No Kisara?

I'm worried that one (or more) of my friends will flake out since we split all of the costs for going. If that happens, I don't know if I'll have enough funds to cover the difference. Otherwise, I'd say that I have a good 60% chance of attending. If not, I hope my friends let me know in time so that I can get refunds and use the money for another project.

Getting into Otakon is relatively cheap when compared to all of the other costs combined for most of the attendees. If you can get to the harbor, getting into Otakon is just a little extra. Mow the lawn, walk the neighbor's dog, etc. Pretty much any series of small jobs will easily pay for a weekend pass. That should be the least of your worries.

I'm definitely making it this year, even though i probably shouldnt, but I already paid for the hotel.

And, much like count metal said...I'm not too sure about 2011 and after.

Hehe, that's probably the best solution when all else fails.

By the time Otakon comes around, I'll probably be short $1.2k+ (with $600 budgeted for Otakon). Sounds like a lot (at minimum wage, you'd need to work 11 hours/week for four months), but I'll figure something out.

Going this year, but considering not returning in 2011. Dealers room definitely lacking past few years, which is a main part of me going to cons at all. Well, that and a few other reasons.

i'm still trying to save up to go this year, but the snowstorm that hit us really messed up my work schedule. :/
i'm afraid that if i do go i'd end up doing what i did the one year which was leaving the con at 3pm to go to work and not get off untill 11.

needless to say, i did not enjoy myself at all. as for 2011...i dunno yet...

I would say that I'm unsure, but I've already paid for the hotel ($1000) and it's nonrefundable. I'm not sure about 2011 and beyond, though. I'll have to seriously think about it.
