Howie, appreciate all your efforts. However, the hotel link isn't working for me in three different browsers and with cleared cache. Just goes to the Elk Grove HI landing page. Thanks

The link does go to the Elk Grove HI landing page. Just put in the dates and make sure the group code C19 is in there. The rate should be $115/night.

Caesars Rewards match for a stay at Bellagio? Do you mean matching Caesars Rewards to M life Rewards Gold or Platinum for a stay at Bellagio?

The link worked for me on my laptop. I just made our hotel reservations. This is our first Chicago Seminar and we're looking forward to meeting everyone and learning a lot of additional information.

I'm getting a "code not available at this hotel" error, probably because it's sold out.

It does look like the host hotel is sold out. There are some rooms held back and a few people do typically end up canceling last minute. The rooms I'm holding likely won't be released until a week or two before the event. I won't announce it, but the best way to check is to periodically look online -- the inventory there is the same as they'll see locally at the property.

I have attended in the past and there used to be a dinner on Saturday night. In the past it was at Jimmy's CHop House. Is there anything planned for this year?
