2005 National Storm Chaser Convention

Here we go folks, things are rolling to bring you the next edition of the National Storm Chaser Convention. Roger Hill has assembled a tremendous lineup of speakers for the convention in 2005 once again to rival the lineup we had last year. Tim Vasquez will once again be holding his famous forecasting class as well! Video night is looking VERY promising and there is even going to be a video contest!

You can get all the info on the convention website right here:

We are there for this one - all the way from england as well for the weekend :D

I look forward to meeting some of you there - please say hello.
 
Highly recommended. David Drummond, Tim Samaras, and Roger Hill are truly the gurus of weather conferences and put on a great show in 2003 and 2004. Looking forward to another great time up there.

P.S. Avoid the Wendy's near the hotel! I got food poisoning there Sunday evening last year. Since it was the only thing I had all day, there's no question where it came from.
 
Mentioning food near the convention, last year we ate lunch on Saturday at a little tex-mex type place just across the street from the hotel and it was great!

BTW, if you can do it at all, stay in the hotel there....that place is really nice and absolutely HUGE with an indoor waterfall, indoor pool, hottub and you never have to leave the hotel unless you just want to!
 
Unfortunately not Chris, unless you count the fact that your local and won't have to spring for a room like most people. :wink:
 
I was wondering if there is any way we can coordinate room-sharing to save on costs at the hotel. Is this an ok place to post to look for a roommate?

If so, I'm interested in going and seeing if there is anyone that would be willing to share a room with me to cut down on costs? I be a poor student teacher next semester...

EDIT: I've reserved a room with two double beds - let me know if you're interested. Please no women (my fiance would kill me). We would just split the cost for the room.
 
I am planning a message board for the convention site, but I might not have it up for a week or two. I am sure this thread will suffice if Tim doesn't mind.
 
Already got a room reserved for Kanani and Myself. If you reserve now the prices are cheaper than waiting until the last minute (if any rooms are left by then) and you can get any type of room for the same price (king, queen, 2 doubles etc..)

My girlfriend and I will definitely be going!! This will be our first time attending this event so I am very excited!!
 
Gayla is getting pretty good at building them websites....

I would like to go.. Im hoping the planets will align...
 
Now that I've found the correct thread, I can correctly channel my enthusiasm that I'm able to attend. I can't wait to meet everyone there.

For those that have been before... is there anything in particular I should bring?
 
Well, my grandpa and I are going. We got a room at the hotel and are buying our plane tickets pretty soon :D I can't wait to meet and see people at the convention. I'd like to have a few DVDs made by then so I can sell them. Contents of my chase DVD

As I understand, the block of rooms that were reserved for the convention at the Holiday Inn where the convention is being held are to be released to the general public on January 18th. So if you intend to stay at the same hotel as the convention, and want to be guaranteed getting a room, you might want to make your reservations by then.
 
Another airline fare war is on, I have been hearing. Interestingly, my flight to Denver came in as $40 less than the same flight/same airline as last year. I'm looking forward to hearing this year's awesome presentations, and every one of them is excellent.
 
My car which has not had any major problems in 4 years died a few days ago so now I have to buy a new chase vehicle and won't be able to attend the National Storm Chaser Convention :(
 
After you register for the convention are you supposed to get a confirmation e-mail from Roger Hill? I got a receipt from paypal saying that I paid. However, I never got a confirmation e-mail from Roger Hill. (I registered in late Dec.) That would be really bad if I got to Denver and found out that I was not even registered. :shock: Thanks.

I think Roger is out of town at the moment, but you should be able to email him and confirm that you are registered. He has the list is the reason I can't tell you. I am sure everything is fine, I know he was keeping a list of the registrants in a database. You won't be turned away if you paid certainly.

AFAIK there has never been a situation in the past where anyone registered and was forgotten. :wink:

Not to jump on the bandwagon, but I am in it as well. I never got the confirmation email and I did sign up in mid december (got paypal notification). Hate to clog the thread up with this...if you have a better alternative, let me know.
