    Well, we do have the Pre-Pax Dinner afterwards and I'm sure a lot of people from the tour will be heading over there.

    Ok, I've got some schedule revisions and updated transportation info's here!

    I sent this all out in an email to everyone, i'll post it here too:

    For TRANSPORTATION!
    Some deals went south, some people had their kneecaps busted, the end result is, I had to revise the schedule and we're going to hire a bus for one day only. It was far too expensive otherwise, and we don't have high enough numbers to keep the costs down. So instead of charging you some pretty hefty charter bus ticket costs, we switched some things around to make it cheaper.

    Now, bus passes are set and fixed at $27 per person, which is less than they would have been otherwise. You will only have to buy a ticket if you will be attending the tour BOTH DAYS or WEDNESDAY ONLY. Those of you who will only be around for Thursday or part of Thursday won't be participating in our very own PAX-version of Speed, and the tradeoff is that you won't have to get a bus ticket.

    For everyone else, please, please check your email and follow the link to eye-shuh's paypal bus ticket site and purchase a ticket. We really need everyone to get their tickets before this SUNDAY, August 23rd, before NOON (or the cowboys will come'a shootin, or something..) so that eye-shuh can make the deal.

    If you are fundamentally unable to buy a ticket before this SUNDAY, August 23rd at NOON please email or PM me or eye-shuh immediately.


    Thank you all so much for being so supportive and wonderful, I'm so excited things are going as smoothly as they are so far!

    It wasn't the lack of notification, it was the timing :-P I got them as I was walking between meetings, otherwise I'd have paid right then.

    I've paid now! No beatings from eye-shuh necessary! *cower*

    Awesome, just wanted to make sure there weren't specific tour scheduled groups for those events that I couldn't jump in on. I'd really like to make the Underground tour.

    We were really hoping that people who wanted to tag along to certain things would buy a bus pass for the day, even if they are riding along separately. Although I can understand that you'll be working and may or may not be able to join us at any certain stop. So, we'd really, really appreciate it if you got a pass for Wednesday, but we can't stop you from "showing up" in places. Although eye-shuh could probably beat you for it....

    And, once again, for everyone who hasn't yet, pleeeeeeeease:

    Please visit eye-shuh's paypal, located here: http://staff.washington.edu/ikmz/mmt.html

    We need everyone to please, please, please buy your pass before NOON on SUNDAY, AUGUST 23rd!

    Get it done now, before the weekend (and the drinking) starts!!!!

    Soooo I just paid for a pass, but it says it's shipping to my old address in Bend. Is it actually shipping anything at all?

    It is NOT an option to pay when you get there. You must pay TODAY if you want to come on the Wednesday tour. We will have a check list with real names and forum names to check off as we're loading on the bus.

    We can't stop people from following the tour in a car and not paying for the bus (if that's your master plan), but you should know that that would make you a dick. Being a dick is against PAX policy. Plus, you would miss out on riding in our awesome party bus, and I can't guarantee that other attendees wouldn't shun you.

    Not to mention that Batman will be very disappointed at those stragglers who do not pay by noon today. Yes, Batman will be on the bus with us and you do not want to disappoint Batman.
