Be aware that they have changed the seating arrangements this year.  The last few years they had gold, captains chair and I think preferred in 3 columns centered on the stage.  They put everyone else in the back and in 2 columns (one on each side of the center 3).  This year they are apparently stretching every one out across the entire room.  They did this at the first couple of conventions but people complained about spending a lot of money and being out in the boonies on the wings.

This is another reason I'm getting more fed up with Creation.  The last few years We've had seats E2 and E3.  They are just off Stage left and afforded not only a good view but extremly easy access as you only need to go by 1 person to get to your seat.  We kept these specific seats that that reason.  This year after taking forever to charge my card for the 07 prereg I received a note saying:

" For those of you who have purchased seats in the center section of the auditorium.  We will not add seats off to the sides for this upcoming event, like we did during the 2006 event

Since we added more seats to the far right and left of the auditorium, the seat numbers had to be change so the seat numbers remain consistent; but your seat location will remain the same.  Please see the seating grid listed below as it includes your old seat number(s) and your new seat number(s)."

The first paragraph at first doesn't make sense since apparently the seats will still be there just different people sitting in them.  I will try to make a simplified chart so you can see what it looks like they have done:

1-------------13   14-------------------33   34-------------46

25------------37   38-------------------57   58-------------70

                     Aisle                              Aisle
                            CREATION STAGE

The top line would have been the original number (if I'm reading this right and I make no guarantee of that).  Our new seats are C31 and C32  which is still stage left according to the second line of numbers.  So if this is right I'm guessing there will be like 94 seats across.  So for the Gold patrons when they call you by row for autographs instead of 46 people getting in line it will now be 94.  True there will be fewer rows of Gold but they still sell roughly the same number of packages each year.

The really irritating thing about this is they held the seat selection at last years convention using the old system.  I don't know, this may be better but if I had known this last year I might have chosen different seats so I could have still been on an aisle.

The tone of this post might be a little sever so I just want you to know I AM looking forward to the convention and plan to have  a good time in spite of what Creation will do to frustrate me this year.  We have our tickets to Mystre on Tuesday and Penn and Teller on Wednesday so our extra shows are scheduled.  Might do a show on Friday or maybe Saturday if we decide to skip the Star Trek Concert (but will be back for the dessert party ...mmmm desserts).

So does the letter of your seat indicate how many rows back you are?  I know last year was different, they had F and FF, etc...

I'm hoping I got good seats, Creation failed to process my order about three fraking times, so I fear I will not have as good of seats as I would have if they had done it right the first time!

Actually based on the letter Creation sent me I understand that this year the seating will go like this:

E
D
C 1-----24     25------37     38-----57    58-----70   71-------94
B 1-----24     25------37     38-----57    58-----70   71-------94
A 1-----24     25------37     38-----57    58-----70   71-------94

                               CREATION STAGE

In previous years the 3 central columns (seats 25-70) would be the Gold seats then the Captains chair would be behind them.  but according to the letter they are spreading the Gold / Captains chair etc all across the room.  This means Gold will be A 1-94, B1-94 etc.  I think that in years past there have been like 500 gold packages so in the past A-L would probably be right but if they are spreading all the way across than Gold will probably only be 5 to 6 rows A-E (maybe a small F row).  I'm basing this on the fact I've been moved from E2 & E3 to C31 & C32.

They did indeed over sell the seats last year on the Saturday when Shatner and Nimoy were on stage.  That is the only time I'm aware of that happening in Las Vegas (I've been going since they started in 2002).  Of course that doesn't mean they won't do it again.

all states are all difrent in the way they do the seating, it would be the size of the hall that Creation fines. so i am right and the other person is also right to.
