HSS Meetup 2013 - Sept 21st - Indy

Recommended Posts

I have been looking for recommendations for a place to stay for the meetup. I will look into the Conrad downtown Indy. Is anyone else that is going to the meetup planning on staying here?

 

Any other suggestions for a place to stay?

The Conrad is a 5 star hotel (I believe) and is going to be a little steep on price.  If price doesn't matter to you then I am sure it is very nice.  There are also some nice places to eat downtown.  I have eaten at http://www.stelmos.com/ a few times when I used to attend Formula 1 races at IMS.

 

As JMWills mentioned we will likely not be downtown but the location is still not decided.

 

This is the place we used last year: Hotel Indigo, 9791 North by Northeast Blvd, Fishers, IN 46037.

 

There are other places in the same general area and it's a nice area of town.

I just sent Dave a email for suggestions. I am looking forward to the event and meeting people from the podcast and forum. So far who is going to the event (other than me)?

the AAA rate was 199 when I booked last week. Also for those who use hilton honors point the Conrad is part of that family of hotels.

$199 is too rich for my blood. I'm Pooooor. =)

But I will be there.

I stayed at the Hotel Indigo last year. It was very nice.

I, too, was thinking $199 was a tad on the high side. BTW, are all the rooms at the Indigo purple? :D

      Meetup 2017 Registration - $20 This fee guarantees you a spot at Meetup 17 as well as breakfast and lunch. You may have heard the story but one year I didn't charge a small fee and a ton of people showed up for the free food and a ton of others cancelled! So I had way too much leftover BBQ! This is a PayPal transaction. If you would like something different please PM me.  Use this link - PayPal $20
       
      Also, if you are a Patron, https://patreon.com/davidmccabe, at the $5 or higher level, you have a ticket to Meetup 17. You do need to RSVP though. Please use a PM here, email, Patreon PM, etc. Patrons are also invited to a RESET HQ Tour on Friday night. Come on all, sign up as Patrons!!! I purchase food based on your RSVP's and PayPal reservations! Sometimes folks can't make it after reserving, that is fine. The earlier you can reserve your spot the better!
       
      Also, use this thread to secure transportation with each other. If you are flying in, let us know your details and maybe you can hitch a ride with someone. If you want to carpool, drop your location here and maybe someone else close to you can share a ride and some gas. You never know!
       
      I'm currently speaking with area hotels. I'm trying to secure a group rate at the closest, Hyatt Place. There are several events happening this weekend and they seem to be fairly booked but I'll let you know for sure. Lastly, RESET stickers for all! That's why you're coming right? 
       
      If you are new to Meetup I can tell you it is a great time. We have equipment demos and a lot of folks bring their servers, media gear, etc. There is always something new and ALWAYS something to talk about. Remember Meetup 16? I dropped a bombshell on everyone and published the final episode of HSS Podcast and launched RESET Podcast. All in about 30 minutes! I was super emotional during that and it was totally unplanned! Did anyone film that? You never know what surprises I have in store for you!
       
      Most folks try to arrive Friday prior to Meetup. We try to meet at the local Fry's and then go out to eat. Saturday is Meetup and then we converge on the Microsoft Store right after. Usually, 6 PM. Saturday night we try to go out to the local Irish Pub for some fish and chips and then disperse. Sunday morning a group of use meet at a, not so local, Waffle House for some breakfast. (love this part!)
      My area is exploding in growth so you might want to bring your family to shop and explore the area. They are also invited to have lunch at Meetup. If you want to do that let me know and I can arrange that with you. I've found that most spouses don't want to stick around as the geekery tends to get very thick and unbearable for them. Ha ha ha!

      I mentioned it on the show last week but now it is official. I will be in the Kansas City Microsoft Store, Saturday afternoon, December 1st. I have two presentations to do on Windows 8 and SkyDrive. One at Noon and the other at 3pm. Also going to podcast live from the store at 5pm and working on some interviews with the store manager. If you are in the area and can join me, let me know here. We will do a mini meetup early or late depending on who can show up. Maybe I can even get Microsoft to come up with a few giveaways?

      I would like to gauge interest in a 2012 meetup. I envision it to be on a Saturday in mid October and located somewhere in the Indianapolis Indiana area. Please let me know in a reply if you:
       
      RSVP no matter what the date.
      Tentative
      Can't make it this year.
       
      This will help me decide on a location and what vendor support I'll need. Hit me with questions if you have them. Thanks!
       
      UPDATED: The 2nd Annual Meetup will be held on October, 20th, in a location TBD. 95% sure it will be the North Indianapolis area. Page 2 of this post is where RSVPs start. Pleast RSVP if you know you will attend. Thank you!
