October is Exmo Conf. time! I really would love to go, and have heard from several of you that you'd like to also. I was thinking about getting a car-pool going. I have 7 seats in my van. We could split costs and hotel fees. If anyone is interested in getting in on this, please let me know!
you can sleep 4 adults in the double-queen rooms at the hotel and the rooms are discounted to $105 for exmormon conference attendees. It's nice to stay in that hotel cause you stay up late and get drunk :D. I hope we can make it, but don't need a carepool.
Kathy, I replied to the NOM thread (but here's better) - please put me down as "probably." There are some work/vacation time logistics that I probably won't know until quite a bit closer, like end of summer. If the plans fill up with folks and I'm left out, I can manage with my previous plan of flying down. But this sounds like a lot more fun.
I'm chiming in late -- last year the block of rooms the hotel arranges for us was gone by about 3 weeks before the conference. After that happens, I can sometimes get more rooms IF they are available. Two years ago, by the time our block was filled, there wasn't another room available in the hotel. So I'd say - don't wait longer than mid-August. The block ends about 3-4 weeks before the conference (can't remember the exact date right now). Remember also: The reservation includes a free, made-to-order breakfast in the mornings, and an open/hosted bar each night in the atrium for two hours. Also -- the one consideration that can be a pain if the room is housing 4 or more (I think all the suites have a pull-out couch as well) is that there is only one bathroom. But even with only two in the room, sharing the cost -- it's a real bargain!! You could easily sleep 3 with the pull-out if sharing a Queen bed with a semi-stranger is too much for you!! :-)
