure out wether 3 or 2 nights would be better, but we can deal with paying and such at the con (or once we have a solid list of who's staying w/ us)

I don't see any problems with that. I actually don't care if there are guys in there. And I just need to stay for 2 days, but if others need it for 3 days, I just say book it for 3 days. Those who need an extra day can pay their share at the con. We just gotta break out our ol' algebra skills, that's all. xD

Rinoa1022
03-14-2004, 12:38 PM
yayyyyyy!! yay for no problems!! id prefer to stay for 3 nights but if everyone else wants 2 thatd be fine. OoO and how many are in a room? the normal amount or is it a super sleepover :)

fushigi-chan
03-14-2004, 09:55 PM
I have no problem with gay or straight guys =b so everyone's welcome!! lol

I think booking for 3 nights is fine because I might come thursday, or if I do come friday morning, I need someplace to drop off all my crap =b
but if we find that closer to the con most people can't be there on thursday, we can cancel it

But I definately think we need to book really soon or else it'll be sold out, so I think we're all agreed on Wyndham

Well whoever actually reserves the room w/ their credit card or whatever, will most likely have to be there on thursday to check in...
which could present a problem

Am i reserving the room?? Cause I'm 19 but am i the only one?? Oh and guys is no problem either ^_^ So just give me all the info for the room and I'll take care of the reservation crap...cause i am one of the ones who wants to go down on thursday that' no prob either ^^

Rinoa1022

Gunner Rikku
03-16-2004, 02:24 PM
Ah Just wondered. ^_^ I didn't know for sure how everyone felt on it. I got a bit confused between the posts and such. I also have another friend that says he'd like to have a back up room, but it's an unsure thing if he's joining us or not. And actually, I dunno rather or not I'm a definate for 2 or 3 days. I'll have to check with my ride whenever he's planning to get there.

03-17-2004, 03:32 AM
Just told my dad about this (twisting the truth a little.) I said it was with someone I knew from school, her mother is gonna be at the con the entire time (she seriously is, but key word is "con" not "room") and that it was all female (it was originally, right?), and he says ok, he just has to speak to her mother for a couple minutes >< so I need someone with a motherly voice who doesn't mind calling MD, and pretend to be her. I might just get my friend to speak to him, but if that isn't enough, she can say her mother will call him withing the next two weeks or something.

and its 137 a night, check-in is probably at 3pm and check out at 11am, but thats just my guess due to other hotels. I think were boking it for thurs-fri-and saterday night but it depends on who wants to stay thursday night. and the room will be full hehe so price shouldnt be bad :)

So what about the people who are only planning to stay in the room from Friday-Saturday night? Do they just pay for those nights are does everyone pay for the three nights rather theyre staying for the three days or not? I personally don't care, I'd pay for all three days even if I'm probably only getting in there Friday. I was just curious. (Has no clue how this whole thing works. =P)

Well I think to be fair, people who aren't coming for thursday don't have to pay. Even though if I do come thursday that may mean paying a few bucks more =b
I'm not sure what everyone else thinks, but to me that's fair...I think we have enough people for thursday that it's not going to be really expensive or something...

anyways, that's what I think...*sorry for the rambling, lol*

Hey, while we're still in the planning there's something I need to bring up.
I wanted to let it be known here and now that I'm gay. I know there are people who find that uncomfortable to deal with, and since more than likely I'm going to be taking you up on this room offer, I want to get it out in the open ahead of time, just in case. I'm just trying to cover my butt here.
If anyone has any problem or a complaint and doesn't want me in this room arrangement, I'll understand.

Right now my con plans are up in the air, being overthrown by other things. So, just, don't include me, ok? Thanks for being great and offering to anyone who comes along though ^^ Bye guys.

Um...I'll sleep anywhere...but i guess peoples should start giving me hotel info soon...so i can reserve it and what not...i was thinkin since we have so many people...maybe we could try n get one of the big rooms so we can all breathe a lil. With the amount of people we have it'll still be cheap *might cost a couple xtra dollas a person* but we'd have a hella lot more room ^_^ But thats just a thought...^//.//^

That's a really good idea, even if it does cost a little extra. Hehe, sides, I've always wanted to be in a really huge hotel room anyway ^^

Alanna-chan
04-04-2004, 05:32 AM
Can you tell us how much it's gonna cost first? and the hotel info was posted twice already, meh, http://www.wyndham.com/hotels/BWIIH/main.wnt mention otakon when you sign up. How many people are certain, and how many are maybes? If it's not too much, I'm certain, and I have a friend who might possibly maybe stay with us (navy, in an other country and not sure if it's too late to plan a leave) and he's gay too, so no worries.

