Sounds Great to us. downside right now is weekends are two to four times the weekday rate shown on 'net and we know not everyone is lucky enough to be retired. Maybe a 'group' rate??

If you have another idea toss it out there! I know it is more costly on weekends but this is just the start of the conversation!

Count me in I'm there! Jim and I have stayed just outside of Altanic City in Egg Harbor rates are better on the weekend only about 10-15 minutes away can't remember the main strip there but a number of well know hotels on it, i.e. hampton inns and some had shuttle service to the Casinos, just an idea if Casinos costs are too high. Keep us posted! Thanks for coordinating this and by the way make sure your boss knows your not available to work! LOL Colleen

Hey Colleen (Rottiesmom) would you consider doing a little price comparison searching on this thing for me? I am thinking we might be able to do this for February 18-20 because Monday is a holiday for some of us. What do you guys think. I will send out an email to everyone letting them know what we are up to here! Everyone is welcome! Please post if you have any other ideas!

11-19-2011, 09:10 PM
Keep us 'looped' too, Deb. Winter gets REALLY long in the REAL Upstate NY --

11-19-2011, 09:38 PM
Hey Deb,

I'll look into it over the next week or two and get back to you not a problem.

11-20-2011, 07:08 AM
Thanks Colleen! You can be our "Wagonmaster" for this weekend!

11-20-2011, 09:57 AM
Hey everyone check out the changes and additions to post #1. This is an excellant opportunity! Let's do this!

11-20-2011, 08:57 PM
i'll be interested if I can get off of work, nice way to breakup the winter.

11-20-2011, 10:21 PM
Gee thanks no pressure here huh? LoL I sent you an email a little while ago on some progress but still looking into more details

01-13-2012, 09:51 AM
I owe a special thanks to Colleen for getting all the Hotel stuff done! All the information has been posted to the first post of this thread.

Emails have been sent to all those in the loop!

Hi Deb, You can put Judy and I in the loop, Just made our reservations for 2 nights . Friday & Saturday and we would like to attend the RV Show.

PS: Do we need to bring RED SOLO CUPS ????

01-13-2012, 12:28 PM
Red solo cups and Mama would be good! Glad you guys are coming and I will add you to the Show deal.

01-13-2012, 06:55 PM
Hey Deb we made our reservation tonight will be staying fri&sat nights and we will be going to the show. Any questions let me know. The hotel said they would e-mail Colleen on our confimation.

01-13-2012, 11:54 PM
Hey Deb, Were all set I made our reservations tonight we'll be staying Fri & Sat plus we would like to attend the RV Show too.

I will be calling this morning. What we need to decide next is where for dinner on Friday? There is many places by the hotel outside the city or we can go to the Casinos. The buffet at Wild West is good but expensive or we can hit a mainland restaurant. We're not far from Outback or Golden Corral if you want to go that route. There is a lot in the area so let me know what you all think so we can start to plan.

01-14-2012, 09:41 AM
I still have to decide what time Jim and I will arrive if I can't leave work early we may not be there until 7:00 or 8:00 pm because we are about 4 hours away. Outback or Golden Corral works for us I spoke with my rep at the hotel and he recommended the following restaurants: there are of course the restaurants in the casino's - most have buffet style, tropicana has an italian and also chinese. Not far from the hotel is another italian restaurant JoJo which he states is very good if anyone is interested in Italian. Besides outback and Golden Corral there is Carrabera, Ruth Crisps which is a steak house, Applebees and much more. I will do some research of other restaurants in the area but I agree with Debbie the sooner we know what we want to do for the weekend as far as dinners the better so we can contact the restaurants prior to the 17th to ensure they can handle a large group on a busy weekend with that said, I feel a decision needs to be made by 1/25 on any that we are interested in, for Friday and Saturday so arraingments can be made. If anyone wants to do their own thing for dinners that good too just let us know. Just a reminder the hotel will provide free Hot Breakfast every morning and shuttle service to Tropicana Casino schedule available on check in and it is also close to the convention center if anyone is going to the show. I also confirmed that the Hicks and Schaaf are booked with the group rate for there rooms. Who's got it better than us, good food, casinos, RV show and spending time with good friends - PRICELESS!

01-18-2012, 04:41 PM
Just a reminder.....

Our rooms will be returned to the Comfort Inn on the 25th so you have about a week left to register for this winter getaway! See post #1 for all the information on how to register.
