Greeting Rocketeers! It is quickly coming up on the deadlines for reserving your pre-registration and hotel room for this year. In order to reserve your hotel room at the RCFM rate of $109 per night (instead of the normal $169), you must make your reservations by Friday, May 7th. And membership pre-registration closes on Friday, May 14th. We cannot guarantee the special room rate or pre-registration discounts after those dates! So get everything squared away now, before you have to pay more for it!

Time is running OUT! There's only a few short weeks left before the opening of RCFM - LUCKY 8. If you have not gotten your con registration and/or room reservations made, WHY NOT? Don't wait till the last minute and miss out on the savings. As 2 The Ranting Gryphon would say... "YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG!". :)
Don't forget about our Predator/Prey discount either. For each first time attendee that you get to register, you get $5 off your membership. With this incentive, it only takes a few friends to earn yourself a FREE membership.
When you Pre-Register, don't forget to pay at that time since it is the only way you can get the pre-registration discount. You cannot pre-register now and expect to pay the lower fee at the door. It is always best to go ahead and pay when you register.
Hotel space is filling up fast, so be sure to get your room reserved soon.

ART SHOW RESERVATIONS NEEDED
Time is running out for reserving an Art Show panel. If you are interested in having your pieces in the silent auction, or just want to display and want to get a panel for this year's RCFM Lucky 8 then get your request in today.
Display-only panels require a non-refundable deposit of $10.00 for first time (non-returning) artists, which will be refundable when you present your pieces for display at the show. Submission forms can be downloaded from the website (go to www.rcfm.net --> Events --> Art Show) and can be emailed or snailmailed to the addresses found on the Art Show page. The deposit (if needed) can be mailed to the address also or Paypal it to the Paypal link on the art show page.
See you at the show!
