    Reaper classes?

    Oh! Right, I hear ya'. I've (hopefully!) paid for all the classes listed on that schedule, so I didn't realize it might not reflect that.

    There's an excellent view that shows your entire schedule broken down by day. To find it: Use the GrowTix drop-down menu and select My Orders Click View Order for the original ReaperCon admission order Click View Schedule (I've noticed that if you instead click on the orders for the classes rather than the order for the ReaperCon admission ticket, the View Schedule on those orders isn't complete.) This schedule will look like this: The URL for this complete schedule will be in this format: https://purchase.growtix.com/schedules/user_view/[your personal code goes here]

    Reaper classes?

    Thank you for your help via email with the refund for a class I scheduled twice. I assumed I might hear back from Reaper sometime next week during business hours, but I was surprised to receive your message late on a Friday night--that's amazing customer service!

    Reaper classes?

    I wondered about this as well: the "Registration Count" for some of my classes is 0, and for others it's 1. And for my ReaperCon admission, it's 8. Does this mean anything? The different "schedule" screens at the GrowTix website are confusing. There's this one, which has the weird Registration Count and doesn't show one of the classes I paid for: https://purchase.growtix.com/my_schedules (you can find this one from the drop-down menu at the top of the GrowTix website) But then there's this other one, which does show all my classes: https://purchase.growtix.com/schedules/user_view/[your personal code goes here] (this one is harder to find: use the GrowTix drop-down menu and select My Orders, then click on the original ReaperCon admission order, then click View Schedule. I've noticed that if you instead click on the orders for the classes, the View Schedule on those orders isn't complete.)

    Reaper classes?

    I think I worked it out: I was able to purchase a registration for a replacement Sunday 10am class, "Blending with the Loaded Brush Technique (and NMM) (M. Klieman)". I don't know that I actually canceled my other duplicate class, however. I noticed that completed purchases don't show up when I do the "View Schedule." I believe Growtix uses this phrase to mean, "View the Schedule of classes you wish to purchase on this current order." Once you've made that purchase, they disappear from your schedule. The "Schedule" is really more of a website Shopping Cart. To see the classes actually purchased, one must go to the My Order page (from the drop-down box) and review the classes already paid for. At least, I think that's the way it works...

    Reaper classes?

    ...aaaaaand I screwed it up. After I posted this list, I realized I had registered for BOTH sessions of "Sculpting Details". @Reaper Ron, what's the process for canceling a class, and adding another? I tried to go into my schedule and Delete the Sunday 10am duplicate and add a different class for that session, but I can't tell if it worked. How does one check out a second time with the changes?

    Reaper classes?

    Done! I'm registered for: Total Metal!!! - A Complete NMM Bootcamp (I. Markon) Combined Arms Converting (J. Sutter) Green Stuff Toga Party (B. Piersol) Sculpting Details (Guthrie, Ridolfi) Painted Ladies (R. Bender) Painting Expressive Faces and Eyes (D. Schubert) Sculpting Details (Guthrie, Ridolfi) Dirty and Distressed (G. Zuniga) I'm excited!

    Reaper classes?

    One suggestion for next year: it appears that a lot of similar classes are offered in the same timeslot. For example, people who want to focus on Sculpting may find that they can't take certain sculpting classes by Julie Guthrie, Andrew Pieper, and Brien Piersol since they're all offered at the same time: Saturday, 10am. And for parents who want to bring their children, there are no "Reaper U Kids" classes during that timeslot... but there are two Reaper U Kids classes competing during the 1pm slot that afternoon (plus a third class geared for beginners). Same for the Dragon classes (both are offered Friday at 3pm), etc.

    Black Caps for Reaper Dropper Bottles

    They're available from a variety of manufacturers for pennies: you can buy 100 black caps (size 15/415) from General Bottle Supply for $7.50. However, the cheapest option for shipping for that order would probably be $15.00. Ouch!

    ReaperCon 2018 Admission Tickets Available Now!

    But does the $175 All-Access ticket (aka VIP) still include the catered dinners on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday?

    Auction Action for "Low Rollers"

    They already place Reaper Auction items on several of the tables near the stage. The only change needed would be to designate one of the tables as the "silent auction" table and put a slip of paper under each item where people can write their bids. No additional space required, no additional security.

    Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    Interesting that it's Thursday through Sunday on a holiday weekend. For me, it would be easier to take just a single day off if the event ran Friday through Monday. Then again, airports/flights are probably crazy on Labor Day.

    What would YOU like to see taught next year

    Some piano teachers give out 5" busts of famous composers, and they sell for about $5 at themusicsource.org. (note from OneBoot: click 'Gifts' then 'Statues and Busts.')

    Auction Action for "Low Rollers"

    The person at the registration desk looked at my itinerary and gave me a giant wad of ReaperBucks cash. He even rounded up! I pointed out that it was an error and I had received too much, but was told there was a calculation mistake and they were giving out the printed amount anyway. Or at least, that's what the person processing my registration did. I'm not complaining.

    So, who is excited about ReaperCon 2017

    Hmm. I'm exactly on schedule as of Year 2. Looks like I better start planning for an extra night next year... and my eventual move to Dallas. Seriously though, I hope I'm able to attend again next year: these last two years, Reapercon has fallen on the exact 4-day weekend of my job's "Fall Break", which has enabled me to attend. A week in either direction (or the return to the spring) would mean I couldn't attend.
