We do offer a cheaper rate of $10.00 for children under 12. I've been meaning to update that on the website...

Thank you for the quick response. She wanted to go to her first con but her mom won't let me take her out of Oshawa. I'm starting her into Anime and Manga so she's very excited about going and starting her own collection.

Hm, just a suggestion for a fun event that came to mind -
How about outdoor cosplay games? Such as capture the flag, tag, or such games. People love those and I think I'd personally have a blast. Maybe a prize for the winner too? I could help supply some prizes ^^

Clarissa - If you're willing to run stuff and supply prizes then by all means go ahead! And in the event that it rains or something, you could always donate the prizes to another department? =D

Contact the programming department and pass along your ideas. ^^

roughly how many people show up (or have pre registered) for this convention? I have a table booked at Artist's Alley, and this is my first print selling (hopefully) con. I just wanted to get a wrough estimate on how many prints I should make of each artwork...
