    30 minute sit down session with an MVP

    That's not much of a prize.

    During the main conference you can't swing a (metaphorical) cat without hitting a couple of MVPs and there's no problem in getting them to talk. Often the problem is getting them to stop talking.

    I registered before Jan 15th in order to get the 50% discount from PASS but I didn't have the code at that time.

    I really tried to search for it, but I couldn't.

    Are there any ways I can get the ticket for free after registering?

    This is my first PASS Summit and I won't loose this party!

    I attended my first ever PASS Summit in November. Because I heard about it through SSC, I used the code for the discount. But I never did get a ticket to the party. So while it might be convenient to have PASS handle the admin, it may also be a good idea to do some followup.

    If you use the code but don't get a ticket with your conference badge, speak to the ppl at registration. Stuff does sometimes get forgotten, but they're very good at fixing stuff on the spot.

    Prizes At the 2009 SSC Party were good.

    At the party I got a DVD of Dune - and funny thing is that I was due for my once-a-decade viewing!

    I also got a copy of the book Ender's Game - which is a stellar Science Fiction book that I've been wanting to read again as an adult.

    I'd suggest the following:

    Cube Chic: Take your Office Space from Drab to Fab!

    Extreme Office Crafts: Creative & Devious Ways to Waste Office Supplies & Company Time

    Cubicle Warfare: 101 Office Traps and Pranks

    I asked this once too. The answer is no. The ticket is $30 and would be well worth the expense. I too am in the same scenario and will be purchasing my ticket.

    The half price admission cuts down the profit on the Summit so far that PASS can't do a referral fee to us. The $30 is pretty low, and lower than the referral fee of $50. We count on that for the prizes as I run this event as a $0 budget item.

    I like how you think. There are plenty of great things on thinkgeek. Missile turrets, combat tanks, rc helicopters, binary clocks and the list goes on.
