I do not recall having to donate - the fees that I paid were consistent with what I was told they would be.

Obviously not first but I am all in! Thanks guys for putting everything together for the DO. The registration was excellent, so easy.

The only things I need to add are flts and hotel. Will look at the flts now, then take care of the hotel when things work out for the rates Wed-Sun.

Special thanks for tying in the registration date to the new DL BounceBack promo which began Thur.... Double SM if you use the Delta AmEx card.

You might want to remind attendees about the special phone number to book flts. This helps everyone in the end.

It wouldn't be a US Bank FlexPerks Visa, would it?

I used my visa for both registrations.

We had a nice, sweltering visit to the Heritage Museum last year and, to be honest, it's nowhere on my list of charities to be support.
You know I'm beginning to detect a general overall tone to most of your posts in DL forum..... I'm slow but I catch on eventually.......

I'm registered, woo-hoo! ^
I want to do both RWT's if possible, I saw they're both listed on Saturday so, I wasn't sure how to convey that so, I registered for both.

I used my Delta Skymiles Amex for registration. Hoping we all earn double valuable additional SkyMiles for this FlyerTalk event?

I noticed the registration form didn't request a Delta SkyMiles Number.

I tried 0, and it told me the minimum was $5.00. I'll try it blank.

Yep...my airfare, from Upstate, NY (so relatively short flight) went up about $50...

Right now USAirways is the cheapest! I'm going to wait it out...AirTran periodically has flights to ATL on sale, and when they do Delta usually matches...

Sorry, but I draw a line when unexpected charges pop up like this.

I just started booking September travel last night, and I still have August to book as well... I'll probably book the flights as we get closer - I've tended to find that fares in the fall indeed fall (pardon my horrible pun) once we get into late summer.

Having trouble with the hotel registration- I follow the link, at first it shows the DL DO rate and proper dates, and then it says "Please note that the group rate you requested is unavailable. Available rates are displayed below. "
