I have a handful of things to share with you today.
Registration, Shirts, and Hotel Rooms
Early bird registration has ended, which means that t-shirt pre-orders have also ended. You can still register online until July 24th. There will be a limited supply of t-shirts available for purchase on-site, for those that missed the cutoff date.
On a related note, when I last spoke to the hotel on Monday, we were within two rooms of hitting our initial room-block reservation. I don’t know how much space the hotel has available beyond that, so I would recommend booking your hotel rooms soon, if you haven already done so.
We have added a page that explains several options for getting to the Mysterium hotel from various starting locations. You can check it out here. That leads into…
Room & Ride Share Forums
The forums have returned (after a bit of database wrangling)! You can use the forums to find roommates to lower the cost of a hotel room, and for coordinating ride sharing on the way to the convention. I’ve pinned a post to the top of each sub-forum with directions on how to get the most out of them.
A few quick reminders:
If you were planning to submit an event/panel idea, now is the time! Submissions close at the end of this week, on June 19th. You can get all the details here.
Paper People submissions are still open. You can get the details from this post.
Finally, we are still looking for some kind souls to donate items for prizes. If you have any ideas, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re getting very close now! Under two months to go. Next time, I hope to have a little teaser of something we’ve code named Escape the Age to show you. But until then,
