Dates & Motel Rates

Post by tombeach » Mon Oct 06, 2014 10:18 pm

Didn't know where to post this so I posted it here.

Are the dates for 2015 set yet?

Will there be a special reduced rate for Winterfest attendees? Do we know what that reduced rate will be?

Thanks

Tom

Tom,

I have the year wrong on the main page for the site. I will double check with Merv before I mod it to say 2015, just in case I have the dates wrong too.

Also I sent Dave and email about registering.

I don't have the paperwork (it is in storage somewhere) but 99% certain it starts Feb 6th thru the following Saturday. The Super Bowel is on Feb 1st (correct?) and we always start the following Friday. As to the rates. They increased those somewhat to $65 or $70 per night (sorry this is from memory) but it is good FOR ANY ROOM. That means if you can book a four bed suite (two adjoining rooms) the rate is the same. They also kept the conference room within reason. Not sure what the daily fee will be yet. That always depends on how many show up. Hope that helps and I will follow up as I get more settled in here.

Merv the Superbowl is February 1st 2015.

Winterfest should begin on the Friday the 6th and end on Sunday the 15th. Correct?

Thanks John and Merv. That helps a lot. Because checking the current rates they were coming in at around $88.00 or so a night. $65-$70 is a good difference in my world. Okay, Feb 6 start. Thanks.

Correct on the date. I will email the hotel to confirm the room rate.

I fixed the dates on the main page. I also found some 2014 photos I'll upload. Be sure to take pictures this year so we have something to show on the website after.

Feb 6th for a start date is great. Merv - Carol says she loves you because we will be able to have Valentine's Day together!! I will try to get there fairly early so we can get a head start on setting up our game.

Has there been any movement regarding a fixed room rate yet? Assume we need to mention Winterfest when booking to get? Thanks.

Tom,

I am not sure what the exact rate is, for me it doesn't matter, I'm going whether its 60 a night or 75. It would be nice to know though.

Has anyone booked a room yet?
