    DO we call the Hilton Garden Inn directly or just book thru the website? To verify, they will shuttle us to the event and airport??

    You should call the Hilton directly. We are going to have a van to pick arrivals up from the airport on Thursday. If you arrive later we will post a cell number on the website that you can call and we will get you picked up at he airport. The Hilton will shuttle to the Grand Harbor for the events.

    You should call the Hilton directly. We are going to have a van to pick arrivals up from the airport on Thursday. If you arrive later we will post a cell number (855 We Fly Beech ext 3 ) on the website that you can call and we will get you picked up at the airport. The Hilton will shuttle to the Grand Harbor for the events.

    We are still getting more reservations and registrations. This has the potential to be the biggest ever. 36 planes and counting so far . Don't delay on registering and getting a room while we can figure out a way to keep your costs down. The Dubuque team has really done there homework and organized a amazing event . All they ask is you register and reserve a room so they can better plan. If you are in range of this ,I would strongly recommend you attend. You will most likely be kicking yourself if you have the ability to participate in some function and do not. If you reserved a room and haven't registered please email to be added jp@getxray.com Thanks JP

    Note. I cut and paste the above threads to put it all together.

    Jim and Denis and John and other very capable volunteers,

    Thanks for the great job in management and scheduling. Getting excited ....

    My plans and info:
    - arrival Wednesday afternoon with a full day's flight. Alternate travel day is Tuesday if the weather points me in that direction. I don't want to miss this!
    - hoping for a CFI ride on Thursday for bi-annual. Also prop balancing. Schedules?
    - plan to bike ride around town (folding bike - photo). Area bike paths look pretty good. Any others?
    - my cell phone 210-834-1991 if anyone wishes to call at DBQ or prior

    Be safe,
    Nelson Amen

    Unofficial hotel update:

    I just talked to Grand Harbor-DBQ and they still have rooms. As Brother Bill S pointed out, it is just the BAC rate rooms that are sold out. There are still some reasonable room rates. The Hilton Garden also still has rooms.

    Thanks to all the Coordinators/Volunteers/Behind-the-scenes unpraised folks that are making this event another great one! I can't wait.

    Hold my beer, watch this!

    Is camping on the field at DBQ an option, and if so, is anyone wishing or planning to camp?

    Tom, Since the field is class D with commercial service I don't think camping on the field would be an option. I am flying to DBQ on Sunday to do some planning with the BAC team, I will ask the locals what camping options could be available.
