  • Iowa DIY 2013- Meeting room at the Comfort Inn???

    Since there's always a lot of activity the night before and the night after Iowa DIY, how about getting a meeting room at the Comfort Inn. We usually spend the time in one of the attendee's hotel rooms. A meeting room would be roomier and wouldn't bother other guests... at least not bother as much as if we were right next door. The price is $75 for four hours or $125 for more than four hours. If others are willing to chip in, it wouldn't cost anyone very much money.
    So, is anyone willing to make a "pledge?" If I get enough folks to say yes, I'll make the reservation, unless someone else can get it at a better rate.

    I'd contribute for Friday afternoon/evening. I'm close enough to Grinell I usually drive home Saturday night.

      Sounds like an excellent idea Mike and I am willing to throw into the hat. Not that I minded having everyone hang out in my room last year. But I was a bit worried about disturbing neighbors.

        So, that's a start. Thanks Craig and Ron. Anyone else care to jump in this one???

          if I can make it, no promise with all that going, on but I am really going to try, I will be more than happy to pitch in.

                  Thanks Arlis,
                  Pictures would be great, if it's not too much trouble. It's looking good for Friday night so far. Not sure if we need it for more than four hours, but it would be nice to have it as long as folks want to use it. It would be great to have it for at least four hours Saturday night too.
                  Thanks for the replies thus far.
                  Mike

                          The breakfast room is the meeting room?

                          I'm at least in for Friday night. After dinner?

                            Is the hotel going to be kosher with this, I mean, they know you are wanting to setup a small rock concert?
                            If we all reacted the same way, we'd be predictable, and there's always more than one way to view a situation.
                            What's true for the group is also true for the individual. It's simple: Overspecialize, and you breed in weakness.
