I can confirm now that we will have a couple of folks that you may know from their Boarding Area blogs who will give talks and moderate discussions on Saturday afternoon (July 21):

1. Frequent Miler on maximizing value with gift cards and other opportunities to leverage value with miles and points.

2. Delta Points about maximizing value with Delta.

I'm sure both of them will try to incorporate any suggestions you have as they work out the details of their talks, so feel free to post your ideas of what you would like to discuss.

You can go here to find both of their blogs:
http://boardingarea.com/

We'll also definitely have time to share tips / questions with each other and do the Best Vacation ever round robin and talk about our future dream vacations and how to make them a reality.

Will be at all the events Saturday, skipping brunch on Sunday, and willing to have everyone over for an afternoon on the lake after the Brunch on Sunday (I'm about 30 miles west of Ann Arbor, have a hooptie pontoon boat and a fun jetboat to enjoy the lake with....

I want to make an offer to the attendees.

There are 3 rooms available in the Detroit airport area that will cost you $28.50 for Saturday night. This offer is not on any public site, it is an offer from me.

Pool, hot tub, work out facility available.

PM me if you want one so we can work out the details.

Extra credit if you post why I am doing this.

Michael and veterans, let the newer members guess a little.

Oh, I know, I know. I think.

But I'll keep quiet.

Folks, Bikeguy's offer sounds like a win-win if you want a room near detroit airport. Beats my $40 Courtyard room upthread (although you can get that one with extra points or half a free night cert if you play it right.)

I'll be offline for most of the next two weeks so will touch base here as we get closer to the date. Please let me know your current status for the 2 meals and library event if you haven't done so lately, there is limited seating.

Sign me up for the Miles and points discussion and the cottage inn dinner. I can also drive some people back to their hotel after dinner if they're staying in ann arbor.

Nice, no more Pittsfield library. AA library is a nice touch.

Please add a +1 for me for the library discussions. I will still be at all events myself.
