PostSubject: The Official TIG Celebration VI Thread - August 23-26 2012 ORLANDO   The Official TIG Celebration VI Thread - August 23-26 2012 ORLANDO I_icon_minitimeSun Jun 19, 2011 12:29 am

A few guys in chat earlier were discussing the possibility of us attending C6 in Orlando next year. It seems quite a few guys are toying (lol) with the idea, & quite a number of TIGgers have already decided they'll go. I thought a thread here might help make some minds up, especially while there is still time to save.
I know it is still a way off, but time flies as they say, & the earlier the decision to go is made, the more time to save & get organized there is.
A whole group of TIGgers attending would be an awesome thing. I know that I for one would be attending more because it's just about the only chance i'll get to meet most of you guys. ......oh, & for the room sales too!!
So, maybe if guys can just post thier intent to attend, & maybe if they've booked tickets for the event, hotels, travel plans, whether they'll be with wifes/girlfriends or looking for roommates to share with etc.
I guess this is an excellent excuse for most of us to spend a few days absolutely completely submerged in our favourite hobby, & with our best mates too!!!
I'm excited!!!

I'm making plans to go. Barring floods, death, bad hair day, and a bad case of the cooties I will start the saving process now and get my butt there.

I have to look into a room pretty soonly. As well as travel plans. Pretty sure my wife will be going with me. If it turns out she isn't going I may be looking for a roomate.

We TIGers should think about setting aside an evening to get together and hang out.

SO EXCITED!!!! Think of all the crap we can buy and bring home. bounce

If things go right for me for once, I plan on making it this time. That is unless the world comes to an end first. If/when I go, I'll be by myself, so Paul if you need a roomie, I'm game. I'll def know by the end of the year, so that will give a full 8+ months to get everything together on it. I cant miss this one again with it so close.

I'm definitely going. Since it's in Orlando again, I may be going with a friend of mine that has family there. If that's the case, I would be staying with them. But at this point the wife and I are talking about making a whole vacation out of it. Since it's in Orlando, we cold get there early, and take the kids to Disneyworld, Universal Studios, etc. And also my oldest son will be 8 then, so I think he would really dig going to CIV. If thats's the case, then we would be staying in a hotel.

Either way, it might make meeting up and going to the room sales more difficult, because I would either have obligations to hang out with my friends family, or be obligated to my family. But I swore after CV that I would NOT miss the room sales again, and NOT miss the opportunity to hang out and meet the friends I've made, both here, and at POTF2.com, the other awesome forum I frequent.

So after all that, hell yes I'm going, and hell yes I wanna hang out! celebrate

I am in for my fourth Celebration event. I will be rooming with a few scummers at the Rosen Centre and looking forward to an awesome time. Similar to CV, I will be making some exclusive swag as well. Definitely a patch (three colors) and either a coin or t-shirt. Of course, the latter depends on $$$$. My son will be six and might join me for a day or two as well. I will let him gaze at the half-naked women walking around. That should give him a good education.. Smile

I am about 75% sure I will be attending, it's been a long time since my wife and I had a holiday so this would be a chance to visit the states together and also get some SW time in Smile

I doubt I will be staying in the $100+ Rosen but I am sure there are lots of hotels close by to the action that are a bit cheaper so there must be other options!

Got a LOT of planning and saving to do, this is ultimately going to be a huge expense for us coming all the way over so I hope things go according to plan.

Joe, when my wife and I went to CV, we stayed at the Clarion Inn and Suites, just 2 buildings away from the Rosen and we got a fantastic room for a great deal. I'm pretty sure we'll be going to CVI and I'd be happy to stay there again. So there's definitely other good options out there.

Joe I'm looking at the Hotels nearby right now. I too probably won't be staying at the Rosen. I hate paying that much for a hotel room. I'm happy as long as there is a bed and a shower. A room is just that for me, four walls and a place to crash. The econo Lodge is looking pretty good right now.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone. We should definitely hang out one night.

I'm booked at the Rosen again.

Just got it all booked up! Celebration 6 just got a little DarthTadier!!

I'm staying at the Peabody. Not sure how that relates to all the other hotels as far as distance, but I think they're all relatively close.

Any word on a TIG meet up yet?

Not there until late Friday, but hope to meet a few of you throughout Saturday & Sunday. My guess is that trading the 'StarTots' is going to be the perfect icebreaker...

...wait...I think I just came up with a t-shirt idea! cheers

I'll be there -- mostly filming stuff for the documentary, but also hanging out and doing my best to hit all the collector panels. (And whatever else looks cool.) My first Celebration -- totally psyched!
