Reposting this from the chipboard.

Hi, everyone. For those of you who have not yet booked a room at the South Point and/or registered for the convention and/or bought your banquet tickets, this link will take you directly to the page with all of the info needed: Deadline is 21 May for the discount.

https://ccgtcc.com/events/convention/registration.aspx

If you have difficulty with anything, let a board member know or reply here and I'll get you the help and answers you need.

A quick plug for staying at the South Point... I don't care if you have comps or find better prices elsewhere. If you do NOT stay at the SP during the convention, it hurts the club and can jeopardize our ability to negotiate favorable rates for the convention floor, the union workers fees, and more. Consider the cost to drive to the SP from your cheaper/free hotel. Consider how much earlier you have to get up to drive over. Consider the Uber/lyft fees. Instead of all that hassle, just change out of your jammie's upstairs and wander down to the show floor with your eyes half closed. Grab a coffee and get ready to buy all the chips that the dealers have (bring your wallet or PayPal ID). In addition to the convenience, the food at all of the restaurants is top notch, so you don't have to travel around town to eat. Plus, you get a coupon book with freebies and discounts. If nothing I just said can convince you to drop your other reservation and stay at the South Point, maybe other people can add something that I overlooked.
