    Man I just called the hotel and spoke to a new person who insists that we only have 10 rooms booked so far. I know that's impossible - we have to be up to or beyond 15 by now. I will call them back after the Holiday and speak to the person who wrote up the contract.

    HOTEL ROOM UPDATE:

    Please go ahead and make your reservations as soon as possible. If you’re staying Friday AND Saturday the rate will be $94.99 for a single king or double queen room per night.

    Comfort Inn & Suites Grinnell
    Grinnell, IA 50112
    1630 West Street South

    (641) 236-5236


    PLEASE BOOK YOUR ROOM UNDER THE IOWA DIY GROUP.

    If/when we get 15 confirmed booked rooms for Friday AND Saturday we will have free access to the meeting room for our informal listening sessions – and that’s a sweet deal, trust me. Let’s make it happen. Even if you’re only booking for a single night, mention IOWA DIY so they know how many of us are there. It can’t hurt.

    To sweeten this deal a bit further the 15th weekend reservation is going to get a $50 PE GIFT CERTIFICATE.

    READY, SET, GO!!!!

    Just FYI- We don't have the official contract signed with the Comfort Inn for the discount and meeting room, but if you feel the need to book your reservation early please mention that you are with the IOWA DIY group, even if just booking for one night.

    Asking for the "group rate" could never hurt. If you cannot get the AAA rate, the worst that can happen for asking for the "group rate" is they tell you no.

    I'll be talking to the manager again tonight -- he's on the overnight shift this week. He's got all my info and even my credit card to hold the meeting room. I'm gonna make this happen.

    Probably not at the Comfort Inn if only for one night, however, if you are a AAA member you'll get the same discount.

    REGISTRATION UPDATE:

    http://www.midwestaudioclub.com/iowa...ors-attendees/

    Please follow the above link to register officially for the show. This will allow us to get a proper headcount for logistics, food, hotel, etc.

    If you're planning to show a speaker project please add a short description of the project. Your NAME and EMAIL address are required as we will be doing email updates as we get closer to the show.

    As we get registrants, we will update the EXHIBITOR/ATTENDEE page so that everyone knows who and what is going to be at the show.

    PLEASE take 30 seconds to do this....it's the only way to gather all the info in one place and make it manageable. Thanks.

    Dude, $74 a night and I got the last deal. I'm happy to throw a $20 into the extra room, but saving $50 on my stay? I couldn't walk away from that.

    Sorry.

    FYI-

    WEBSITE UPDATE:

    While it's not 100% finished, it has enough info to be launched. It's easy to navigate and it even shows up fairly well on mobile devices.

    Here's a quickie pic that shows how to navigate:



    Here's the official link: http://www.midwestaudioclub.com/iowa2013/

    Bookmark it, because it's going to be updated frequently. Before end of week, I'll be asking everyone who's planning to attend (attendees AND exhibitors) to register on the EXHIBITORS/ATTENDEES page. This will allow us to gather all the required info in one place so we can prepare accordingly for the event.

    You'll notice the SPONSORS page is currently blank, but don't worry. We have already secured several sponsors and some crazy nice toys for the door prize drawing.
