Simple answer: Both.

Oldtimers will learn a trick or 2. Someones throw-away statement may be my :eek: :o moment.

Newbies may be overwhelmed with the treasure trove of ideas they're about to experience. ;)

I'm confirmed, no hotel. It’s the day before BikeNY so I'll be in the area already...

Note to others, somewhere around page five there is the following post which has instructions for registering and paying via cc or paypal - for some reason they have not added it to the first page where all the official information is: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/15918846-post49.html

NYC101 Mar 4, 11 9:50 am

Tried register, but guestlist kept giving me an error message, contacted support and will see what happens.

On a another note, Flushing NY, where the hotel is located is absolute heaven when it comes to regional Chinese and Korean dinning, incredibly delicious and ridiculously cheap. I suggest those who ain't flying out that evening and haven't had enough of the FT stuff yet to consider having dinner there (and continue bonding by discuss more FT stuff of course). I know I'll be up for it for sure.

An old NYT article here about food in Flushing, it has only gotten better since then: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/30/di...0flushing.html

I don't need a hotel, but if you guys need/want us to stay to fill up a block or for good relations, could stay a night.

Supposedly the guestlist glitch has been fixed.

Any answer to this yet? I don't want to lose my spot...

Thanks NYC101, Count me in if any of the FTUers are going out! Looks like they are close enough to be walkable. I'm registered and will be around several days as I'm planning on doing some sightseeing in NYC.

LIH Prem Mar 7, 11 7:56 pm

I registered, and I need a hotel for the FT awards and this event, I guess.

Where did the site pick up my icon from? gravatar? (the pdf tix show my LH duck icon)

update: they do pull from gravatar, I saw it in guestlistapp's blog entry about pdf tix.

I still don't see an upgraded program - can you please let me know what time things will be wrapping up on Saturday so I can decide before it sells out?

Thanks Tommy. Booked.

Is it an "eligible" rate? (we'll get stay credit and points?).

Yes, it earns credits and points (do you think I would negotiate a rate for this group that doesn't?? ;))

I received an email for the Saturday program but should I have received tickets or the like for the Friday night event?

dohvegas Mar 9, 11 12:07 pm

Just registered and awaiting hotel info. What time do things kick off on Friday?
