  1. I would like to register but the sessions I’m interested in are full. Is there any way I will be able to attend these sessions if I register?

  2. @ Jason – offer Gary a few thousand SPG points and I am sure he can find a seat for you up front. (heck I would give you MY seat for a few thousand SPG points come to think about it!) 🙂

  3. @Gary,

    My calendar cleared for that weekend, but your session is full. Is there any way of gaining admittance due to a no show?
