Banquet seating
I am assuming that most of you guys got your convention packet via email. I was wondering if maybe we can all get together and come up with a seating plan in advance so we can all sit near each other???

Here's info. copied from packet:

BANQUET SEATING RESERVATIONS
You must reserve your seat for the convention banquet. Joy Wyse will be in charge of dining table reservations. You can sign up to reserve a table in advance by sending an email to joy@lonestarstampede.com. We can seat up to eight (8) people at each table and one person may send in a reservation for up to eight people to sit at the same table as long as they are all registered for the convention or the banquet. We will inform you of your banquet table number when you check in for the convention. If you choose not to sign up in advance, you can still do so when you arrive in San Antonio. Just look for Joy at a table in the ballroom lobby. If you are disabled or have special needs, be sure to let her know when you sign up so that she can seat you at a more easily accessible table.


One person can make a request for each table and I am thinking it might be easier to do it now versus when we get there when most of the good tables are going to be taken. Besides, it's good to get it out of the way so we can cram as much fun as possible into our stay there.

Thoughts?

Thanks, Pam.

I sent an email to Pat and Gwen to ask that they email me the packet.

I have aol - so who knows what might have happened to it - if they sent it to me already.

Cathy, Pam Cakes and Gemini Lion,
Aktrading and I already are at a table with some friends but sure would like to be able to sit near your table.

It would be good if we knew the table numbers so we can get the tables somewhat together. Last year Binski, Tiny, me and a couple of others were WAY across the banquet hall from KB and everyone.

I've pm'd Kiss and Momo to see what they think. I also looked at the running list of OLS'rs attending but am not sure if it is up to date.

I estimate we will need at least 5 tables, maybe 4.

Hey gang,
I contacted Gwen and she said that Joy who is handling banquet seating has been having PC trouble.

Has anyone asked that all the OLS'ers be near each other?

If not I am willing to take this task on but would need those who have already set up tables to e-mail me with the names of those at their table. And if you haven't set up your table of 8 when it's filled let me know. Please send info privately and I promise not to reveal anyone's "real" name.

Have a sweeps club meeting this afternoon so won't be able to response to anyone until late afternoon.


See everyone in 47 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gwen has informed me that Joy is back on-line and busy getting caught up responding to emails.

I emailed Joy and asked if there were any way to get the OLS tables together. I don't want to make her job any harder but I thought if we identified ourselves as being from Online-Sweepstakes when we reserve tables it might make it easier for her to accomodate us.

Also, I submitted a reservation for 6 people as of this writing. Being there is a max. of 8 people per there are two seats left so if anyone wants in at our table please pm me A.S.A.P. so I can try to update the reservation.

Those at our table will be:

Me
Tinymomo
Pamcakes
Cathyveester and DH
DJ'sprincess

Thanks...!!!

Edited: 2 seats have already been filled.
