Unfortunately, the registration method your using makes my browser want to hurl. Granted, I'm still using Mac OS 9.2, and IE 5.5 probably shouldn't work with it. However, could you give either a link to the plug-in I need, or to a text version of the registration that i could e-mail or snail-mail to you?

Thanks. Looking forward to my first major coaster event!

Not to complain or anything, but $56 sounds kinda steep for an event

$56 is not that steep...Spring Fling at SFoG (an ACE Event) is $55.

When you take into consideration the ticket to get in (let's assume that's $30). $26 pays for your lunch plus the ERT on S:UF...It is not that bad of a deal...plus, Jeff said in the forum thread,

"In addition to the ERT and lunch, the PR staff tells me they're working on some "fun extras," so stay tuned for that! "

Nelson, the registration doc is a pretty standard PDF. If you don't have Acrobat Reader installed (free from Adobe), get it and you should be set. PDF's are pretty common on the web now, so I'm surprised you don't already have it.

Prodjbp,

It has nothing to do with SF...it is based on what is called "Economy of Scale".

For events such as this, there are certain fixed-fee costs that need to be paid for no matter if 10 or 100 or even 1,000 people show up. When you have a huge event (CoasterMania) they are able to spread out that fixed cost fee over 1,500 (or more) people. for CoasterbuzzCon, Jeff is hoping to get 80 (or more) people.

I am guessing that the fixed fee portion of the event cost is at least $1,200 (guessing that the lunch is $10 per person) which makes the fixed fee $15 per person.

If Jeff was able to expect twice the crowd, he'd be able to cut the per person fixed fee portion in half, but to be realistic, 80-90 people is about all he can estimate will show up.

The cost is what they charge me plus a buck to cover credit card transaction fees, name tags, etc.
