The final countdown to Trek Fest is on!
According to the POLL
we did, we've got eight people who said they'd attend Trek Fest. I made it clear that voting in the poll was NOT considered a "promise" to be there, but just an indication of interest and likelihood of going, so if you can't make it, that's fine. Would the following people please confirm that they are planning to come, or say that they are unable to attend?hawkelf

The current plan is:
- I'll reserve 2 hotel rooms at the Riverside Hotel and Casino. We'll divide evenly between the rooms. Costs will be divided up, too. Unfortunately, I fail at making early reservations, and they don't currently have any non-smoking rooms with two queen beds. I have reserved the following:
- Two nonsmoking rooms with king beds.
- One smoking room with two queen beds.
The cost of the rooms is $169/night.
Alternately, we can make reservations at one of the nearby towns in a less expensive hotel.
- We'll leave Kansas City, from my house, in the morning on Friday, June 24th. I think we should leave no later than 9:00 AM. That way, we can get to Riverside, get settled in the hotel, freshen up, and get into costumes (if desired) before going into town for the evening activities. (Last year, we left after 11:00 AM, and the events were already starting by the time we arrived.) I volunteer my car for one of the vehicles, and can hold four comfortably, five if we squish. Basically, we'll need one more person to volunteer to drive. Gas shouldn't be too bad if we split the cost amongst all the passengers.
- We'll leave Riverside on Sunday after check-out time at the hotel, and should be back in Kansas City by late afternoon or early evening.
So, if these plans DON'T work for anyone who would like to come, please speak up and we can modify the plan. If you're one of the people who said you'd come in the poll, please either CONFIRM or RESCIND
your RSVP in a comment below. If you hadn't planned to come, but would like to come now, please let me know as soon as possible.
