Cool Zips... I'll update the list as soon as I receive my weekly update from the Hyatt.

Oh, so you are saying you will be getting out of your crowded room and switching to my room. I like this.

I just updated the arrivals list.

Again, if your name is in red on the list, you need to register for Fest.

If you have a hotel room and your name is not on the list, you need to contact the hotel and make sure that they know you're part of TDIClub.

Thanks, and please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Canast, I added you to the pending list.

Just a reminder to folks who are staying at the hotel. You need to be registered for TDI Fest. If you have a hotel confirmation and you're not registered with us for Fest, you may do so at http://www.tdifest.com

If you don't know who you are, check for your name on the red list in my second post (3 people so far).

Please let me know if you have any questions, problems, or concerns.

Thanks!

-Lawson

The list has been updated. If your name is in RED, you need to register for TDI Fest.

The numbers are looking better folks, but please don't delay. Remember, you don't actually have to pay for your room until you check out... so go ahead and call the hotel even if you don't have the cash now.

Sootman and I have a room booked Fri-Sun nights. I did book using a AAA discount that was at $89.00 a night. So not sure if my res. will show up as part of the TDIFest. Do we get special privileges being under the TDIFest discount? If so, I will change the res. If not, I just saved $30 using AAA (or by switching to geigo).

We are glad that you saved money, however, part of our rate includes our use of banquet rooms, set up and tear-down for our events among many other things. In order for us to get that, we had to guarantee a number of rooms would be used at our rate. So, yes, the group as a whole gets special privileges.

I know we have stated this many times in the past, we all need to keep in the back of our minds that this Fest is supposed to be used to show appreciation to Fred and the club. This means that yes their might be cheaper alternatives out there, but it will be counter productive to the meaning of Fest.

Also, I'm not sure what the AAA discount gets you. Perhaps you don't get the free WiFi.

As mentioned in the Camping @ TDIFest thread, our room rates are negotiated as a package. That package includes the use of the hotel's surface parking, ballroom, and banquet suites at no charge to TDIClub.

Make sure you call the hotel and tell them that you're with TDIClub. If the Hyatt is offering promotions on their website, then that promotion can still be applied to our room block without any penalty to us. I don't know if the same is true for AAA. Please call them and find out, because we need your 3 room-nights to be applied to us.

If the hotel does count AAA discounts in our room block, then that's great. Others can feel free to use that, as well. If they don't honor that in our block, and we come up short on rooms, then Fest is going to have a big problem.
