With only a few days left until Opening Ceremonies at FE 2013, you're doubtless anxious to get into the con and have several days of furry fun! With even more people anticipated than last year, here are our tips to make the process smoother, regardless of whether you've preregistered already or will be registering at the door.
If you're preregistering, pick up your badge early! We will be offering early badge pickup on Thursday night in the lobby — so if you're checking in early, come on by and avoid the lineups on Friday morning!
Registration will be open from 9 am until 11 pm on Friday and Saturday, and from 9 am until noon on Sunday. (Note that in the evening hours, you may have to register at Con Ops instead. We'll post signage to direct you.)
Also, if you're a supersponsor, be prepared to make an important decision. Supersponsors will have the option to pick between one of two badge designs from our Guests of Honour!
Be sure to bring ID! To register and pick up your badge, we need a piece of identification that has your name, picture, and date of birth. Any of the following are fine:
- Driver's license
- Ontario Photo Card (or similar from other provinces/states)
- Provincial health card
- Permanent resident card
- Other photo ID, such as a BYID card, etc.
If you're not sure whether you have proper ID, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org immediately!
And if you're under 18 as of the beginning of the con (i.e. birthdate after March 8, 1995), make sure to bring the signed Parental Consent Form signed by your parent or legal guardian.
Even if you haven't preregistered, you can still register and pay at the door! These are the admission rates that we'll be charging:
Attending - $45
Sponsor - $75
Supersponsor - $140 (note that this does not include a custom dogtag or your name in the conbook)
Single Day - Friday - $20
Single Day - Saturday - $25
Single Day - Sunday - $20
When you're in line you'll be asked to full out a registration form. To make sure everyone can get to line that much quicker, make sure that it's filled out by the time you get to the front.
We hope to see lots of people passing through Registration on their way to an enjoyable con. Enjoy!
