Title: Corecon SE 2017
Post by: rcjordan on February 16, 2017, 02:44:48 PM
Looks like we're going to have a meetup.  Dates: Apr 21-26 (+/- per your travel plans).

We're working on possible easy-ish venues but that's still in flux. NFFC wants some place warm, but the coastal Virginia-Carolinas region is fickle about that in late April so I may have to lend him an overcoat.  

Time is short. Who's serious about this?  

For those long-distance travelers, take a look at these airport codes as possibilities:  ORF, ILM, RDU, CHS.  Some of us have done RDU & CHS before, but much depends on who is coming.

Suggestions welcome!

Good man, Jason.  Thanks.

For the new members, this will be a continuous, rolling business meeting with agendas on-the-fly & eyeball-to-eyeball, in the long tradition of the now infamous Pubcon1. I will say that if you have problems with blackhattery or otherwise bending machines to your will, you'll have to check that at the door.

I propose Wilmington, NC as the venue.

Has everything.

Old (by US standards) city-center district with plenty of meeting spots and exploration-worthy restaurants.  It's now one of the fastest-growing tourism spots behind Charleston, SC. Great mix of affluent gentrification and hipster trendy. Beaches of several kinds literally adjoining the sprawling city. Should be enough hotels. (Louise will verify availability).

Again, for newcomers, there are no fees, no formal meeting rooms, no podiums. We work out of hotel lobbies and restaurants. You pay as you go. Attendee numbers tend to run between 12-20 (occasionally much higher).

<added>
The South did not surrender when Charleston fell. It was later, when Fort Fisher & Wilmington fell.  Charleston was good at starting a fight, Wilmington was good at keeping a fight.

How to explain corecon to the uninitiated? Rumbas ping'd me last night about the 'rules'.

Quote
[1] Don't be a jerk.

Oh, and, [2] "you should have eaten some more then."

IIRC, it's Don't be a d##k but 'jerk' works, too.

If you are expecting 'structure' there isn't much, if any. Basically, we pick a city and gather, usually around a suggested hotel. You come & go as you please. If you can only make it for 1-2 days? Fine. Group meals can be problematic if the group is large, but selection is driven by local knowledge (if available), yelp, and whoever is around the table when someone says Hey! Where are we gonna eat?  Rumbas' rule #2 applies to group meals, we just split the tab equally.  Thecore doesn't have the server itemize the bill. If you just get a salad, you're gonna pay for part of someone else's steak.

More as it comes to me...

Sounds just like Grehan

Recently named "Best American Riverfront" and "Best Neighborhood for Dining Al Fresco" by USA Today, historic downtown Wilmington blends Southern hospitality and Antebellum-era architecture with a lively yet laid-back atmosphere. Set on the famed Riverwalk, our Cape Fear riverfront hotel is steps away from boutique shopping, dining, historic sites, special events and a vibrant nightlife. Take horse-drawn carriages down Market Street, explore specialty shops in the historic Cotton Exchange

Working fiercely on it as well.

Getting to Wilmington airport is a b###h internationally. I'm thinking Dulles and then either drive or domestic flight down. Both will take about 8-10 hours depending on layover time in Dulles.

Any other ideas? Maybe the Eurotrash could do a call pool from somewhere?

Post by: rcjordan on February 23, 2017, 02:34:42 PM
Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines.  Corecon SE 2017 is officially underway.

Louise is working out a contract with the hotel. In short, we will be responsible for guaranteeing to fill 10 rooms
for 5 contiguous nights.  As of this post, there are seven (7) rooms in the hotel on hold. Cost is approx $200
per night for a nice 4-star, King bedroom located in the city-center historic district.  (That's a discount of approx 15%).

Check-in: Friday April 21
Check-out: Wednesday April 26


Room-wise, this is a sorta tough-to-do venue.  The town's city-center, however, is almost custom-built for the "PubconOne Experience"
we all crave. As always, when we go above 12-16 in the group the logistics will go to hell, but we've pulled it off before.

For some reason, the hotel reminds me of the one in Limerick, IE. Louise frankly discussed our group's (apparently bizarre) meeting
requirements with the local Convention & Visitors Bureau staff, who then made an excellent recommendation for the hotel and surrounding
pubs & restaurants. Louise specifically addressed our past problems with US liquor laws and our free-style lobby meetings. We believe the
hotelier ended up with a grasp of our needs and offered some good suggestions.

Consider this to be a headzup. The first 7 to commit by posting below for the full 5 days get the rooms currently on hold.  

<added>
AFAIK, I've now pm'd all of those that have previously said they are 'In' and pointed them to this post.


Title: Re: Corecon SE 2017
Post by: drcool on February 23, 2017, 02:57:24 PM
Which hotel is it? I don't know if I can commit to all 5 days but definitely want to make it for at least 2 or 3.


Title: Re: Corecon SE 2017
Post by: Rumbas on February 23, 2017, 03:04:02 PM

Will take it one step further and figure out how to get there. Fingers crossed.


