I won't be going, but 2009 in Columbus is doable. I have 14 months to save up. Already doing some searches for best routes and hotels for 2009. Anyone have an idea where it is going to be held?

Have fun in Virginia Beach everyone.

Wayne

Wayne,

Sorry - just got on the site, but I'm registration chairman for Columbus. The venue is the Greater Columbus Convention Center, hotel is the

Hyatt Regency at 350 N High Street. Our web site will be up August 10th (after I get back from Va Beach) at www.ipmsusa2009.org. Nothing

there yet, though. We look forward to seeing you in 09 in Columbus.

I'm out.

Canceled my hotel reservation today. Just can't afford a $800+ hotel bill on top of everything else right now. Might stop by on Saturday to see what hasn't been picked over at the vendors.

Thanks Scott for the info. I will now be having paid vacations so I am pretty sure I can get the time off now. Now my theme song for the next year will be Money, I need, Money. :worship:

If you are going to get a hotel 3-10 miles from the convention hotel be sure to rent a car as well, unless you are already driving. When you combine it with parking and gas you just might make up the difference. Wait until after VA Beach when we start 'selling' 09 to make a decision though.

I wish the AF Museum still did the evening "open cockpit" events for special groups. I got in on a couple of those back in the early '90s.

Unfortunately, that is "off the table" these days... too many idiots tried to take parts, break things, etc.

I'm mostly a lurker out here, but I managed last-minute approval from my better half to go down to Nats for a couple days.

It sounds like there are a number of hospitality suites and events other than those listed on the IPMS site. Is there a consolidated list anywhere of times and locations (and if there are any restrictions on attending)?

Many thanks!

I'm attending, Don, as previously discussed.

Arriving sometime Wednesday morning, leaving Sunday morning. Staying at the Doubletree with my newly-acquired roommates from Modeler's Warehouse (Warpigs). Should be an outstanding event, I'm really looking forward to it.

14 days!!!!!!!

Hey Don,

You KNOW I'll be there- driving in direct from NW Jersey, loaded on Moutain Dew and hyped from the 7 1/2 hour drive! I'll dump my bags at the hotel and head straight onto the convention floor. I'll be the one with the nervous twitch and a slight drooling issue.
