    FYI for parking....

    Free parking is available at the Denver Marriott DTC (there is a charge for Valet Parking) and the Hilton Gardens Inn. The Office Park across the street will be charging $10.00 a day this year if you want to park your car in their lot. The attendants will be there handing out parking passes on Friday until midnight, Saturday until midnight and Sunday until the convention ends. There will be NO OVERNIGHT parking in Office Parks lot. Cars in violation of this will be towed. Getting to the convention early makes even more cents?I mean sense.


    crazy thing i used to work in that office park across the street...NOTHING goes on there during the weekend. *rolleyes*

    Can't blame them for wanting to make money.

    See you there Joey!

    And yeah, that sucks about the parking. I foresee a lot of cars being towed as people are definitely going to forget and leave their cars in the lot overnight.

    Wow.. I pretty much parked there every year. Not anymore I guess! They'll make money this year, but next year people will wise up and it will be abandoned.

    Maybe we need to invest in an orange cone so if someone needs to run out they can put that in their spot :p

    Wow, that's just dumb. Seriously dumb. No overnight parking in that lot --there isn't enough room at the hotel for people who stay there as it is. What a cluster ****.

    One more reason to leave this stupid location. :mad::mad::mad:

    don't forget you can park at the hilton garden....they don't have a lot but it is something.

    and i like the marriott for CON. I don't like that they are charging across the street. I will tell you that next year they said the hotel is going to start charging...

    What time does "overnight" start? Midnight? 2 am?

    And I totally agree with Obey_Wann that this is a total crock of stinky poo. I park there every year since I don't get a room and can't show up early. I have other stuff going on and can't be at the con all day every day. I'll just have to troll for a spot hoping somebody leaves. I'm not willing to pay $10 each day that I go down there to park Not gonna happen.

    does anyone know if the hotel will validate if you have a room? how much is the valet? and does $10 a day mean you get a ticket and can come and go? should the rmff invest in some 2 day parking passes? maybe the parking attendant can rope off a spot for us.

    Neither the hotel nor the con has anything to do with that parking lot, therefore, no validation.

    Next year hotel parking will be $2.

    I don't remember. They charged it to the room though. I think it was around $10 but I'm not sure. It was funny watching him get through the snow to bring my car back to me. Heh.

    I'm not going to lie, that huge snowstorm made the con a thousand times cooler last year! It was like being trapped on a snowy island with hundreds of other nerds, and bathtubs full of disgusting blood wine to keep us alive![face_sick]

    I have secured stanchions from WOTR & DH says he has the rope. I just need someone to pick them up Friday. I was late getting to the museum last night and didn't want to dig around in Hangar 2 for them @ 9:30PM.

    FYI-If someone who has contact with the Starland honchos wants to float a publicity shot with Tim Rose coming out to sign the X-Wing, I can try to set it up with WOTR. Might be a good way to get press for the con and the museum.
