It's time to start planning for your lodging for the 2009 R1/R6 Convention. So that we may keep all lodging posts, questions and issues in one location, let's use this thread for all lodging related conversations. I would like to keep this thread clear of general chit chat and off-topic conversations. I will maintain this post with up to date information on who is looking for roommates and who has space. The official lodging location for the convention will be Fontana Village.​

The lodge rooms are GREAT if you want a quiet night sleep and solitude. However, a lot of what happens at the Convention is at Shuckstack Road. That's where we eat, and then party the night away under the light of tiki torches. That is the time that is in most pictures and stories.

Honestly, the best bet is to match up with people and take the cabins that are close to Shuckstack Road.

Missing out on....

1) the ability to stagger back to a bed after the Mix Masta get's a hold of you. (you will meet him at the convention. He doesn't post here often if at all) ;)

2) Rooming with new friendly faces. I enjoyed hanging out with my roommates last year. None of us knew each other at all. I walked away with knew friends that I will continue to keep in touch with.

If you get a cabin, get one as CLOSE to Shuckstack as possible. The walk from shuckstack is downhill, makes it nice after a long night.

There certainly are no disadvantages to the lodge though. The cabins are more like small houses. And of course the lodge is like . . .well a lodge/hotel.

If you get a cabin and rommies, you will actually get by cheaper.

I know nothing about said event.

Me walking you back or helping walk Paytheon back was nothing compared to what was done for me Sunday night.

Haven't heard from anyone about sharing a room/cabin.
Got you on the list. It will pick up in a few weeks. This early we don't have a lot of people reserving cabins etc, but it will pick up shortly. Keep in contact with kynetguy since he is keeping tabs on this. If you need help beyond that please PM DanQ or GPD270.

Sorry about that Tap. I am the only person that has any available space posted at this time. If you want commitment now, just to know you are set, you are more than welcome to take a spot in my cabin. I have no one committed at this time other than myself.

Like Dan said though, it will start to get crazy later. By Feb there will be lots of people looking for space and roommates.

Thanks Dan, I slacked on this. I will copy this over to the R6 forum.
