Who's going to FINCON12?

I know we're more than 3 months away until FINCON12 in Denver, but as we all know time flies…at least for me it does! :)

So, just wanted to gauge a quick survey on the following:

i) Who's going?

ii) When are you arriving?

iii) Were you there last year?

It would be nice to organize a "Yakezie Members" social/drinks on the arrival day or night (it could be something as simple as in the bar lobby of the hotel), this way we all get to share some laughs, meet face to face, and a good way for the newbies to the conference to "break the ice".


What you think guys?

I'm running out of time, but I'm still deliberating. I know that it'll be 1) awesome 2) a great opportunity 3) would love to meet fellow bloggers


That and I need to convince the wife :)

I'm definitely going this year Eddie.


Already booked the room and the conference ticket.  Just waiting to see whether the flights will be coming down a little as the time draws nearer, or if I'll just use rewards to fly.  Planning to be there on Thurs around noon until Monday morning.

I'm not going, but there is a good chance I'll be there. I live about 70 miles away. So if scheduling works out, I'd drive down for some after-hours event.

 I'm looking for editors, beta-readers, and some demographic research for my upcoming novel, Once Upon a Saturn Moon. If you like reading soft sci-fi thrillers, maybe with a touch of romance thrown in, you can find more information at…..aturn-moon

That's awesome to hear. Looking forward to seeing you there. Hopefully we can arrange some sort of a "Yakezie" pre-drink intro session. What you think?



Sucks you may not be there. It's a pretty good event, and can be informative. A good place to meet the big-dawgs and have a little 1-1. Hopefully you can make it.

I'm about 75% sure I'm going. I'm waiting on booking travel until I make up my mind… If so, I'll arrive sometime Wednesday evening and leave first thing Monday morning. 

I was there last year and had a blast! Just trying to justify it financially because I have some other things coming up that I need to be saving for.

I'm going and I went last year. It was amazing. There's been talk about arranging something previously on another thread. I think it's a great idea to have some sort of Yakezie meet up.

I would love to go but the first full week of every month is slam packed for me at work. Maybe next year it will be in the middle of the month so I can go :).

What is it? I don't usually have to foot my own bill to get to conferences so I'm intrigued. Can someone spell it out for me, using small words, so that I can understand? :)
