Alright, after confirming things with my friends, here's where I stand:

I have a minivan with seven seat belts.  It can fit six people comfortably, but a seventh can squeeze in.

Currently, I have three passengers: two guys and one girl, all aspiring writers (like me).  The guys have arrangements to stay with friends, the girl hasn't booked a room yet.  I'll be staying with some old mission friends, so I don't need a place to stay.

I've got three open seats, if anyone needs a ride.  We'll leave from Provo, UT early Thursday morning (early enough to miss the California traffic, hopefully--like around 5am) and come back Monday night.

I keep meaning to come over here and post, and I just realized today that it's been a MONTH that I've been meaning to do so. So thanks to everyone looking out for me letting Julie know I needed a room and everything.

I do still need a ride. I'm hoping to replace my tires and brakes by mid-October, so there was the possibility I could drive if necessary, but I'd rather not if there are spaces. Marion, if you're driving, I'd be glad to catch a ride with you, or whoever else has a spot.

Janci, I believe the girls' room is just me, Heidi, and Julie so far, so if you ended up wanting to stay with us instead of with friends you'd be welcome to.

Quick question:  What's the difference between buying a supporting membership at World Fantasy and buying an Attending Membership?  I'm not going this year, but I hope to attend in the future, and it would be good to know for future reference.

Thanks.

Supporting means you get the convention publications, and you have the right to nominate works for the World Fantasy Award. You would not be allowed to attend.

Just so everyone knows, their Attending Memberships are SOLD OUT for this year.

Sigh. That lets out the possibility of a last-minute lottery ticket and my professor deciding not to have a midterm on Friday after all.

Oh well.

There are people who are selling their tickets online.  Check out their livejournal here: http://community.livejournal.com/worldfantasycon/

There will probably be a few going up for sell right before as people realize they can't come.

According to the list, we have 13 people coming from Utah... and there might be more from the forums showing up. 

There is a small park across the street that we can all meet up for lunch/dinner if people want to.  What are people's plans for the convention?  Any plans to hang out after the con?

Since I don't know what people look like, if someone at the con wants to meet up, send me a pm. I'll be checking my email throughout the day.

It shouldn't be too hard to find Dan. Just follow the smell of bacon and the trail of blood. He'll be the one with the bloody steel-clawed gauntlets.

He is also doing a panel on Sat at 4. So if I avoid the bloody bacon scent I can say hi to him there.

I wish I was there... *sigh*

Hopefully someone is putting Dan's appearances up on YouTube. I can use those to tide me over until I go next year!

I would if I could. Sadly I have one of the non-video-taking iPhones.
