    A big thanks to Jeff Zidell for inviting us to come have a drink with him and his colleagues at Hyatt Mag Mile in Chicago at 6pm on Tuesday, March 18th.

    If you'd like to attend, please leave a comment in this thread stating that. We'll randomly draw 25 winners in the following manner:

    20 winners will be drawn randomly from all members who want to attend and leave a comment below. Each member will receive one entry for posting here, no matter how many times they post.

    5 winners will be drawn randomly from all Milepoint Silver and Gold members who want to attend and leave a comment below.

    You have until 11:59pm MST on Sunday, February 9th to leave a comment here.

    We'll draw the winners randomly from this thread on Monday, February 10th.

    Oh, and do chances increase if we leave multiple comments?

    No, they don't. :)

    We'll draw the winners randomly from anyone who posts here, one entry per person.

    Well then I'm done :) But I do have 300,000 true lifetime GP points (the ones that count toward lifetime status), so some experience with them.

    Go to a UC for that
    Lots of places to do that
    Same for me and I have one in a few days
    Haven't been to one since SMD4, so that's the ticket

    Ha! But this time I would be able to do that without flying half way across the world.

    Do the Silver & Gold members get two entries in the pool (once for the general drawing and then another for the extra 5 spots)?

    Yes, that's our intent. Draw Silver and Gold winners first, exclude those winners from second drawing of everyone else who entered.

    Thanks for clarifying.

    Now, how do I indicate that I only can attend if I win the free trip so that these posts shouldn't count towards the 25 open slots but that they should towards the "extra" entry for the grand prize?? :p

    I was pretty sure that's the category you were in. ;)
    Now we know for sure.

    And, you really don't want to pay to fly to Chicago to hang out with us? We're relatively nice folks.

    "Relatively" is the key word there. ;)

    I'd love to get there but unfortunately I'm not sure my travel budget includes an ORD boondoggle right now. :(

    I've been looking for an excuse to visit Chicago. This would provide a perfect distraction. Plus, it would be great to listen to wiser minds in the room and meet folks in this crazy hobby. Hopefully, I'll have the lucky ticket!

    I am down, hopefully Jeff can get us a good rate on parking as $61/night is a bit high.

    Great to see all of the interest here!

    Looking forward to seeing you in March. It's already starting to warm up a bit in Chicago, so that's a good sign!

    Safe travels,

    The Hayatt Magnetic Mile? Sounds ok, I know somewhere I can park for $10 just a quarter mile from there.

    I drink so much coffee there that I run up lots of rewards on their affinity card.
