Hi Birminghamfan,
Welcome to the Pacific NW.
Looking forward to meeting you at
our dinner and concert Where are you staying?
Some of us are staying at the Crowne Plaza as you may have
noticed on this forum. They offer that all important "shuttle".
May come in handy if the weather turns, which seems to be
happening now. :) :)

Good flight over
Cheers!

Hi Elaine! Looking forward to meeting you! Alice & I will be arriving on 12/4, so coordinating from the airport wont work, but a coordinated shuttle to the show sounds great!
We'll be in touch!

Peace, Dee

Hi Steve. Looking forward to meeting a fellow Commonwealther. I updated the dinner meetup list with your real name.

I am booked at the Benson which is close to the Monaco and I will be getting around town by taxi.

See you there.

Hi Jimmy (POZEST)
just went back in postings and noticed that you are arriving on Alaska @12:43
My fight is coming in @12:32 on United. Looks like the timing is perfect for us
to all catch the shuttle on the same trip That's 5 of us that we know of staying
at the Crowne Plaza. Dee and Alice will already be there.
Looking forward to meeting you and your friend Yolanda

So excited about seeing her and Leonard and the Band

I was lucky to be at the O2,Brooklands and Liverpool last year
and didnt think I would be able to have another amazing couple of
hours with this great man and friends.

Will look out for you all,even though Ive never posted

Heres to a magical evening

Hi Everyone
Thanks so much Arlene for organizing this!
Unfortunately as we are meeting some old friends before the concert
in another part of town (Hawthorne)
I will not be able to make the meetup. If time allows will definitely drop by.
Thanks! Looking forward to a great evening.
Cheers

HI Elaine,

Thats great; chances are better we'll get our shuttle. When I called the hotel and asked them about the shuttle, they mentioned the shuttle would "depend on availability".
So with yourself, me, & my GF more less there at the same time for pickup, i/we could make a stronger case for ensuring that the shuttle picks us up on time.

I'll call them the day of the flight (same day as the show right?) to let them know us 3 would be there for pick up a few minutes after 12:30p.m. Anyone else you know of coming in about the same time?

Welcome to the forum. You and your friend would be more than welcomed to meet up with us at the pre-concert dinner at the venue; if you scroll through the topic you'll find the information.

Elaine & Pozest, I just called the hotel to inquire about pick up for tomorrow, and the seemingly very nice young woman said to simply call the hotel, after retrieving our bags, and the shuttle would pick us up. I'll let you know TOMORROW how it works. Can you tell I'm a bit EXCITED?
