  1. IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING REAPERCON 2020
     
    April 29, 2020

    Today, the ReaperCon staff met to discuss the status of ReaperCon 2020. It is with great disappointment that we unanimously decided to cancel ReaperCon 2020 in light of the current global situation.

    The safety of our guests, instructors, volunteers and staff is and will always be our primary concern.

    We want to thank everyone for their support of ReaperCon2020. We will miss sharing our love of painting and gaming with all of you, who we have come to consider our extended family.

    We will begin processing full refunds through Growtix beginning May 2020. If you have any questions regarding your refund, please contact [email protected]

    BUT WAIT...NOW THE GOOD NEWS!

    Rather than just wait until next year for the next ReaperCon, we’re going to hold our first virtual ReaperCon Live Online instead!

    At this time, this virtual ReaperCon Live Online is being planned to be held this year on Labor Day Weekend, September 3-6 2020.

    Will there be a Swag Bag?
    YES!

    Will there be a VIP Bag?
    YES!

    Will there be online classes?
    YES!

    Will I have to go anywhere to watch ReaperCon Live Online?
    NO! It’s all online! Just stay at home on your phone, laptop, or computer!

    Will I have to pay to watch?
    NO! It’s all FREE! The only things you’ll have to pay for are
    optional fun things, like class kits, Swag Bags, and VIP Bags.

    Please stay tuned for more details as they evolve.

    If you have any questions, please send them to [email protected].com

    And as always, thank you for your support!!!

    @ReaperAHawk Has there been any discussion about contingency plans for Reapercon related to the coronavirus pandemic?  If it’s still an issue by then will the con be cancelled or is it possible it would be postponed?

     

    At this time, there is no contingency plan. We are hoping it won't be an issue in September, but we will make an announcement, if needed.

    Don't even understand how buying is different from registering...?

     

    So for the past 2 years, we were using Growtix for classes this way:

     

    First you would "register for a class". What that did is add it to your "schedule" only to build your itinerary for ReaperCon. Then you would go back and then purchase your seat in that class. It was a two step process to buy your class ticket. May people did like this , yet others did not. Many people just built their schedule on their own and thought the two step process was "clunky".

     

    So this year we are thinking using Growtix this way:

     

    You will need to look at the schedule of classes we offer and build your own schedule offline. We will post the schedule of classes on all social medias as well as ReaperCon.com. It may also be in the Growtix system to view as well.  Then after  approx. 2 weeks ( to let everyone see the schedule), we will release the classes for purchase to the VIP ticket holders first. (* this is a VIP perk), then all the classes open up to everyone after 24-48hrs. So instead of clicking  "register for classes" first and then going to buy the ticket, you would just go to the list and purchase them directly from the navigation button on the landing page of our Growtix page

    You will no longer have a class schedule on Growtix, you wil need to list those class tickets you bought  to your phone's calendar or use the pull down list on your order confirmation page to "add to apple wallet", "print" or "send to phone" options

     

    Hope that explains it. I may have gone into too much detail, but we think using the direct buy class ticket will decrease confusion...everyone will just build their own schedule for ReaperCon based on the classes they took as well as games and events they sign up for. But I'm guessing most people do this anyways. ::):

    I am frustrated every year with the Growtix schedule. It is very clunky and unintuitive. I would prefer doing my schedules offline by myself rather than their system. I do that anyway since their app has never worked for me. I have never been able to log on so resort to using the website over the phone’s browser. But that’s only if I have to. I instead just put the info into my phone’s calendar and use that.

     

    The App issue was us....Ok me...I was customizing it last year and never finished it....just too much at the time was on my plate ..therefore I always set the App to "inactive" status so it wasn't fully functional. I will do better this time and have it ready this year.

    Excellent!

     

    I noticed they don't list the La Quinta hotel on the booking form.  Will Falcon Transportation be going there as well or only to the first three hotels?

     

    Just talked with Falcon Transportation and they will add the La Quinta to that pull down menu on their page. Good Catch, Thanks!

    Last I heard on Reaper Thursday night they were working on a Airport shuttle for Reapercon. $50.00 from airport to Embassy suites, $20.00 for return to Airport? Rons wife was setting this up. So $70.00 roundtrip less than a rental car! Still waiting for Reaper to confirm this.

     

    Yes, I talked to them today and they said they would have the booking link up tomorrow....*fingers crossed*.  As soon as I hear something, I will post it here first....then on all other social media platforms.

    A question for @ReaperAHawk.

     

    I don't know if I can make it this year or not. What happens if I get the VIP package, but have to cancel at the last minute? Can I get the whole package shipped?

     

    We can refund up to 30 days prior to the show. The only way to have a VIP bonus bundle shipped to you is to purchase it after the con on reapermini.com (if there are quantities leftover after the show)

    I wanted to get her a full regular swag bag so she can get the paints and other minis.

     

    We went last year and she had swag bag envy because there wasn’t as much stuff in the kid’s bag.

     

    Login to your Growtix account or use your admission pass confirmation email to get there (there's a link)...Click on extra swag and add an additional regular swag bag to your cart. Hope this helps

    There aren't swag bags available to purchase now. I want to get one for my 10 year old who is getting a child pass.  Will they be added later?  Also, will they cost the same as an adult 4-day pass?  If they are, I can just get her one of those.

     

    The kids pass comes with a kids' swag bag....or are you meaning an additional regular swag bag ?

    Little clunky, but I made my purchase.

     

    GrowTix?  It just doesn't get easier.

     

    Sorry that was us...we had issues with a couple tickets so we had to move things for better visibility which may have contributed to the "Clunkiness"

    If I purchase a VIP pass today and then discover I won’t be able to go, what options do I have?

     

    You can receive a refund up to 30 days prior to the show.

    So, the links should appear in a couple of hours?

     

    Yes on reapercon.com or reapermini.com

  12. New this year will be a new program to use your ReaperBucks and not just at the Auction. More details to come. We are still ironing out details on this new program so we can't report anything just yet....but just wanted to let you know that ReaperBucks will have more uses than before.

    Can my friends who are looking at regular four day tickets buy the pizza dungeon pass separately, or is VIP the only way to get it?

     

    Yes, they can add on the $10 Meet and Greet ticket to the regular 4-day pass with swag bag.

  14. I just received confirmation with Embassy Suites that any canceled rooms in our room block (ReaperCon rate) ARE going back into our room block inventory for attendees to book at the ReaperCon rate. They did also say, that as soon as a room is canceled, that someone does pick it up and book that room. They are watching it everyday. If someone canceled a room outside the block, then that room would become available, but not at the ReaperCon rate. Hope this helps!
