ST. catharines goers?

So, when I found out the GCAF was cancelled- my sister was devistated, so I promptly tried to set up a trip for her to Oshawa for the NAF. But, I realized there must be alot of people who are upset about the cancellation of the GCAF- so I'm trying to extend the invitation


I've recently made a trip propisition to the GCAF board to go to NAF in oshawa on the 27th. Here's the second e-mail I sent.

----
As of now, I received a final quote of $1666 for the bus trip here and back for a 47 seat coach bus. Now, at this point (while I'm not even sure you're going to be in on this or not- but I'm just making sure), each person would have to pay around $65 to get there and back, and I'm in the process of getting the information on a discount fee to get into the con. But before I go further with the correspondence to the general inquiries manager- I'd like to be certain if this is going down or not. The bus could even be downsized to a school bus if $1666 is too much for you to be responsible for.



I'm sure if we can round 47 people up that are willing to pay $50-60, it would be totally possible, and a nice little compensation for the cancellation of the GCAF. It'd be just like a school trip. I'm going to continue the search for an organization that may want to host this- but I do believe this is an event you wouldn't mind to hold, since the cancellation did let down a lot of fans.



Hope to hear from you.

The con, referring to NAF. And the 47 people referring to you, the people that are upset that the GCAF was cancelled. I was wondering if anyone was interested, who's willing to go to downtown st. catharines to get the bus to oshawa & shell out the close to $60 (if we get the discount)? It'd be fun to do this as a group, and your costumes that you worked hard on for the GCAF will not go to waste anytime soon.

First, Northern Anime Festival is not on the 27th its on the 22nd of July (to prevent confusion).

Next, if you are going to charter a school bus, I can tell you now (as we looked into it ourselves in the past) It will cost you close to $500 to $600 as most places will charge by the hour + KM.

On part of Northern Anime Festival, we applaud your efforts to get people from st. catharines down to our event. I just want to ensure everyone that this bus service is NOT a sponsored service by Northern Anime Festival.
