There are usually partial registrations that you can make and I think
that these should be published along with the regular registrations. I
can't understand why? Some people do not want to go to the banquets,
some don't want to go on the tours, etc.. Check with the registrar to
see what would fit you.

My sentiments, but I usually get up early and join the "herding" for the
buses. I wish the conventions would come up with a better loading
system...reminds me of penning cattle. Perhaps the registrar can work
something out for you.
