ACA convention

Post by Ken Grimmett » Tue Apr 03, 2012 8:59 pm

I wanted to see what the room rates were for the convention, but, I could not get them to come up with out (I think) putting down a credit card first.
Its at the Whynham resort so it may be pricey....Does anyone know?

I just regristered with their rewards program and I am thinking about switching hotel's untill I can get a few free nights. Once again I will have to see what the deal is..

The Rusty Wessel Field trip looks like it could be fun.....But it would mean 3 nights..and a long drive 5/6 hours?

convoy anyone....

I couldn't get the room rates to come up using some computers, and could on others. The rate's about $100/night plus tax, a little lower than some recent ACAs. I made my reservations from the library!

I found the Days Inn that is right down the road for under $60 a night. As much as I wanted to stay at the main hotel this allows me to stay longer. I am not planning on selling fish and really will only be sleeping there so I figured why not save the money on a room and spend it on fish. haha

I have to think about it, in other words I don't want to spend the $ this week.
I have a few options that would allow me to stay for free close to the hotel. I just saw that I'm two nights away from renewing my platimun level again at Holliday Inns. I maybe able to get a free night with Wydnham program by switching my hotel prefference. I mapped it out from my house to the aca hotel is 345 miles, or 5 solid hours driving. Take in a few 10 minute delays and 1/2 hour stop - you have a 6 hour drive. So if I do this - I would leave Thursday evening. Us my points and grab a hotel by the state line for the night and then arrive at the hotel around 10 am Friday. I don't like spending fish $ on rooms - But I may have something to sell so that could lessen the cost.

Any body planning on leaving Thursday - I will have One son with me, and maybe my wife...

I just spoke to Joe Fleckenstein via email on 4-23-12 (he's with the Circle City Aquarium Club) There are approximately 60 seats left for the tour to Rusty Wessel's place.

After all the work last year, I said I would never go again. That lasted until the January.
I am signed up and ready to go.
