My boyfriend is currently going through his paper work to join the Air Force and there is a possibility that he'll be in basic at the time but no official word yet.

Anyways, we don't want to buy a badge if he'll be gone, and at the rate we've been receiving info from them a very good chance we wont know before the online registering ends.

We'll be arriving on Thursday, and I know badge pick up is open that afternoon, but is the purchasing open as well, or will we have to wait until Friday for that?

You can buy a badge on Thursday Anime central; it is also where the Will Call people show up as well. Unless they randomly changed it this year it should still be the same ^^

Yes, you can purchase weekend badges on Thursday, or if you are purchasing a single day badge you can purchase a Friday badge on Thursday (single day can be purchased the day of and day before).

I salute your boyfriend, and wish him luck! Hopefully he'll get to enjoy Acen before shipping out :)

Thank you for clearing that up :)

He was sad when he moved from the east coast there were too many homely cons and not enough Otakons. I want to show him we can still have big cons, and have fun doing it!

We will also be continuing our "Service Discount" which is for those serving in the military, fire dept, police, etc with valid ID proving they are. This year it is not the 50% it was previously but is $28 for a full weekend badge so it would be best for him to purchase at the convention if he does join. This discount is only for him though and does not include family or other purchases. Registration will be open on Thursday as it is every year, that will never change. It is to lighten the line for the days the convention has active events :) If he does not have an ID by the convention date we will accept paperwork showing he is a member of the air force.

Oh I did not know that! That's great that you have such an amazing military discount. Thanks for the info, Bloo. Hopefully he'll be enlisted, just not have to leave until after ACEN. Awesome, thank you (:
