First Con...
« on: May 11, 2011, 10:21:19 AM »

So, I'm going to try and go to my first Canadian Joe Con.

What do I need to know about registration? (ex: deadlines, if they are available on site, how to pre-reg)

How can I ensure that I get the Con Set of toys?

Thanks!

Most of what you need is posted at http://www.canadianjoecon.com

There is no 100% guarantee that you will get a con set.

as long as you get in line before 6am you should be fine.  The earlier the better!

I remember last year guys were lining up at midnight and by the time they got into the con they were very tired and a lot of them past by my booth and forgot what they were looking for.

I actually was so tired that I walked straight by your booth the first time...

In the past 2 yrs, people could get a set if they show up on time. I don't think you need to show up as early as some might suggest. An hour or two before it starts and you should be fine. Especially since there's more sets and some die-hards took the pre-register option. Meaning fewer sleep zombies at the front of the line...

Yeah, I saw that, but I'm new. I like the idea of not having to worry...

I was doing pretty good for staying up all night  the next day,  and I was selling.   But then again  that is pretty much my usual Friday to Saturday :)   

God bless RealBoss and his Triscits though:)   They were what kept me going in the afternoon.
