Who's coming to the SubRegatta in Keystone 2014?

Postby salmon » Sun Jan 26, 2014 4:12 am

My family and I are really excited to go back to Keystone this year. As we prepare for the Regatta, Colorado Crew will want to reserve a block of rooms (this will help us get the best rates), which if it was like last year, you guys will be thrilled - I think. That being said, Keystone is knee deep into the ski season and we will not be able to reserve the rooms for another couple of months. I am a worry wart and not sure how many rooms to reserve, so if you are planning to come would you reply to this posting and let me know.

To be able to put faces to names and subs together will definitely be one of my highlights, but there is a ton of things that can be done by the family around Keystone. I know Tina and Sam will do some horseback riding and I might get some fly fishing in. There is definitely a LOT of shopping both in Keystone, but also a short distance away. Would you add things your family or you might like to do? I will be staying up here for 7-8 days, are you going to spend additional time here too?
If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

To add to what Tom is saying essentially there is two resorts at keystone the regatta will be held at the older part of the resort. The newer part ( walking distance) has some great restaurants, shops and activities for the family. There is also Breckinridge a half hour drive from keystone and the town of Dillion That has a lot of factory outlet stores and restaurants as well. The SubRegatta 2014 will be like none other in that we hope to not only have a great time enjoying our hobby but hopefully our significant others can have a great time as well taking in the colorado Rocky Mountains and all the outdoor activities that are available.

I plan on coming in Thursday, and like Matt, staying till Monday. I was hoping block room reservations/rates would be locking in sooner rather than later, but I guess I should go ahead and reserve my flights even though not quite certain of accommodations yet. (What's the situation with other nearby hotels? Of course, my preference would be to stay at the agreed-upon SubRegatta HQ, as so many of us have done for the Carmel gatherings.) Please post pronto when specific information becomes available. Really looking forward to it!

We will be keeping everybody posted on the room rates. Keystone wanted the number of people that are going to attend and since we don't have any numbers yeat we may have to do like last summer. The hotel gave a (code) from the lodge that offered rates for our event for all who attended.
Will post more as soon as we here from keystone.

Tom,
I suggest doing what was done last year. If you're looking for a head count, forget it. That approach has never worked in the past. I think issuing the discount code and advertising that is the best bet!

By being able to get a block of rooms we might gain what? Better rate? guaranteed room? designated hotel? I honestly am not sure, but I can make guesses.

Last year we stayed in the hotel a few blocks away, but, speaking for myself, it would be great to stay here:

This is located right where we sail.

If people want to put their name down, we can see. I see the benefit as being able to get a block of rooms and not get bumped if another group books. I would guess, but if, as you say Matt it won't work or people will not let us know then you are right, we will get whatever is available. Either way, I think people will really be pleased with the rates.

Thoughts?

Tom,

I know a lot of folks are planning on attending. That is not a worry in the least. They are coming. I'm not certain what the reason is, but only a fraction communicate early that they will be attending, which makes it very difficult to get an early and accurate head count. It has always worked well in the past that it is left up to the individual to make his/her own reservations at the hosting hotel. Negotiate a discount rate for the event and post that rate. The hotel in Carmel had a special reservation page for the Subcommittee event. Chris simply communicated the link to the discount reservation rate and the rest was up to the modeler.

Thanks Matt! I understand. I know of a few that are going, it will be well attended, and I need to relax (yeah like that is going to happen) - man I am really looking forward to this trip - 6 months and counting. It is going to be a blast - Big TOM has some great ideas for the course and seminars.

Amirhossein Payande,
I am sorry, I do not know anything about travel internationally, but maybe one of the leaders of SubCommittee here can speak to this or Matt Thor.
Peace,
Tom

Arranging for international travel is the responsibility of the individual(s) who will be traveling. The SubCommittee is not in a position to provide assistance in that area.
