New Years Eve is right around the corner so Ken and I have made arrangements to have the Marina Del Rey Hotel, provide the Waterfront Banquet Room for our "WELCOME 2013" NYE Party.

THE ONLINE RSVP IS NOW CLOSED. YOU MAY STILL ATTEND AND PAY $30 AT THE DOOR


The cost for this years NYE will be the same as last year at $22 pre-paid OR $30 at the door!!!

To avoid paying the extra $8 at the door - follow the Paypal link above to pay.

IF YOU ARE PAYING FOR MORE THAN 1 PERSON, JUST CHANGE THE NUMBER IN THE PAYPAL BOX TO THE APPROPRIATE AMOUNT.

THERE ARE "NO REFUNDS" ON PAYPAL PAYMENTS - THE MONEY COLLECTED GOES TO COVER ALL EXPENSES INCURRED TO MAKE THE EVENT HAPPEN


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FINAL UPDATE: 12/31 - 9AM


IMPORTANT: The RSVP List will close TODAY @ 3pm. If you have not pre-paid online at the event page by then, you will have to pay $30 at the door

FOR ANY OF YOU WHO HAVE NOT SIGNED UP TO HAVE FUN WITH US AND RING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH FRIENDS - IT'S NOT TOO LATE. - SIGN UP NOW!

FINAL UPDATE AND DETAILS FOR NIGHT:

1) VERY IMPORTANT: The L.A. City parking lot that we usually use for additional parking is partially taken by the City construction crew. It looks like there may only be about 30-40 spots there.

IN ADDITION: I just found out that there will be a charity event at the MDR Hotel starting at 7pm so we will be competing with them for parking!

So my recommendation for tonight is GET THERE EARLY!!! COME HAVE DINNER AT THE HOTEL BEFORE THE PARTY AND USE THE VALET PARKING FOR $10 - ALSO IF YOU CAN RIDE POOL - DO SO!

2) CHECK-IN: We will have a check-in table in the Waterfront Room which is where our Party will be. When you enter the Lobby take the hallway to the left and we are all the way down at the end of the hallway. Please check in here to get your VIP wristband that will give you access to the party and access to the discounted drinks and food in addition to your party favors and raffle ticket.

FOR THOSE WHO ARE PAYING AT THE DOOR - PLEASE HAVE $30 EXACT CHANGE

WE WILL BE RAFFLING OFF SOME PRIZES DURING THE EVENING INCLUDING SOME BOTTLES OF CHAMPAGNE, SOME STARBUCKS GIFT CARDS, AND A $50 AMAZON GIFT CREDIT - SO PLEASE BE SURE AND HOLD ON TO THE RAFFLE TICKET INCLUDED IN YOUR CHECK-IN BAG.

BE SURE AND CHECK IN TO GET YOUR WRISTBAND - NO DISCOUNTED DRINKS OR FOOD WILL BE SERVED WITHOUT THE WRISTBAND.

ADDITIONALLY: ANY MEMBER WHO TRIES TO CRASH THE PARTY WITHOUT PRE-PAYING OR PAYING AT THE DOOR WILL BE POLITELY ASKED TO LEAVE AND WILL BE BANNED FROM THE GROUP. WE HAD A FEW LAST YEAR SO THAT IS WHY I MENTION IT.....

The attendee list is comprised of your Meetup profile photo and how many admissions you have paid for. So if a if one of your guests arrives late, make sure they know what your "profile name" is, as sometimes it does not match your real name. If we cannot match your guest to a paid profile, they may have to pay the full "door price". Make sure they have your cell phone to contact you in case of a problem.

3) NEW MEMBERS: If you are a new member or this is your first event with any of the attending groups, please identify yourself to someone at the check-in desk so you can receive a glow wristband, in addition to your VIP band. This will help the Organizers help you get introduced and shown around. The the old saying: "Help Us - Help You"!

4) PARKING: GET THERE EARLY - If you get to the MDR Hotel early, there are 200 VALET spots available in the Hotel lot. VALET PARKING AT THE MDR HOTEL IS $10 AND WELL WORTH IT. If this lot is full, there is a "Public Lot" on the N/W corner of Bali Way and Admiralty Way. As I explained above, there will only be limited parking there

5) DUI CHECKPOINT: There will be a DUI Checkpoint on Lincoln Blvd. at Maxella Avenue from 8pm to 2am on Dec. 31st.

SO PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE!!! I WANT ALL OUR MEMBERS JOINING US FOR MANY MORE MEETUPS IN 2013

SEE YOU ALL TONIGHT AND FOR THE MEMBERS WHO ARE NOT JOINING US

HAVE A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
