If you are planning on cancelling for BGG.CON 2006, please let me know in the next few days. I'll offer refunds up till October 10th 2006. After that, I'm afraid I can't do it - or I'll lose my mind.

I won't be able to go this year after all, unfortunately. Next year for certain, tho, so save a spot for me in 2007!! Is there a formal cancellation process, or do we just post here?

Is there a place to look in BGG to find out where we are on the wait list?

I'm still attending but my partner will be unable to attend. So, one of the two tickets can be refunded. But only one, I've got my airfare and hotel and I can't wait!

On a related subject, we're still coming to the Con, but we've consolidated into one room at the Westin and I'm about to cancel the other Westin reservation I made.

If anyone's interested in having this reservation transfered to them, drop me a note and we'll see if the hotel has a way of doing that. I don't mind keeping it in my name, but I'd ask the new reservee to lay down the first night's charge so's I don' get caught holdin' the bag if they welch...capice?

My teaching schedule, a work conference and my bank account have all conspired against my going to BGG.con this year.

When I cancelled my hotel reservations at the Westin City Center Dallas, I asked the reservations lady if the room would stay in the BGG.con block or be released to the general public. She said she believed it would be held for BGGers until Oct. 10, but that her computer was still showing the BGG block as sold out. She suggested that anyone interested in getting the room check back on Monday. I guess you could try calling the hotel directly, or call the reservation line and tell them that you know there were cancellations in the block. Maybe Aldie already has a handle on this.

OK, I'm going to go cry now. cry

Aldie,

Is there a standby list somewhere that we can get on to take the spot of one of the cancellations? If so, please sign me up!!! Thanks

Unfortunately I have to cancel for myself and my wife. It's a decision I've wrestled with (hence the late cancellation notice) but in the end it was unavoidable. We'll be there next year for sure!

I also have a room at the Westin that I will be releasing back into the BGG pool today or tomorrow, so Geeks without rooms should check in with the hotel soon.

I just found out my friend from Houston can't make it. How do we go about transfering his registration to another friend of ours and/or selling it to somebody on the waiting list?

Thanks,
Meerkat

Aldie, Already sent you email that I had to cancel. I hadn't noticed this thread before now.

Just making sure you got the email, since I didn't get a reply...