Title: Re: Corecon SE 2017
Post by: Mackin USA on February 23, 2017, 03:13:31 PM

Must leave very early Monday morning.

Does the hotel have a BAR  ;D


Title: Re: Corecon SE 2017
Post by: rcjordan on February 23, 2017, 03:27:13 PM
>ground work

You *know* Louise did it. I was forced to go at gunpoint.

>Which hotel is it?

If you don't mind, I'll post that later after we see if the contract is going to work for the remaining 5-day rooms.

>a BAR

Yes, several within 1.5 blocks.  Looks perfect.
<added> One in the hotel and they say they can keep it open until 2am if we book the bartender.

>leave Monday

The Visitors Bureau reps said late April is the beginning of the "Bride Season" (***HUGE*** in Wilmington) and weekend rooms are going to go first. We have several satellite hotels picked but I need to confirm the 5-day stays first and then work from there.


Title: Re: Corecon SE 2017
Post by: Drastic on February 23, 2017, 05:11:21 PM
IN for the 5-nights for sure, probably more before/after too.


Title: Re: Corecon SE 2017

Title: Re: Corecon SE 2017
Post by: Mackin USA on February 24, 2017, 02:36:07 PM
What happens if we don't?

Can we still get rooms for 3 days at a higher rate?


Title: Re: Corecon SE 2017
Post by: rcjordan on February 24, 2017, 03:41:27 PM
>Can we still get rooms for 3 days at a higher rate?

Hard to say about the particular hotel we've chosen and *particularly* for the weekend. The hotel rep said that the weekend was booking out. Bridal parties mentioned both by the hotelier and the CVB. I can't emphasize enough how big a wedding destination Wilmington is. IIRC, NFFC & Vikings saw several brides in the streets last time we passed through in May. That's why Louise jumped on the contract offer in order to block out some availability.

That said, there are some peripheral hotels (ranging from near to far) that we'll jump on March 1st.

LM is in, so I've been told. That leaves 5.

Until Mar 01, my best advise is...

Title: Re: Corecon SE 2017
Post by: rcjordan on February 28, 2017, 04:11:27 PM
Only 6 confirmed and we're getting close. I'm told by a corporate friend in the hotel chain that they need a minimum of 8 rooms to consider it a group booking. I expect the hotel to drop the offer but Louise will see if she can strike a deal. (Hotel group-booking reps have a quota to meet.)

I'm thinking ahead:

Nestled on Market Street in Wilmington, NC, Catch prepares modern seafood cuisine with international flair from coast to table.

Owner and Chef, Keith Rhodes opened Catch Restaurant in 2006 in hopes that diners would catch his passion for North Carolina seafood. His menu features dishes that highlight seasonal flavors – from sweet potatoes, to blackberries, fresh herbs, and heirloom vegetables. Every ingredient in his delicious cuisines is consciously sourced from organic growers and local fisheries that support sustainable practices. And each dish is complemented by the creativity of Chef Rhodes and his ability to use what’s around him. Experience Catch for a unique way to explore the Cape Fear Coast without ever leaving the dinner table.

Wow, opportunity to tour multiple colonies with royalty. Raz, you really need any other kind of push?

Maybe we can get down to Southport again.  I was also recently taken to another great seafood house about 10 miles north of city-center.

Raz, if you need a map, we're going to be right where New York & Disney World meet on the coastline.

You're a bunch of assholes, but it's looking interesting. Getting the last details sorted this weekend.

Norwegian sucks, and I dont have that many days to spend in NY.

So far looking at this, but HATE having to suck up 2 layovers. And the layover times might be too close for comfort..

Just make sure there is no fire:


Quote
The dogs all had a party
They came from near and far.
Some dogs came by aeroplane
And some dogs came by car.

Each dog signed his name
Upon a special book
And each dog hung his a##hole
Upon a special hook.

One dog was not invited,
And this aroused his ire.
He stormed into the party
And loudly shouted “FIRE!”

In the scene that followed,
The dogs forgot to look
And grabbed just any a##hole
From off of any hook.

And that is why when dogs roam
On land or sea or foam,
They sniff each others’ assholes,
To try and find their own!

Absolutely. Indefinitely, that's why I just booked and confirmed:

IN:
Friday, April 21. ILM. 16:45

OUT:
Tuesday, April 25. ILM. 14:39

Long flight, lots of layovers and BS, but I felt it was the right thing to do, hehe. Looking forward to seeing all your lovely faces!

cool Dras, it will be epic as usual. REALLY looking forward to it.

I saw RC mentioned Toolman in another thread. Would be interesting if we could find him, dust him off and get him come as well. I don't have anything on him anymore though.

We never made any progress on either Mayer or Boser? We could do some SoMe and see if we could round up a few more of the old gang? Then again...

Was going to fly, but will drive down if we need wheels. How's the headcount looking?
