2014 Night Rustic Reunion
First Run-off for Location and Date
Hello Night Rustics and Rustic-ettes!!!!!
You may already be aware that I got the not-so-prestigious honor of being your chairman this year. The time has finally arrived to begin your selection of possible locations and dates for the 2014 Reunion. It will definitely be LAND BASED this year, and hopefully we will have a good attendance, as well. I also chose mid-country cities to promote more Rustic participation. I am being optomistic for this reunion and have asked for a block of rooms between 10 to 16.
Again to help facilitate attendance, I have tried to find quarters for our stay which will provide interesting out-of-the-ordinary boutique-type lodging along with plenty of things to do and see in interesting locations. Most of the dates fall in the AUG-SEP range, with one in OCT, so that might be a factor in your choice as well.
My plan is to offer these for each of you to pick from and email me your 1st choice, whether it be for location or date, but unfortunately I can't go back and ask for different dates than those listed for the respective locations. After I receive these votes from you (one vote per household please), I will take the two highest grossing choices and put those two back out for the group's final selection Run-off vote. After the final tally has been made by you all, self-registration will be available and I will buckle down to do my thing, working up an optional activities schedule for us to do while there, similar to our D.C. Reunion.
There are 5 venues in 4 cities from which to pick. I tried hard to put in a San Fran pick as well, but got either no response, or their price was out of the question.
Here are the first Run-off choices to pick from:
Hyatt Regency Resort Spa and Casino in Incline Village, right on Lake Tahoe (TVL)
Oct 20th thru 24th at $159 per night plus club fee of $15 and taxes (4 nights).
Cheshire Hotel in St. Louis (STL)
Sep 15th thru 20th at $108 per night (Gov't perdiem rate) plus taxes and $7 self parking fee per night if driving in.

Aug or Sep at $115 per night plus taxes and $15 parking fee per night if driving in.
Offering 10% discount in hotel restaurants for breakfast and dinner.
Hotel Monteleone in the French Quarter, New Orleans (MSY)

Please reply to me at your earliest convenience (like yesterday, haha) with your most favorite pick.
