    heh...thank you! I'm going to cancel and re-book....although I only need for the 4th and it's coming up $119 - still saves me $$$. I think I'll nominate you the forum's travel agent :)

    Yep I just talked to the hotel and there are limited rooms on the internet for that price even though they guaranteed me "the lowest possible price". They also CHANGED the reservation phone number for our group (aren't hotels wonderful!)........please call the hotel directly at 718 855-9600 to receive the Manhattan DanceSport Rate.

    So, any DF gatherings planned for Manhattan? Or is it still too early to decide?

    It seems that the most well intentioned DF gatherings always seem to fade away. Mostly just remembering who is going and then being on the lookout in the ballroom or bar for them is best. Random meetings seem to be the most fun and surprising anyway...

    Well, I'm going to be in the City for a whole week...I've got some individual get-togethers planned but I always love to meet people. How much I'm willing to do on Friday night depends on when I'm dancing on Saturday daytime, though.

    I'll be there Sat and Sun night and probably Fri night too. Might also check out the Pro/Am Standard on Sat afternoon.

    can't agree more!!! Random meeting is such fun and surprising!!! Still excited meeting Samina, chachaMama, Mamboqueen & Cheryl D at Yankee without formal arrangement;)

    I'll be dancing Sat night and come to ballroom watch Sunday night Pro event at Manhattan;) hope to see some DFers around and say hi;)

    I cannot wait to see this!!! Sorry Samina, but I'm gonna be cheering for Laura, we've survived working at a major competition together and still seem to want to hang around each other, so she gets most of my cheers (shhh....don't tell Laura, but there might be one or two in there for you too!)

    I'll be there Friday night, Saturday day and Saturday night. I'm looking forward to watching everyone compete!

    So far we have about 7,500 entries and I am still receiving way too many entry forms by fax to post a schedule yet. I will spend tomorrow and Thursday inputing as many entries as I can and then the time schedule will be finalized and ready for the printer on Friday morning. The schedule should be available on our website www.manhattandancesport.com by Friday around noon.
