Having waited till the last second to book my hotel, I decided to buy my tickets to MegaCon as well. I was just planning for just the 1 full day on Saturday but it appears that after re-consideration of the panels, I’ve decided to stay for Sunday as well. Below is a listing of the panels that I am interested in attending. This will also increase your chances of finding and winning a cash prize. Refer to this link for more details.
