BIG FUN, NO WHAMMIES! - Megaplex 2007 News - January 2007



Happy New Year from all of us at Megaplex 2007!

I'LL TAKE A HOTEL ROOM TO (FILL OUR) BLOCK

ATTENTION! Reservations close on *January 30, 2007*, so get your rooms as soon as possible! Less that a month left to go to get your room at the con rate!

This year, Megaplex 2007 will be held at the Wyndham Jacksonville Riverwalk, in downtown Jacksonville, Florida. The hotel is just off of I-95, on the Southbank of the St. John's River. Full directions can be found on our web site (http://www.ppmp.info).

Reservations at the hotel can be made ON-LINE this year! This method requires a credit card to use. Here's how:

1) Surf to http://www.wyndham.com/hotels/JAXHT/main.wnt .

2) Click on the "Get Rates or Make A Reservation For This Hotel" link, just under the hotel's address.

3) On the next page...
a. Leave "Select A Rate Plan" (Section 1) as "Best Available & Wyndham.com WEBRATES".
b. Enter your arrival and departure dates (Section 2). Remember, Megaplex is March 2-4, 2007.
c. Specify # of Rooms, and folks staying in them (Section 3).
d. Skip past Section 4, unless you're a Wyndham ByRequest member and want the credit.
e. In Section 5, type the following in the "Group Code" blank : 0301886pa
f. Click "Check Availability"

4) The next page shows the rooms available. You should see "Pawpet Live Experiences" as the Rate Plan, and $99/night as the rate for regular rooms. Click on the rate for the room of your choice to continue.

5) On the next page, double-check the selections in Sections 1-4, then fill in Sections 5-8 and click "Confirm Reservation".

If you prefer to reserve by phone, call (904) 396-5100. Be sure to reference group reservation code 0301886pa to get Megaplex's room rate. If you have any questions on the hotel, feel free to contact Randy Fox at mp-facility@pawpet.org.

The Wyndham is a short distance from the Museum of Science and History (MOSH), Friendship Park, and River City Brewing Company, which can easily be reached via the Riverwalk. The hotel is also a stop for the S.S. Marine Taxi service (http://www.jaxwatertaxi.com), which is a convenient way to get to the shops and restaurants at the Jacksonville Landing (http://www.jacksonvillelanding.com). You can also utilize the nearby Skyway service to get to the Landing (http://www.jtaonthemove.com/services/skyway.aspx), or take a pleasant stroll over the Main Street Bridge. For those wanting to stay on the hotel's side of the river, eateries and stores can be found a short walk away in the San Marco shopping district.

We'll have additional information on attractions and amenities on our web site soon, as well as how to get there from Jacksonville International Airport. In the meantime, if you have a question about Florida's First Coast, drop Karl Meyers a line at mp-ceo@pawpet.org. (He lives there, after all! :)

NOW, FOR OUR FEATURE PRESENTA...oops, sorry, last year's theme. :)

COME ON DOWN!Collapse )

STAY TUNED!

Keep an eye on http://www.ppmp.info/ and http://megaplex.livejournal.com/ for the latest news and information, and please do not hesitate to drop us a line at megaplex-feedback@pawpet.org (or to the chairman directly at mp-ceo@pawpet.org) if you have suggestions or questions regarding the convention.

OCTOBER 13: NCSF Charity Auction Alanta
OCTOBER 13: The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom needs your body!

The Whippersnappers October play party features a kinky charity service auction to benefit The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, and we need your body for it. That's right, on Friday, October 13th, join us at 1763 to buy or sell tops, bottoms and switches from our community for scenes or service. All proceeds will go to NCSF. This will be an excellent opportunity to practice scene negotiations and to try something new or different. The possibilities for fun are endless while we raise funds to support a good cause!


Bid high and bid often, because every dollar you spend on Whippersnappers Bucks goes to a good cause - sexual freedom.

Megaplex 2007 dates and location!
The Board of Megaplex 2007 are pleased to announce that we have signed a contract and locked down dates for next year's convention.

The sixth edition of Florida's furry arts and entertainment convention will be held March 2-4, 2007, at the Wyndham Jacksonville Riverfront, in Jacksonville, Florida. Room rates will be $99 single/double, plus tax and fees.

