Title: Dallas 2005
Post by Donna_D. on Dec 28th, 2004, 11:15am
My gift to Clusterville this year is that I have been working hard on the convention for 2005.

Pending confirmation on the dates and a signed contract this information MAY be subject to changes

Proposed dates:  July 15, 16 and 17 2005...I am awaiting the fine print  from the hotel to finalize the dates.

The hotel is the Crown Plaza Hotel North Dallas-Addison

The Rack Rates are normally $149.00 a night, however our rates will be only $69.00 a night  ;;D

DO NOT CALL TO SET YOUR RESERVATIONS YET
details still need to be worked out...I will let you know A.S.A.P. when you can start calling.
Here is a link to the hotel:

http://www.ichotelsgroup.com/h/d/cp/1/en/hd/dalad?irs=null


I have requested that our hospitality suite is one that is accessible from the pool  and the Texas sized Jacuzzi areas ;;D.


I have located an oxygen company near the hotel where people can order oxygen  for use at the hotel.

LINCARE INC
Durable Medical Equipment
(972)478-2882
2554 TARPLEY RD
CARROLLTON, TX 75006

We may have a special deal in the works with this company (Thank you Linda Howell).

I have arranged for a Texas licensed daycare provider to provide on site daycare (for a fee of course to be paid by the individual parents) to provide babysitting services if needed/requested.  Contact me if you are in need of these services.

What by chance is the Airport most will be flying into, and is there a shuttle?  Are a few TX folk going to be running taxi service for all?  

I so much want to be there this year, so I need to get some research done early.... ;;D

Redd,

2 Airports in Dallas/Ft. Worth.

DFW & Love Field

Most commercial airlines fly into DFW.  That should be your airport of choice.  Cheaper to fly to DFW.

Most of the hotels in Dallas do offer airport transportation.  I'm sure Donna will come along and confirm this, and also I am certain she will check w/the hosting hotel to make sure of the transportation to and from airport.

The hotel website doesn't mention anything about shuttles to/from the airports. The cab fares are listed and Dallas Love is cheaper ($25.00 I think) Southwest Airlines flies into Love. If we can really pull it together, maybe some of us can meet up and split cabs.

Post by Donna_D. on Dec 29th, 2004, 7:13am
I am working on finalizing details...including details about transportation.  

No one will have to walk from the Airport!  LOL  ;;D


Just a couple of more calls and I will have it all worked out.


Thanks,

DD

Count me in...  That's my birthday weekend...  I might even bring the wife...  Yeah right!!!  It's just a 6 - 7 hour drive for me.  I got to go shopping for a speedo  [smiley=hurl.gif]...  Just joking... Don't want to damage the minds of the kids that are staying there.

Thank you in advance, Byte...for not buying the speedo. ;;D

I hope to see you in Albuquerque later this month... :)

Hi, long time lurker, first time poster.  I'll probably drop by the convention since I'm not too far from the area.

The Houston Headache Clinic(http://www.houstonheadacheclinic.com/) has a Dallas-based office not far from Addison.  

Doctors Matthew and Kailasam are top-rate.  Diagnosed my clusters in less than 5 minutes consultation.  They may be interested in sending a rep from their office to the convention or something similar.  Might be nice to have a local CH expert available in some capacity.

Donna seems like you seem to be thinking of EVERYTHING.  You are a great gal!

If we can afford this trip, the daycare arrangements are a wonderful addition.  We NEVER EVER have a sitter so that is ALWAYS an issue with us.

Thanks so much.

I have telephoned and emailed the group events coordinator at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and hope to meet with him this Friday to confirm all the details.


Stay tuned for more details!

I sent this to Donna D. and she asked me to post this here.

I know I brought this up at the meeting Saturday, but would like to post it here also.  
 
I have Lincare (my provider) all set to deliver 4 E-tanks to the Hotel as soon as the date & place are determined in stone.  I get a special rate (probably because I am so special)     and I will gladly pay for that as I did for the NY convention.  If there is a need for more 02 maybe someone else NEARER to Dallas, can also bring theirs as they did last year.  CC needed a lot as I, and others also did.  
 
I will also be thinking of what to bring/send as donation prizes for the raffle again.  
 
Linda  




If someone who is attending the convention lives near enough to drive...and wants to bring their own 02 tank, that would be great as it is hard to determine ahead of time how much 02 will be needed.

Also, this is a good time to be considering what you can send or bring for raffle prizes.  We made a good deal of money last year in Nashville by the generous donations of people.  

Thank you.   Linda

Don't let being in cycle stop you.  If we did that, chronics would never go to convention.