Rinoa1022
04-04-2004, 12:15 PM
I think a big room would be great. If you go through the thread theres at least 10 definits and alot of maybes so wed be good. no matter what the room will be cheap hehe.

eep, hope im not too late, would there be room for me and maybe a couple others? we are 3 who are DEFINITES if there is room, quite possibly 6, so 3 defs 3 maybes.

PLEASE tell me, i need to know ^_^

Oh and while people are calling spaces, ill take the BEDS seeing as how noone seems to want them :square:

heh, having all these people would be fun, so long as no one steps on me. I would suggest bringing your own towels..and blankets...and pillows.... i dont think th hotel wll have enogh complimentry ANYTHING for this amount of people. :razz:

Miscellaneous
04-17-2004, 01:47 AM
Oh and if theres someone who could do the makeup for my friend's captain jack sparrow outfit, that would be great =)

Oh and my costume has a lot of, erm big parts kinda (see my profile) you can also see that im not a creepy guy either, lol, kinda a weird backround check, eh?

And uh, yeah i wouldnt mind paying a bit extra for a larger room, heck if some couldn't afford it, i would pay a lil towards theirs to. I like room, room is good =)

Oh and we would be definites for thursday so that would be 3+ to whomever is going in on thurs.

yes, definately need a BIG room, lol =D

and my saturday costume has wings...so i suggest perhaps the closet should be reserved for costumes and no one gets to sleep there =b lol
sorry for whoever called that ^_~

i think the only problem might be not having enough key cards for everyone =b

did we ever get an actual count of how many people were staying in the room?
perhaps i'll check back on the previous pages cus i know it was posted somewhere...

WoodenCoyote
04-17-2004, 07:21 PM
Wow, you're awesome fushigi-chan.

So would 2 rooms be enough? There would be about 10 per room. Does the hotel have a limit on the # of guests that can stay in a single room?

Rinoa1022
04-17-2004, 09:04 PM
lol some places have limits but they dont really care. but theres fire hazard limits that bother them lol. id say 2 rooms would be good! gotta think about shower time lol. plus all the mabes so we have alotttt of people!

Ok for whomever is booking we need a list of who is gonna be there for thursday, so please post on which days you will be staying, seeing as how we will have to book soon, before everything gets filled.

Me - definitely thurs, fri, and sat nights
My friend- same
My friend #2- same
Fushigi- Maybe thurs, def other 2
Fushigi's friend- maybe thursday
Rinoa- Def thurs
Rinoa's friend- def thurs
Rinoa's friend #2- def thurs

everyone else- please post!

fushigi-chan
04-18-2004, 01:07 AM
okay! Well for an update on a few things...
First, following a suggestion by someone, I checked on the "club" membership thing that lets you have late checkout...you can only do that if you're over 21, so to my knowledge, none of us are over 21...
But, I was discussing with Miscellaneous about maybe renting for sunday night too. I intend to stay at the con until 5 or later on sunday because of artist's alley and not having a ride until then, etc. So if anyone else was interested in that, please let us know.

Also, I think it was decided that we should get 1 room for thursday night and 2 rooms for fri/sat. Although it'll cost a tiny bit more *though still like $15 a night!!*, it would really be way too crowded for 20 ppl in one room!

Ok, and for a final note ~ I believe I've found two more people who want to stay in our room! =b I didn't think that would be a problem, especially with the two rooms.
They're both guys, and one of them is my sis's bf *don't worry, i'll make sure they hide themselves in a drawer, lol* and the other is just a guy friend

So they're both maybes right now b/c not sure about jobs, or other things, but I figured I'd at least mention them, okay.
I'll try and get answers outta them soon =b

Alanna-chan
04-18-2004, 04:27 AM
i think the only problem might be not having enough key cards for everyone =b
I was thinking about this too, and I think it would be a good idea to give them to people who
1: have cel phones which they keep on and with them
2: we will know where they'll be (like Fushigi-chan) all the time
This way everyone with out one can still find those who do.

Alanna-chan
04-18-2004, 04:32 AM
And with 2 rooms, it's gonna be at most $14.43 per person. We need more people! (lol, yes, I am that poor)

fushigi-chan
04-18-2004, 11:19 AM

yay! I'm glad I would be considered for a card =b lol, cus I will definately need to be running back to the room every once in awhile to change costumes. and although I don't have a cell, my friend does, so if i wasn't at my table for some reason...

