I did not do any workshops. I just attended the convention, and did buy the extra Pirate bash ticket at 60.00.
The extra motel night was 65.00.
The three nights at the convention hotel at the convention rate was 89.00 a night which was very reasonable for the hotel.
Figureing gas, eats not included in the registration, hotel costs, about 850.00 for me. Thats not includeing what I spent on the extra motel night and the goodies I bought. That was about 600.00 more. Bringing me to about 1450.00 for the weekend.
Now.... I get to do this all again in February! Wahooo!
If you are into bonsai...I mean into bonsai, the experience is unforgettable.
