Hey everyone. I'll be offering to act as proxy at Pax West. This year, most of my group is unable to travel from Boston to Seattle so I'll be shorthanded. I really enjoy acting as proxy but this PAX will be a bit more of a challenge to balance running proxy and enjoying the show. However, this will be my 12th time acting as proxy and I'd like to keep the proxy going.

The following is probably not popular but I hope it' is understandable. For the reasons below, I would like to try a 20% surcharge (previously 10%) on all purchase pins.

1) Sales tax - In recent years, an increase in vendors are charging sales tax. In Seattle, the sales tax is 10.25%.
2) Proxy is growing - The number of participants for proxy is growing. The process has taken a lot more effort over the years with organizing pre PAX, during PAX, and packing and shipping orders post PAX.
3) Personal costs to attend PAX - The surcharge will help me offset my expenses with attending PAX between travel, lodging, badges, etc.

If you've made it this far into the message, THANK YOU! Thank you for taking the time to read this. I look forward in helping you proxy the show.
