IWPS will be held February 2-4 in sunny Charlotte, NC.  Let me know if you have any more questions.

Hello,
Is there a hotel giving special rates for IWPS? Do you know the schedule of events and venue yet? Many thanks, Linden :)

I just called Holiday Inn (the toll free number), and they said that all rooms under the PSI rate were sold out, and that rooms are available, but are $169 for one with a double bed. DAMN!!!!!!!

Is there any chance of there being more rooms made available at the lower rate? I ain't shellin' out close to $200 with taxes for a hotel room...

Did you talk to Trina? If you call the hotel directly and talk to her, that should do it.Though when I booked yesterday, she made it sound like there are only smoking rooms left and that they were running low.I didn't even bother to specify for two beds~oopsah! (notes location of sleeping bags).
There must be secondary hotels nearby. Even the cheap rate adds up after 4 days.Then there's...always floor surfing...

Same congestion as usual. I am still sorting out a flood of applications and inquiries about this stuff. But here is the best information we have available AS OF JANUARY 4, 2006 at 3:09 PM

If you inquired or applied or paid or filled out a form after that time, relax! There will be an update that includes you. Here's what we had at that time:

The venue representatives who are in are as follows:
Columbus (Ed's team) Tiffany Smith
Worcester TBD
Boston Cantab Eric Darby
Omaha TBD
DC TBD
Baltimore TBD
Delray Beach Darrell Payne
Mesa TBD
Fayetteville TBD
Seattle TBD
Chicago (Mental Graffiti) TBD
San Jose TBD
Lizard Lounge Iyeoka Okoawo
Madison Evelyn Gildre-Voyles
Winston Salem TBD
Baton Rouge TBD
Denver Andrea Gibson
Brooklyn TBD
Urbana TBD
Corpus Christi Adriana Ramirez
Ann Arbor Versiz
Ozarks Doug Shields
ABQ Aaron Cuffee
Houston TBD
St. Louis Stephanie Williams
Montevallo TBD
Dallas (rock Baby's) Joaquin Zihuatanejo
Minneapolis Cynthia French

Indies, these were limited to ten slots until January 1. Then the list opened up. These have been accepted.
Zork
Lawrence Green
Buddy Wakefield
Matthew Hernandez
Johathan  Brown
Steve Murray Ireland
Jonida Beqo
Bryan Patillo Japan
Marcelus Wisler
Alishun Langston
Adam Henze
Jesse Grace
Jim Levine
Matthew Rucker

NOTE: There will be a Canadian or two also, so it looks like we will have representatives from at least four countries. I have had a serious inquiry from a Danish poet as well, so we can hope for five nations. And Pilot had indicated he was going to be here, but I have not seen an application or payment yet. In a perfect world, we might see six nations represented!

I called the toll free number on Friday, and they told me that all the rooms were taken. I called Trina this morning, and she said she was "in a different system" and would call me back. Never heard from her. Tried again a little while ago, but she was gone for the day...

Hm.
Depending on how many beds we have & whatnot, we might have space in our room.Or there's another location a second set of folks are looking into that's cheaper and I'll try to relate what they find.

There are tons of rooms available at the 89.00 rate. The hotel is apparently run by morons!!!! Be persistant and keep calling the hotel directly.

Finally talked to a real human being at the front desk in Charlotte and got it all set now. Thanks!

I know I promised to finalize the list of contestants, but I didn't plan on waht a piece of crap Quickbooks Pro 2006 for the Mac is. I used to use Quickbooks Pro 5 and it was a wonderful program. Then they "improved" it and now it SUCKS!!!!!

Anyway, technical assistance isn't available until Monday and I can't make the accounting software stay open for more than about 2 minutes at a time. I'll fill in the blanks as soon as I can. But probably not until Monday. Sorry. Go yell at Intuit.
