I'm going to copy and paste the posts here because I'm sad that we keep losing them.
My original post: We seemed to have lost Rethrux during the upgrade....a small inconvenience but nothing we can't redo. I just hate to keep losing people's posts because it's fun to read them.
First the list of people going or thinking about going:
Rov (name tag done)
Monique (name tag done)
Malinda/JustMe (name tag done)
Lil/Una Salus Lillius
silverwind (name tag done)
G1223 (name tag done)
Godeskian (name tag done)
Kelela (formerly known as cak)
eechick (name tag done)
(tell me if I forgot someone)
We found a fairly cheap room close by the convention center. Only .85 miles. We booked a room for Friday, 18-Sunday, 20. Both Rov and I should have our cars, so we can still do stuff on Sunday after we all have to check out......if you leave on
Sunday. We're hoping to arrive early Friday morning.
This is the Comfort Inn hotel, only two stars but what are ya gonna do ;-). The Clarion was booked. Rov says it's the perfect hotel because it's on Ash Street. [biggrin.gif]
If you want to try this then follow Rov's instructions below. And remember....if anything goes wrong......blame Rov! (Or video games, he says).
Click on this, then choose Comfort Inn for brand name. Choose San Diego for destination, CA as state. Click July 18 as the start date, click two nights
Go next to San Diego, and click 'list hotels'
then, do a text search for CA465 or just look for "Comfort Inn Downtown"
Then click check rates, and book your room! Just reserve it, you can always cancel or change it later.
Under 'Marketing Program' go to Internet Rates then click 'Show Available Room and Rates'
You may cancel it so long as you do so 48 hours in advance. Plenty of time.
Be well.......Monique, now apparently Rov's secretary, too. :
Okay, that was the original posting. Richie and a few othes tried it and it worked okay. Several people have rooms now....if you have one and need a roomie or need a roomie and a room, please post and we can work things out.
Um, what else.....oh the link for the convention!!
