CCCS AWC Archives


I didn't purchase my convention tickets from the "Clive Cussler Collector's Society" official web site, will my tickets still be good?

Only CCCS registered ticket holders can attend the event. ID may be required. Only tickets purchased from the CCCS web site will be honored. If in doubt, contact the CCCS at cusslersociety@xpressdata.net

Can I mail some books to the hotel so I don't have to pack them through the airport with me?

You certainly can, but be sure to check with the hotel first. Some hotels charge a daily storage and handling fee so make sure you understand their policy before you mail anything.

This is our first Cussler Society convention and we were wondering if we needed to wear formal attire at the banquet dinner.

The dress is casual at all our events, wear whatever makes you feel comfortable (within reason)...

I won't be able to attend this years convention. Can I still purchase tickets for the raffle?

Our raffle items are an incentive to attract individuals to our conventions and are only available to paid convention attendees.

I'm a guest at the convention, am I eligible for the raffle drawings?

Only paid attendees are eligible for the raffle drawings. Guests with complimentary admission are not eligible for the drawings.

I'm not a member of the Clive Cussler Collector's Society, can I still buy tickets and attend?

Our Convention is open to the public, anyone can attend. The CCCS reserves the right to refuse admission to anyone for any reason.

I bought tickets to the convention, but they never came in the mail. When can I expect them to arrive?

We do not send out paper tickets. When you pay for your convention ticket, your name and contact information is added to the attendee list. When you arrive at the convention, check in at our registration booth and sign in. You'll receive a program with event details and an ID Badge. You must wear your ID Badge to attend the events.

What happens if I paid for my convention tickets in advance and it turns out that I will not be able to attend, will I get my money back?

You will be refunded 100% of your ticket cost, less any PayPal fees or expenses we incurred in the transaction, up to 30 days before the event. After the 30 day deadline, any cancellation will be handled on a case by case basis and up to the discretion of the CCCS event organizer.

I was wondering if the convention events could be separated so I would only be paying for the events I wished to attend?

Sorry, our convention tickets are only sold as a package deal. We do our best to put on an event that everyone will enjoy and get the best value for their ticket price.

What type of presentations we can expect?

We have speakers who may or may not provide a slide show/Power Point presentation–that will depend on them. We'll have a meeting room set up and the subject matter and presentation will be at the discretion of the speaker. However, in this setting John Vinson will address the group to convey information, introductions, acknowledge individuals and, hopefully, have several types of drawings, in which Cussler and Cussler-related collectibles will be given away to paid attendees.

The CCCS reserves the right to refuse admission, at any time, to anyone, for any reason.
