It means the FBL DD will take place on Friday, November 2nd from 2PM to 7PM and on Saturday, 3rd November from 10AM to 7PM. We are also able to accommodate some more dealers’ into the den, meaning we will get everyone out of the waiting list and we will open for some more applications. We are trying to keep the DD as easy to walk around as possible. If you have any question, feel free to ask the DD staff: dealersden(at)fblacklight(dot)org
Nosecount : We have 219 registered attendees (183 confirmed) from 8 countries (France, Swiss, Belgium, Germany, Italy, United States, Russia and Czech republic).
Hotel : It’s full. There is no more avalaible rooms for the whole FBL duration. They can add an extremely limited amount of one person beds in some rooms. Please contact the hotel for more informations. If you don’t have a room yet : there is another hotel (Campanile La Verrière) around the FBL main hotel. Don’t forget : only 1 person need to do the room booking for all the room guests. If you made several bookings for the same room, please contact the hotel staff to cancel unwanted bookings.
Dealers’ Den : It’s full, too ! The DD Staff is working at stuffing the all the fluff inside the room [insert Tetris Type A BGM here] et they will announce this year’s dealers soon !
See you next time !
Thanks to you, the FBL grows a little more each year. The FBL has reached a step where we need to do some little changes to accommodate a better venue for all of you. Here are this year changes.
From now on, you will need to provide a valid ID to get your badge form the con-ops. It is impossible for us to know personally each one of you and we will now need to check your ID before giving you your badge. We will check with the data you provided in your registration form before handing out your badge, so please double check your personal data before attending. These IDs are accepted : national ID card, driving license (France only), national or European passport (foreign countries).
For 16-17 year olds, if your legal representative does not accompany you, you will also be asked to present the original of the liability waiver that you scanned to register. We take this opportunity to remind you that this liability waiver must be completed without modification so that it is valid and so that we can welcome you safely.
This year on, the Black Dance entry fee is included in the global FBL fee for everyone, even if this appear billed separately on your invoice (for accounting reasons). This decision will make life easier for you when you register and easier for us when preparing badges.
And finally, we want to remind you that, for safety reasons, you must wear your badge at any time
during the FBL if you want to attend events.
As promised, a little statement about hotel rooms and LaserQuest sessions.
At the moment, the first LaserQuest session is full and there is 7 spots left in the second one. There is no third session planned.
First, about hotel privatization : it will be effective only if all the rooms are booked by FBL attendees (which is likely to happen).
Second, after some negociations with the hotel staff, we unlocked some more rooms at a FBL discounted rate.
1 suite ;
1 triple room ;
15 twin beds rooms (2 single beds);
25 double rooms (1 large bed) ;
And last, some reminders :
– Remember that FBL discounted breakfast is only bookable at the hotel desk the day of your arrival.
– Only one person need to book the room for his/her/their roommate(s).
– Party animals are kindly asked to book their rooms on the 1st floor of the hotel, to avoid late-night noise spreading.
– Please follow the booking instructions provided to book a room if you need to do so.