Miscellaneous
04-18-2004, 05:08 PM
OK well, please post whether youre in for thursday, and whether youd be interested in staying sunday, because i really have to know these things if i have to book it. Also if everyone who is still definite would please reply, because it seems like we lost a few people along the way, and i wanna make sure we have the people to pay for it =p

Oh, and here are the rates for the nights (if you're staying) and assuming 10 people per room (heck, we might have more) this also includes taxes, and the dreaded hotel tax (whopping 15%)

For Thursday Night through Sunday Night (please stay sunday! =] ) --$78.00

For Thursday Night through Saturday Night -- $58.30

For Friday Thru Sunday Night --------------- $58.30

For Friday and Saturday Night -------------- $38.87

So its basically 20 bucks a night, with 10 people to a room, i forgot the 6% tax now that i think of it, so itll prob end up being somewhere closer to 20.

If you could stay sunday night it would help out a lot of people like fushigi with her artists' alley stuff, and myself with the bus tickets, because a bus is cheaper on weekdays, it would cut my bus fare by 60 bucks. So if you go go in on sunday, it would be great.

Now its up to more people to join in on this asap so i can get the math done right and book a room.

REPLY NOW OR BE SMITED.... SMITTEN... OR WHATEVER GOD CALLS IT!! RAWR!

04-19-2004, 09:56 AM
I really do need this info becaus ei wanna make sure we still have enough definites for 2 rooms on fri/sat to actually pay for them, so this info is uh kinda essential for booking, oh and im not stupid enough to say "YEAH WE GOT 10 PEOPLE IN THAT ROOM WOO PARTAY!" :dance:

Oh and ill be updating the post with the list as we get more replies.

Miscellaneous
04-19-2004, 10:26 AM
Aw crap i just called Wyndham, and we will need someone who's 21 to actually be there when we get the hotel.. . . . Is anyone who's planning to be there on thursday gonna have like, a parent with them, so we can check in, oh and the way that we would be paying is theres gonna be a deposit when we get the room that we'd have to pay, I would think I'd be able to cover it, as long as people would pay me as they get there... Still need to iron these things out.

I really thought you had to be 18, but the customer service lady said nope, its 21. (maybe thats for their particular hotel chain) I asked her a bunch of questions about it but they all pointed to "no" "no" and "no".

Rinoa1022
04-19-2004, 07:11 PM
hmmmm if no one here is 21 mabe we can just find someone to pose as a mommy or daddy lol. i might know someone over that age going but ill have to make sure. but im happy rooms are semi almost planned!! **huggles her roomies**

04-19-2004, 07:22 PM

no thats not the problem, the problem is, i can book it, i got someone with a credit card and everything, its just we need someone whos 21 in the room (or there when we get the room) and im not sure whether they want that person when we leave as well. I will try to get an older friend to go but don't count on me just yet... =\

Also, my "brother" is 21. But I'm still not sure if he's coming (though he says it's very likely) considering he lives in Japan now and the navy is anal about letting people off. And I know someone who has had this happen before, they just made him sign this contract saying that he won't take any alcohol from the minibar. lol, what makes them think we'ld drink illegaly? :drink:

Ok, i will be booking soon, and I hope we can eventually get enough people for sunday night, because its gonna be about 30 bucks O_O I just have to get my mom to let meh use her credit card. But she says i should post some rules so nothing gets taken *and charged to her card*, but i think we're all mature enough, eh? :razz:

Look at my earlier post to see how many people we have, and the estimated charges, they will most likely be less, but im giving a ballpark estimate.

Oh and if you all want more people to come, there are few other people that are interested in going, but not enough to make it to two rooms, so hey, its your call. And i dont really wanna book 2 rooms anyways, it'll end up being a bigger deposit when i get there and i wanna be able to pay it! =p

So look over my earlier list (its updated) and um, enjoy, or something. ^_^

WoodenCoyote
04-20-2004, 05:57 PM
As for the whole rules thing, I think we're all mature girls. Or at least, we can pretend to be mature =P

Alanna-chan
04-21-2004, 05:04 AM
Some rules..
If you are trusted with a key:
1- If you have a cel phone, leave it on
2- Fushigi-chan (or anyone with the same situation, like having a table in the artist alley or dealers room), try to stay there, and if you do leave for an extended period of time (like going to a panel), try to give it to a friend who's keeping your place.
3- Call the room first to see if anyone is there.
4- DON'T LOOSE THEM!

