Hello everyone!

There's a lot going on over the next couple of weeks, so i thought it would be a good time to push out a general update.

First things first...

Accommodation

Currently, there are still 3 rooms available for the Friday night, 2 for the Saturday night, and 6 for the Sunday night. The hold on these rooms ends on the 16th of April, after which the hotel prices tend to go up pretty steadily the closer you get to the con. Don't forget, we have a roomies thread on dreamwidth and on LJ, both of which include the reminder that it's best to talk to the Reservations desk about booking - make sure you mention it's for VidUKon. I booked my room earlier today, and the staff were very friendly - don't be afraid to ring.

Memberships

Don't forget - the cost of an attending membership goes up on the 15th of April. If you're hesitating about coming, this is close enough to the day the rooms get released back for general purchase by Muggles, so it may be worth grabbing your membership and your room booking at the same time...

You can buy your registration by going to the con site; it should be listed in the panel on the left, although you'll need to create an account to buy a membership.

Scholarships

The scholarship is still available - the deadline for nominations is the 1st of April. More detail is available in the threads on the scholarship, but we're keen to see as many nominations as you're willing to make - this is our chance to bring someone to the con who wouldn't otherwise get the chance to attend. The post contains all the detail on priorities, donations and the like. Please give it a read!

Boardgames

There are times at the con generally used for chilling out, and our programming on the Friday begins with informal vidwatching and entertainment. One of the suggestions made was that it might be fun to play some boardgames and cardgames as a way of helping people get to know each other. Is this something you're interested in? If you are, drop me a comment on LJ/DW or ping the con twitter account (@vidukon) to let me know - or to make suggestions.