As we just signed and sent back the contract this week, the hotel isn't set up to take our reservations yet. Keep watching our web site (http://www.ppmp.info) and megaplex for information on reserving your rooms. We should have this information available in short order.

The Wyndham is located on the Southbank of the St. Johns River, just outside downtown Jacksonville. It is a short distance from the Museum of Science and History (MOSH) and Friendship Fountain, and the Jacksonville Landing is just across the Main Street Bridge (and also accessible via "water taxi" from the hotel). It is easily reachable from I-95 and I-10.

For those familiar with Jacksonville, this hotel was just recently re-flagged, and was formerly the Radisson Riverwalk. Wyndham is in the process of remodeling the hotel now, and expects to have this done by September, well before Megaplex.

---

So, why Jacksonville?

This is, I'm sure, a big question on the minds of many of our prospective members. Well, the answer isn't all that different from one of the big reasons why Anthrocon moved from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh - cost.

The hotels we talked to in Orlando wanted way more than we have paid in past years for convention space. We're talking at least two to three times more. We also looked at the Tampa area, but what the hotels there wanted was still nearly double what we've paid in the past. Along with the increased space costs, the hotels were also offering higher room rates than we've had in the past.

The Wyndham, on the other hand, came along with a very agreeable offer, with a room rate under $100 before taxes. The lower space costs will allow us to look at some additional amenities for our members, as well. I guess you could say, in keeping with this year's theme, that The Price Is Right. :)

All in all, this will allow us to put on the best convention we can, without excessive worry over if we'll be able to afford the space. We may return to Orlando someday, or maybe even have a show in Tampa in the future, but for now, Jacksonville is our new home.

---

You're earlier in March...

Unfortunately, we did have to schedule a little earlier in March than we would have liked; the Wyndham has other events booked for our usual mid-March dates. We hope to be back in our traditional timeframe in 2008.

---

If you have any questions on our new location and weekend, please feel free to respond here, or send an e-mail to <megaplex-feedback@pawpet.org>. We'll be happy to answer questions on the convention.

Megaplex 2006...the HORROR! It's coming...

Things are proceeding rapidly here at Megaplex Central, as we draw closer and closer to our fifth anniversary! Here's the latest on Florida's furry arts and performance convention.

Happy Holidays! No matter how you celebrate the season, the Board and staff of Megaplex 2006 hope that your holidays were full of good cheer. We have some good cheer of our own to share, which we'll get to shortly. First things first, however...

The fifth-anniversary edition of Florida's furry arts and performance convention will be held 17-19 March 2006, as we return to the Sheraton World Resort in sunny Orlando, Florida. This year, we're saluting classic B-movies, especially the great horror flicks that came about during that time.

Megaplex 2006...the HORROR! It's coming...

BOO! It's that time of year for spooks and scares...and for a quick update on Megaplex 2006!

The fifth-anniversary edition of Florida's furry arts and performance convention will be held 17-19 March 2006, as we return to the Sheraton World Resort in sunny Orlando, Florida.

This year, we're saluting classic B-movies, especially the great horror flicks that came about during that time. It's almost a shame we're not running the con this month, but we wouldn't want to conflict with those great furry Halloween parties out there. I'll be touching on one in particular in a moment, but first...

...the CUT TAG!Collapse )

...now, about that Halloween party. FURLOWEEN is coming up on Saturday, 29 October, in Orlando, FL, and we have a treat for attendees. You'll be able to pick up a special coupon code that you can use when registering for Megaplex 2006, saving you $5 off your attending membership! The code will be good only for 30 days after Furloween.

For more information on this year's Furloween, visit http://www.floridafurs.com/furloween.

(Just to keep our insurance folks happy: Furloween is a production of Patrick Dowden. Pawpet Live Experiences, Inc., is in no way responsible for this event. Questions on Furloween should be directed to Mr. Dowden. Right, back to...)

...the FUTURE! Things are progressing nicely on the programming front, and we hope to have some news on events and entertainment at this year's con in our next update.

In the meantime, keep an eye on our web site (http://www.ppmp.info/) and LiveJournal community (http://www.livejournal.com/community/megaplex) for more news. Hope to see you at Megaplex 2006!
