Who is coming to Dallas this summer?

The Third Annual OLGANON WORLD SERVICES, Inc Board meeting & Convention is going to be held in Dallas, Texas, US, on July 17 through 19, 2009. Those responsible for doing so, need to attain an accurate estimate of those intending to attend, and who will be staying at the hotel where the Convention will be held. This would be to ensure that a good booking rate could be assumed. The Annual Board meeting would likely be held on Sunday morning, the 19th, and would most likely be adjourned by noon, or thereabouts, to give notification to those traveling to and from Dallas. [color=red]Please make your plans now, for Dallas this summer by posting your intent on booking one of the rooms to be reserved for our convention. This information would be vital to choosing a site and facilities.[/color]

I suspect we'll have face to face, separate OLGA and OLG-Anon meetings on Friday night, but nothing's carved in stone yet.

Er, I booked the plane ticket already, that's how we know the date! Now, about that steak dinner on Saturday night... what's the best steak restaurant in Dallas/Fort Worth? There have to be some great contenders! :D

I put it on my calendar, but room rates are a problem. I hope that we can get some that are less than $100/night. I'll make plane reservations soon.

I'll be there in spirit, but I seriously doubt I can get the money together in time. I'll have a hard time even getting a summer job. :(

I'm working on it, anyone want to carpool? I'll be driving from Wisconsin, so I'll hit Illinois, Missouri and Oklahoma for sure, and I think I'll go through the south-eastern corner of Kansas...

Sadly, I'm not able to attend, but I might donate a small sum using the paypal link to offset expenses that will be incurred by the host. I'm just so grateful you guys are here.
