I think I'm going to fly...
We are heading there the day before with as much stuff bought ahead of time that I can (food, dr pepper, beer) you know, the staples of life. I figure the extra room on the way back is where we will put all the good stuff we acquire during the 5 days.
Ok, I booked my flights today. I can go round trip from Sac for a little less than $120. Since it costs me $60 to fill my tank, and I know I'll need at least 2 tanks of gas just to GET there, I figured flying will be more beneficial to me. I called the Holiday Inn and they said that shuttles run from the airport all the time, and it's $15. Parking at the hotel is $17 per day, so again, the shuttle seemed like to a good deal. I'll make sure I bring extra money for taxis...since we are still all doing dinner one night in the city, right? Just thought I'd FYI all of this for anyone else in the group unsure of how to get to down to LA. There weren't a lot of the cheapest flight options left, so if you are thinking about flying, I'd start looking NOW...
That's a great price for the flight! If I weren't so dead-set on driving I'd consider it. I like having a car while I'm down there to get around. I may even be persuaded to carpool with people once we are all down there for dinners etc.(and I've unloaded my car into the hotel room).
Yeah, I really wanted to have my car with me, too. That was my one hang-up about flying. I want to be able to "go" when I want to, and not have to worry about a taxi or other transportation. That part will be a bummer for sure.
Dont worry, the Bith Mobile will have an extra seat down in LA
The Matmobile may have an extra seat or two as well.
Alright, I can officially say I am getting excited about CIV now.
The plans are in place, the costumes are (slowly) coming together, and I am SO ready for a vacation.

Westin Bonaventure Hotel Okay gang, here's the scoop:
The Good News: The Bonaventure has given us a very nice, affordable package and it includes a dance floor and a cash bar. The cost is $25 per person.
The Bad News: We need at least 100 people to commit to this.
Participation is open to friends, family, total strangers as long as they are accompanied by an RL member, Forum members, Jedi Assembly, FanForce, whomever. If we hit the number then we're good. If we don't hit the number then the cost will be more depending on how many sign up.
Once we look like we have our "guest list" assembled, I will post information for paying.
Please post your screenname, real name, and the number of people in your party.
For those who have special dietary needs, here is the menu:
*Asian Veggie Spring Roll
*Mini Beef Burritos
*Chicken Quesadilla (chicken/melted cheese on folded flour tortilla)
*Mini Crab Cakes
*Seasonal Fruit Platter
The bar is a "No Host" so you will have to pay for drinks; please don't faint at the prices because the bar needs to clear at least $500 - otherwise we pay the difference.
*soft drinks $4.25
*mineral water $4.50
*non-alcoholic beer $4.75
*domestic beer $5.00
*bar selections (cocktails) $6.25
*wine $6.50 per glass
If any SVRF members want to attend, please assign one member here to post how many in your group would be able to go on the RL forums in the "Celebration IV" thread.
Ok I have a ride to CIV (Thanks again Belda)
LDV are you still going to rent a truck to stow what knot to CIV?
Anyone have any space in a room?
I am signing up for Hyperspace (by mail) hopefully today.
Any suggestions or advice would awsome.
As Club Liason, I think I should be the point of contact for any SVRF members wanting to attend. Just post here or send me a PM to let me know if you plan on attending.
How soon do you need a number, Matt?
Yeah but wont one of those seats be occupied by Carried Fisher you lucky boy.
Your credentials are impeccable, but I think Max should be the point of contact
Yeah, Max will be fun to deal with...we can pinch his cheeks and bounce him on our lap. We may not be able to get away with that with Tionne, huh?
Yeah, I'd probably send you through the nearest wall at light speed if you tried that with me.
Has Max figured out counting yet? Is he balancing your checkbooks? I'm sure he will be in no time flat!
Well he did just get cast in the new star wars tv show as Baby Luke.
Oh, don't let me know. To avoid confusion and miscounting, just post for your group on the RL boards.
Actually, it'll be Carrie, with Natalie on her lap.
What can one say, but "Oh My".
$17 per day parking even though you are a guest of the hotel? Ack!! I'm not used to that. No wonder I hate big cities.
So, do they sell parking places to people visiting the convention center? So, what are the chances we will arrive on Saturday, and as guests of the hotel, still have no place to park?
I believe paying the fee guarantees your spot.
That's our Matt!
her favorite wingman.
I'm not even going to touch that one
Thanks, Jedidoria. I'll so that.
--Jedi Dark Night
Do I need to apologize to the Council for him now....or just take him straight to Mustafar and save us all the trouble?
If anyone in here going by train?
I am leaving the 23 from Modesto.
Hopes see you guys in Los Angeles.
