Even though Dragon Con ended a mere 2 weeks ago, it is time to look ahead to Dragon Con 2009. The 2009 dates are Sept 4 - 7, 2009.
The next year memberships have gone up, up, up but it is still worth it to buy early. A Dragon*Con membership covers all four days, all panels, events, demonstrations, concerts, performances, contests, snacks and munchies in our Consuite (as available) and a host of other activities. For more details, see the Dragon Con website…
The current Membership price for Dragon*Con 2009 is $60 until 11/14/2008.
I estimate the door price for 2009 will be $100 / 4 Days. As always, I will be purchasing multiple memberships as a club during the first purchasing phase. Doing this gives us an additional $5 off the lowest membership price, which makes each club membership $55. The due date is November 14th. So if you’re interested, I need all payments and membership forms by Monday, November 13th. Club memberships must be submitted at the same time with a single payment source. The confirmation postcards are then sent separately to each member. We need at least 10 memberships to constitute a 'club' and get the discount. Just send me a message if you interested.
If you think you are going but are not sure or only plan on attending one day, I still encourage you to purchase your memberships now. Yes, the line for pre-reg will be long but for D*C 2008, just a Saturday badge was $50.
Just a note to the die-hards out there, Dragon Con has opened Eternal Memberships again.
Codes for hotels have not been officially posted. Although, the Hyatt is taking reservations for D*C 2009 weekend; you just have to let them know you are with DragonCon. The number for Hyatt is 404-577-1234
I attempted making reservations at the Marriott but they have not released the rooms yet. I will be monitoring the Dragon Con website for Marriott codes and will post when they become available.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE go ahead and reserve a room if you THINK you might want one. It takes a credit card to reserve the room but, unless the Hyatt policy has changed, nothing is charged to your card prior to your arrival and you have until 3pm on the day before your arrival to cancel!
