I could nitpcik a few things, but why?

It just overall sounds like an awesome show and I'm getting more and more excited by the minute.

I assume Seibertron will have some reps in the BoardWars and hopefully some of the other contests?

Looking forward to seeing many of you there!

I wish i could go...it's kinda nice to have a relatively Midwestern BotCon for a change. I miss the ones in Rosemont. Maybe we should move Dairycon down to Madison and make it more of a full Midwestern thing.

Can't go for two reasons: school and surgery last Tuesday. Sucks...

I don't get how people are supposed to pick up their packages AND be at their respective tours or classes at the same time. :???:

Someone on this board, I think it was Counterpunch mentioned how he got to pick up his package at a different time. I think he had a lavendar sheet, what color was yours? You might want to drop the Botcon people a line, they are pretty good at answering that sort of question.

It souynds like you are doing a lot of rushing and stressing over this and that's no fun. Last year I was in a little of the same boat as I lost my licence right before the show and had to take a flight a day later and miss the charity movie screening. You mentioned somewhere how you originally wanted to fly, did you check if there were any flights left? We were in a momentary budget crunch so I booked my flight only a few days ago. It had gone up a bit but it worked out.

We're just gonna go with the flow and see what we can and have a good time. It's my first Botcon so i don't want to get stressed out trying to catch everything. It should be a blast and hopefully i'll get to meet some of you! :D
