Where do I pick up my badge?

Regular members pick up their badges at the pre-registration desks. Guests of Honor will be given theirs. Program participants pick up their badges at the pre-registration desks and then will be instructed to go to the Green Room to pick up their program materials. Dealers will be able to pick up their badges from Larry Smith in the Dealers' Room. If dealers have helpers, they need to notify us at so that we can put their helpers badges with theirs.

Convention Registration is at the Ballroom Level of the East Tower of the Hyatt, if you get lost, ask for the convention registration desk. Do Not Pass GO without getting your registration materials.

What do I need to pick up my memberships?

You will need a photo ID. It will also be helpful to bring your copy of PR7, as that will give us your membership number. Parents can pick up badges for their children living at the same address. You can NOT pick up badges for friends.

What if I am getting a membership transferred?

If you get a membership from someone else by August 25th, the transfer can be arranged via email. We need to receive a message at a verifiable email address from the person transferring the membership, indicating you as the person to receive it. After August 25th, NO email transfers will be processed. They MUST be done at the door. At the door, we will require a letter or fax with the signature of the person transferring the membership. Printouts of email messages WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
