November 30th 2007


Anticipation, the 67th World Science Fiction Convention announces child rates and family rates. The rates for children are as follows:

“Child in Tow”: 0.00 CAD for ages 0–5 (born on or after August 6th, 2003).

Child membership: 75.00 CAD, full benefits for ages 6–12 (born on or after August 6th, 1996 and on or before August 5th, 2003). This rate will be good until April 30th, 2009.

Children who pre-supported Anticipation will get a 25.00 CAD rebate. Those who voted will get a 50.00 CAD rebate. These rates are cumulative so a child who both pre-supported and voted does not have to pay any additional fees to be a member.

Persons 13 years or older must have full memberships.

Anticipation also introduces a special family rate of 400.00 CAD for two adults and two children, with additional children paying 50.00 CAD. This rate will be valid until December 31st, 2007

If members of the family pre-supported Anticipation, an additional 25.00 CAD rebate applies for each person who pre-supported.

If members of the family voted on site selection for the 2009 Worldcon, an additional 45.00 CAD rebate applies for each person who voted.
