    I booked my flights Sunday night. I'll be there the 15th thru the 19th (red-eye home Sat night). Looking forward to seeing everybody from both groups getting together.

    Just curious...is this just an LAX trip? Was wondering if anyone else is interested in checking out Van Nuys for a short time.

    Sheraton Gateway is a nice hotel, stayed there twice, but stayed at almost every other hotel by the airport too.

    Van Nuys is cool. might be up to going there for a few hours.
    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do

    It may be finalized today, but they are likely to be the "official" hotel for the event, offering us a $110/night discount, and considering how awesome I think that hotel is, that's a sick deal.

    We are likely to have a sponsored brunch or happy hour, probably at that hotel as well.

    John, the Embassy I stayed at was on the North Side. The South Side Embassy Suites is near Imperial Hilll. Van Nuys is cool too. I stayed at the Airport Hotel there which has a huge Pan Am 747 model hanging from the ceiling. May consider going there to with you guys.

    I would seriously consider joining in a side trip to VNY. It is after all where One Six Right was filmed, probably the greatest GA film of all times.

    I am not sure if you guys are following the Facebook event page. But I have been talking with the owners of Star Helicopters to see about getting a discount. Well I was able to secure a discount, but it have some stipulations. How many of you guys would be interested in doing the tour? I am all sure you have seen and heard or the company that has worked out a deal with LAX. The normal price is 550.00 per hour, they have offered a discount to 525.00 which would be $175.00 per person. I just need a head count of how many of you would be interested in doing this.

    BTW I have stayed at the Gateway. We will be staying there again. Get a room and share with a buddy, its only 60.00 a night. Although we like to edit photos before hitting the bed. It always makes me laugh seeing 8-10 laptops up and running, seeing everyone charge their cameras. A total AVGEEK fest.
