Re: Shore Leave

For the record, there's a crosswalk with lighted signals just about a block from the hotel.

WALK/DONT WALK, etc.

Yeah, I'll be happy enough with that.

I'm still a bit disappointed I haven't heard anything back from the committee yet. I left online messages - as recommended on the official website - for several different people about a month ago now, but so far nothing. And the only ticket receipt I have is my PayPal print-out for a weekend pass.

Should I have heard from the committee by now?

I think the only "extra" I need to consider is the Richard Dean Anderson talk ticket? Not that he's on my must-see list.

Why are you expecting to hear from them? Are you trying to get on panels? They're probably not even thinking about the schedule yet.

To pick up your badge, all you need is ID. Your Paypal receipt would be useful, but not necessary.

Well, only because every other convention I've attended having already paid money in advance, there's usually been some kind of acknowledgement. This is the first one by PayPal, but the site is set up for getting answers to questions from various committee members. Long-running fan-run committees always tend to be a bit more communicative, in my experience. This thread (and the static info on the webpage) have been my only sources of info so far. (But I'm so grateful it's here!)

There was supposed to be a dedicated email list, too, but nothing's come through. Not even an automated welcome. Coupled with my initial difficulties with the hotel site, seemingly accepting my booking, then no reply, it's all be a bit nebulous, esp. when I'm traveling so far to attend! In some ways, this feels like my very first convention.

Are you trying to get on panels?
I think I asked about them.

They're probably not even thinking about the schedule yet.
Ok, thanks.

I have known people to travel 100s of miles and be unable to gain admission to a sold-out con that they assumed they had bookings for. Just double-checking.

Too late when I get there and people say, "Why didn't you panic when you didn't hear from the committee with xxx weeks?"

Re: Shore Leave

Vis a vis setting up a TrekBBS meet-up - there's a sub-forum within Misc for arranging meetups, but if anyone wants to create a thread in here to attract lit-folk, I'll sticky it until the convention.

Please read the meet-ups thread about safety at meet-ups though - and I hope you all have a great time at the convention, even if there isn't a BBS meetup

That's awesome. I don't think it makes much sense this far out, but I'll create a thread a little closer to the con and I'll PM you when I do.

Yep, the Sydney Star Trek Meetup Group has used that forum a few times, but you have to remind people to go to Misc. (and risk people accusing you of spamming in other threads), because so few people think to check that forum. Misc. is how I discovered a whole bunch of new Trek people a decade after our local Trek club folded.

Looking forward to meeting you all at Shore Leave!
