2318Re: BottosCon 2013 update
- 18 Sep, 2013Hi guys, spoke with the hotel today. A couple of important updates.
1. I have to pay for the convention space on October 8,2013. So, if you know you will be in attendance, please make sure to register prior to that date.
2. The hotel's sky train shuttle picks up from the King George Sky train station at 3:30pm, 4:30pm, 5:30pm, and 6:30pm. The shuttle leaves for the Sky train at 6:30am, 7:30am, 8:30am, and 9:30am.
If your party is arriving or departing outside those hours, I.e. Art's Amtrak group, I need to know the size of your group, and when you will arrive/depart so I can make special arrangements with the hotel.
3. Our hotel event coordinator would like to have our room layout requirements done no later than October 8. I will need to know your table requirements no later than October 5, 2013.
Round tables are in 4, 5, and 6 foot sizes.
Rectangular tables come in 18 inches by 6 feet or 30 inches by 6 feet. These are the only choices we have, so please go to the database and update your requirements. Do you require a tablecloth on your table?
4. The hotel has asked us how many people will be eating in the hotel restaurant on Friday and Saturday night so they can ensure they have sufficient staff on hand to see to our needs.
5. The hotel shows the following people registered as guests in the hotel: Rob Bottos, Terrence Gray, James Webb, Stephen Graham, Duncan Rice, Kevin Dietrick, Mike Owen, Art Brochet, Lester Marshall, Wilhelm Fitzpatrick, David Sullivan, Michel Boucher, Michael Resch.
If you have reserved a room, and your name is not on the above list, please contact me asap.

You are responsible for listing the prices you want, and for collecting said monies. The convention is merely providing you a space to display your wares.
