Hmm you might have a point there. I wish I knew what Friday's schedule looked like, I can't seem to find it on the website. For some reason I was assuming Friday didn't start until the afternoon and that you guys would be leaving early. We can move things around if need be, it's not a problem (outside of more $$$). Better to have things booked than not booked is all.
Yes, you can bring people to your room. As long as you're not rowdy, you'll be fine. As stated in the Hotel Code of Conduct, there will be a three strikes rule. You'll receive two warnings, the hotel may ask you to leave.
Reading about the Sheraton on the AB forum, lots of useful info on there.
What if Fakku had pedobear stuffs... Hur hur. Also, I'm debating posting news that I find about the convention in regards to photoshoots and special guests that aren't headliners, though headliners would work too. I know some special Touhou guests are coming~
Rooms have been booked for Thursday as well. The 6-7 of you staying with me need to cover 850 between ya's (about 120 a person on average) to pay for the entire weekend. 40 bucks a night, not bad for you doods. Keep in mind these are the social block rooms. If Domino's at 2 AM, copious drinking, and not much sleeping are not your forte, I do not recommend you stay in these rooms. As of now it looks like Nick Dave Paul Luis and Greg are all in, leaving two spots. Jack, Paul's bro and Nick's bro are all maybes as of now. Two of those three will probably round us out. Once I get one more confirm we'll have a better idea of what we're looking at.
As for other people, have they talked about transportation/lodgings yet? I know there's a lot of you...

Hey Chad, I've got a friend who's already confirmed a while back (he's got his bus ticket and everything, I think it'd suck for him to miss out on this at this point). Also, Zack has been on board for a while, Allen and Zi put in definite interest a couple of weeks back, and I believe if Nick's brother goes, Nick and him plan to get their own room.

I forgot you had a friend going, Dave, so I'll add him. That's going to push us to the limit, already assuming one stowaway per room:
Chad Nick Paul Greg Dave Friend of Greg (now known as the infamous FoG) Luis Nick's bro
I'm not abreast of what's on facebook but whoever else that has expressed interest should book their rooms now, especially if you want the social block. You can check for double bed rooms (occupancy 4) if something cancels. Also we might be able to work out having all the rooms close to each other. I've been speaking with the Sheraton staff for a while.

quick edit: Ok so the people who are misplaced are:
Ravi Persaud Zack Nelson Allen Yee Zi
That's 11 people which...ack >< (12 if this friend exists XD) I'm going to do some math and see if I can put enough in to help offset the cost of another room, but I don't have that much as it is. It's crunch time and any thoughts and/or contributions would be a major help. If enough people are only coming for 2 days, we can do a separate room for them, but I think everyone is doing all 3 days.

Well, Vivian and Chelsea and Raf and I are all set for the weekend, so we'll see you guys at Anime Boston. We're in the quiet block, though, so we'll actually be sleeping haha.
There's still time for people to get your own rooms, by the way. The Sheraton isn't full, and if you access the hotel information link from the Anime Boston website you can easily just reserve a room or two yourselves.
To make this simple so I can get back to my Japanese homework (hells yea): Paul stated: "Yeah, I personally don't mind doing 6 in one and 5 in the other, but if you guys are uncomfortable with that then I totally dig splitting it into 3 rooms. I mean yeah, with 11 people in 3 rooms that'll actually be nice, you can chop it up into 4/4/3 and there's not as much strain on the bathroom.
That said, do you think if we get a third room we can get another bro or two to join?
Oh hey, wait, I just looked and I see Chad's paying 570 and I'm paying 150? Dude that's not fair, if it's needed I'll pay 570 as well. I actually thought Chad and I would both be putting down 500+ so when you started asking for more money I was like fuuuuuuu
Yeah, pass the message onto Chadsworth that if a third room's needed I'll pay 570 dollah bills. And even if we just do two rooms I wanna pay more! >: O I have a jeorb man, what's the point of working if I can't spend all my money at anime boston?"
I stated (in terms of relevance): "If I put in 570, we'll have two rooms paid for XD
But I don't want to get too crazy, if you're doing 570 too then..damn. I honestly don't think we have too much to worry about. I'm planning on 200 + 100 worth in sake, but might do 300 depending.
To put it in a little bit of retrospect, if I put in the 200 and Paul does 570, it's ~122.48 per person. If I do 300, it's ~112.48 per person. Internet is another story though, it'd tack on another 117 or so to the total cost and bring the average around 130-135/120-125 depending on whether Allen would still pay for the net alone.
Also, you're helping me get that sake Paul! I promise I won't drink it all during the drive there :3"
"Oh, if you want to book the third room, you can go ahead Paul. Regardless of what happens, I'm more than completely sure we'll be able to afford it if you do the 570."
"afff, work with Chad to get it near the other two if you can."
I blame taking note of things I want to say after I've already pressed enter. Alright, now I'm going to listen to イオシス東方椰麟祭3 because it took 9 days to find after it came out on the 12th. Oh, and that homework.
