Guys,

I'm on it.  It will be corrected by 12pm EST today.  Thanks for letting me know.  This thread is a good place to do so (anyone, please post your issues as they occur), as I will check it daily.  The coordinator Leah assured me that her staff is aware of the shoulder accomodations, but I will forward this to her.   I am sorry for the inconvenience and irritation.

Bob and Garry,

Done.  You are set per the dates in your posts.

For others, if you run into issues with reservations from 10am to 6pm EST, you can ask for Leah, who is our coordinator at the hotel complex directly, and you will get the service and pricing you deserve.  Or just post here and I will fix.

Those staying at the two Marriott properties can also use the free shuttle service from the airport.
You need to call the hotel after arrival for pick up.

I'm wondering is someone generating a list of individuals that are coming ?

If so the list could include empty passenger seats that could be offered to fellows or Ladies for that matter :) that are flying into the Columbus airport and once in the hotel need a lift from the hotel to Joe's Garage ...

Any thoughts ? After all Fellowship is what our Pagoda SL Group is all about :)

I know, some will rent cars ... even so empty rented car seats can be made available .... the expense to fly in is quite a bit why not save the car rental cost for some :)

Hello,

Thank you to all of you working to get good hotel rates, coordinating the event, etc.
It will be my first time attending PUB. Reading the post, it appears to be very interesting to arrive on Friday and stay Monday so that's what I plan to do. I will be flying from Miami, FL most probably into Columbus OH.

Looking forward to meet you all.

Gerardo

There has been for past PUBs, a running list of attendees on a sticky note I think. That would be good to do again.
For all those attending for the first time, please ensure you have your name tag on during the event(s) and be sure to introduce yourself around. Don't lurk in the background!
If you are known by an "alias" on this site, ensure you put that on your name tag too!
There's a lot of "old friends" from around the world seeing each other again, but don't let that stop anyone from joining a discussion--we're all about inclusiveness!

Yes,

The "PUB 2015, Who's Attending and from Where" thread will appear soon.  It will have who is attending, where they are coming from, if they are driving their Pagoda and if anyone will be riding with them. This will allow people to organize convoys, share rides, share  accommodations, and get an idea of the number of Pagodas participating in the event.

Thanks Joe! that be great to have that list.

Also Joe is there a cost to attend to cover your expenses (I may have missed that) or will it be part of the thread you mentioned above?

I had intended to use my Queensland MB CLUB name badge.
Might have to rethink to include the Pagoda SL club username .

Whatever you do, Bob, ensure that a name tag says "Hands_Aus" on it so we can find you!

Hold your horses, guys!
I am pretty sure that the local organizing committee will provide name tags again. You will not go unnoticed!   ;)
Here are examples from PUB2011.

I know all of you are chomping at the bit, but Joe, Alex and I are working out the details.  We've still got 5 months to go, and over the next few weeks, we'll have plenty of "Stickys" addressing who is coming, registration fees, agendas, topics, food, dietary restrictions, adult entertainment, and anything else you may think of.

So please bear with us, and once plans have jelled a bit more, we'll be able to be definitive.

From early estimates, this could be the biggest PUB yet.  8)

Hey, we're not chomping at the bit--just planning in advance. Better that than no planning at all!
As for name tags, yes of course I'm sure they will be provided--that's not my point. I've been to all but one gathering and in many cases there were latecomers who didn't get name tags, or many who didn't wear them. These were people I met, who I didn't know who they were until it was all over...

I second what Mike S. said :) I'm sure Mike M. knows that planning is half the job and planning can never start to early ... Nice to see that Joe, Alex, Mike and others are working on this :) Good work!

@mmizesko:

from your previous post... "I know all of you are chomping at the bit, but Joe, Alex and I are working out the details.  We've still got 5 months to go, and over the next few weeks, we'll have plenty of "Stickys" addressing who is coming, registration fees, agendas, topics, food, dietary restrictions, adult entertainment, and anything else you may think of."

Adult entertainment? Now my curiosity is really piqued!

Panzer,

Yes, I hear there will be some "stripped" down Pagodas, and that other members may bring their "private parts" and their may be some "swapping" going on.  Now that's Entertainment!!!

Joe:  I will be there as usual and will bring some goodies for sale. Would any MBCA members be interested in Silver Star Preservation Certificates?

Peter, can you define or provide some details about the .... Silver Star Preservation Certificates

I assume you judge the car(s) and then if appropriate issue a Certificate? I'm only a MBCA Member since last fall (I never came across the article if there was one).

Thanks

Edit 1 ... added BTW and Foot Note

BTW you know my car, we washed our cars together that Saturday morning in Williamsburg, VA in the Hotel Parking Lot ... remember you used some of my water from my wastepaper container that I dragged down from the hotel room LOL All the while there was a special place behind the hotel that people used to wash there cars with a proper water hose.

Foot Note, Check if the Hotel(s) have a water hose someplace were we can wash our cars on Friday for show and tell :)

Edit 2.... added the link for the PDF file

Never mid Peter, I found it :) all clear now.

Last time I was in Blacklick, there was a self serve car wash nearby. I always have used this place to clean the bugs off the car upon arrival and before "showing".

I believe it is on S. Hamilton Road not far from the hotels...but maybe Joe can verify that it is still there...
