Official time: 9:00 am be at the plant, at the visitor center. (like we planned, but they actually asked if we could be any earlier and I said that's the earliest, because of those driving from out of town....they need to communicate a little better, my opinion...it's only 4 days away!
) We are not lining up in front of the visitor center like last year, they want us to park in the lot by the visitor center, and meet inside. I don't know for sure, but by the tone of the man I talked to there, we may not be able to do this tour again after this year. Sounds like they are short on help for "events" like this, and I wouldn't be surprised if it's real hard after this to get a tour scheduled. It's not like I didn't give them enough notice, I've been talking to them since January.
I hope all of you who need a hotel booked already, because I called there today and they said they held the 10 rooms for us till this past weekend, then had to book because they only had ONE person book under "Lambda Meet". I figured out that "hoffjny" also booked, but not under the reserved section (hopefully you got the reduced rate.) Anyway, this concerns me because I know there are a total of 5 "parties" coming from out of state, counting all forums, so I would have thought all of you would have been staying at the hotel. Keeping my fingers crossed that perhaps some of you booked under yourselves, and not under "Lambda Meet".
At any rate, don't let what I just said sour the mood....I'm still really excited for this tour, and meeting all of you.
Oh, and for those coming for dinner Thursday night at Logan's, it's all set for reservations at 7:00pm.
It's reserved under the name "Lambda". That's for those who are not meeting us first at the hotel lobby at 6:30, for those people we will all drive over there together, but still...good to know what the table reservations are under.
