This event is just under 2 months away and given the problems we had with them last year, do we have the ball rolling on what we're doing regarding this event this year yet?

Actually I have been thinking about seeing if we can organize a charity game for this event.
One idea I had was to do something like they are doing at the Louisiana Ren faire, Send kids on missions to get stuff and they can then gain levels. At the end of the day we post who was the best agent

being that it is only 2 months away I wonder if there are any spaces left.

I know the 788th is planning on attending, but I dont know if they secured a table or not. I also havent heard any traffic on the BAG boards.

although this is a good idea, WWNO is a bad con to do it at. Any money we receive at this event is subject to Fees. We barely avoided it last year.

I still wonder about the legitimacy of those people running around last year.

I wish they would form us into a 501.c.3. There was some talk last year but I am not sure anyone followed up on it.

Another possibility is to have a member of the charity (who would already be a 501.c.3) we would donate to be there to accept the donations

Just need to find out who determines if we have to pay fees

going back to what Evan said, there's this.

Im not opposed to WW. Frankly we got some fantastic recruits from it who have gone on to become awesome members. But I am not at all happy with their business practices and the way they handle the fandoms.

Yes, of course I gave requested a table for us. They have not replied back, yet. I'm sure we will have a space, though. They tend to be late on our show because it's the first one of the year.

i have never stayed down there during the event, i have always driven back and forth. I would rather rest than drive and spend all that money on gas and several hours on the road.

Where do people stay when they are down there ?I am not famialir with the hotels there.
