Unhappy Nekocon's Important Annoucement

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 =/



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

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'!! ) I hope he pre-reg. too.. 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.

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! ^_^_^_^_^_^

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

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 ^_^
