So whats it take to attend a DSC ? Have never been, but always go to SCI. Just received refund for air fare from delta. The DSC web site says nothing about price etc. Looks like we can fly from Idaho right now for 237.00 each. Might be a good change.
I believe the day rate is $25 and $100 get you for the entire convention. You do not have to become a DSC member.

The biggest challenge with DSC is getting a hotel thats reasonably close to the convention center..

The Omni (next door to the convention center) always sells out within just a few minutes...

As long as you dont mind driving a little bit, there are lots of good hotels at decent prices a few miles away though..

I think the price to enter DSC is $25? Or if you sign up and become a member at the convention entrance is free..

Another option is to volunteer (this is what I do every year).. you work a couple of hours on one day of the convention (lots of options on volunteering.. everything from working the entrance, to manning a coffee cart, to security, to move in and move out, etc..) and then admission is free for the entire convention..

It takes far less cash to attend the DSC convention. No membership required and the passes are much cheaper.

A very generous offer, either way, I think you should bring a couple of briskets with you to DSC....

Yes sir, no need to pre buy the tickets.

I drive over every year with my kids. We usually get a hotel about 5-10 min away and then Uber over each day. Cheaper hotel, no parking to mess with, makes it easy. Just buy tickets at the door, although I would say to keep watching the website this year in case they have to enforce 50 or 75% capacity rules. They might Pre-sell tickets as it get closer so they can cap daily admission. But that is just a guess.

What @Mike B said is correct this year because of Covid rules. Normally you just walk in and buy 1, 2 or 3 day pass tickets. DSC as of last week hasn't determine the exact method of selling the tickets this year so far. Consider joining as a member and you will be notified directly by DSC of any changes being made up until the last minute.

You may keep checking to see if there are advanced day pass sales. It is possible this year.
Banquet tickets go on sale THIS MORNING so if you plan on attending any banquets you better act fast.

When I talked to Kameron at DSC, she advised that capacity (at the moment) was limited to 60%. That could cause lines to get in to not exceed maximum occupancy. She suggested buying tickets ahead of time and have them mailed to you. You can skip the line to purchase tickets and only worry about the line to get in. That's my plan, at least.

I wish my place was close to the show, we would have our damn party! Enough booze is consumed during the annual AH dinner that there is no way the old corronie would stand a chance. And Jeffery Epstein didn’t kill himself.lol
Don't worry about the corronie stuff. It's looking more and more like we may be doing "Patriot shit" right about then....

Reports are that the City of Dallas have suspended all actives at the convention center until further notice. Guess we'll see how this plays out over the next few months.

So far, I only see early December cancelled.

On another note, the South Texas DSC chapter dinner was moved from February to April. The dinner is usually right after the convention.

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there

Greetings Mr. Rutledge. My apologies for the latent reply, cell/email prohibited during working hours, apx 72 a week, yikes! I just wanted to thank you for keeping me in mind for possible 577 loads. I actually purchased a few rounds, however, the firearm is still on the fence at this point.
Many Thanks, again. Regards, Dan.
