THREE DAYS LEFT for hotel reservations!

Post by john elder »

At the discounted rate for the ORCA convention at the Kona Kai ! After that, you will be looking at rates about 2.5 times higher! Best get moving! There are still a couple rooms left!

John is right, as usual. It will be tough to ever find another waterfront hotel In Californian at these rates. Hope to see you there.

For those that are in boat with Tommy, there is a nice Ramada Inn not too far from the Kona Kai that you can likely get in for substantially less… short Uber away!

Yep. I waited too long also. They quoted me a room at $266 (same as travelocity) but that's going to be a bit much for me this year. It's my own fault.

Thanks John for the alternate accommodation suggestion......I'll be staying at the Ramada, not as convenient but easier on the wallet which leaves more funds to buy a reel or two!

Whoever got us these incredible rooms at $159 per night (I assume it was Dr. Baits) deserves a trophy at our ORCA banquet. I can’t wait.

PS..John is that your yacht lower left, or did Ron G. row up from Florida?

Dr. Elder's is on the lower left center side of the peninsula just left of the smaller clay roofed buildings. :mrgreen:
Love those Open Face Spinning Reels! (Especially ABU & ABU/Zebco)

I was telling a buddy that our ORCA national meet is running from a Tuesday to Friday, and not the weekend. He said it’s the tackle version of the Early Bird Dinner Special for seniors. Yikes.
