Hey someone had to put it up.   At this time, I'm just hoping for a in person Con & things going around the world are back to some semblance of normalcy. 

I actually liked the virtual con quite a bit. I was able to take all the classes I wanted without them filling up and I could see what the instructor was doing reasonably well.   I miss the

Odds are not in favour of me ever returning to Reapercon. So I am hopeful there is still a reasonable online presence in the years ahead, but having been there the once, I fully understand and share y

I actually caught myself making plans already a couple of times and wondering when we'd see a hotel reservation thread.....

 

I know for sure this time, I'm not gonna fall asleep 10 mins before the time it opens up.....what a hassle to get into the hotel last year for me.....

@Reaper Ron@ReaperAHawk@Reaper_Jon---assuming (fingers crossed) we are able to have in person Reapercon this year, are plans being made to snag all of/ as many rooms as possible at the Hilton convention center as opposed to the limited number available last year?

Thanks.

Here's hoping.  The package I received from Reaper today had a ReaperCon 2021 postcard advert.  Sept 2-5.

Speaking with persons unnamed a few days ago, they've begun some plans now but the in depth planning probably won't really spin up until after RVE. For most of it this probably isn't a problem, but I guess a lot of it depends on if there's another event going on at the same time (there was two years ago)

Hey it's the correct dates!!! :lol:

 

Holding out that we get a in person Con this year. Hopefully by the time it comes around, I'll actually have my C19 shots by then, who knows with the way things are going right now.

Yes, we are working on a F2F ReaperCon this year.

Every year we have a contract for most of their rooms....In fact every year they give us more than what is contracted for because I always go back to get more room blocks opened. After they have exhausted all the rooms they can give us, that's usually when I go to get other room contracts  at surrounding hotels in the area. Hope this helps.

If I recall correctly last time we started out with a rather large (compared to previous years) block of rooms, it's just that demand was VERY high that time.

Until last year RC had been growing at an explosive rate YOY.

I have no capability of estimating what this past year will have done to this years, but I could see something similar happening again in the near future.

Well with the news of Reaper trying to have a in person Con this year, I broke the news about asking for Labor Day weekend off. With the store having a bit more personal available, it sounds like my chances of going are actually pretty good this year. I'm gonna put in my days on the calendar on Sunday morning.

Does Reapercon happen the same dates each year?  I've never paid attention because going wasn't really an option before.  But if it's life this year it might be able to happen.

 

EDIT:

After posting this I thought of asking on the Discord.  I guess Labor Day weekend has been the norm for a while but we won't know for sure until it's announced.
