New to the forums, fourth year attending D*C. I wasn't planning on going this year because my work travel schedule was supposed to be really busy and I was supposed to have family in town. Plans changed and I made the snap decision to attend this year. Nice thing about late planning is the anticipation has been pretty low and I've been a whole lot more productive at work because I haven't been daydreaming about the con. :)

Welcome aboard!  To come to Con is the best snap decision you've ever made.  ;)

Since I won't be able to make it to the con until Saturday, I was wondering if anyone might be able to plan a later Newbie thing on say, Saturday afternoon?  Sucks I can't get there till later, but two days is better than no days, right? 

Saturday afternoon will honestly be FULL TILT.  Do you know anyone personally who is already going to be there? 

OK, as I started typing this, I realized it needs it's own FAQ Thread:

Long time attendee, first time poster...  Been going to since 1995 when NASFiC was hosted.  I've missed 5 years in the intervening years but looking forward to this year.  Just happened to find these forums, but have posted on LiveJournal and Reddit about D*C just not here...  Hi.

I think 1995 was my first Dragon Con as well.  A lot has changed over the years.

Hi - casual_observer here.

Was at DragonCon over 10 years ago for part of a day due to work (had patron passes).  This will be the first year I've been as a con goer. 

I'm excited, and interested in a variety of the tracks.  I'm definitely excited about the social aspect of it all, and graciously accept any advice on where to go, who to meet, what to drink, etc.
