Membership have been selling at a steady rate all summer, and with the recent Terry Pratchett Author Tracker mention of the convention by HarperCollins (as well as a post by Neil Gaiman on his journal), we have taken in over 150 new memberships in the last couple of weeks, putting us at our cap of 900 members. We have closed down registration while we process all of the new memberships to determine if we have any space left. If we do, we will re-open registration briefly, and alert everyone to this opportunity via an e-newsletter and our news forum (http://community.livejournal.com/
nadwcon2009/). We are limiting memberships due to the size of our main ballroom, which can seat 900. We assume everyone attending the convention will want to be in the room when Terry is speaking and we want to make sure everyone will be able to fit into the room.
