Hey, if the bus is leaving from a hotel by the airport, does this mean if we arenít staying at the hotel weíre going to have to eat like a $20/day parking fee? Should we plan to carpool before we even get to the bus here?

Interesting question. . . Is it a success or a failure (or both, or neither) that the two major events of the weekend (Grand Tasting, Woodshop) are all but sold out with more than 6 weeks to go before the action?

Hey Woodshop, you seem familiar. Were you at Woodshop 3 or 4?

I honestly hadnt thought of that. Here is what I see on their site

Is anyone going from the San Diego area to the hotel by LAX on the Thursday (19th) by car? Me and Jens (CitizenMeow) are going to make that journey in some way and weíd really appreciate if someone could give us a lift. Weíll pay for our share of the gas, of course.


There should be at least a few, though theyíve been a bit slow in paying...

Also, the grand tasting is not actually sold out. As I mentioned before Iíve been flooded with requests for just grand tasting tickets (and nothing else) from accounts that have never posted, rated, or even uploaded an avatar, that were all suspiciously made right around the time that BA went down. Not trying to discriminate but I DO want to make sure that the Ratebeerians that actually want to be involved get a chance. Iím not opposed to letting some BAs in but the grand tasting by itself isnt really RBSG, itís just one event.

As expected Iím getting more interest in the Saturday bus so once that fills up if there are seats left on the Friday bus I may make grand tasting tickets available for anyone that just wants to be on the Friday bus. Iím also going through these requests one by one and will try to help those Ratebeerians that also dont really plan to do anything except the grand tasting.

To all those that have gotten confirmations from me PLEASE PAY ASAP. Iím going to have to start putting money down soon.

Anyone want to take over tshirt duty? The quotes Iíve gotten are in the $12-$15 range. Seems a bit high for a single tshirt, so if anyone has a connection or wants to take over be my guest.

Hereís a rough design, click rotate to see the other side

No interest in tshirts? Thatís cool. Iíll get around to it when I get some time.

To all those that I sent payment info to Iím giving you until next Friday (1 week from today) and then your seat will no longer be assured.

To everyone else there are still a good number of seats left on the Friday bus and a few on the Saturday bus. Will hold grand tasting tickets for those only on the Friday bus as well.

Itís really frustrating. If everyone that says theyíre going to pay actually pays then the buses are at least 3/4 full. Only counting those that have paid Iíve got 21 on the Friday bus and 30 on the Saturday bus.

Since there are enough people that only want on the Saturday bus I will definitely hold some grand tasting tickets for those on the Friday bus. First come first served here, Iím tired of holding seats. Send me a BM if you want on the bus and into the grand tasting.

**grand tasting tickets only for those on at least one of the buses.
