Blizzcon 2017

If you're interested in a house please fill out ASAP!

Getting a jump start on this for this year!

If we have enough people we can look in to a rental or block of rooms somewhere. In case, I've booked a room at Motel 6 as my cheapest fallback for the week (yay free cancellations!)

Let me know if you plan on going, and if so, how long you plan on staying! The convention itself is Friday Nov 3rd and Saturday Nov 4th. Last year I went for almost a week though (Weds-Mon) and I don't regret a second of it!

Tickets go on sale super soon, 4/5 and 4/8. You can buy up to 4 tickets per person, so we'll want to figure out exactly how many tickets we need as a guild, we can coordinate :)

https://blizzcon.com/en-us/news/20594606

Tickets: $199 + tax
Rental: Right now looking at rentals between $300-$500/night, up to 11 people, for Oct 31-11/5. If we get 10 people to go in on it, max would probably be $300/person. Of course I would coordinate based on how long someone is staying etc.
Flights: Southwest was super cheap for me last year, $210 for a roundtrip flight directly to LAX with 2 bags
Transportation: I probably spent a couple of hundred dollars on ubers but it was still cheaper than a rental car
Food: I honestly don't know, I was on a liquid diet that week

Budget Timeline:
4/5: $199+tax for ticket
7/31: Payment to Jules for the house *no exceptions*, amount TBD
10/15: Liquor/food fund, amount TBD

Let her kill you afterward. Easier to just go and ask for forgiveness later.

Not to put pressure on anyone to make a decision, but if you're even a solid MAYBE, let me know.

I may have possibly potentially probably already booked a house for up to 9, but have 48 hours to make a decision/refundable deposit.

I'd like to but not sure. Been talking about a trip to san diego during the fall with the GF, maybe I could do Blizzcon and meet her in san diego or something. I'll keep you posted.

I'll be going if I'm not on course, and I won't be unless something goes very wrong, or very right and all my training times are bumped forward (but military, so that's never a thing)

I kinda want to go, but it's hinging on many factors. Talking to a RL friend about it as well.

Would love to go, but I won't be able to take off the time since it'll be the last year of my PhD.

There will always be ways to get rid of them if you can't go in the end.

House is booked Oct 31-Nov 5 but a lot of people said they'd rather check out on Monday (instead of 10am the day after the con,) so if enough people would rather do that I'll adjust the rental
