25 MARCH 2012
This sounds like an April Fool's joke, but CCI is selling more badges off on Tuesday, 27 March, at 8:00 am PST/11:00 am EST.
Why? Because of the fiasco that was the March 3 registration day. Because of the glitches and CCI's guilty conscience. (Yes, even though last year was even worse.) To assuage the anger of the thousands who did not get a badge, CCI is doing an early version of the usual refunded-badge sale. I don't understand how many badges could already be turned in, which makes me question if this will just be a second round of frustration for those of you without badges, so at the risk of sounding mean - don't get your hopes up.
Sorry to be so vague. I'm relying on word of mouth, as the email with details only went to people with Member IDs who didn't get a four-day or Saturday badge. (I imagine this will piss off plenty of people who only have a Saturday badge and want the same opportunity to try for a four-day badge.) Apparently there are more single day badges than four day badges, no surprises there.
There are no details available on the CCI site. The link is in the email you should have received if you qualify for the resale. Good luck.
