here's the skinny on

utah palooza!!

october 6-9, 2011
thursday-sunday

you are welcome to come earlier or stay later. rooms are available from oct 5-9, 2011. some will be coming on wednesday.

hotel:

crystal inn midvalley (hotel website (http://www.crystalinnmidvalley.com/index.php))
room rate: $72 + tax/night (per room, not per person)
2 queen beds in each room, can add a roll away bed for $10/night
includes complimentary hot breakfast each morning and a light dinner from 5p-8p
free shuttle to and from airport (i will also be able to shuttle people)
5 minutes from palooza location
801.685.9300


more hotel info: 8473

you will be responsible for making your own personal reservations. these need to be made by september 1, 2011. only one person per room needs to make their reservation. roommate list will be updated when people decide who to room with. when you call to make your reservation, ask for the utah-palooza block. specify which date you are arriving (they are now for october 5th, but it's fine to change what day you are arriving or leaving)

so if you are staying for 4 nights with one roomie, it will be $144 + tax for the room for each person. cheap!

palooza site:

mary's clubhouse
5 minutes from hotel
large space with a full kitchen and restrooms
$200 for the weekend. we will need to clean ourselves (garbage each night, good cleaning on sunday) or there will be an additional $100 cleaning fee
will need a $20 deposit (per person) to angie by april 1, 2011


if we have more than 10 people coming, refund for the clubhouse deposit will be given at the end of the event.

definitely coming:

angie
mary
traci (deposit sent)
chelsea (deposit sent :) )
lesa (deposit sent)
joanie (deposit sent)
joanne (deposit sent)
mary h (deposit sent)
joan (deposit sent)
paula (deposit sent)


if you are confirming to come, reply in this thread (http://stamp-shack.com/forum/showthread.php?t=40629).

so total cost for hotel and clubhouse will be around $200 per person. this will vary depending on taxes and how many actually come. will only be cheaper than this! if you are not needing a hotel it will be $20 for the clubhouse.


how can you pass this up??

questions? ask away!

I am planning for it, but it will definately depend on what is going on with my masters program. I don't need a room, because I will be staying with family and friends.
I will let you know a definate answer soon. Can't wait!

Angie, since I would be flying in and a lot of my supplies wouldn't be able to make it with me in my carry-on, would you mind if I make up a small package of my scissors, cutter, craft knife, etc. and mailed it to your house just before our weekend? Then I would repackage it and ask if you would take it to the post office to mail back to me.

I am definitely interested in coming and would love to be on the committed list but I need a roommate. Would anyone be interested in rooming with me? Suzi, anyone else?

IF I make it (and it's a HUGE IF!!!) I'll be traveling w/my family. The kids don't want to go AT ALL but Scott would like to drive out & explore while I hang w/y'all. Of course, the whole thing is still very shaky at best!

No, I am assuming it is a building in her complex. A lot of apartment, condo, mobile home complexes have clubhouses for the residents to use for a fee of some kind.

Good point! I never thought of that. I was thinking another hotel or something and was thinking maybe staying there.

I am definitely coming!! Will the hotel guarantee non-smoking rooms? (very allergic!) Anyone want to room with me? Warning! I snore sometimes! :o) And Cheesecake Factory is my favorite place - the best salmon ever, not to mention cheesecake.

I guess I'd better get on the ball and answer some questions!! Our condo clubhouse is about, maybe 5 houses away from my house. It has recently been remodeled and has a lovely kitchen, bathrooms and lots and lots of space for all or our stuff. We can get in Wednesday afternoon to start setting up we have it reserved until Sunday. It will be locked and secured every night so we don't need to worry about our precious treasures and toys. The complex manager has his office at the club house, but he won't bother us and we certainly won't bother him. With the breakfast being served at the hotel, we will figure out lunches and dinners. The kitchen is full service with two ovens, a microwave, fridge, etc. Angie and I both have a ton of punches, trimmers, paper (cardstock, etc) so if you have a specific tool that you don't want to pack, let us know and if we have it, don't pack it. i am so excited that you all are coming (and wanting to come) to Utah. We are very excited to host and treat you all like you treat us when we come East. Questions? Bring them on--we'll get them answered. Mary

Yes, Cindi, Salt Lake City International Airport is about 15 minutes away from my house. The hotel Angie has made arragements with has a shuttle service to and from the airport and is very close to my house. That would be awesome if you guys could come.

It's about a 6 hour drive from Vegas.

Ok! I will put it in the mail when I get home. I have my airline tickets. My dh is coming-we will come in before the Shack Meet and do some touristy stuff and then come back to SLC Thurs but will have to leave for the airport early Sunday am so I won't get to stay until the last minute. He will hang out at the hotel while we stamp away.
He is a pretty good sport (most of the time and don't tell him I said so)
