Here is an update to our 35th anniversary party preparations.
There have been some questions regarding travel from the airport to the lodge. There are a few options. There is and airport shuttle that goes from Pearson Airport to Huntsville every day. It leaves the airport at 2:00pm and arrives in Huntsville at 4:30pm. The cost for this option is approximately $91.00 (one way) and I will make sure that you have a ride from Huntsville should you choose this option. Probably the better option would be to rent a car which will be less money and you have a car. It would be very inexpensive if a few people got together on the rental. There will also be some coming from Toronto anyway so you may be able to hitch a ride. Anyone willing to offer a ride you can post that here. Boltron has already put the offer out depending on timing and I’m quite sure that there will be some takers on that offer. Thank you Boltron!
When Do We Have To Book?
The best plan is to book now or as early as possible. We suspect it will sell out fairly quickly especially once we announce it formally in the newsletter. We have started here on the boards to give everyone here first dibs; and judging by the posts PMs and emails that I have been receiving it’s going to be a full house. We would require a $70.00 (20%) deposit per person (less for children according to the rates) to hold a room for you and that will be deducted from your room bill at the end of your stay. For those staying longer or coming early (or both) the deposit will be the same. If you are unsure of the number in your party you can book what you know now and let us know the tentative final number later.
Will There Be Factory Tours and Seminars?
Absolutely! Ian and Andrew will be organizing seminars and discussions which always prove to be very interesting and informative and I will be conducting factory tours for anyone interested in seeing where Axiom products are manufactured.
Debbie - a suggestion.
Remembering the 30 anniversary preparations and communications, I'm pretty sure the young lady who was in charge of it all (I don't remember who she was), was feeling like she was herding cats. Plus, this thread is likely to grow to be large and unwieldy over the next bunch of months and your updates may get lost as you add them as the thread grows to 26.984 replies. :-)
May I suggest that you organize things by either
1) starting a new thread that only YOU can post to so that the first post in the thread provides all of the pertinent information. At the top, put in a line (large type, bold) the date that the information was last updated If you add information, you can add it to that single place PLUS everyone will know where to look for the up-to date info.
>> OR <<
2) Take over the first post in THIS thread and use that pfirst post as the up-to-date info section like described above.
This thread (the one we are in now) can then be used for posts by everyone.
If you let it run like it is, it will quickly become ineffective.
