You said that auto's are to be paid in cash; do we need cash for the photo ops also, or will credit be available for those?

Thanx

Awesome stuff.

As you mentioned the pre selling, is there a rough estimate as to when that will happen? Just so I can make sure I have the funds there. Rather pay for these before I get out there as that means only need to save for autos more or less.

Cheers.

We can't get those going until Allan gets back from his overseas trip but we will definitely keep giving advance notice of the countdown to the start of sales.

RE AUTOGRAPHS AND PHOTOS

AM I BEING PARTICULARLY THICK.  I BELIEVE YOU ARE ACCEPTING CANADIAN DOLLARS FOR BOTH AND WON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT PURCHASING SOME US DOLLARS FOR THEM?

The photo ops are paid in advance via PayPal, so currency exchange will take place through the PayPal system.

The autograph sessions are paid in cash at the guests tables (unless they start having credit card machines at the tables - which, with the advent of smarphones and programs like Square, they might).  Some guests wish to be paid in USD, some in CAD.  Those are listed in the first post of this thread.

If you're travelling to the convention from outside North America, it would likely be beneficial to have both currencies on hand.  Or make good friends with someone from the US, bring your CAD, and make an equitable cash trade at the convention. =)

There used to be a currency exchange around the corner from the hotel (I used to cash my traveller's cheques there) - anyone know if it's still there?  I assume it would be, it was a good location surrounded by hotels.

Richard... Mr. Heyerdahl is missing from the price list entirely, but is listed on the Gatecon site as a guest.  Is he still coming and got missed (no idea how that would happen w/ a whole battalion of guests coming *g*) or did he cancel?

I can too. I'll have to convert some money to CAD anyway so it would help both of us.

To be totally honest, we don't know at the moment which is why he wasn't included. Hoping he can still make it but we won't know for certain until closer to the con. He hasn't cancelled but it's still uncertain...
