I'm going to be there from Wednesday to Wednesday - time before to chill, time to work and then time to decompress afterwards before heading back home.
...and a week of Hilton breakfasts too! <3

Not quite. Didn't manage it on Saturday or Sunday last year because I was so busy, it was up, shower and downstairs to get things done.

I should be there all weekend but I'm just going to book a room at a different hotel. Also I'm not sure if I'll bother with the concert considering I know two of his songs and I'm not the biggest fan of concert-like environments.

I'll be there all weekend. Hopefully from the Thursday, because I'll be flying over and don't want to miss anything on Friday!

I've just bought a weekend ticket to my first ever TF convention. Don't know what to expect -- excited... but a bit nervous!

TFNation, Stan Bush ticket and hotel booked!! I'm staying Thursday-Sunday and will probably bugger off early on Sunday evening, depending on trains.

The desktop version of the ticket site didn't work at all, but thankfully I managed to sort it all via the iPad. Had trouble getting the hotel room for Thursday at the special discounted rate but I just phoned the hotel and they added it for me manually.

BRING IT ON!!

That was a dark and mysterious couple of hours! I do feel sorry for the TFN peeps, their job is made so much more difficult by everyone who wants a Hilton room needing to be there dead on 12 in such numbers as to destroy the internet.

I have officially booked a twin room from Friday to Monday morning as that was the only option left, and was originally going to cut the cost by sharing with another friend who is likely to only show up for the one night. But, two people who actually needed the double room but had only been able to get two singles on Friday and Saturday have agreeded to swap for those days as it works out cheaper for all of us (£140 for two nights rather than £160 for me, £160 for them rather than £280). For me it'll just be a pain having to move to a twin room on the Sunday (though I may pump for a single at the advance discount rate instead) and working out exactly who owes who what as we all pay.

No Stan Bush for me in the end, I thought it'd be fairer to let the people who really love his stuff have the space. I like his two TFTM songs, but even having seen Bloodsport last weekend (long story. But every song in that film sounded like a Stan Bush song even though he only did the one for it!) I don't think I could cope with the full Bush.

Still, with all that sorted for now, I can collapse in a mildly contented heap.

Well that was a harrowing experience. In previous years I've never had a problem but maybe this year they've just had loads more people going in for tickets early.

Thankfully that's my tickets and room all booked!

Sorted for Friday through Sunday, and have somehow convinced the wife to come along.

I definitely think there's been a spike in people looking to get tickets/hotel right at the start. It's nice to know how popular the event is, but I do understand the disappointment when people miss out on rooms at the Hilton.
