Those members wanting free airport shuttle pick-up need to schedule your arrival time with Ramada by May 11.
MW*C 36 hotel reservation request procedure and forms are now available on the MW*C website (www.mediawestcon.org).
As expected, MediaWest*Con 36 has signed contracts for Ramada Lansing and Comfort Inn. Ramada will be the default hotel, with the Comfort Inn next door as overflow. We hope to have the reservation process in place soon.
Carol Lynn will continue as MW*C Hotel Liaison, and member reservations will go through her. This is the only way we can be assured of getting properly credited for rooms reserved in the host hotel, which is what pays for much of the expense of putting on MW*C. It also assures that only MW*C 36 members will be getting into our room block, thereby helping reduce the possibility of conflicts with mundanes.
Our apologies for the many delays. We would also like things to have gone more efficiently and had everything in place sooner, but real life of late has been anything but convenient.
For those who are curious about the Days Inn next door which was closed during MW*C 35, the furnishings and fixtures were auctioned off in September, and this week the building was used for firefighter training! It has been reported that the new owners plan to demolish the building and rebuild with a new hotel and shops.
From Ramada website:
Please Note: Our pool will be closed effective May 26 until June 1, 2014. It will be open for use on June 2. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
Rooms are still available in Ramada! If you haven’t gotten a membership because you didn’t think you could get in the host hotel, think again!
Membership deadline has been extended to May 10.
The MW*C 34 hotel reservation request procedure is now available on the MW*C website (www.mediawestcon.org), and will also be in Progress Report 1, which will be out shortly.
We (Lori, Gordon, and Carol Lynn) have met with the hotel to settle the bill for MW*C33, which has now been paid. We also discussed some issues we had last year in various areas.
Now we are waiting on a proposed contract for MW*C 34.
