The Pub / Re: What's the Weather Like Where You Are?

Light snow right now, but about 2+ feet heading our way.

Should clear up by tomorrow night so I can still brew on Sunday.

Should be 'Congrats to the lucky 3400' -- That's a lot of homebrewers to wrangle.

And 2200 at the banquet.  I hope the room is bigger than last year.  It was almost impossible to move around.

I received a confirmation from the housing bureau when I booked my room yesterday.  When those reservations are loaded into the hotels system, will a separate confirmation from the hotel be sent?

Just curious.

This still was poorly done....perhaps we need to go to a lottery system as not everyone has the ability to spend a couple hours in the middle of the day to mess with this.

I'm not a fan of the lottery system.  I've been playing megabucks for years and I'm still not a millionaire.  ;D

Then the AHA posted the direct link on FB and I shared it far and wide.

I'm just curious, was this the only way the AHA reported the direct link?

The link was eventually hooked up the the conference website.  I think it was also on Twitter.  I didn't know what the link was until I got my confirmation email after booking on the phone.

You need to be an AHA member or a guest of a member.  It sounds like the Social registration is what you want.  However, they may sell out soon.

The banquet, however, looks like it is sold out.  There is a waitlist though.

I'd get the $195 ticket with Banquet.  The only difference from the full ticket is the Thursday seminars, right?

I'm sure you could find something to do on Thursday afternoon  ;)

Are you guys ready for the calm before the storm?  ;D

The woman at the hotel reservation center said she was shocked when the phone "blew up" this morning around 9am EST.   ;D

Word on the street is that the AHA is putting new hotel links on the page very soon.

Tomorrow actually:

Hotel Update: February 5, 2013, 10:45 am MT
Friday and Saturday nights are sold out at the host hotel. We’re in the process of securing more rooms at nearby hotels and will post more information on February 6.

A buddy just made online reservations and said that Saturday night was already sold out  >:(

I'm on the phone right now and it is full Saturday night!
I don't understand why when planning a conference for 2500 the AHA didn't announce multiple hotels at once.

It is most likely part of the contract with the hotel.  They want to be guaranteed so many room nights when they provide the discounted rate.  Even though it is a certainty that the hotel will sell out, they need their assurances.

Also will registration be done through a link on the Registration Details page or a link on the main conference page?

I assume it will be here:

but don't quote me on that.

I hope so, that does make me feel better about it.  I do have a plan in place in case 3:15 rolls around and I haven't been able to register yet.  One of the other members of my club agreed to do it for me once he has finished registering.

Quincy, since you may be in a rush, they just made a change last night to the conference tickets and made the banquet an add on to each of the packages.  So the full package is $205 plus $50 for the banquet.  I'd hate to have you get a ticket and miss out on the banquet.

So the link still isn't up, should we be anticipating the registration process to start late?  I might have to get someone else to register for me when they finish their own.  I'm worried that I might be cutting it close since I am only available until 3:30 today to try to register and the wife wont be home from work yet either to do it.

I don't think so.  The conference is done by the AHA.  The rooms are done by the hotel and a housing bureau.  I think the AHA will have the link up and running at the right time, since they control the servers.

I think the link is out there, just no one updated the website ( to reflect it.

No problem.  I'm sure the switchboard operator at the hotel wishing this was communicated better. 

1 down (hotel), 2 to go (conference reg & competition).  then maybe I can RDWHAHB.  ;D
