    Sounds good. Where are we with the plans ???? People flying in have to start shopping for tickets.

    OK guys, we kinda need to get this going. If any help is needed, past hosts are all willing to jump in. That might land us somewhere we might not want to be, but we'll git-er-done

    I've sort of got the same situation, except my family is a few hours away. So far, my plans are to leave Wed., spend a night in Vicksburg, the casinos have 39.00 rooms on weekdays. Then either drive to B'ham and stay another night at moms or just drive on to Atlanta.

    I'll PM GA and see if he has a place reserved for Saturday get together. He was talking about the VFW in Duluth I think. Found this hotel has a special for $67 a night and it's close to the VFW or Legion hall. http://hamptoninn.hilton.com/en/hp/h...tyhocn=ATLDMHX

    Gets great reviews on trip advisor

    Now that sounds like a plan is coming together. Good luck getting through to GA tech. I think he has a filter on Yankee PMs.

    Well, I hear Viagra can help with that problem. What about those of us who are working "too" hard?

    So, let's get a definite on an official hotel.

    I'm not sure about the FOAA or whatever the free advice thingy is , but when a convention plan comes together, somebody e-mail me!

    Update...

    First: Ace was/is right (might want to mark your calendar... ) GA has been unusually busy.

    Second: We had a medical issue with Dad... not to be concerned; he is well and healthy.

    Update: I am waiting for one more quote from a hotel... should have it tomorrow (Friday). If this one looks as it sounds... I think I have all I need to post a plan! (YEAH!!!)

    Here are a few details for the 2011 H-talk convention in Atlanta (The GREATEST H-talk Convention yet... ) folks can plan on:

    Date: The convention will be Saturday September 17th in a suburb of Atlanta.
    Travel: For those who fly in; Hartsfield-Jackson airport is a HUGE place with lots of airlines serving the area. Airtran is probably one of the best deals if one wants to fly non-stop. A few years ago I was doing a lot of traveling and found one can fly connecting on US Air through Charlotte. Generally one adds about 2 hrs to each way... however the prices were a considerable savings then (the summer of 2009). Best to check fairs at many different travel sites (Orbitz, Travelocity, etc).

    Planned activities: So far, I have planned the following activities:
    *Thursday evening: Dinner at a local restaurant to chill and re-acquaint with folks we have not seen in a year. Location to be announced, based on RSVP's (how many the restaurant can handle).
    *Friday evening: For those that would like a taste of Southern flare: Lets go to Stone Mountain Park to see the Laser show (weather permitting). See the link below, and check the links to the right mid page:
    http://festivals.stonemountainpark.c...n/?id=5&pid=53
    *Saturday evening will be the Convention... catered with BBQ and the fixins. I really need a head count on this when we can... both for the food and refreshments.
    *For those that are Church going folk: You are welcome to join me at my Church Sunday morning at 11:00 AM.

    I hope to put together a few lists of places and sites to see, by category... such as:
    For the history buffs: Places to see with Civil War history; and places associated with 'Gone with the Wind'.
    For the ladies: A list of malls to shop at. Note those that will drive 30-40 miles each way... there are a couple of outlet malls with loads of stores.
    For the museum crowd: Lots of places to see.
    For the 'attraction crowd': Places like CNN center, Centennial park, World of Coke museum, the GA Aquarium (largest in the world).
    For the Sports crowd: We have the Atlanta Braves, and we have the Gwinnett Braves (farm team). The latter have their own stadium... tickets are easy to get (even at the last minute), and the games are good action. The stadium is about 20-30 min away from our area.

    If anyone of the locals have suggestions for the attractions lists... PLEASE post them. I can think of a bunch of stuff... however I am sure lots of minds can think of a LOT more stuff to do.

    THX guys/gals for your patience. Lets make this a time to remember.
    BTW: There is a real possibility of an 'event' folks will not want to miss... and will remember at the convention... What is is... You just gonna have to be here to see...

    Quality work at a fair price with excellent customer service!
