Gun Blogger Rendezvous Update
We are starting out with a block of 25 double occupancy rooms, but lots more are available, and we can expand that number if needed.
I have received the contract from the Circus Circus, and want to re-read it once more before signing it and sending it back, in case I can think of any questions that I should ask first. I have to pony up $500 out of my own pocket as a deposit, but once we get enough signed up for the dinner they will refund my deposit. (WHEW!)
Our dining room, hospitality room and accommodations are all in the same wing of the hotel, and there is a bar also in that wing, one floor down from our hospitality room. We can bring our own refreshments and munchies for the hospitality room.
We have reserved enough tables for the sit-down dinner on Saturday night for 150 people. That's probably more than we need, but we can reduce that without penalty as long as we do it over sixty days in advance.
KeeWee and I are planning on getting there a day early (Thursday) to make sure everything is under control and "Murphy" is locked in a closet so we don't have to deal with him!
Rivrdog is planning on driving a 12 passenger van from Portland, Oregon to Reno and back, if there are enough people interested in joining in and splitting the expenses. You can contact him directly at his blog for more info, and I'll be posting more on it too.
If you are planning on driving to the Gun Blogger Rendezvous, and would be willing to pick up a few other folks along the way to share the cost, leave info in a comment to this post, and I'll do a full post to see if we can match up drivers and riders.
That's it for now, but stay tuned!!
