    Thursday looks awesome. I'm glad to see that the EMP is Wednesday this year.

    I'd love for us to do something after meeting up with the CCST, but we will want to plan that. Everyone from the CCST goes to their respective hotels leaving the MMT people. We should all stay together and do something cool.

    Yay! Two questions though.

    (1) I don't have a cell number per say. I have a work provided BB that will not be travelling with me since it's Canadian only. I'll be picking up an AT&T Go Phone when I get into Seattle. Can I add my cell# to my sign-up later?

    (2)

    Do we greet the CST as well as the CCST? Want to know if I should prepare to welcome my fellow Edmontonians after their long drive.

    No worries about the cell phone, you can PM it to me or MasterHelios when you get it, otherwise as long as you make it to the morning meetup you'll be fine!

    I thought someone answered the CST question already, but I must have been thinking of somthing else. Where do they stop and when? Unless it's at or near the WSCTC or close by, and around the same time, we probably won't have time. It'll be up to all of you!

    Crap, we won't be there early enough on Wednesday to meet up with you guys for the Underground Tour, and Brian and I did all the Thursday stuff last time we were there. :(

    If anyone else is going to miss that or other Wednesday stops, let me know, maybe Brian and I can meet up with you Thursday after the rest of the MMT is more or less done.

    You should definitely add the Pre-PAX Dinner! ;)

    I may be coming to this, actually! It'll depend on a whole lot of things. I'm pretty excited for the prospect, though.

    Here are the new changes, as seen in the OP:

    After 2 PM: Break time, split off into smaller groups to hit the places we missed or that you want to see, take a shower, get all glammed up for:

    5:00 PM - 8:00 PM: PRE-PAX DINNER! Thread and Registration here: Pre-PAX Dinner!
    8:00 PM - DRUNK O'CLOCK: Triwizard Drinking Toohnament! Thread HERE (if you're not already signed up, it might be too late!


    ____

    MMTers traditionally also tend to sign up for the Pre-PAX Dinner, which I highly, HIGHLY suggest! It's a great way to wind down the day and get some food, and meeting even MORE people before PAX!!!

    The Triwizard Drinking Tournament... well... it speaks for itself, really..... ;)

    Apologies for the sparse info... this year we're keeping it suuper simple, while keeping extra costs down. The only cost will be entrance fees into the locations we are visiting (that charge entrance fees).

    The costs broken down are:

    Attractions/Entry fees:
    -Seattle Aquarium
    Adult $16 (Group rates pending)
    -Underground Tour:
    Adults: $15, Students $12
    -Experience Music Project and the Sci-Fi Museum
    Adult $15, Students $12
    (TOTAL: $40 - $46)

    Transportation Fees:

    - Approximately $10 (extra just in case) for bus and Monorail


    Food/Souvenirs/Snacks/etc:

    - Completely depends on what you want to spend


    SO, essentially the base rate for the tour itself is around $60, per person (totally worth it!) And then more for food, etc.

    Is it okay to just say I hope to come along? I mean, i want to be there but it depends on what flight I actually catch out there. :D
    Can I just show up if I am in town on time on Thursday?

    Exactly. Bawls and PAX are a combination made in heaven. A combination that must be taken with care, but always in excess.

    I'm psyched, it'll be good to see you guys again! This year I didn't go early because I thought I'd still be in my corporate-esque job... now that I'm working with my friends (which admittedly, has its own share of drama =) ), the schedule should be flexible enough that I can make it for the whole thing next year... as long as that business doesn't go under too. =)

    Forum lurker here. Was at PAX Prime last year, my first.

    Just sent my sign up in yesterday for the MMT. Go easy on me, the MMT isn't like Rocky Horror where you have to do something to the virgins, is it?

    Signed myself and my +1 up for Thursday. We went on the MMT 2 years ago and loved it- so we're coming back again this year with our buddy PsychoPez! (who is much less psycho than advertised).

    Just signed myself up for both days. I went on the MMT at PAX East this year and it was great to go sight seeing with other folks instead of trying to wing it completely by myself. On a side note, is anyone arriving early in the week (I'm arriving Monday afternoon) interested in meeting up to do/see anything not currently listed on the MMT?

    There are quite a few locals around who are totally willing to hang out (If I can, I'm usually around) and show the city off.

    Also, if you're coming to the MMT, don't forget to sign up for the Pre-PAX Dinner! It's a great cap to the day. :D

    You can join up at any point. This is especially true since we'll be relying solely on public transportation this year, so an accurate count and/or payment won't be as crucial as it was in years past.

    Be sure to sign up and include your email address and phone number so we can have your contact info!!!

    I just started up a brand new MMT TWITTER! It's @PAX_MMT start following today!!! I'll have updates and reminders until the tour, and then I'm hoping someone can take over and tweet the tour route and locations as we go along.
