So here's a question for all in attendance.
How much money are you budgeting for, on top of planned expenses?
Basically, you've got registration, paint, gas money, food/food money, etc.
But what about extra "holy crap, that's a good deal" or "omfg I want that sooo bad" money?
I'm budgeting ~$250 for the whole thing. $130 of that is registration, paint (one case), the free dinner, and some of the extra pre-order deals you can throw in with registration. Another $45-50 for gas (carpooling), and then the rest will be for concessions and extra money.
I also created an event (Facebook) for MCB members to RSVP to, that way we can all track who is coming and meet up! EVENT LINK
