In 2007 our room (that we shared) door lock kepted messin up.Demon and I were over at the Hilton at the time Hal, Anita, and Nikki went back to the room. Hal got pissed, cussed out the manager, and when Nikki called me back, we were packing to go to a Suite on top floor of the Marriot, with wet bar and $100 on room service.

Oh nooo! Laughing

When Pam and I went to OmegaCon in Birmingham last year, we couldn't get in the Sheraton, so we stayed in a neat old hotel near UAB that was recommended on the OmegaCon website and was in the process of being restored.

Problem was... everything was breaking, or something was wrong... the lady at the desk started recognizing our voices over the phone.

Pam was going down to the ice machine and the doorknob came off in her hand. We just started laughing, b/c it was par for the course.

Of course we were locked in until they finally could get upstairs to "free" us. We got really chummy with the maintenance guy over the weekend. Laughing

Off topic, I know, but your post reminded me of this.

(P.S. It really was a neat old hotel... I'd love to stay there again if all of the restoration is finished.)

Thanks for the warning.

And I suspect that alcohol is going to play a large role in this.

Question: Can you buy one day D*C passes online, or do you have to buy them the day you want to go? I am more than likely only going to go for one day (Saturday probably), and I can't remember if you buy them that day or if you can get them online.

Unless I get lucky and happen to come across a 4 day membership and pay a more reduced price than $90. I guess I'll go post on the main D*C forum and see if anyone responds.

What I have heard (sorry always used a 4 day) is that you have to do the 1 day at the door because D'con has a fire marshall imposed cap so the single days are calculated on how many spots they have under that cap for that day.

You have to stand in line for just a one day pass. But, if you're not going to any special events (just be in parade, walk around motels, 501st party, RL pic, etc) you don't need a pass. If you're in costume, no one is gonna bother looking for a pass on ya. You just won't get to go to Saber Idol (btw, Chris, do you know when that will be?), masquerade, etc.

I will be there the entire time. I have a room at the Hilton: checking in Thurs and leaving Mon. Never have stayed at Hilton but they are charging me $175/night + taxes so came to $201/night. More expensive than last year. I liked staying at Sheraton last year but it will be a lot different this year being official motel.

Also, does anyone know of any specifics for Rebel Legion.....manning a table, RL party, is official photo same as last year, etc? Would help to know some official details. I can volunteer for various things if know when and where.

Geez.....this will be my 12th year in going to DC. Makes me feel as old as Yoda Laughing Rolling Eyes Laughing

Check the DragonCon 2009 section here on the RL forums. They have days and times of the RL stuff that's going on. I know the parade is Saturday at 10:00, the RL photo shoot is Sunday (not sure of time...maybe 10:00), and the SW costume contest is at 2:30 Saturday. That's all I know.... Thumbs up

"Crazed-up" economy + being completely financially strapped + D*C's outrageous hotel and pass fees = No Campbell Family at Dragon*Con this year...

For real man, I feel your pain. That's why I'm only going on Saturday. And I'm just going to the "free" stuff (parade, 501st mixer, and just to hang out). We'll miss you! Crying or Very sad Oh crap, who will be the protector of our cookies now? uh oh You're our Official Cookie Keeper, Cam! Crystal from Ra Kura will surely steal all of our cookies now!
