1.  The classes I am interested in are already full. Is it really worth coming to ReaperCon if I can't take classes?

2.  How close is the hotel to the venue? Can I walk there? What about restaurants, are they within walking distance?

3.  Where can I go to find other enthusiasts that want to ride-share / room-share?

4.  My ticket to the con came with dinners, am I required to attend? If not, can I give my voucher to someone else?

I tried to book a room but the hotel says there are none left. Is there another option?

5.  I have crowd anxiety. What kind of attendance numbers do you expect? If I feel overwhelmed, what kind of options do I have, or what advice would you offer?

6.  I have health issues that require a caregiver be close by. If I take a class / game, would my caregiver be allowed to sit with me?

7.  Reaper is AWESOME and ReaperCon is the BEST! Could I help with setup or tear-down? How can I help?

I' officially adding a 4th rule to this thread.

 

Stop prefixing your questions with numbers, bullets, etc.

 

I'm copy pasting this list and It's annoying to have to remove everybody's prefix to get to the actual useful data.

Now in Reaperbryan-friendly format:

 

How do I recognize the organizers on site? (they mingle a lot)

How do I recognize the artists? (they also mingle a lot)

How do I recognize the class teachers?

How are the classes/classrooms organized?

Will there be schedules posted?

What's the painting contest?

Why are there so many categories?

Can I enter as many miniatures as I want?

Can I enter the same miniature in different categories?

What's the point in entering the contest if pros with much more experience and talent are allowed to compete?

(I know the answer to some of these, but they might be useful for someone who's never attended ReaperCon (or any other con) before)

 

Will events such as Speed Paint and Sophie Says be listed on the schedule? Where will they be?

 

What options are there for water? (drinking fountain, purchase, etc.)

 

Is there public wifi available on-site?

 

Are outside food and drinks allowed at the con?

 

Can I take pictures of the painting contest entries?

 

Can I take pictures of other con attendees? Event staff?

 

Where is the Lost and Found?

 

Is there a quiet location on-site where I can go if I'm feeling overwhelmed?

 

Huzzah!

Posted (edited)

A few questions I've seen pop up a few times:

 

Can I take videos on my phone of the con or classes?

Are we able to "live stream" via Facebook or do any of the (Google) hangouts while at the con site?

What payment methods are accepted at the con for purchase from Reaper and the other vendors?

Can you give me a general range of how much money I should save up for to take this trip and have fun?

Do we get name badges?

How do we find our forum friends more easily?

What supplies do I need to bring to hands-on classes?

 

I don't recognize the names of some of the instructors, do you have a list of their Reaper forum or other online painting noms de plume?

 

Is there a waiting list for full classes?

Is there a way to check on site if spots have opened up in a class?
