Hey Guys! Look at this! My friend Mark Terborg gave you ten more reasons why you should attend the 2013 HSS meetup!   http://www.recordedtvhd.com/forum/#nabble-td5708159

Just got the "homeserver" rate of $99 plus tax for king bed room.  Told them didn't need the two queen beds, no kids no spouse that weekend!

My plans to come to the meet up had it a road block when I was diagnosed with cancer in June.  However, today I received great news that it has not spread to the lymph nodes and therefore, not spread.

It's now the Holiday Inn Express http://www.ihg.com/holidayinnexpress/hotels/us/en/fishers/indfi/hoteldetail?cm_mmc=mdpr-_-GoogleMaps-_-in-_-indfi

 

Looks like rooms are $129 with no special discounts for the dates we are looking at.

 

 

Last year I stayed at the Indigo (Now the Holiday Inn Express) because the Meet-up was there and the Group rates were actually better than anything else available (short of cashing in points).  When the Meet-up Hotel is decided on, if you're bring gear, I'd suggest being sure to reserve a room on the ground floor -- or the floor the meeting rooms are on -- it'll make it easier to haul your gear to the meeting room(s)  -- I'm sure I'll be hauling gear over this year too.

 

I'm not going to reserve a room till the specific facility has been announced.

I think I'm going to hold off on getting a room until we hear from Dave on a location. It was really convenient staying at the same place the meetup was held.

Guys..as of 4/30 we have not finalized on a location and may not for some time.  Dave is still looking into the venue based on the number who are attending.  Hang tight with us as we plan this out.

Some people like to be prepared.......and can't face the uncertainty of not having a place to stay.  I am ok with the uncertainty as I could always sleep in my car in the parking lot of a Walmart (they allow overnight camping).

Heh!

If business doesn't pick up at work , I might only be able to afford sleeping in my car in Walmart's parking lot.

Hey Dave and Jim, 

 

Nice follow up on the current podcast about the meetup. I am looking forward to meeting everyone that is going, hanging, and learning. Also thanks for the plug about my post looking for someone to drive with the the meet.

      This is a video of the unboxing of the HPE ProLiant ML1100 Gen10 at the RESET Meetup #Indy2017 on September 30, 2017.  More to follow in the Forums in the future.

      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!
