Quick update on the hotel's room block: our cutoff date (last day to book) is December 17th. There are currently 9 rooms in our block and I believe 3 are spoken for. Please make your hotel arrangements soon so that I can add rooms if necessary. The longer we wait, the less availability there will be.

Also, we're sharing the hotel with the hockey kids again this year. We're on the private floor, but I anticipate the hotel selling out sometime in December.

For now, please post your interest in this thread and provide feedback on some activities that you'd like to see at the final Winterfest.
It's just about mid-December and still no survey in sight. You already know I'm interested in the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant - Model T museum in factory building where they were assembled.

Hear anything from anyone else on what they would like to do Saturday after lunch?

I think the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant is the way we should go this year. I'll update the first post and get to work on a survey.

Got a question for everyone who plans to do the Sunday breakfast at the Bomber. Would 9am work for you people? Asking as I am an early riser but waiting around a few hours until 10am is too long. Waiting until 9am is doable for me though.

Ran this past Lawson first - he said the Bomber would be less crowded at 9am on Sunday and I could toss this out there to see what you people think of the earlier time.

Last year most everyone went to their rooms about 10:00-10:30pm on Saturday so it seemed like staying up past midnight wasn't the thing to do. I would've stayed for breakfast on Sunday last time if it were at 9am, not 10am. Please chime in with what time works best for you in case 9am is good for the majority.

I'm going to try to make it this year--been a couple of years!
Is there a group buy on the tickets?
Saturday Bomber for me. Not on Sunday, though.

Last year everyone was responsible for purchasing their own ticket which should be the case again this time.

Hoping you can come as you weren't able to make Kirk's GTG in October. Be good to see you again! - Robert

Thought there would be more activity by now in this thread as we have less than three weeks to go. Other than Stinkyfingers nobody has commented on possibility doing a 9am Sunday breakfast for those of us staying Saturday night. Not a problem for me as I either hit the road early or stick around if we do a 9am Sunday breakfast...

Also see we still have no survey up. Know Lawson is too busy driving the new Tesla and seeking out charging spots these days. And yes, I know he is at the HO5G GTG tomorrow (1-1-19) so he's still depleting electrons at a rapid rate!

Just having a little fun with you Lawson! We are all busy with life. Hopefully when you return home we'll get this thread cranked back up...

Happy New Year everyone!
