Where have you been? . I've been hosting a PSP Do annually for the last 9 yrs - but the group may not be what you have in mind

The rate is 294 including VAT, 245 excluding for double occupancy. I have contacted hotel with the problem, but they cannot show the rate excluding VAT (don't know why not). I have a signed contract stating the rate, as well as written confirmation from the hotel. If you are unhappy booking when it says that, I suggest booking by email, so you get the rate confirmed in writing.

I have had confirmation that you can use either suite upgrade certificates or points to upgrade to a suite/club room (even though this is not the daily rate). IT will try to sort out the rate showing online.

I'd also like to state that the prize fund for the raffle is currently at a value of over 11000 (between 18 prizes), and the value of total sponsorship works out at 500/attendee (if 50 attend) or 600/attendee (if 40). Prizes will be limited to one per room - you will only get a ticket if you have paid me for the transfer to Virgin (if you went). We will be asking for donations to 2 funds for people who feel able to do this - 1 fund as a tip for house staff (especially as there is no service charge for dinner), 1 fund to go to St Martin-in-the-Field's charity for homeless people.

If anyone works for a company who may be interested in donating a prize for the raffle, or contribution to a goody bag, please PM me.

That is great news!

Clarification
1) Do you get a raffle ticket only if you are going for the Virgin experience?
2) Can we contribute different amounts for the 2 funds?

1) No - every room will get a raffle ticket, but if you use transport to Virgin, you will only get it after paying me (I can't be out of pocket for 500-750, although I may have a sponsor for this).

2) Originally I had planned to use contributions first for staff and any left over to charity. However, I think it would be nicer to have separate funds. We will probably put 2 enveloped on each table at dinner and people can then contribute in neither, one or both. It would be nice if people who win a prize feel able to contribute (top prize is worth $4500), but I appreciate that there is a large travel cost for many people to get to the DO, and some may not be able to afford to give anything.

I currently have a slight problem, in that I can't match up the names that the Churchill have given me as people who are booked, with people who have PM'd me saying they have booked.

Please note to attend sponsored events (champagne reception, Virgin, AMEX meal) you must book on the group rate.

Please could you PM me with your name if I don't already have it. At present I can only match 9 names out of 21!

There is a registration form on the websitehttp://www.hyattlondondo2012.weebly.com. You need to fill this in if you want to take part in the Hyatt promotions (because you have to agree to terms and conditions).
