conventions, party

Baycon pre-reg penalty

So the Baycon registration line goes down a hallway past convention rooms, twists back behind the stairs and all the way into the main hotel registration area. I was there for an hour, and everyone in the back of the line was still visible from the main foyer when I left. This means it's a 2-3 hour line for registration.

Now if you didn't pre-reg, they have 5 people sitting at a table bored silly ready to register you right now.

Next year I'll pay $15 more and not lose 3 hours of my life sitting in line.
