I have 9 on the ride list
  1. Kit
  2. +1
  3. Wired
  4. +1
  5. Haunter
  6. Castor
  7. Vlad
  8. Doki
  9. Toucan Son of Sam

This puts cost at $11. If this is okay I'll call my driver today and ensure that he's still available. If so I'll get him out there tomorrow circa 6:45 or 7, that way kit and guest have time to snag luggage and what not and you all still get back in time to register.

Kit's guest is arriving separately, and Toucan Son of Sam is still not coming to AWA.

How DARE you spread such lies.

We got a NEW bird.
We have the technology. He is now better than he was before. Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.

As for the guest I think I found someone to fill the slot. I'm still working hard to get a good deal so don't give up on me yet.

So what time are we meeting at the airport and what time are we leaving for the hotel? I want to make sure I have enough time to check in and pick up my crap before we run off to dinner.

Also I presume you mean $11 per person, in which case I'll be covering my girlfriend's fee for the ride.

It looks like we'll be leaving around 7pm at the earliest. Since many of us are getting in at different times, we'll all be around the dinosaur bones.

Yeah, all was accounted for not to worry.

Tomorrow everyone meet with Castor by the Dinosaur bones. As soon as I get the "hi" sign from Kit I'll get the driver underway. That way hopefully we can make it sooner than 7. Sorry I won't be able to meet you all there but Castor has my number if you need anything. Travel from the airport at 7 shouldn't take very long so you should have plenty of time to check in and get registered before we head out. If need be I'll stall the group until you guys are assembled. I know its a bit if a crunch on time but thank for being so patient.

See you all at the hotel and have a great flight :D

If possible, can you add one more to the list for the dinner and the limo. My flight arrives at 2:10pm but I've got a laptop and a DS so boredom shouldn't be a problem.

I've been so out of the loop due to prepping other stuff that I forgot about the Thursday night dinner. I do miss the rite of passage as new folks crossed the Bridge of Death for the first time.

Sending a PM to Castor (Pilk's going to be offline the remainder of the day) would probably be advisable. Also, has Vic managed to make arrangements to get the IE computers and himself up to the con?

I've got both Castor's and Pilk's numbers so we can start some absolutely ridiculouls game of telephone in trying to get our asses gone.

I am somewhat worried still about the hotel with leaving at seven because we would be at the hotel around 7:30 which only leaves us an hour to get situated and everything and reg last yera was a nightmare for the poor saps in the first half of hte alphabet.

Just responded to your PM. I'll have my DSi and laptop. Maybe we can all play Mario Kart/Tetris to burn time. :P

Those hours are also good for standard pre-reg pickup and at the door full-weekend purchases (which is the only type of badge that will be available Thursday). They've stated elsewhere as long as you're in line by 10 they'll take care of you Thursday, but I wouldn't try and cut it too close.

As for the lines, they've done away with the letter specific ones for exactly that reason. It may go slightly slower in the long run but it'll at least be a little more uniform across the board.
