A good chunk of Great Lakes THATCamp attendees will be coming from outside the greater Lansing area. Many will be flying in to Detroit Metro Airport or driving in from other exotic locales (like the jewel of southern Ontario – London). The result is that there will be lots of people who either need a ride or can provide a ride. So, if you can provide a ride, drop a comment as to where you are coming from, when you are going to be traveling, how many people you can accommodate, etc. If you need a ride, drop a comment as to your starting destination, when you are going to be traveling, etc, etc, etc.
Likewise, if you want to share a room with someone (thereby defraying the cost a little), drop a comment as to which hotel, etc, etc, etc. Remember, the Kellog Hotel only has a limited number of rooms available at the discounted price, and our room block reservation is only guaranteed until February 26th. The 89$/night room rate is good until March 19th – there is just no guarantee that there will be any rooms left in the block. So, if you want to make absolutely sure you get this rate, you need to book ASAP. Also, remember that the Kellog Hotel does not accept online bookings, you’ll need to call them directly and book your stay (800.875.5090). In order to get the conference rate, be sure to say that you are attending Great Lakes THATCamp.
