I'm trying to figure out how many days and in what areas I want to sign up.  I'm interested in several areas and have some questions;

1.  Registration  - I would also like to do the Harbour Cruise.  Would this be doable?
2.  Monitor doors/panels - I'm assuming that if I'm "on duty" I wouldn't be able to take pictures, right?  Would it be possible to sit down during some panels so I could shoot some photos?
3.  I'll be arriving in Van on the 6th.  Would help be needed prior to the 8th for set-up?  If my friend can't make it, I would be willing to help with that.

There are a few other areas I'd like to work.  Maybe I should just check "wherever needed"   :)

Thanks
PamK

Hi Pam,

Yes the reg desk will be open before and after the cruise to let those going on it register so will also be the chance to work the desk as well - unless of course absolutely everybody wants to go on the cruise in which case we may have to do registration en route hehe.

Seriously though, depending on the uptake for the cruise, we will likely set aside a certain hour or so after we get back that will be registration for cruise goers only. Those not taking part in the cruise will be encouraged to register during the cruise hours.

Once the panel is underway it should be fine for you to get some shots in...just remember it will be non flash after the first five minutes.

Will definitely let you know about any pre-event help. Thanks.

I didn't even think about the whole working registration and going on the cruise thing, thanks for asking that!

Thanks for the consistent awesome information! I'm getting the feeling that you've co-organized a few of these guys  ;)

 Submitted application.  I forgot to add that I am willing to help out with pre-con activities.  Also, I'm not leaving Vancouver until the 14th, so there is a chance that I could help with post-con activities too.

Richard...
I think my mother and I will be there on around the 5th or 6th! If you are needing some set-up help I am willing to give up some time...
We are staying a few days after so that is going to be our 'sightseeing' time but I am happy to give up time before the con :D!

Floating registration?  That sounds like either fun or chaos... tho, those can be interchangeable. =)

We've done that before - had registration open and ONLY let folks going to a pre-con event go through until they were all set, then opened it up for everyone else; or had the pre-con event folks roll through once they return. 

Registration is open every day of the con too - for a few hours anyway.

What if at registration we had an express lane for those that are on the cruise? That is, if we start to see a back up of any kind at reg. Just an idea!

Sounds like a good idea. 😊

Very good idea.

It will really depend on the uptake for the cruise. If we get say 400 sign up for it we would need the whole desk to get them registered before or after the cruise.

Will know more later on.

Do you think we will really have 400 attendees for the cruise?

A lot of it will depend on the overall price of the cruise, but anything is possible!

I'm guessing that if you have put your name down to 'do' registration then there isn't much point in going on the cruise? Hmmm.... Decisions, decisions!
