Default Important Notice About Milwaukee

I received a most unwelcome phone call this afternoon from my meet hotel for next year's International. I'll leave out all the details, but it boils down to the hotel is closing its doors. I was told that those of you who have already made reservations will be receiving phone calls about this.

Rest assured, the Milwaukee meet WILL go on! This is just a setback, not a death sentence. Besides, the rest of the meet is already organized and contracted for! I will be going to Milwaukee right away this weekend and scouting out other possible locations. Naturally, I will notify you all as soon as new accomodations have been secured.

Patrick,
Thank you for the post. I hope all works out on your trip to
scout a new location.
I will get my reservations in as soon as the new venue is
posted.
Again, good luck on your quest for new digs for us.
Mike

Patrick there are lots of hotels with in about 5 miles of there. I dont think you will have a real hard time finding another to be the second choice. Dont sweat it much.

Actually, Rocky, I had a half-hour phone conversation with the hotel's convention representative when she called, and what you just said was my first thought too. She says that's not the case. She said the new owners are taking over December 22nd, that all the employees have been given their 60-day notices, and that the new owners have contracted for taking over a practically abandoned property. She said the new owners are not responding to requests for information, and said her instinct is that they are planning on knocking it down and really just wanted the land.

Patrick, I'm really sorry to hear that. Good luck getting a new venue, I'm sure some lucky hotel will be glad to have us.
(And not to be a pain, but can you check and see if our 4-legged family members are welcome too, please? That'll benefit you, too!)

Not being a pain at all, Steve. I'm already ahead of you on having that thought.

Rocky says we can all camp on his very large well kept property if there is no hotel options by the time the meet happens.

Just make sure you bring your own pillows and sheets for camping in the back of your hearses or ambulances.

Those with ambulances will be much more comfy as you have a cot and no rollers to dig into your back when sleeping. I know this from experience.

All kidding aside... THANKS FOR THE EXTRA EFFORT NOW REQUIRED TO MAKE SURE THIS MEET HAPPENS PATRICK ! I KNOW YOU WILL COME THROUGH ! YOU ARE A DEDICATED GUY.

With the other big car show in town I'm sure there are not a lot of hotel spaces left and it will be a challenge to make it happen.

All the best and call on other members to help if required Patrick.
Don't feel you need to do it all on your own !!!
We are here for you too.

Darren



P.S. This is for the people who made the extra work for you !



WE WILL ALL BE IN WI FOR YOUR MEET PATRICK !!!!!
