Just tried the English Inn.  They are all booked up for Saturday night (still some Friday available), and no waiting list, so I'll be trying something to the west in Waynesboro or Staunton it looks like.  Football....who knew! :-[  Let me know if anyone decides to cancel or move somewhere else.  Thanks!

AS far as places to stay during the PUB I found several nice airbnb near the convention site. Go to airbnb.com and search near the PUB site.

...and that would be Canadian dollars-not sure why it's quoted CAD but it's even less if you are using greenbacks.  Like USD $560.

Tom,

It changes automaticly to CDN dollars since I opened the site here in Canada. Our $ is only 0.75 cents to your dollar ;)

Anyway, that looks like a great spot for 4 couples :)

We had reservations at a nice B&B just a few miles from the event.  Unfortunately we had to cancel those when we found the event sold out (can't take a chance on a waiting list).  So there is at least once nice room at the Iris Inn   www.irisinn.com   if you are into B&Bs....
Having just had our vacation leave approved, we now are heading to the Dominican Republic for a long weekend.  Had to commit now to get the huge savings.
Was really forward to the SL gathering in my relative back yard!

Hi all
Unfortunately I had to cancel my PUB attendance due to business travel. I don't know who was next on the wait list, but I now have a reservation at the University for both Friday and Saturday that I no longer can use. I was thinking that if someone wanted to get on the phone with me, we could get it transferred to their/your name. I know rooms are hard to come by, and I didn't just want to cancel if someone else from PUB could use them.
Please contact me if interested. If I don't hear from anyone in the next few weeks, I will have to cancel.

I also had to cancel - conflict with the Colorado Grand. I have a reservation for Friday and Saturday nights at the UVa hotel. Before I cancel, please send me a message if you are interested in the room.

Also, note that we released 3 waiting list slots this evening so if you are planning on attending from the waiting list, I would encourage you to jump on the hotels as they free up as space in the area is very limited.  Thanks

I have a room reservation at the English inn for Friday Night that I will not be using.  I found a room at the U VA Darden.  If anyone wants it, email me and then we can do the transfer.

I was all set up for a great trip with rooms (two rooms for my nephew and me) for Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday Nights at The English Inn at Charlottesville.  We even reserved two rooms for Monday night, Sept 18 at the Hampton Inn Hagerstown, the end of the Post PUB Scenic Drive North.

Because my nephew's father (my wife's brother) has just been diagnosed with late stage lung cancer and will be undergoing radiation treatment for the whole month of September, we can't go.  We've just cancelled all our PUB event tickets.

I haven't cancelled any of the hotel rooms yet because I don't want to deprive any PUB participants of using them if they are needed.  The Hampton Inn Hagerstown is probably not a problem for anyone because it's far from the football weekend at Univ of Va. in Charlottesville, but please contact me quickly if you want to try to transfer the tickets for The English Inn of Charlottesville.

I need to know quickly in order to cancel those that won't be needed for PUB and transfer those that will be used by one or more PUB participants.  I don't even know if they are transferable.  How is it done?

Thanks Tom, and sorry you will not be able to attend.

This is an opportunity for anyone that wants to attend PUB-Virginia.  We are fully subscribed but have now cleared the waiting list.  If you go to the ticket site, there will be a ticket available to purchase.

Best,

Tom

The hotel rooms mentioned in Reply #38 above are still available but unless someone needing a room or rooms for PUB 2017 contacts me, they will be cancelled on Friday, September 8.

If I remember correctly, all rooms have two queen beds.

They are:
   (2) rooms at The English Inn of Charlottesville   Thursday, Sept. 14     Booked at $119 each
   (2) rooms at The English Inn of Charlottesville   Friday, Sept. 15         Booked at $129 each
   (2) rooms at The English Inn of Charlottesville   Saturday, Sept. 16     Booked at $129 each
   (2) rooms at The English Inn of Charlottesville   Sunday, Sept. 17       Booked at $119 each
   (2) rooms at Hampton Inn Hagerstown              Monday, Sept 18       Booked at $109 each

I have already cancelled my PUB tickets but will hold these rooms until September 8 for anyone who needs one or two rooms for one or more nights as reserved above for PUB.  Those rooms not transferred to a PUB attendee will be cancelled on Sept. 8.

Please EMAIL ME.  I don’t always see my PM’s immediately.

One of the rooms at The English Inn of Charlottesville has been transferred to another PUB attendee.  I still have one room reserved for Thursday through Sunday nights.

I also have two rooms for the Monday night following PUB at the end of the Post-Pub Northern Tour.  The two rooms are at the Hampton Inn Hagerstown.  If no one wants them, I will cancel them on September 8.

I will hold the remaining room at The English Inn of Charlottesville - (Thursday thru Sunday nights) until September 8, then I will cancel it if no one wants it.

The remaining room that I had reserved at The English Inn of Charlottesville for Thursday, Sept. 14 through Sunday, Sept. 17 has been taken.

When I transferred the first room, apparently the hotel cancelled the remaining room, but they had rooms left, so when I called to transfer the second room and found it was cancelled, they said they had rooms for the second taker.

All my reservations at The English Inn of Charlottesville are no longer available for transfer.
