    It matters because at the end of the week I'm going to audit that stuff and poke a few people who might be forgetting before I try calling down the thunder vis a vis other options. I really don't want anybody left out in the cold.

    I registered, though I left the forum ID blank. Will that be a problem?

    No, it's more important for the forum regulars. In any case don't worry about it.

    Is there anything at the Pre-PAX dinner for mom who DOES NOT play videogames at all?

    Finally! I got off my lazy butt and bought the tickets. If I can go to PAX, I hope to see all of you there! If not, I'll have a special treat in store after registration closes... but get your tickets now, we need you to sign up!

    hmmm... looks like i better sign up to this party.

    how many people have signed up so far? it doesn't say anything in the OP, and i'm too lazy right now to go through all the posts to get an estimate headcount (but maybe i'll do it later)

    Edit: so I got bored and counted all of them. I'd say somewhere in the neighborhood of 40? but more people could just be lurking. :/

    I think it's probably closer to 50 or 60 now, with all the +1s, etc. I think they were at 40 earlier last week

    tr0tsky is correct.

    Very astute tr0tsky - we've got 60 registrants (about 30% of our total ticket sales) so far. On a side note, your name really makes me miss...

    I'm crunching numbers to see if myself and the SO will be able to afford it.

    Will people be in Cosplay costumes for this event? Cause if we can go, we will be. :D

    Do it whytmage! It's going to be worth it. They have some devs coming to the event and such, it's going to be really neat! Go for it! =)

    Hmm... hopefully the registration will pickup as we get closer, we've got to hit that 200 number people! And every person that we get over 200 is getting their proceeds put into Child's Play! This is a great thing! Tell/bring your friends! =)

    Add two more to the list. The SO and I will be there*.

    *Even if one or both of us can't make it, it's worth the donation.

    Unfortunately, since we're not a 501(c)(3), donations are not tax deductible :(. You would have to donate directly to Childs Play to get the 501(c)(3) deduction for taxes. Robert, is that correct? Any donations we have above and beyond what's required to just operate the dinner will go directly to Childs Play though. I love it when our community gives back! :)

    I would have no problem at all with cosplay, I myself am going to be wearing either this or this depending on my mood that night. Granted I'm just eccentric.

    All ages. I suppose I should have Astayonix add that to the OP since this question has come up several times now.
