Otakon 2010

Hey all, hope you're having a good year.

Otakon 2010 will be happening from July 30 to August 1, and usual, I am organizing a "CJAS and Friends" hotel room block.

This year, I have rooms booked at the Sheraton Inner Harbor.

If you're interested in going to Otakon and staying with us, please send me an e-mail. There is no-obligation, so even if you are
still unsure but are considering it, let me know so that I can keep you in the loop regarding future developments.

If, for some reason, I get so many responses that I don't have enough space to handle the worst-case scenario, I will send an e-mail out with more information, but that has never happened in the past. Historically, I've never had to turn anyone away who asked for space.

Generally speaking, we go 6 people to a room, with a cost of around $80-$100 per person for the whole weekend. Thursday nights may be extra. There will be a online web system for picking what room to go into so that you can decide who your roommates will be. If you're interested in seeing how things have gone in past years, the mailing list archives are at: http://www.cjas.org/pipermail/otakon/

This offer is also extended to non-cjas friends you may know. So feel free to pass this information along. When e-mailing me, please include your real name if it's not indicated in your e-mail address.

Also, starting 2007, we took over the Otakon gameshow, and will be continuing with that in 2010. Videos of the 2009 game show are at:

Jed also made a quick blog post at:

We need a lot of help with this event, both before and during the con. If you're interested in helping us develop questions and game play, or if you're available to help at Otakon staffing the show, please let me know.

Thanks!
