While I am not 100% sure, but Convergence was booking the second hotel a for rooms earlier this year. As Scott or Bob about when they book a suite for the USS Nokomis, but I think you have to be ready about a year in advance...

We have a couple of TC Maker members that are members of the GPS, so we can get the details from them, but we would have to move fast.

Party rooms for this year are booked. They have to be reserved through the concom, not through the hotel. And they're not cheap -- the rooms in the atrium (the main party zone) are $225/night; bed removal costs $75 or $100 (I don't remember the exact price for this year).

I was part of a couple of parties at Convergence over the years. We almost had one last year (2011) for IGDA but got bumped from our room by MiniCon, because apparently we had been assigned to their ground floor room by the new party chair. Since our party plan required a ground floor room (with the porch area) we decided to not pursue it. They are fun to throw though.

What should be done though if someone is registered to go to MiniCon this weekend is to put up a bunch of those awesome Minne-Maker-Faire posters. Image http://tcmaker.org/faire/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Minne-Faire-2012-FINAL.pdf

My Fellow Makers:
Minicon starts this Friday. I'm still looking for some help bringing stuff from the Hack Factory to the hotel Friday morning, and coming back Sunday or Monday.
If I have to, I'll work the TCMaker table in the science room with what I can carry on the bus, but that's my last choice.

Hey Vince, thanks so much!

The science room opens at 4pm on Friday, so I'd like to get there by 330 or so at the latest.

I'll be coming to the Hack Factory from downtown saint paul.

I can get to the shop by around 10 am, but there's a bit of flex time in the day.

What would work best for you time wise?

If needed, I can get to the shop considerably earlier to load up and roll to the hotel.

Let me know what fits best with your day, and thanks again.

Riley

Most Excellent, Thanks Vince!

I'll see you at the space at 10am Friday.

Thanks much, this really makes a difference.

Does anyone have anything they'd like me to bring to show off their stuff?

Let me know.
