This is an update to my previous message of January 22. We have filled a
number of our rooms, but we have now had a few health related and/or date
If you are interested in a room, NOW is the time to act. The chances
are BETTER for a room with one KING or QUEEN sized bed. If you need 2
beds, I can put you our STANDBY LIST -- whether we will have any 2 bed rooms
available is unknown at this time.
Please read the rest of this message ... you will need to provide
arrival/departure dates ... be prepared to make a deposit for the first night ...
and commit to THREE nights at the hotel.
As you probably know, Tim - K3LR has made special arrangements with The
Crowne Plaza in Dayton for Hamvention 2012. A special telephone
reservation period filled virtually all rooms that were available.
I assist W8ZET in managing the only Crowne Plaza block of rooms that are
NOT part of Tim's arrangement with the hotel. These rooms all provide
for "Club Floor privileges", and carry on a tradition of many years.
What started as a core group of 12 friends or so has expanded over the years.
Due to the fact that some our regulars are not able to attend Dayton this
year, we will have some vacancies. We are not sure of the EXACT number,
but we are now putting together a STANDBY LIST for what we have.
If you are interested in a room at The Crowne Plaza, you should be aware
of these requirements:
1. You must commit to a stay of 3 nights at the hotel. This is a hard
and fast rule.
2. A deposit for the first night, including tax, of $175,15, will have
to be made to Janeen Hire - W8ZET.
3. We need to know your day of arrival and your day of departure.
4. Do you need a room with 2 beds or 1 bed? If you want 2 beds, but
only a one bed room is available, will you accept that?
5. Be prepared to respond to emails we send you, regarding room
availability, and/or sending the deposit. Janeen has deadlines with the hotel for
payment and cancellations.
6. You should be prepared to have a good time!
This is a "first come, first served", deal. If you know you're coming
to Dayton, and want to be in and around the center of nighttime activity,
we may be able to provide a spot for you.