Food (most important part :razz: lol):
1- Bring non-perishables that don't need to be cooked (since we don't know if there's even gonna be a coffee maker in the room), I'm gonna bring Ramen, someone should try bringing soda or cerial
2- If you have a water bottle, it would be wise to label it, so it's not accidently taken by someone like me who shares with her friend, who share with their friends, who share with their friends (someone along the way could have mono or is just a true otaku and never brushes)

General rules:
1- DON'T TAKE THE TOWELS
2- bring your own shampoo and soap, even though it's almost always provided, there's barely enough for the legal 4-person capacity, let alone for 20 people.
3- no sex, please, I hope I don't even need to explain this (if you really must, go to their room).
4- No alcohol (in any way that can be traced by hotel staff anyway ;))
5- No room party, again, use someone else's room :D
6- No smoking, do I need to explain this one too?
7- No playing with fire. I know it's tempting, but please, go outside and do it if you really must.

yeah, i know not to smoke inside hotel rooms =D

Miscellaneous
04-21-2004, 11:10 AM
I'd most likely be about looking for some fast food to eat. =) I'll probably bring some ramen as well, since there always seems to be at least one unopened case in my house. =) But i kinda have to limit what i bring with me, since ill have this rollin' suitcase I'll have to wheel a few blocks from the greyhound station to the hotel, while carrying my gigantuous sword and shoulder/wing mount. Yeah im gonna look like a dumbass, but after walking around Boston in costume on the train, i'm pretty much prepared for anything. :dance:

Today i was gonna, but she got super pissed at something, and well, that was that.

Ok i booked the room, but unfortunately i couldn't get wyndham. (sorry they were booked solid, even non-otakon rate rooms) (same with the radisson)

The Cheapest i got was the Courtyard by Marriott Downtown/Inner Harbor in Baltimore, MD. The first one on the otakon list. (sorry fushigi, its a few blocks away but ill help if you want =] )

the rate is $164 per night. making our prices for each night:

Thurs- $13.67per person
Fri---- $10.93
Sat--- $10.93
Sun--- $27.33

Now if your looking at my past prices and saying "WTF?!?!?" they were just figures based on the room costing 200 per night (which it might me im not sure if tax was included and such, but details later)

Now i need arrival times, but im sure its a bit far off to be thinking about that.

Yay for roomage. :dance:

Hey sorry this is so late, but I just recently came back to cosplay.com and saw the PM.

I will be staying for Friday night and Saturday night, a.k.a. I'll be at Otakon for all 3 days. I was hoping Thursday but I can't because it would put too much on my ride. (He's driving from Virginia Beach to Raleigh to come pick me up. =))

I'm willing to drive a lil around md so if u don't live by me it's all good :) All i ask is a couple bucks be thrown towards gas-age. And maybe we should mention for people to pack light (minus ur costumes). I just kno we had nine people in our room last year and it was kinda crampin with our stuff so just thought i'd toss that out there. JA NE ^_~

Well, considering this is a "room for females only"... but I guess we could let a guy in if he's gay, or asexual. Or a eunuch.
I don't have any problem with it, as long as he agreed to keep to himself and behave. Otherwise we all get to mace him :p

i dotn mind guys in the room at all. one thing thats scarying me though is how many people lol. On the otakon board i posted askign how many to a room just out of curiosity and one person said 15. Every single person on the site pretty much jumped on them saying that its way to many to be comfy, a fire hazard, could get you kicked out easy, and could get the con in alot of trouble. The mods said to at least try to only put 8 in a room. we now have like....16? **wimpers**

I'm sorry, but since we're only renting one room, and we already have about 16 people in it, I don't know if we can fit anymore people.

Please anyone else, if you don't mind, I'm all for more people, but it seemed that people were concerned we would have way too many people jammed in the room as is

So, if everyone else says its fine, please don't think I'm trying to turn people away, but just from what people said recently...

You gotta be careful because if the Hotel does see like 10+ people go into a hotel room at once or a lot of noise, they're gonna kick people out, because most hotels charge occupancy rates, usually you can get around this with 4-5 people easily, but if your having a group of 16 people goodluck!

fushigi-chan

yeah, we'll definately have to be careful about noise, but since we won't be there for like the whole day anyways, i think we might be able to pull it off

Aheh....I'll share a room with someone (and someone could perhaps book two rooms? Just a thought? I've no credit card, or I'd go for it). And I also need a ride there. >< From Ohio.

Alanna-chan
06-19-2004, 06:03 AM
How many people are supposed to (legally) be in the room? Cuz if it's quad-capacity, you can most likely get 4 keys. I don't have a cell phone but if I can get everyone else's, I can mooch off of friends and use their phones ^^
Also, we shouldn't have more than 3-4 people entering the room at a time.

Misc, any details about the room? (ie: they have an iron, blow dryer, etc.)

