Just realized something this morning. I was looking for something to use to store my vaccine card. I still have a lot of old convention badges and Gen Con plastic badge holders from around 5-10 years ago are the perfect size. Who knew I'd have a real life purpose for hanging onto those things?

Their description does seem to rule out True Dungeon, I don't know how you can hold a True Dungeon run while social distancing. Hopefully I'm wrong about that.


Yeah, I hit the Hilton site right after the announcement came out and they were already blocked. I had rooms for August, but no go this time. :(


It was sad to lose that sweet $152 per night rate I had at Tru for the original August date. I was just able to get a decent rate at the Hilton Indianapolis Inn and Suites as a backup plan for the new date though. :)


Really? Did you use Diamond status for it? It wasn't showing up for me (even with Diamond).


The decent rate only lasted a day or so, then went up. From Monday to Sunday I'm currently seeing a AAA rate of $328 average per night. That's not too far off what I reserved it for.


Ah--okay. I may have been trying to book with points, too.

Oh, hey, I hadn't even thought of that!

This is a great idea. I'm going to laminate my vaccine card.

Looking forward to hearing more about the vaccine passport being discussed.

I thought that they were advising people to not laminate their vaccine card?

You are correct. I made that statement before hearing that advice.

I have not and will not laminate it. However, I make make and laminate a photocopy. I have also heard you should file a copy of your card, both paper and electronically. Can't hurt!

Thanks, I hadn't heard the advice yet, I'll hold off on laminating it. I just stuck it in one of the GENCON badge holders. :)

At my second shot, the person that administered my shot suggested taking a picture or photocopying the card. They also mentioned that the local health departments get the same info and may be offering 'official' cards in the near future.

The only reason not to laminate is that you *might* need a booster. You could just get a second card in that case and they'll eventually make the transition to digital passports eventually, so it could all be moot.

Basically /shrug, you can laminate or not, depending on your preference.
