    do you think the hotel would extend the block into friday night? me and a few people were thinking about heading down there early for some testing and not have to worry about traffic on sat morning.

    It can't hurt to call the hotel and ask about extending the rate to Friday night, rather than waiting for 'oh-fish-shul' info. Worst case is they say NO, then the block fills up. First come, first sleep!

    I called the hotel and asked about the block. The lady on the phone asked me "What's Pokemon?"

    This was just finalized Friday, so my guess is that sales staff and front desk staff haven't communicated info yet. I have followed up with sales and asked them to verify that phone staff knows about us. I have also requested an extension of the rate to Friday. We'll see...
  6. I was able to use the rate this morning. But it took a few minutes for the reservation specialist to find the group...

    is this going to be the only Regionals in the "northeast"?
    I'm from PA and this is the closest thing announced. I want to know so I could decide if I need to book a hotel

    Sweetness. I think I'll be able to attend!

    I don't have any exams the next week, so I should be good.

    Now, I need to find a deck...

    We have the Northeast Regional from Amtrak, but you're going to disembark in Richmond and have to go out of your way again to go north where the event is. Carpool, I suppose.

    Just an FYI I just booked a room for Friday and Saturday night at the Best Western so there should still be some available. Also, when I called I choose the option to speak to someone about group sales. When I inquired about the event and booking a room, the gentleman that took the call could not have been more courteous and helpful. Also note that the rate of $50.16 per night is available for Friday and Saturday night as stated before and that this includes tax.

    Can't wait for this event! It is going to be lots of fun!
