Moneys & Such


Okay, dudes, here we go. The program is so close I can taste it--still waiting to hear from a few souls, but it's already good and only likely to get better.

But.

Inflation has hit Freedom City, and we're looking at hotels being somewhat more expensive than last time. We'll do everything we can to set up travel pooling and roommates and such, but we did want to get this on your radar. (And if you want roommates with benefits, well, you can sort that out yourselves.)

Also, we're working on a fabulous entertainment event which should trim some of our expenses--news to come.

And I'm starting to move into the registration and money part of the program--we're going to revive the Poor Atriots Fund which was such a godsend last time, and try to figure out how much all this is going to run us. But we'll keep you posted.

Okay, a hint of things to come:

Hotel prices have almost doubled, so keep that in mind.

When I inquired, I was told that Philly has been attracting more tourists. When I asked for rates in the fall of '08 (as a comparison), I was surprised to learn that they would increase by over 75% from Sept. 2005. But it's true, so there you have it.

Well, that pretty much sucks ass.

Oh well, what the hell. Can't be worse than NYC.
