Don't forget these for C3
« on: April 18, 2005, 12:12 PM »
I just thought I'd start a quick thread of things we'll all likely need for C3.  We're all too excited to think straight and probably going to forget something, so let's help each other out!

  • C3 Passes if received in mail
  • Paperwork & credit card for Passes for Will Call
  • Cash / Credit Card(s) / Left arm
  • - can't pass up on that purchase of a lifetime, can you?
  • ID - "are you sure you're 21?"
  • Camera
  • Batteries & charger - for lots of pics!
  • Cellphone & charger
  • Binoculars?
  • Backpack
  • Jacket / weather appropriate wear
  • Poster tube?
  • Loose action figures for FFURG's booth - should be fun!
  • Deodorant / breathmints / toothbrush and toothpaste - I don't want your stinky ass standing next to me!
  • Clean / extra underwear - listen to your mom, dammit!
  • Snack foods

I'm sure I'm forgetting a few things at this moment, so be sure to add more kids!

edit... Added in Princess' excellent suggestions.

Also, Jesse, don't forget an umbrella or rain jacket.  They are forecasting rain and high's in the upper 60's... :(
Don't forget your state licensed id- for pickup at will call and for buying drinks after hours (or maybe during hours depending on your mood).
I'm also bringing raisins and pretzels for my purse to avoid really bad con food, for those long days of going from line to line.
Cell Phone and the Charger!
Not just clean underwear- but a pair of undies for EACH day, and maybe a spare one or two in case of fountain hopping, pool jumping, etc.
Toothbrush and toothpaste- because mints aren't enough... and floss is good, too :)
You are starting to damage my calm.

And for my fellow Canucks, don't forget your:

Photo ID + birth certificate
or
Passport.

Great idea for a thread Jesse2! I hadn't even thought about a camera until earlier today (before I saw your thread), I woulda been miffed if I hadn't brought it along to capture all the fun that's to be had. Well so long as the damn thing takes good pics...

And for Canadians don't turn on your cell phone unless it really is an emergency.  Roaming charges for Canadian plans down south are pretty outrageous, around $5 a minute. :o

I gotta pack up my carded or packaged stuff to sign and hope it does not get damaged significantly.  I think I may leave the camcorder behind and just opt for the digital camera.  Decisions, decisions.

Also on my list, and likely a very important item:  Excedrin.   ::)

I'd also suggest making sure you bring along the schedule (& descriptions) of events.  Helps with the planning while you're there.  But I suppose if you nab a program, that should work just as well...
