Fingers crossed that they make this trip!

10/6-10/12 - AKV Jambo
10/12-10/14 - homeless still - BW, BC or SD
10/14-10/20 - (or 21 if I can pull it off) BWV.
Fingers crossed that they make it...

A quick fly-by for me! I am so happy to hear Swolphin has the info out -- although they had a few "issues" getting the dates squared away, they seem to really *have it all together* where the organization of the Classic is concerned!

I will have my first free moments (since Monday) tomorrow. I will be doing the math, playing online, and making phone calls.

Elin, we will be in touch tomorrow!

Happy St Patricks Day weekend everyone!

I did not even do the math, since I can't go this year....(pouting now) I want to go next year, so everyone has to take pictures and give reviews when you get back...

I called and not sure if I got a CM who knows what he was talking about or not. I was quoted $595 per night with the two night stay - and I gave him the
EARFWC2. Does that sound right??? Since I have one night already on points and on on cash ($345) it's not worth it for me. I'll just buy the tickets for the event.

I thought the quote I had seemed crazy, but I also thought that the price seemed low on the website. Figure a room would cost $210 by itself so it was only another $60 for two passes? The whole thing just didn't add up.

I called them to see if I could modify my existing reservation and they cannot book it online, according to "John" in Customer Service. He tried and tried and it wouldn't work. He told me if I had a link that permitted me to book it online directly I should probably do it!

I was able to pull up exactly what I want and could have booked it this evening. At the rates listed.
