I'm buying memberships before the price goes up. It'll be a while before I commit to plane tickets, though.

Ditto. I think this will be a pretty big gathering, maybe not as big as Chicago but lots of us will be there. /smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

I'll be there. And I'll probably be at Shamrokon in Dublin (the Eurocon) the week before. I suggested that someone arrange a tour of GoT sites around Belfast before or after, but don't know if it will work out.

Shamrokon is the week after Worldcon.

But I hear rumours that there might be something happening the weekend before Worldcon that would be well worth attending.....

DalThor and I are hoping to be there. I'm not sure we will buy our memberships before May though. Something to consider.

As do I - I got the progress report a few days ago, I had a quick look through the printed member list and the BwB count was already into double figures, and that's just the people whose real names I know.

I am so going, I live in London so it would be shame to miss it. I don't have a membership yet but will definitely buy one.

Sorry, but since this will be my first time going, I just have some noob questions:
Is membership limited? I assume loncon has a limit capacity.
Does membership assure admittance to loncon or are there additional tickets you have to buy?

Well yes it is limited in the sence that there will be a maximum capacity the buildings can hold due to fire regs. But I serriously doubt they will sell out (and if its looking like they will there will be plenty of warning)
membership is addmitance to the Con and all programming (you may have to pay extra for any materials you use in workshops if you attend them)
You may want a hotel room or some other form or accomidation, since the parties often finish late....

1) Membership is not limited at WorldCon, and even if it gets double the typical number of attendees, I am pretty sure the available conference space could handle it. Only upper limit is for fire regulations and I highly doubt WorldCon will reach those kinds of numbers.

2) Membership is for LonCon and most of its associated activities. There will be convention-organized outings, I am sure, to places such as the Greenwich Observatory -- those you will need to sign up for and pay extra.

Further, BWB events are funded by each member of the BWB in attendance. We're doing one public party for sure, and we're currently researching options for a private party as well. We won't have that data until at least January of next year, however.

It's definitely a possibility. I'll have finished university by then and will most likely be back up that way anyway, so I can travel into London easily. I won't be able to afford a membership before the price increase - thanks Pebble for the information on that! - so I'll just have to suck it up and pay more when I can eventually afford it.

Big con, scary! I hope nobody hates me enough for me to be unwelcome.. /crying.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':crying:' />

hmmm being a poor uni student and unless I've got you mixed up in my mind with someone else who would like to be a non-smoker but doesn't want to quit right now..... I'll make you a deal.

If your smoke free by the 30th of April I will buy you your membership. if you take it up again before the con you can either pay me back when you can afford it (if you still able to attend) or I can sell the membership to someone else.






Oh and Adz if your still smoking then, I'll poke my tounge out at you. /wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />
