Topic: FFcon 2k13 -- VEGAS BABY!

Here's the info:

Watch this!: http://youtu.be/fTthEPE5PHk?t=2m34s

The dates: August 22nd-25th, 2013

How will I get there? Coming from LA, we'll probably be driving (unless we find a super cheap flight) but we should start discussing having some RIDE SHARING if people will be coming in from all around the country. If you live somewhere close and are planning on driving, post in here and maybe we can find you someone you can split gas with!

What will happen?? FFCon is super fun. We hang out, eat dinners together, generally explore and cause mayhem, and then on SATURDAY we have our very own Film Fight! We break up into group and make a movie in only a couple hours. It's an amazing collaborative process that we've done for several years now, and it's always a blast! That's the main highlight of the week, outside just EVERLASTING FRIENDSHIPS.

Where will I stay? Our official hotel for FFCon is the Wyndham Grand Desert

Rooms at this resort normally run anywhere from $220-$320 a night.
All prices below are for the full stay...works out to be roughly $50 a night
We need to fill the unit to keep costs down so it can spread evenly.
Keep in mind this is not per person, it is per bed. For example, a couple could book in a double bed in shared room and it would still be only $100 total, although you will have a another bed in that room with another Film Fighter.
Private rooms are limited, first come first serve.

Re: FFcon 2k13 -- VEGAS BABY!

I just noticed that there's still a banner advertising FFCon2K12 on the Future Fights page. I got confused for a second.

Re: FFcon 2k13 -- VEGAS BABY!

Hey, sorry I don't know if I can make the full four days. I might only be able to stay Thursday and Friday.

It seems a couple people are having trouble with these dates.  Any way to change it to the last weekend of August?  29-01?

Re: FFcon 2k13 -- VEGAS BABY!

Starting to book the rooms for the Con...If you want a bed shoot an email to............ FilmFights@gmail.com
