Chicago Seminars Dinner - Saturday, October 21, 2017

Once again, I'll be organizing this year's Chicago Seminars FlyerTalk Dinner. We'll be dining at the same location as the previous two years (which has provided us with some fantastic service, food, and separate checks!).

If you're interested in joining - please reply to this thread and I'll add you to the guest list. As we're currently limited to only 50 seats, please only reply if you're definitely committing to attend. In the past couple years there have been a handful of cancellations at the last hour - please refrain from doing this; just because people might be waitlisted doesn't mean I can get in touch with them at the very last minute if you cancel. Also, in your response, please indicate if you need a ride or whether you'd be willing to provide a ride. (we will also utilize the hotel shuttle for a handful of attendees).

Cheers,
FlyerBeek

-----------------------------------------------------------

RSVP/Waitlist for Chicago Seminars Dinner DO

Transportation Details:
Similar to last year, we'll look to use the hotel shuttle but we'll still need additional vehicles to accommodate everyone.

I will post/send ride assignments on Friday, October 20th - at which point please get connected with each other on your own during the Chicago Seminars.

When signing up, please indicate if you do or don't need a ride or whether you'd be willing to provide a ride. This allows me to figure out the rides prior to the event. Thanks!

Mark me as very likely, I plan to attend, just waiting till next week to finalize time off.

Will have a car and room for 3 or a very uncomfortable 4.
