ARRIVING AT THE CON
With the convention only a week out, here's a few helpful reminders pertaining to your trip.
If you are flying into the Atlanta airport, you can save by taking the Holiday Inn Atlanta Airport shuttle instead of renting a car. The hotel shuttle is completely FREE transportation to the hotel from the airport. It runs every 15 minutes between the hours of 4:30a.m. and Midnight. The shuttle is still available for late arrivals, but must be called from the airport. Once you arrive in Atlanta, follow the signs out of the concourse directing you to Baggage Claim. Walk or ride the People Mover to the baggage claim area. Follow the signs to the Ground Transportation Center outside the North terminal. The Holiday Inn Atlanta Airport shuttle is located at row F in stalls 1-9. Look for the one that says "Holiday Inn" on the side. If you need assistance, you can use the courtesy phone to call the hotel at "0".
Arriving via car? Take I-85 towards Atlanta, take exit 73B Virginia Avenue, and the hotel is one half mile on the left. Total driving time should be about five minutes.
If you missed out on pre-reg this year, you can still register at the con during the following hours:
You can also avoid the hastle of pre-reg next year by buying a 2007 membership at the con on Sunday from 3:00pm-5:00pm.
The convention schedule for 2006 has been posted! To see what events we have scheduled for your pleasure, visit our events page. There is a list of preliminary events there as well as a link to our schedule.
GOD LEVEL GIFT
And now for the unveiling of the God Level gift! Just kidding! God level members, as always, are in for a treat. Flain is sure that his idea was definitely not concocted by Tigerpaw, nor by anyone else on staff, no matter what Drake says, but Flain will assure you that it is awesome in almost all ways possible, except nutritionally. OMG!!! Spoiler!!!
It's never too late to volunteer! You will get a discount on next year's membership if you volunteer this year. Let our volunteering director know if you want to help! Contact him here.
