Alright folks, we have six months until the next MAGFest is upon us. This is going to be one crazy year. Actually, each MAGFest is crazier than the year prior. We've had ever-increasing turnouts from the OCR community, so best to start tracking stuff now and get your details in order!

I want to go, but it depends on my family's vacation plans. I'm hoping to extend my Christmas vacation. What day is the OCR panel?

Last year i swore that I would go to the next one. Though after looking at my current budget is sleeping for the four days really necessary? If someone collapsed on day three they would probably just let him lay there right?

I think i may be able to attend afterall.

I'll most likely be coming this year (it'll be my first!!!) as long as there aren't any family plans around the same time. I honestly didn't really know much about it until I heard how much awesomeness was had at this past years'.

I'm not sure of my rooming or transportation needs at this time, I guess I'll figure that stuff out the closer.

I will go even if I have to join the homeless for a few days. I'd be willing to split a room with peeps. I'm going to wait a bit before buying my ticket though (already went passed my spending quota this month, and I need to book my flight).

There is no way in hell I will miss another MAGfest, apocalypse be damned!

I want to go, but I'm going to have to be super frugal this year. That said, the number one cost of last year was definitely the room. I'd be willing to share a room and split the costs with low-key, fairly quiet people.

The OCAD room may have 2 slots open. Also since they aren't doing Super Supporter badges anymore, the cheap upgrade pass I would give out at previous cons is no longer available.

Room booked...supported badge purchased.

I took care of this as soon as I was able to. If anyone is flying into Dulles airport, I might be able to pick you up depending on when you arrive.

I'm totally going this time.

I'll hop on whatever car/plane/boat/etc. you're taking, I just need to figure out how to get back in time for classes, since they start the day after Mag for me... I'm not missing this again, though. I'll work something out.

We should petition the guys in charge (aka bribe Inverse Phase) so that we get a decent time slot for the OCR panel.

Also, if someone has a decent video camera, I would be down for recording and editing all the panels.

EDIT: Should mention I live nearby, so I could deliver the video to one of the staff.

EDIT2: Brushfire, how much is the room for all 4 nights?

I actually think last year's time was perfect. Due to being at night, they had as long as they wanted to host the panel. That's good stuff!

I'll probably be there but it's too soon to say really, financially. I'd pre-reg in September or so like I usually do, hopefully join a group like I did last time and save $10.

I would prefer an earlier time - I was too trashed.

You want to get trashed earlier? That makes no sense. ;-)

Well, we plan on going again, but as per usual, depends on money and time. Hasn't stopped us before though!
