Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

Recommended Posts

Why did have to be Labor Day? One of the worst weekends for me when it comes to requesting time off. If 18 follows like 17, we had a inventory the week after that + major holidays are usually a big no when it comes to time requests.  

 

Even if the weekend after would have been fine. My enthusiasm for the Con has taken a hit that's  for sure.

Tentatively, I aim to be there. Getting the time off is no big deal, but hotel bookings are likely to be tricky. And plane bookings. Errrrgh...

Yeaaaah... Labor Day. That's a bit of a traditional family trip. And since I drive, coming back home up I25? That's going to cause me some pause.

 

Going to have to think hard on this, but right now I'm leaning "no".

And I won't know if we can go until the room blocks go up and we know what we need to budget... but Labour Day weekend.. holy pants.

I do know we're not likely to have anything scheduled  that would interfere.

Uh oh......Labor day weekend. Certain holidays are frowned upon when asking for them off.... We shall see. 

Yeah, I tend to fall in this category as well.  Makes it very  unlikely I can make it.

I may have to choose between RC and another family reunion in North Carolina.  2017 was our first in 25+ years, and everyone talked about a repeat this year.  Decisions, decisions...

For me, the change to Labor Day weekend adds new variables to consider.  At the moment, they seem to land mostly on the negative side, with increased travel expenses across the board, plus crowded roads, hotels & restaurants, plus a family event schedule conflict.  This will require more thought and planning, and family discussion.

My birthday weekend, not sure if I'm happy or sad. The kiddos usually start school that week, not happy about missing a first day :( We'll see... New venue looks really nice though.

@Dragoneye - There may be a lot of birthdays that need to be celebrated that weekend. :lol: 

 

Which actually makes it easier for me to come, since I can tell my husband “It’s for my birthday!!!”

was looking at the "normal" rates for the hotel, I'm hoping for a deep convention rate discount. Ive looked at other hotels in the area and they are already booked... may be to expensive for my budget this year :(
