    -Old News-
    UPDATE! : The committee members have been chosen and applications to be a committee members will no longer be taken. Please see the latest post for a complete list of our wonderful volunteers!

    Hello one and all!

    In case you haven't heard, Resin Con 2008 is a GO!

    In order to bring more great fun to all those who attend, we're going to actually have a committee of dedicated people to help make the event a super success.

    If you are interested in being on the Resin Con 2008 Committee please submit the following information to this email address...

    resin_con@hotmail.com

    INFORMATION -

    Name:
    DoA Screen Name:
    Address:
    Phone number you can be reached:
    Email address you can be reached:
    A list of things you are willing to help out with:
    Days and times you're typically available for correspondence:
    A statement of why you'd like to help out:


    Basically if you send me your information then you are automatically put on the committee HOWEVER! the committee shall not reach over 10 members other than myself. The total shall be 11 so that if there are any ties that I can be the tie breaker with decisions. If we reach 10 people rather quickly then I will stop taking applications.

    Committee members will get discounted tickets to Resin Con, but remember, you have to actually DO something to help out. Serious applications only PLEASE.

    Thanks so much and here's to another great year!!

    It will depend upon how many days and what sort of badge you want (vendor or attendee) and the special for the pre-registration is going to be, buy one pass and get the second of equal or lesser value for half price.

    Hello again! I was informed the 3 digit code does not work when ordering online. Here is updated information for reserving rooms with the hotel online!

    Updated info on reserving rooms, copied and pasted right from the hotel manager's email!

    ___________________________
    Happy Valentines day to you!

    I checked on the reservations and this is what you will need
    to make them online rscrscb (double bed room)
    rscrsca (king room)
    I am holding 20 of each, if one selection sells out first they will get
    a message that room type not available. There may still be rooms
    available but it would be of the other type. If you have any other
    questions or have any other problems just drop me an email.

    (Direct links to making online reservations)

    Greetings:

    As your Marriott International Representative, I want you to know that online room reservations are now just a click away!

    Simply cut and paste any of the three links below and include with your electronic correspondence to facilitate the reservation process. Your guests will be directed to the property's home page with the code already entered in the appropriate field. All they need to do is enter their arrival date to begin the reservation process.
    Courtyard Paducah West >> ( http://marriott.com/pahcy?groupCode=...p;app=resvlink )

    Just to let everyone know...

    There are only 1[Edited 10:10pm 2-20-08 to reflect updated numbers] Tea Party tickets left available.

    There are only 2[Edited 10:10pm 2-20-08 to reflect updated numbers] Vendor's booths left available.

    Also, one fourth of the total number of Saturday badges and almost one third of the total number of Sunday badges available...are sold.

    I did not think it possible...but I think if things keep going like they are I may actually sell completely out way before the actual date. =S

    Also...Don't forget to make payment!! If payment is not received before 15 days after confirmation the tickets will be canceled and resold.

    The last vendor's table is being held for AoD US distributor. If they are unable to come it will go back up for sale but at this moment ALL vendor's booths are reserved.

    Two Tea Party tickets are being held for Moony. If they are unable to come NO MORE TEA PARTY TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE! The Tea Party is over-booked as it is and I will accept no more registrations that request Tea Party tickets.

    In other words...
    Vendor's booths are sold out!
    Tea Party Tickets are sold out!

    In addition HALF of the Sunday tickets are gone!
