More hotel info

James and I are amazed that we have not really promoted the DE Event and already 7 hotel rooms have been booked. I had our sale rep add more rooms to our block of rooms and that some where rooms with2 queen size beds.

Website Updates

All,

The website (powerof10de.org / powerof10de.us) has been updated!

Not only does it have all of the event information published so far, it also has information about the event, us, and the cause (in case you are trying to explain it to your friends, or maybe a potential corporate sponsor.
(hint, hint; nudge, nudge; say-no-more, Say-No-More)

It also has a a history of the 2013 event, along with pictures (Thank you Cathy!), as well as a page on the shed (we're still missing the inside photos) and a photo gallery page.

Feel Free to explore it (it is a whole 6 pages), and let me know what other things I should add!

Thanks.

James

I've decided to go. Just booked my Mega Bus Ticket for $4 RT. Any place near the Senior Center or UDEL lot six where I can get some Breakfast. I don't know UDEL or Newark well at all.

Ok, if you consider Newark as a clock face, Lot 6 is at 11 o'clock.

Embassy Suites is at 6 o'clock, about 2.5mi walk.

Newark Senior Center is at 3 o'clock, about a 3mi walk from the bus station, and about a 2.6mi walk from Embassy Suites.

The best sections (for food) on Main St., Newark is at 12 o'clock, about 1mi from the bus station. Simply walk down the main road that Lot 6 is next to, and when you get to the Deer Park (a legendary pub, but they don't open until 10AM on Saturday), head due east (into the sun), down Main Street. There are MANY restaurants on Main St.

If you need a ride to either the hotel or the event, PM me or Denise, and we'll find someone (if not ourselves) to pick you up from Main St! We will be all over Newark on Saturday AM, getting ready for the event.

Thanks for attending!

An Ascii Map of the Event

Don't ask why I did this, but I figured a simple graphic may help those trying to figure out the above.

Locations are stars *. Road Intersections are +.
NOT TO SCALE!

Code:
\*Lot 6
 \ New London Rd
  \          Klondike Kates
   \--+-----*--------+
   /  |   Main St    |
  /   |              | Marrows Rd
 /    |S College     |  
/     |Ave       NSC |  
      |           *--|  
      |              |
Embssy|              |
Suite*+              |
      +--------------+
   RT 72/Chestnut Hill Rd



So, in the event you only have a typewriter, and you need to print out a map...

lobmcf,

Please, if you can't get it to us down here in lower, slower (and loving it) Smyrna Delaware, please let us know if you will be in the Newark area anytime soon, so we can get one of our wonderful volunteers to pick it up from you.

We want to treat Each & Every Donation with the respect it deserves, and that means making sure it is presented in the ABSOLUTE Best way that it can, fully photographed & captioned, and on the auction website WAY in advance of the actual meet, so that Everyone can be SALIVATING over it!

If you don't think you will be in Delaware anytime soon, please PM me (or send Denise / I an email - denise@ & james@ cayz.net . We'll come pick it up!

That goes for ANYONE else, so long as it is a reasonable drive away.

And, oh yeah, THANKS!

James

TickledPinkRabbit - yes, Yes, YES! We are always interested in having volunteers, either the day of the event, or ESPECIALLY before the event (getting things wrapped & ready).

I see you are from Baltimore - do you travel to Delaware / Dover-Smyrna area on occasion? If so, please send us an email (denise@ and/or james@ cayz.net.

That goes for anyone with the willingness to help out!

James

Update to Website (Video & Newsletter!)

For all our current and future volunteers, and all those interested, I've updated our website with the latest Volunteer Newsletter:

Volunteer Newsletter #2

Also, I've uploaded the Often-Heard-About, but never seen (yet) GKTW-DE Shed Video.
You might laugh, you will gasp, you might cry...
You might even think "I've just lost 11 minutes of my life I'll never get back".

It certainly isn't Oscar material. GKTW-DE Shed Video
