Convention Registration ..Heads up!

Post by john elder »

Just made my reservation at the Kona Kai Resort for the ORCA convention September 6-8 (checkout AM on the 9th)! Please note the number in the Reel News no longer works. You can get the hotel by dialing 619-452-3138 or go to the website at www.resortkonakai.com. Make sure to tell them you are with the Old Reel Collectors Association. Its shaping up to be a great show... details in upcoming Reel News editions!

John- if we make the reservations on line, the hotel requests a "promo code" or a "group code."

Does ORCA have one?

Thanks.

Usually, the reservation code is in the Contract where you are informed of the hotel room rate.

I made my reservation today. The group rate is available by just telling them the group name of Old Reel Collectors Association. I note the rate is $159 per night and the cancellation policy is 7 days in advance of arrival.

Looking forward to meeting some new west coast and pacific friends.

Note for you East Coast folks especially, we have 19 rooms also booked for thursday night, the 9th (as in obligation!), so those that can, fill up those rooms and enjoy San Diego for another night!

Sure would like to attend, and actually you folks. But, with our resettling we'll be headed in the other direction -East.
