Cost = 2100 + 175*x

x= additional hours

Cost = 2100 + 175*85

Cost = $16950 = 93 hours

No, 34 days is still possible! (Assuming they would do individual day rates; $5,000/10 = $500 per day.)
$5,000 x 3 = $15,000 = 30 days
$2,000 = $500 x 4 = 4 more days

If you do it this way, you’d also get 2 reindeer instead of just one!

Come on, now! We can’t be letting technical oversights like this get ReindeerCon into the same sort of legal troubles as Dashcon!

That’s correct!

My sincere apologies! I was thinking consecutive hours when I should have been thinking more realistically. How silly of me.

I know this is very off topic, but in light of recent events (scammers) I thought you might be interested in knowing that someone is doing something positive about Dashcon ‘14. They want to raise $17,000 for homeless LBGTQ youths. I’m including the link, and I’m also donating a portion of any commission I make to the cause.

This is really important to me and I’m sorry if this seems spammy (you absolutely don’t have to publish) but maybe if word gets around that there are better ways to spend 17 K we can really help some teens that need it. 

Thank you!

Of course I’ll publish this! General jokes and dumbassery aside, HERE’S what you should do with 17k instead of spending it on a pissed in ballpit. If any of you has some extra cash, you should go donate! Any little bit counts.

Would everyone attending dashcon have been able to go to comic con with $17k?

Let’s see… Assuming they are all juniors (13-17 years old) and planned to attend all days (Preview night, Thrusday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday), then that would put badges at $100 (Source). If they were to stay at a 3-star hotel for the time of their permanence there, then that is additional $256 (Source). That is, of course, assuming everyone has a room for themselves. 

Bearing all this in mind, only 47 people would have been able to attend Comic Con, and that is not even counting cosplay supplies, transportation, food, etc. And there were at least 100 people at DashCon.

There are a lot of variables to keep in mind, but tl;dr, no, they could not have.
