I just called the Fairfield by Marriott and they have nothing their system yet. The clerk left a message for the sales manager to give me a call.
I'll be calling her on Tuesday, also. Thanks for letting us know, and post her response if you get one before I do.I just called the Fairfield by Marriott and they have nothing their system yet. The clerk left a message for the sales manager to give me a call.
1) The Reg. fee is for the event & charity or for the hotel booking reservation? I understand the site will be updated later, I just unsure where the link was for the fee and to whom or what it goes to?
2) I did check the hotels links listed and have no problem with them. Is the May 18 2017 listed for the registration for the event date or the hotel booking reservations?
I think this was posted already, but I will say it anyway: Reservations made in the blocks are like any other reservations, and can be cancelled up to the day before your scheduled arrival without penalty. I do request that, should you have to cancel, you do it as soon as possible, preferably before the 18 May cutoff date. It helps the hotel, and it makes us (OK, me) look a lot better to them.1) The event registration fee of $80 pays for the event materiel: Badges, Badge Holders, Directional Signs, Printed Schedules and Maps; the Thursday Night Banquet; and the Wednesday Night Barbeque. It also covers the costs of any meeting rooms that are not comp'ed to us for using a bunch of hotel rooms; a photographer to take the group car picture; and a security guard to watch over the cars every night.
The amount is based on estimated costs in some cases, and anything that doesn't get spent on the event will be donated to the charity. I'll be happy to show the balance sheet to any attendee who is interested, and may even display it during the banquet even though some final expenses won't hit until after everyone goes home.
The payment information for the registration fee will be in the event website that should go live sometime in October. The fee will be paid into an account that I have set up for the event.
2) The 18 May date is actually three things:
A) It is the last day you can book a room in one of the blocks and still get the reduced rate.
B) It is the last day that you can register (and pay) for the event without paying a late registration fee, and
C) It is the day you can cancel your registration for the event and still get your $80 refunded to you.
I hope this answers your questions. Please feel free to ask about anything else that concerns you.
Both blocks (Sheraton and Fairfield) should work with their respective rewards programs. Also: Neither block has any attrition clause, so if you can get a better rate on your own, I have no problem with you using that instead of our block. There will be a check-box on the registration form asking where you are staying, and whether you used the block, but it will be for informational purposes only so that we can understand, and let the hotels know, where our people stayed.
It appears as though Chevy has a different take on that.The motor belongs in the front. If people wanted mid engine, there are plenty of examples around that can be picked up today.
