  • AP Rumors and Rooms

    My contact at Alexis Park has these sound bites:

    - "Defcon group has blocked off time here, athough there has not been conformation the event will be here"

    - "As of now there are about 100 rooms reserved Friday and Saturday, and about 80 rooms reserved Thursday"

    - "If the conference is not here, you will have 72 hours before check-in to cancel and NOT lose your money"

    Cheers!

    This is also what DT advised. The comment was made when Beetle suggested everyone book rooms immediately, because they fill up fast. DT remarked that if you haven't booked a room, you might want to wait 2 weeks. Being that it was last week, I don't think it would be terribly inconvenient to wait another week if you were planning on booking right now.

      That's what I'm doing.

        So if they change the venue, be prepared for a mad rush. It will not be pretty.

                There was another thread on this subject and I'll paraphrase what I said there, here.

                If you can afford to book, book at the AP. If the venue changes, book at the new venue but wait until that last -145 to -72 hours (if you can) to cancel at the AP.

                The *only* reason I booked there is proximity to the con and CC. F*** them.
                That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

                  My contact at Sheri's Ranch has these sound bites:

                  -"DT had already changed venues to Pahrump, NV vice Las Vegas, NV."

                  -"Not all events are covered under the entrance fee this year."

                  -"DC13 is gonna be a whole lot more expensive this year!"

                  Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge.

                    What about people like Highwizard, Octalpus and Ndex?
                    I don't see equal opportunity

                    -"Not all events are covered under the entrance fee this year."
                    Oh yeah? What kind of events won't be covered? (heh heh)

                          At this point, I'm hoping that DT also changes the date, although I doubt that will happen. I developed a schedule conflict after I made my reservations at AP.

                            It's not official unless it comes from DT

                            I love the way rumors get started around here. This is a classic example.

                            If the venue *was* to change to "Sheris" or the Chicken Ranch or Mustang Ranch or where-frigging-ever I still won't cancel my reservations at the AP until July 24th at the earliest. In addition, if the focus of Defcon were to change so that Pool2Girl and porno/whore-con were the highlight rather than, say, the robotics competition I don't think I'd bother to go at all.

                            I can see skank anywhere, I don't need to waste my vacation in Vegas to do it. I'd rather go to the EU.

                            If you're going to Vegas for the hookers and skanks why not do it some other time when you don't have to hang out with a bunch of geeks and hackers?
                            That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

                              MEEOOWWW!!!!

                              not to get on a box of soap, but,......

                              1. Not Vegas, Pahrump and I prefer to refer to the ladies of Sheri's as Service Professionals

                              2. I would try to cover the system compatibility/equal opportunity issue by flying specialists(from EU if you prefer)

                              3. It would be a nice balance between geek/hacker and sexy, hot, inviting, wanton ,...uh where was I, oh yeah.....Service Professionals

                              4. And I thought the title of this thread was "AP Rumours and Rooms"? Just making a suggestion.......
