    It is 6:30 AM on Saturday. I called the 800 # and the gentleman does not show a block of rooms under "H-Talk" or "HVAC-Talk" at Baltimore. But being that it is early I got the world wide reservation center. Is there a confirmation # or contact person at the hotel?

    I will call Jack later. I'd call him now but it is like 3:30 in the morning in Colorado. He is probably up feeding the baby but I better wait anyway. .

    There is no good time of the year for everyone so we have to go with the best time for the region that the convention is being hosted in. May we have someone from the South host the 2006 convention?

    I have just received the contract for the group block and have not yet submitted it. Our contacts name is Jim Keenan, so if you are making a reservation now, mention his name and have "H-Talk Convention" put on the reservation somewhere so we can change it over to the group block.

    Please email me your real names if you are making reservations before the paperwork goes through. That way I can let Jim Keenan know whose reservations to trasfer.

    Looking over this group contract I do not like the way it is set up. This contract is requiring a guarantee of payment for 15 rooms at $189 per night.

    If you call the hotel direct you can get a regular rate of $199 per night on an individual basis. If you use a AAA membership you get 20% off which makes the room rate $159 per night, a savings of $80 for the weekend.

    Even if you don't have AAA, you can get it for less then $80 and still come out ahead.

    I have emailed Jim Keenan of my concerns but really think we are better off booking individual rooms at $199 plus AAA discount. Some of us may have other discounts available. Either way, the group rate with having to go through a contract seems to not be in our best interest.

    I still think this is the best hotel to stay at for its central location to everything.
