It's an annual ritual, I know, but one I could live without.

We're 5 weeks from Baitcon and we haven't come near making our minimium
numbers as yet. If you're planning on coming, PLEASE rsvp asap?

Thanks,

The invitation is now live and registration is now open for our 2nd take at Baitcon XXVII, D.M.I.C.

We're back at The Abode again, and as promised last year the dates are 23-26 June.

Details, the invitation, and the reg link, as ever, are at http://wp.baitcon.org/

We hope you can make it! If you have any questions, please ask away, here, or in mail to bcc.

JB and all of BCC


[community profile] baitcon is also a good place to chat.

I know I say this every year - including noting that I say this every year - but it's more true than ever at the moment:
We have a minimum we need to be able to afford to do this, while paying our contract with the site and we need that minimum well in advance.

That deadline is approaching. Please! If you're intending to come to Baitcon this year, hie yourself to the website and register soon.

Hope to see you there!

The invitation/registration for Baitcon XXVII is up and running.
We invite you to stop by wp.baitcon.org to check it all out.

If you've never been to Baitcon before, please contact us before registering.

I'd also like to call out right now that we're less than 2 months out from the date now... As ever, we have a minimum registration number that we have to meet by a month out to be sure we're able to do it, so please register soon!

I hope to see you there!

Baitcon 26 will be held on August 28th-31st, 2015
at the Mountain Campground of the Abode of the Message.

Why Change the Date?
The severe snow and ice this winter has impacted everything in the Northeast – roads, public transportation, roofs, buildings of all sorts (both inside and out), school schedules, etc. Last week, the Abode staff shared some concerns about the potential impact to our site due to the weight of the snow on various buildings and structures and also the possible ground conditions in June. As we are always the first event of the Mountain Campground season, many assessments and repairs are often in-progress during our event. This year, it seems more than likely that many spaces may be unusable even in late June.

Why August?
This was the only available Abode’s only other available weekend this summer. Our new date, much like our traditional date, is sandwiched between many wonderful things. This year, Baitcon 26 will be right after Worldcon and right before Burning Man and Labor Day weekend. This unique date offers us all a chance to experience the Mountain Campground at a different time in the summer, celebrate before kids go back to school.

Registration will open in late May this year. The same go/no-go condition we always have for Baitcon will still apply despite the date change: we need at least 120 paid adult registrations to meet our minimum attendance guarantee and go forward with the event.

We know that many of you many have already planned around our traditional late-June date. We’re sorry about that and we hope you can still join us this year. If you have questions, please email us via this address: exec AT baitcon DOT org

Baitcon XXV - A Song Of Ice Cream and Bonfires - will be held on June 27th-30th, 2014 at the Mountain Campground of the Abode of the Message.

We've gotten the website poked and prodded and we have the registration system up and waiting for all you lovely people. Take a look at wp.baitcon.org or all the details, including how to register.

It's not very different, but take a look over the whole thing and see how much of it you actually remember. :)

If you haven't been before, read it over and follow the instructions. :)

We hope to see you there!

(If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us via email at info dash {this-year} at baitcon dot org.)

If you follow [community profile] baitcon (on LJ. I'm not going to go lookup the cross-site syntax right now), you'll've heard this a few days ago, but if not...

http://wp.baitcon.org/

Hope to see you there!

I know I post this every year, but this year it seems even more necessary:

If you're planning on coming to Baitcon, please RSVP?
We're still under our minimum and the dates to know if that's a problem are fast approaching.
jbsegal: (Default)
Somehow I didn't post this here.

Reg is open. Hit the site for all the details. :)

Hope to see you there!
jbsegal: (Default)
... and - perhaps for the 1st time ever - I don't think I'm going to manage to catch up with LJ.

If you said anything interesting, or if you said anything at all about Baitcon, let me know?

I'll screen. Tell me if you mind if I unscreen.

It's just about 16 days til we come together for a 3-day weekend full of ice cream, camping, dancing and so much more. We're excited to see all of you and to return to our mountain home! If you're not yet registered but pondering it, please do so SOON. The prices go up on the 18th, shopping begins on the 19th so the sooner the better!

A bunch of information has been added or updated on the website today: tentative menu, plans for merriment, what-to-bring, kids ice-cream, etc. Whether you're a new attendee this year or a seasoned Baitcon veteran, please be sure you visit the website (wp.baitcon.org/baitcon-xxii/) and read the various pages you'll find under each pull-down tab on the main page. There is important information there for you, some of it you're expected to know before arrival and a bunch of gosh-darn helpful stuff. Email us BEFORE June 20th if you have questions about anything.

Please consider carpooling! Start making your travel plans today and check out the ride-board to offer a lift or look for one!

Have questions or concerns? Ideas for something fun to do at Baitcon? Have a ton of marshmallows you want to donate to the smores supplies? Want to offer to help make breakfast or play music during the contra dance? Comment here or email us via info dash 2011 at baitcon dot org

Fri/Sat midnight the price for Baitcon goes up - and that's for us receiving the money.
If you pay after, we ask that you pay more.

Please reg AND pay soon?

And if you've reg'd and not paid, well... :)

So, Friday night I came home in a bad mood and that, combined with the remote system on my car freaking out a few days before and me not dealing meant that I left my car unlocked on the street outside my house.

This morning I came out and figured this out because my car had been lightly ransacked, but no window was broken.
The Glove box had been emptied, the shit in the back seat had been somewhat re-shoveled. Stuff like that.

For the most part nothing had been taken. The change was still in its drawer, the 2 different 1/8" stereo->FM transmitter frobs were left behind, etc. etc.

Eventually I noticed the thing that was missing... the extra Baitcon shirts that had been riding around in the back of my car waiting for me to deal with them.

So, if you see anyone around Camberville that has a Baitcon shirt who shouldn't? Yeah... take a picture. Call me. Something.

{sigh}

Baitcon is inheriting one of Andor's old fridges and we need to haul it out from the 3rd floor tonight.

I'm hoping to do this around 8, subject to final clearance from Andor. I don't expect it will be TOO hard as it's not a huge fridge, but in case it's more wearing than expected, between 1 and 3 more people would be good. (Well, 1 is absolutely necessary. I can't do it alone. :)

Give me contact info (mail is fine) if you can help so I can tell you if the time changes, else plan on coming by LSE or meeting up at Andor.

Thanks...

So, it's time to order more Baitcon (BCXX, NOT BCXXI) tshirts - from now through June 6.

Please wander over to the website - http://wp.baitcon.org/2010/05/24/the-new-tshirt-order-please-send-us-mail/ - read the post and do the right thing.

(Although I say pay in cash on site, paying by check or cash beforehand is also fine.)

Rather than duplicate it here:
http://www.baitcon.org/2009/05/31/531-update/

(And the 'posts' have an RSS feed available, too. Don't add it here, though, please?)

T-shirt sales are well below expectations. Is this a conscious decision on everyone's part, or is there just lameness?

We've made our minimums!
Yay!
(Not that people shouldn't keep responding! ;)

(BTW, as we haven't been totally clear: We're asking people to _pay_ by the deadlines, not to just rsvp. We're also asking people to use the registration forms 1x per person, rather than just to reply for multiple people.)

I know I'm jinxing myself by posting this, but I don't know in which direction.... where are all the RSVPs?

I'm trying not to panic here... it's only been a couple weeks... but still.
