    Default 2011 Convention DATE CHANGE to September 24th

    Due to hurricane Irene and possible hardships to presenters and attendees, we have decided to move the Convention date to September 24th. All tickets will remain good for the new date, but you may contact us for cancellation if necessary. The rental Hall people have graciously allowed us to change to this new date (the only one they had open).

    The boat trip on Jordan lake will depart at 2pm Friday September 23rd from Crosswinds Marina.

    We are also working on plans for a Friday social dinner and drinks for 6:30pm at Danny's Barbecue, walking distance from the Hampton Inn. We will confirm the details for all events at the date approaches.

    We hope that many more of you can make plans to attend on the new date.
    Thanks,

    Denny Cole

    Sounds good to me.. It will give me time to get more stuff together to bring and hopefully have time to go through another shed. Hopefully I can get Friday off this time and make it for the boat ride.

    This was a tough decision. The likelihood of Irene causing damage to Raleigh is minimal, however, it seemed the logical thing to do. Thank you to all the people that had a vote in making this decision.

    The reservation that I have at the Hampton Inn says that it is non-refundable and may not be changed or cancelled. So I guess I will have to eat it unless you Raleigh area guys have some pull at the Hampton Inn in Cary.

    Did you do that $75 reservation? If so, yep you can't get it back. Then again it might be nice and comfy place to ride out the hurricane.

    I called Hampton Inn and talked to them and it looks like I will just be out the $81.22 for friday nights reservation. He said that he would talk to his manager and maybe he would be able to change it to Sept. 23 due to the hurricane

    We have no control over the hurricane. If we put on the event then it might have meant harm to people. Maybe William would like to help offset the cost.

    Oh wow....Glad I bounced in... I was going to be able to make it this weekend since the hurricane blew my football game up to tonight. Good thing I looked before I headed to Raleigh....

    I won't be able to make the new date. I have a game on Friday night and a Jazz festival on Saturday.

    Bummer, I thought about you this week. I thought you might try to attend. If your plans change then come on and bring some blowmolds to sell too.

    Hey Larry, I called the hotel and spoke to Scott. He said that their local policy is to refund in full by 6pm the day of. I'm going to email you with my phone number and tell you what he said for you to do. If I can help further let me know.
