We're still working on a lot of events associated with the meetup. Besides the big Friday night party and the speakers on Saturday, we're setting up a poker tournament (yes, Texas Hold 'Em and yes, Drew will definitely be in that one), probably on Friday. We're also working on several other similar group events; our objective is that you'll have lots of options to choose from and can pick what you want to do in any given day. Lots of ideas coming our way and we're sorting through the best ones now.
If you haven't booked your room yet, now is the time to jump on it. Call them today and grab your spot and you'll get the discounted rate.
One note, and it's important: if you already scheduled your room at Treasure Island, please check and verify that they associated it with the Fark block of rooms with the code FARKCOM. They're not showing as many as we're showing on our side as booked, and we don't want anybody who has booked to lose their spot because of a mix-up. For some of you who booked online, we heard that there were a few issues getting the code to work and we want to make sure that there aren't any hitches now.
Anyway, if you have event ideas, send them to me (Tony) or Melissa at our Fark emails (our name @fark.com).
