Have they sent you a contract?  What are the deposit/cxl policy.  They stated we are responsible for 50% of the block of rooms.  Do they require a deposit for 50% up front?  Also, you might want to try to negotiate a lower rate.  I found rates on line ranging between $62 and $72 per night.

In the other tab, I have a pm for you in the making.  No need to put in this link now, though.  We'll talk!

Hi Francis,

I don't think I've seen you post before, so welcome!  As to links so previous AMG's... read posts from last year around this time through the end of September for details of the San Francisco AMG and in August of '06 for info on the Montreal AMG.  Overall, they're very informal, but I've always left feeling like I didn't get to spend as much time as I wanted with other attendees or doing things in the city where the AMG was held.  This is a very positive thing, though, as I've enjoyed meeting every member that I've met and loved both cities I've visited (Montreal and S.F.).  If you have any particular questions, feel free to post 'em or ask other members in a PM.

David

As mentionned in a previous post - this will be my first AMG in Mexico. Is anyone interested in sharing a room? Trying to save a bit of money as my flight ticket will be more or less 1000$.  I don't snore and can keep to my bed!  :D   My arrival and departure dates are flexible.

Hi Francis


Look forward to seeing you at the AMG this year.

Nearer the time there will be people coming in looking to share a room, so just be patient..all good things come to he who waits... ;)

Ignore Rab, he is "coupled" but he is not old..I'm the Old women round here and no-one is going to take that away from me...and the good thing about that is, I get to give lots of "grandma" hugs to all you handsome young fella's.. ;)

Hugs

I have taken Dennis' advice and made travel reservations even though we cannot yet make hotel reservations.  I will be flying into Mexico City on Wed. Aug 13 at 2:20 pm (CO 1424 from Houston) and returning home on Tues. Aug 19 at 12:04 pm (CO 1725) to Houston.  I was able to use miles so the cost was just $66 plus $25 for travel insurance.  I have been unable to use these Delta miles for the past two years so i was pleased I could work it out because this is an expensive trip.  Regrettably i could not stay through Wednesday because I couldn't get a mileage flight out that day...but six days will be my longest AMG stay (and double my three day short stay last year.)  I'll be watching the forums to see when i can lock in the hotel room.  Looking forward to another great AMG this summer!

I seem to remember some of that scenery, old man!   :-*

Dare I mention that particular night club in Montreal where certain gentlemen performed certain types of exhibitions in various stages of undress? Hmmmm?

And then there was the incident in San Francisco! WELL!  Darlings, just come see Mother Mark for all the nitty gritty details.

HUGS,

I can assure you I have no idea which night club you are speaking of!  Unless of course it's the one that was on the left hand side of the St. Catherine, about mid block, with the enormous cat walk in the center of the room, lots of video monitors, and the bar off to the left.

I didn't actually go there!  However, a certain goat herding granny and her partner in crime did!  (But you didn't hear that from me.)

And as far as you knowing all the "nitty gritty"?  Hmph!  Dare I mention what went on in rooms 1412 and 1415 at Hotel Gouverner Place Dupuis?  How many times was security called to that floor?

RAB

P.S.  What incident in SF?   ???  (I missed that one I guess.   >:()

For someone who claims he has never been inside said nightclub you seem to know the lay out pretty well...and in my defence I did only stay 2 hours..once you've seen 10 beautiful men strip off you've seem then all...as for the security, well I think they were paid a back hander by someone who needed is beauty sleep... ;D.

I missed the SF incident, I'm sure Mark will spill the beans one of these days.. ;)
