I know that a few people locally have shown interest in an ACEN group for 2010. We're right at the 5 month marker so now is the best time to book. If we can get a good list together We can probably find even better rates with group fares so as the list expands expect the prices to go down, but as it stands:
If we fly out on the evening of Wednesday, May 12th (circa 8pm so people have time to leave work and brave public transport) rates are quite fair at $84/per, flying out Thursday will add another $20
Yet again returning on that following Tuesday yields the best rates, $84; an earlier is yet again +$20.
I know most of you have jobs and what-not to return so I'll put it all on the table.
Irregardless of location if we can get a decent group to register together (20ish) the price will be a modest $45 for the weekend. If you have any friends/family that are attending as well that will help aid this number. The way I see it with such a large community 20 people should be pretty easy.
Also irregardless of local we can lump ourselves with other editors attending. The hotel fare I am going to assume the 4-person price for now we'll split it to the "per-person" cost as the group comes along. I called today both the DoubleTree and Hyatt Regency still have rooms available, I'd like to move quickly so we can book one of these asap. As it stands the Hyatt is going 165/night (divided by as many people as wind up in a room) and the doubletree is $129. EDIT:
The Aloft has doubles remaining (the other two could make no guarantees) and is quite a bit less, $99.
All Atlanta, or even surrounding area people are encouraged to participate
Please post here if interested and to what level (IE: flight and room, just admission, etc...)
Any questions feel free to ask or Pm me. If we can get 10 on board for the flight at the very least the rates may very well drop.
