Is anyone going to start a pre-reg buying group?

Im sure most of the previous groups will reform.  You will likely see a new 2016 pre reg thread start in a few days

My nephew was with my brother's family waiting in the Hall H line on Thursday late afternoon by the waterfront.  I wasn't there at the time but I was the one who originally began to hold our spot in line ~10am, so I do remember it became rather windy that afternoon. 

Anyway, when I got back from the Spreckles theater I found out what happened.  Apparently, he saw one of those darn youtubers--who are like celebrities to these kids nowadays--walking towards the side entrance of the Hilton.  He tried going after him alone and suddenly there was a huge gust of wind that was strong enough to detach his junior badge from his lanyard and blew it into the water.  He said two security guards witnessed it and told him he could just go to Sails to get another one, but then he decided not to do it when he found out he'd have to pay the full price of another badge.  About an hour later, he even asked three people who happened to be kayaking nearby to help him look for it by the water's edge.  They were kind enough to do a thorough search, but the current must've taken it to Neverland by then since there was no sign of it.

I told his mom to email SDCC  to try and ask for help so that he could have a chance to participate in pre-reg for 2016.  And that next time to take a picture of his badge just in case.

I also suspect we will be forming new buying groups and looking for folks to lead them.  If anyone is interested in leading a group we'd be happy to walk you through the process & get you set up with an area & spreadsheets

I could potentially lead a buying group if they're all full and we need a new one. I know there are probably tools that have been set up, but are there specific policies with it too?

we do have a 'leaders' area where we discuss how to approach situations & guidelines on what to do.   the older groups have developed their own way of organizing, with the younger groups we've put together some guidelines but more as suggestions then anything else

There  are a lot of unknown factors for the existing groups right now, mainly how many are coming back.  If everyone in our group comes back, for example, we may not have open slots for pre-reg or even open reg for new group members.  Once the official buying group thread gets setup, keep an eye on it.  Everyone will be reporting there.

Pure speculation, but i would bet it's a certainty that a new group will get created, plus some of the pre-existing groups will have rooom.
