    Might make some money if you rent us a bus instead of a car. Looks like many are doing the SPG Hop :)

    For those who have ressies at the Westin, you might want to double check the rate for thursday. I was able to rebook a week ago for $89 AAA breakfast rate. So free breakfast and my 500 amenity points for the cheapest rate. I need my morning fuel in order to learn at FTU :)

    I'm staying at the Westin and snagged a BRG for ~$75. I'll have a car and am willing to shuttle a few folks back and forth.

    The program is now POSTED. It still has some tweaking but at least you'll have an idea of the various tracks/choices throughout the two days.

    Looks great! Some tough decisions will have to be made on which programs to attend.

    Although there will always be some overlap from event to event, it looks like there are some new names on the board, and some new topics! Looks like it will be an awesome weekend!

    Question for those that know the DC area. We will arrive Thursday at IAD around 3:45pm. I am thinking of staying that night in either the Arlington area or downtown so that its easy to get to the game that evening, and go sight seeing Friday morning/afternoon before heading to the Hilton. I know it'll be rush hour; but willl traffic be easier going into downtown direction from IAD while most will be going out from after work??

    Further; we'll have a rental car; so after I choose a hotel Thurs night; if someone needs a lift from IAD to that area (and to the Hilton Friday) I can probably accomodate. Of course I'll post when the hotel is decided and offer up again.

    Thank you
    Damon

    The ride shouldn't be too bad until you hit the Capitol Beltway, after that it's usually jammed. Sadly there isn't a full reverse rush hour in DC. Everyone is going in and out of the city at the same time. So it will most likely take you an hour or more.

    You will need to have riders - otherwise you can't use Route 66 to get to Tysons. 66 is HOV-2 only during rush outbound. Head out before 2pm.

    This FTU has an amazing program, the hard part is having to choose between some great sessions. I feel like I may be missing out on stuff... Maybe FTU needs to be one day longer, so that all of us can enjoy all sessions? ;)

    Some more rooms at the Hilton opened up, I was able to snag one. Also FYI the HGI a few miles down the road has rooms for the same price and a free shuttle if needed.

    Looking forward to my first FTU and meeting people with the same interest!
