What? Minnesota is supposed to have cooler temps than Hotlanta? Absurd post.

Finalizing my tickets right now and I will also book the Townplace by Marriot link that HG posted, unless others are looking at somewhere else they prefer. I'm trying to stay in the same hotel as others so that I may have my *** taxied around!

What Hotel are people getting rooms at? Me and Delta68 have not booked any rooms yet... figured we would try and stick with as many others as we could. maybe Axis Vs Allies luggage cart races down the halls at 2am?

You know if we tried that someone would just show up in a panhard and ruin it for everyone :P

updated list (from this thread)

Cosian

HG

Kilemall

Wolfie69

Kbar

Should be a great time at Buffalo Wild Wings.

I know of at least a couple people are bringing some bling to hand out, and for you smokers out there, this may be one of the few bars left in texas with an upstairs smoking area ( I will have some traditional Mini Con cigars :D)

Also if some are staying Saturday (for cheap flight purposes)

we may do a field trip to the Cavanaugh Flight Museum in Addison

They have quite a bit of the WWII hardware we use in this game including:

40mm Bofors

Sherman (Well its now a Super Sherman 50, Israeli Modified, but close enough)

P-40 Warhawk ( French H-81)

Me 109

Spitfire Mk VIII

P47 Thunderbolt ( Oh sorry... thats my wish list )

He-111

C-47

A pretty fun day trip if we get enough interest...

We went ahead and got a car since it sounds like we'll be doing some driving to the links, the bar and maybe even the ER if we play our cards right.

Didn't really look into group rate... didnt think we would have enough rooms ... some are staying at Homewood (smokers), some are staying at the Marriott Suites...

If anyone is interested in golf Friday morning, Wolfie69 and I have a tee time on Friday morning at Texas Star, one of the best public golf courses in texas... Let me know if you are interested.

I bet the golf course has golf club rental if you don't want to hassle with FedEx.

Thinking about having KBAR switch our reservations to the smoker rooms/
