Default Lodging at Saratoga Springs Showcase

I was able to arrange a special rate for scrollers at the Springs Motel at 189 Broadway in Saratoga Springs, NY for $65/night during the show at the end of March/beginning of April. For details on this woodworking show check the earlier post by JackM. Gail and Carl are the owners of this small, older, very clean motel that gets good reviews. Check it out on TripAdvisor. The phone number of the motel is 518-584-6336. Ask for the Scrollers Group rate.
Several people have suggested an informal get-acquainted gathering prior to the show so we all could meet. It appears that the best time for this would be on the Friday night prior to the show. If there is interest, a time and place will be announced at a later date. Happy New Year!!! Dick

PS: The Meet and Greet has been scheduled at the Dunkin Donuts, 207 Broadway for 8 pm on Friday, March 30. Come share good coffee, donuts, and conversation about scrolling. All are welcome.
For a list of those staying at the Springs Motel check out the post by Dragon in Upcoming Events titled Saratoga Springs 2012

Just made my reservation, Dick. We'll be coming up on Friday, and staying until Sunday. They could not have been more pleasant on the phone, and the rooms have a refrigerator and a coffee maker. Let's hope we can get a group together!

Sounds great, Carole. We're looking forward to meeting you and all the other friendly folks in this group. One other nice thing about the owners of this motel is that if you use a credit card to make your reservations, they do not put a "hold" on your card or process the transaction until you check out, unlike so many of the big chains. Also, they only require a 24 hour notice for cancellation if your plans should change. Hence, make your reservations now so you will have them.

Wish I could make it but we will either be just getting back from Texas or in Texas that week-end visiting the grandkids. Would be nice if you guys would head south to the Baltimore Woodworking Show in Jan of next year. Hint Hint

Default Scroller Get-Acquainted Meeting

I spoke to the Manager of the nearby Dunkin Donut and he said he would welcome us to meet on Friday, March 30 at 8 pm for great coffee, donuts, and conversation about scrolling. It would be fine for us to bring some snacks also. Mary and I plan to do that. The address of this Dunkin Donuts is 207 South Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY. ALL ARE WELCOME!!! Dick
