Begins in just a week One note - about something I didn't realize right away. GC is always experimenting with events and registration, trying to improve the con experience. Last year, they did away with the long-standing practice of Premium/VIP/Gold events, in favor of a staggered registration for different badge types. This year, they are using staggered registration and Premium events. (Elementals get 2, Astrals 1, and Ethereal 0). See the "Special" column for events designated "Virtual Premium".
