A couple of little FYIs....

It has been brought to my attention that it has been assumed that "I" am the one putting the Gathering together this year. Nothing could be farther from the truth! I couldn't put together a snap together model plane! I am just updating the information, I am just the messenger here so folks will get information as needed.

We all need to work together to pull this thing off. I am seeing lots of information here and there about certain things such as sound systems and whatnot and that is just GREAT! We can all work together to get this thing off the ground and in flight.

Between here and Facebook, it is difficult to put all of the information out so everyone can see it.

Secondly, so far there has been only 5 rooms booked. We need to get 30 booked at the hotel by May 20 or we can't have the room rates promised or the playing area. I may even suggest that if you "maybe going" or "more than likely going" to go ahead and make your reservations. That would help tremendously. If you find out that you can't make it later then you can cancel withing 72 hours of the reservation and there is no charge on your credit card. Admittedly, I am the world's worst procrastinator and haven't made mine yet but will in the next couple of days.

I am not trying to deceive the hotel. My biggest fear is not having rooms available if per chance the hotel overbooks. This is fairly popular hotel and is not really hurting for business. I would hate for anyone to feel compelled to have to stay across the street.

Anyway, looking forward to seeing EVERYONE there! It is ALWAYS a great time!
