Flanvention II really cancelled this time - Nothing to See Here

07:06 pm - Flanvention II really cancelled this time

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Booster Events, in their infinite incompetence and horrendous disrespect for all the people who paid them to put on a convention, have canceled the convention as of late this afternoon. Yes, the day before the start of the convention. The day of early registration! A day when many of the attendees have arrived and checked into the hotel. Thanks, Booster Events! Thanks for nothing! I look forward to the class action lawsuit.

On a brighter note, the weekend certainly sounds like it'll be fun, whatever it holds. 500 Browncoats in a hotel (with, of course, a bar!).

Also, Adam Baldwin frakking rocks. We knew it before, but today is further confirmation.

He's here plotting with Adam, Karla, Louise, James and Co. (a bunch of people representing California Browncoats who are working hard to try and pull together a weekend for a lot of people suddenly left without a convention). Booster Events have screwed him and the other guests too, obviously. It shows what a fantastic guy he is that he's shown up anyway, because he really cares. He is such an awesome guy (even if he is a stinky republican).

Current Location: Burbank, CA
Current Music: Ballad of Joss - Bedlam Bards (who are down in the lobby)

Politics aside, he really is an awesome guy for doing that. I hope at least that Booster is refunding everyone for their screwup?

That includes a very big assumption that they have the money to refund us. I remain highly skeptical.

He is definably awesome!

You guys go have fun this weekend, we'll make sure that we get the litigation started bright and early monday morning. Where's the 'Get the Browncoats a lawyer' fund?

Heh. I don't know, but I suspect some form of litigation will arise. I think I have an infinitely better chance of getting my money back by disputing the charges on my credit card, though.

Well, lmk if you see any litigation started. As for disputing, good luck, get it done asap.

We forgive Adam his appalling politics because he is a sweetiepie. We will never forgive the BE bitches and will instead hunt them down and hurt them. I'm just saying.

I don't want to hurt anyone (though, well, maybe in terms of stuff like credit rating!). I want (1) my money back, (2) them not to [be able to] screw anybody else like they did us.

I, for one, welcome our convention-cancelling overlords.

Seriously, I just got back from Burbank. Well, Pasadena anyway.

Urr... I... assume that was just a joke -- a riff on the ant overlords -- and not some actual statement of support for the scum. :P
