YEAH SERIOUSLY!

They didn't even wait for us to get any of our stuff in the room and they
were already asking for us to sit down with them! It was really amazing!
That part I missed a detail or two.  When did the VanHilt come up and ask to come back?

When we were at Gamestorm to run console gaming.

Am I correct in assuming that main events like cosplay contest, dances, and AMV will most likely be held in the Hilton?

Whatever hotel the main events are held in is the one I want to room in, so I don't have to walk back and forth to change out of cosplay, change for the KumoriBall, and then again for the Rave~

The 2011 Programming Director is the one who decides the layout, since we don't have one yet it no one can promise anything.  Though, you can ask the candidates their ideas on what the split should be :)

It's not as rigid as all that. Across the river or not, it is still known for its roots in Oregon and the Northwest, and that's what is important.

It will be for the best, too! We'll all have fun!

You can still get to Vancouver on public transit. (See: previous posts about C-tran, etc.) It's not that far from Downtown Portland, so it wouldn't be that hard to get there.

That's a smart move, Rathany. For every one person who raises a concern on the forums, there are probably a hundred off-the-forums with the same question.

I am so glad that I will be staying on site this time.  I wasn't the last time we were in Vancouver, and I was a reg asst. manager.  Man, I really should not have been driving some of those nights.

I'm so glad about the location change for next year, since my main complaint of kumoricon for the past two years is that it's been so cramped, and that it was all in one location.

But this next year, it will give me a chance to walk between locations, It's so refreshing.

I really can't express enough how much I'm looking forward to all the outdoor space for next year. It's going to be used well, I reckon.

I wish it was closer to next year, at least, then I'd have an excuse to start working on cosplay. I also just keep trying to envision the area around the hotel and remember if certain features and buildings are indeed there (or if I'm imagining them) for photo-shoot planning. Ah, all the things one can do when all they have is time on their hands, lol

I took some staff up today so they could walk the walk between the hotels.  I timed it with my phone. 

At a casual walking pace, while we were chatting, from the corner of the Hilton to the edge of the Red Lion property was 2 minutes and 45 seconds.  It was about 55 seconds more to the lobby door.  Again, this was at a 'chatting and strolling pace' and not a 'Ooh, I want to get somewhere' pace.

Well that is only a little more then what it took to go from gaming to any con space other then dealers hall this year.  It shouldn't be that bad, I just hope stuff is divided by type at the convention.  That way if you like certain things they will mostly be in the same hotel and we won't be walking back and forth every hour.

That's not a bad time at all. That's not even complaint-worthy, sounds like a great set-up. No farther from one another than one exhibit hall to another on a separate floor, really.

Also remember this: it's Vancouver, not Portland.  You have a better chance at getting mugged by a 70-year-old lady in Portland than from the stereotypical mugger in Vancouver, especially so close to the Hilton.

On a note that serious, watch out for yourself and keep friends close. Staff and Yojimbo are there to keep everyone and everyone safe, and if you watch for yourself also, everything should be good. Very few people will come to an event like Kumoricon with assault in mind. Most just want to have fun and are as protective of their fellow con-goers as their own families. ^_^

That's inside the con-space, and outside of it, like Washougal said, Vancouver is not nearly as nocturnal as Portland. There really just isn't a local nightlife, where the hotel is located anyway. It's vacant at night and safe by day, so, yay for that!

As quoted from AllyKat yesterday:
ok, a few questions. i wanna start looking at hotel reservations now. is there some kind of passcode that will give me a discount? if so, what is it? and, when can i get my con badge for 2011? i kinda want to pre reg now. but i dont see it up and running yet.

*Has a panic attack*

Erm... um... give me like.... a day or two okay? It's Sunday right now and my contacts aren't in office... but wow... ok... I will get that set up ASAP...

So, I'd give it a week at least before expecting any information on room codes/rates/etc. AllyKat's working hard! We're all just too eager too early, haha

If you are worried about being assaulted.  Look in the lobby for a guy that has friends just standing talking, and ask him, or them, to walk with you.  You can substitute the boy with a girl if you are worried about other cosplayers.  

Also, while yoji might figure something out to escort people, a private group of people might form to assist those at night walking from one place to another.

When I think k-con and breakfast buffet it pops into my head

Scott Pilgram and the infinite sadness

I expect the Hilton's restaurant to be severely slammed, buffet + bacon always means borderline thievery. But, that's what it's there for. I'm sure I'll be taking advantage of the restaurant, since I didn't last time I was there.

If you are worried about being assaulted.  Look in the lobby for a guy that has friends just standing talking, and ask him, or them, to walk with you.  You can substitute the boy with a girl if you are worried about other cosplayers.  

Also, while yoji might figure something out to escort people, a private group of people might form to assist those at night walking from one place to another.

I was hitting on just this point some pages ago. I'll be cosplaying as this guy and just hanging around the con-space all weekend, especially in the evenings, so, open invitation to anyone, if you need some sort of unofficial escort or apparent muscle, I'd be glad to help out. Barret's made for intimidation and protection, haha, Just come find me.  ;D

Safety concerns are not to be taken lightly, but don't panic.  If I had thought to bring my video recorder today I could have shown you the walk and that might help lay to rest some fears.  The staff I brought there today were far more relaxed once I showed them the actual walk.

I believe you can book the hotel room and apply the Kumoricon code to it later.
