We will be accommodating  folks who are interested in 3&4 day tickets.
A lot of effort is going into creating the sheets used for this sale.  I have to say they look pretty spiffy.  The sheets and being a member of the group is going to require effort and some amount of hoops by the user.  this is to compensate for the lack of a name attached to each ticket which in turn requires way way more trust within the buying group.

Keep in mind the folks running this group are veteran organizers of SDCC and have successfully gotten badges for a vast majority of their members.  The process & procedures may seem over the top to some- to them i say, you have a choice, to join & fully participate OR not & take what fate gives you.
I personally think stacking the odds in my favor is the preferred course of action.

I am looking forward to this!

And I also commend the people who take the time out to organize these things. You guys have my utmost gratitude and support.

And yes, something like this is going to require *a lot* of trust, which I hope we can repay accordingly.

How did last year's group work out? Did everyone get the tickets they needed?

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login the majority of folks did get what they wanted- it was was a bit problematic due to the server issues.  we're still not sure if there will be VIP's again this year but 4 Day tickets sold out quickly too

If I had to guess, I would say there will be VIP and the elite VIP tickets. I have been going for 6 years now and they have had them every year. Those sell out even faster than the 4 day!!!!

Has there been an announcement on sale date for 2016 badges?  Read through the posts and checked on the website, but didn't see anything.  Making sure I didn't miss something.

Thanks!

Nothing yet. If past sales dictate anything, should go on sale roughly  by mid may.

I remember the good old days when VIP sales were in February and it was easy.

Now it's just bedlam for NYCC tickets

I miss those days too. Used to be able to get tickets up to the day before.

Sorry I've been absent lately, guys - work has been really tough on me since the SDCC hotel sale. I guess spring is "deadline project overload" time (to put things in context, I work for a division of a publishing company with only about 8 full time employees, so there aren't many people to hand things off to, haha). But I promise that I'm still checking FoCC on Tapatalk and NYCC's site/social media pages daily  ;)
