    I thought that'd get your attention Scott. I think we could arrange for a game or two. You could try your hand at killing someone besides me, your gal, and your sis; get some real competition. Still not lending you my Tarkin again though :p

    Well, our CR was taken away by the Army, and haven't heard from him since, but I will see if I can get onto that thread, thanks.

    Actually, Lily Wan and I have traded online, so I look forward to playing with her and everyone else. I have _ALL_ of them so far, so am willing to loan some out to people.

    Arg!

    Ok, Dajuan and Djinn... I'm getting pulled away on personal buisness tonight, but when I get home I'll get that stuff posted to the forums that needs to go up. I'll also create a main thread in here to link back to.

    Sorry for the delay!
    Gack!

    ok all we have 20 rooms blocked at the St. Louis Adams Mark for this event and 2 I repeat 2 are all that have been reserved... so anyone worried about no rooms at the inn... If everyone that reserves a room would be kind enough to post in here that you have along with how many it would be greatly appreciated and remember they need to be reserved by April 25th in order to guarantee a room.


    As we have confirmation of rooms being reserved we will update the first post to show how many are left.

    I spoke with Rob Sewell, and he said there should be no problem with booking any of the room types they offer. He suggested we call the 314-241-7400 numeber and ask for reservations, as opposed to using their 800 number. Let me know if there is anything else!

    I'm planning on heading down from Chicago Friday, 6/9--either after work or in the morning if I can get the day off--and then coming back Sunday evening. This should be fun!

    Oooh, purdy.

    I'm looking to pull an overnighter w/some night owls by leaving on Thursday night and hoping to pull into StL on Friday morning sometime. Get checked in, take a nap, then let the fun begin!

    Then on Sunday I'm heading to OK to go visit my best friend (and the OKCFF) and I'm not actually heading back home until Tues or Wed of that next week.

    Yay vacation! :D



    ps: providing my new job lets me off for a week.

She said that she might beable to find a good deal if there aleast 50 or more people. Now i'm not sure how many people still want to go and hav't found a hotel. I hope this helps jasconsolojedikinght

    Well, since about 18 of the 20 rooms we have reserved are still open (see first post) It shouldn't be a big deal. As is we are actully getting a decent rate for that weekend. It is better/same as what you would find on the travel discount sites. My wife (Mara_Jade_Raven) works in the hotel industry and negotiated our rates.

    If we need help we will be sure to let you know. Thanks for offerring ;)

    Hello, first time posting here. I am a fairly active member in Kansas City and I post at http://www.heartofthealliance.com and plan on attending the Meeting in June. My only problem is that I plan on reserving a room for the weekend with a KC person, however that person keeps flaking out. One week he can go, the next week he plans on joining a branch of the military. And it keeps going back and forth. So, if there is someone that wants or needs to split room cost, let me know... You can PM through http://www.heartofthealliance.com user name bmxjedijoe or e-mail me at bmxjedijoe@netscape.net. I have a credit card and can reserve the room, I am easy to get along with and I don't stink. Let me know! Word. Thanks

    Edit Got it taken care of. Thanks!

    You can tick the hotel list another one, because GsWookie and I revserved our room. We're waiting money to transfer to Paypal for the registration and on tax refunds to do the train tickets, but we're on the way now.
