I suppose as the meal deal's included with the room rates that it'll be picked up when we charge to our rooms or they see our convention badges? :?

They have a open area in the main body of the reception where a bar is with tables & chairs etc where you can order food,and I believe if it's like the last time reduced priced meals at particular times, as well as the resturants but only the breckie is included in the cost of your room, all else you have to pay for or charge to your room. Image see you all in the bar.

There is also a Voodoo Board, check against your name -- if you see a pin, it means you have a message. So you can tell people where you are or put a tick opposite your name which means you have arrived. :)

I always get up around that time anyhow - I set the clock to make sure I do. It means I get a chance to chat to Sharlene on Skype before she goes to bed. :wink:

All folded and I managed to squeeze a couple of hundred on top as well Bouncy - I didn't need so much bubble wrap to make sure they didn't get too curly-edged in transit though as they just about fill that nice box which is now occupying about 25% of my bag... :shock: :lol:

How long is the con? Surely you don't need more than 2 pairs of clean keks, and 2 pairs of clean socks? :wink:

Left on Tuesday afternoon for a mod week break before going to the Con on Friday. Back and shoulders were/are really hurting me so we came home after 1 night as I prefer the bed here (after a week of being at Wadfest, its a luxury). So, we decided we may as well spend the money we saved on 2 nights by heading to the Con today...in about an hour if her majesty gets out of bed.

I've been awake since 820am....I thought the clock said 950am in my bleary eyed state and I didn't realised until after a coffee and brekky, turned the computer on and then realised the time....too awake to go back to bed 9and excited!)

Thu-Mon...you're probably right :twisted:
