Skepticon 6 - Road trip!!

Skepticon is located in Springfield, Missouri and is FREE! They ask that you donate what you can or feel that it's worth. It is scheduled for November 15 - 17, 2013. Let the planning begin!

Here's the website: http://skepticon.org/

Anybody got a bus or van? Shall we all try to get in the same hotel? We can book rooms at the University Plaza Hotel right across from the Expo Center, and get the Skepticon group rate. Go here for more info http://skepticon.org/where/

    A great way to network, meet others, and learn. I'd go again.

      Me too. It was a great trip. I learned a lot and it was fun meeting these people that I had only read about or seen in YouTube videos.

    Hey guys. Just a helpful reminder. You might check your e-mail for a recent message from Skepticon suggesting you print out your Registration Summary. I recommend doing so and bringing it with you.

    OK. Jim and I have both visited the Skepticon 6 website and registered. Also, I have booked a room at the Best Western Route 66. Fabian, Jim, and I are staying in a one double bed room with one of us sleeping on the floor. I expect we'll meet at my house around 3:30 - 4pm and then leave from there. Check-in: 11/15/13
    Check-out: 11/17/13 - 12:00 Noon

    I expect we'll all agree to leave Skeptic later in the evening. I haven't checked into getting a Van, yet. Anybody want to check into that? If no, van. We can take 2 vehicles. I have room for me and three others in my Jeep.

    Can't wait! DON'T FORGET TO REGISTER FOR SKEPTICON.

      Lothar and I are planning on going. We'll get reservations at the Best Western and register for Skepticon tonight. I think if there aren't that many going, we should just go in a couple of cars. We're driving, can take two more short people or I guess 1 tall and 1 short if I ride in the back :)

    Anyone ready to purchase rooms or already have? Any news on a rental van? Sorry, I'm normally on top of this stuff

    I haven't called them to verify, yet. Any comments or concerns?

      Looks like it's 1.4 miles away on the same street as the convention. Google Maps makes it look to be an okay place for a few nights. Is this a special rate or standard?

      September 24, 2013

    • Tim

      Found it using Hotels.com. I think this is the standard rate.

      September 24, 2013

  • Tim

    We need to book rooms and look into consolidating transportation. Anybody have a van or larger vehicle? Van rental or even bus transit could be possible. Bus would probably be a lot cheaper. Sorry, I've just been very busy with night courses. Yuck.

    I just tried to book a room a the University Plaza Hotel using the group rate and the cost is $92 per night. The only room type offered was one with a single King size bed. I might book somewhere else. Any thoughts?

    September 1, 2013

    • Ladie B.

      Ditto & ditto. We're deciding how many people to share a room with and where to go.

  • Tim

    The dates are tentative and is probably my ideal trip. Leave Fairview Heights at 5pm on Friday, get to the Expo Center in time to listen to Shelly Segal sing at 9pm, and don't leave till JT Eberhard completes around 4pm on Sunday.

    We can all save money by sharing hotel rooms and commuting.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