Also, Fushigi said something about bringing food, so I think everyone should be responsible for something as far as food is concerned.
I have one of those things for heating up water (can be plugged in)
People should also bring:
-a cooler (hotel provides ice)
-coffee (instant)
-soda (preferably canned, but if it's in a bottle, someone should also bring plastic cups)
-other non-perishable stuff that doesn't need anything more than hot water.
I may also be able to bring cereal.
Also, if you bring a water bottle, mark it in some way.

Just suggestions, if anyone else has any ideas, just post them here. Also, just one last time, who's staying with us (98-100% sure)

And my friend chickened out so I need someone who's confortable with lying to my dad (we no have caller ID so it'll work as long as you sound motherly) Any volunteers? I'll pay you back at the con somehow.

Alanna-chan
06-19-2004, 06:06 AM
And one other thing, misc, you have paypal? That way we can pay you before we go broke.

fushigi-chan
06-19-2004, 08:29 AM
yay! someone got my PM! lol

I'll bring pocky!!! yay
I'm bringing a lot of food anyways for all the gatherings I'm going to, so it's not really a problem for me to bring extra stuff

So I got everyone covered on asian snacks =D
what's everyone's fav kinds of pocky? or i'll just get stuff i like...^_^

and yeah, I'm fairly sure the room is a quad, but sometimes they only give you 2 cards...I know at katsucon we had a quad and only got 2
but then again, that was the econo lodge, lol...-_-;;

And yeah, the prices are estimates, but it should be around that cost

I'll prolly be sending out a few more PMs as we get closer to the con =D I'll try not to be too annoying with it, but I think we all agree that things do need to be coordinated a bit since we have a million ppl in this room ^_^;;

06-19-2004, 01:51 PM
Oh, and about the whole sunday thing...checkout is at noon. If you are keeping your things in the room for a long time after 12:00, then PLEASE chip in some money!! I'll prolly have my things in the room until 4 or something, so even though I'm not spending the night, I'm paying the 25 bucks, so if you do stay for awhile, please put in like 10 bucks or something! It would really help out

ps. I'll give you pocky if you do =D

Yay! Thanks for updating the lists! I was kinda dreading doing that.. heh

Ok well i think i posted somewhere in there that one of my friends isn't coming, so take one off for each of those days. (yes, it was the sunday person)

and hmm hmm think think what else....

oh yeah, no i dont have paypal sorry just gimmeh teh munnays when you arrive.

Yes if you could give a lil bit towards the poor sunday people that would be great. :)

I can call the particular hotel chain and ask what appliances/stuff is in the room. I'll check it out.

I'll try to say when ill be arriving at the hotel although i wont know till i buy the bus tickets... but even then, buses can be late... I'll try for a conveinent arrival time..

think think think....

I can bring cleaning stuffs, like shampoo/soap and the like. I also need to find a nearby DDR machine sometime so i have something to do later at night. :bigtu:

thats all i can think of for now, thanks for the mass PMing :razz:

Hair straightener
Hair curler
Lotsa shampoo and soap =b
Pocky!
Like 50 dozen cookies *half goes to gatherings, and we can keep the other half of em, lol*
I can get bottled water too

I'll try and bring an extra pillow or two, for ppl coming on buses and such that can't carry that much ^_^ and perhaps an extra blanket as well.

and I thought of something else -- does anyone have a portable alarm clock? Either that or we could prolly get a wake up call or something

2 VOICEMAIL PHONES W/ DATAPORT,LGWORKDESK,IRON/
IRONING BOARD,HAIRDRYER,IN-RM COFFEE


I already know this room wil be a tight fit, and i mean REALLY tight, probably not even enough room for inflatable mattri. You all better be prepared for some "roughin it" hehe If you dont mind i think we can fit 3 per bed. (maybe with your friends or if you really dont mind) That would clear up some ground room for people to sleep. I'll probably end up sleeping against a wall or something, lol. I'm gonna end up with a hurting back i know it already.

18 people is gonna be harsh, REAL harsh, and well, just be prepared.

We can probably get 4 key cards, and i think that maybe we can find a spot to "hide" one once we get there, you know outside nearby the room, but it'd have to be a really sneaky place. This is just a suggestion, like maybe somewhere outside our room, buried in a plantjar or something? heh, just throwing a suggestion out there.

Oh and i'm not totally opposed to fushigi's plan either, i just think it might be a bit.. say.. confusing perhaps... well maybe im the only one whos kinda lost :waaaah: Plus, I'm not sure when I'd be changing. ( I plan on bringing a shinra soldier outfit too, hehe, dont worry it takes up like negative space)
