    Thnx to everyone, from the support i'm seeing i'm sure through donations and work i could save up enough money. The only problem is i need an adult to go with me, and well, my parents don't want to spring for Las Vegas, as were not doing too well financially at the moment, there's me and 2 other people that i know personially in my area that want to go to defcon, for all of us the problem is we need an adult, and i really don't know where i'll find one, lol But i will set up the PayPal fund, worst case senairo i'll have to put the money twords hope or def con in the next few years. I say hope because my parents said that we maby could go to NY next year and i could go to the con. They also said i would have a better chance at going because it is much closer. But i'm hopefully going to a con next year or the year after if not this year. Sigh....

    So if anyone lives in NS and would be willing to be my guardian.... lol, plz...
    I really don't think anyone on here will be your guardian. Best shot is to find someone of age whom your family and or you know. And convince them to attend Defcon. Make a sales pitch them about it.

            Heh, all the ~15 year old folks posting here shoulda been around for DC7. You guys coulda gone after the girls dance team convention thing that was going on at the AP the same time as the 'con.

            I still remember all the parents of those kids looking on in horror when Defcon got into full swing. Wow.
            I like my women like I like my coffee. Thrown into a burlap sack, slung over the back of a mule, and then taken back to my kitchen to be burned, crushed, and scalded with hot water.

              That's actually been every year since the move to the Alexis. It ends right when we're getting there. This year's favourite quote was from one of those dance girls on Thursday, as I was walking past pool 1 with a few friends....

                Yeah I actually talked to some of them at DC9. It's odd that they're there every year, since Defcon usually jumps around throughout the summer.

                  It's a conspiracy, man!!

                  Added note... an old copy of Dance Spirit and some Google-fu led me to the Tremain Dance Conventions website, which shows that they will, indeed, be there right before us again (July 29-31). BUT... this is a bit disturbing... it shows them moving to the Flamingo!! I was so looking forward to our usual pre-con entertainment. *sigh*

                    Naw. The wedding party at DC8 was the shiz-o-nit, bar none. I'd almost feel bad if I were responsible for that marriage not lasting.

                      The religious convention (DC8, I think?) was also amusing.

                            I think you need to work out the whole parental consent bit first, before you start soliciting funds. Otherwise, people are donating in good faith towards your Defcon fund, just for your parents to tell you that you can't go. Then what? You have all this money, and you're not able to spend it on its intended purpose. Perhaps you should rethink this a bit. Talk to your parents. They aren't always as unreasonable as they seem.

                              Anyone that donates to this crap is opening themselves up to a shitload of trouble. If you're parents aren't aware of what you are doing, this could easily be construed as contributing to the delinquency of a minor. If your parents do know, why aren't they footing the bill? I can tell you one thing, if they do know, and are allowing you to not only accept money from perfect strangers, but to accept it from adults who are helping you go across state lines without their supervision they are shitty parents.
