I'd like to know as well. Seems like one airline is currently running a fare sale which will end very soon. ;)
It's not a popularity contest, it's beer!

I honestly don't know but if (I don't know) it wasn't no one has any idea if it will in the last days or not which leaves you in the same situation.  A ticket you can cancel in two weeks?  Am least ask.

Pre registration we thought it would be close. Heavy hit last year because it was the east coast so somewhat less pressure from locals this year vs growth. Hoping for 3999 this year and everyone getting in.

That's becomes a pretty expensive dinner ticket.  If I get drawn, I will probably have an extra banquet ticket to give away ...
You can email altitude tickets and they will remove the banquet from your request, but do that before the close.

from conference web site..."Participating in Club Night does not secure you or your fellow club members a spot at the conference, please apply to register for the conference before February 28, 2014 if you plan to attend."

might wanna fix that date just to keep people happy that you've been consistent.

*edit* - a date by when a club needs to commit to Club Night would be great too, though I see no need for it yet.

So now... Anyone else wondering what the sample glass is going to be like this year?  I hope it goes back to a goblet like Seattle had.

I would love to see a goblet, betting . . . . .  I would bet against it.
My guess is High Gravity will supply the glass again.

A straight sided glass. Kind of like a big shot glass.

A change this year, ALL attendees must be AHA members.   I signed my wife up with a household membership for this reason.
Quote
Each member applying to register may request ONE guest registration.
Additional registration fees are required for a guest.
All guests must also be members of the AHA.
A valid 9-digit AHA member number for each registrant and guest will be required.

Wait, what?  I regestered the first day and when I signed my girlfriend up using my same number I didn't receive an error.  Is this going to mess up my registration?

I don't think "guest" is the right word to use if they have to be a member anyway.
Please do not reply if your an evil alien!
Thanks

I would think that would cause some sort of issue...
