I'm starting this thread to avoid clogging up the official master thread (any further). I'll update first few posts as we have more info about everyone's plans in each city, etc. What we know so far: Cities SMD4 will visit/overnight (LAX, ZRH, SFO, IAH, ORD). Official hotels named: PH Zurich, Hyatt Regency SFO, Hyatt Regency Houston. (According to KOA) Tommy mentioned that there will be special rates at all the official Hyatt properties, including PH Zurich. (According to KOA) Tommy mentioned that hotel booking will occur after SMD booking. Rooms will need to fit wide-brimmed cowboy hats. What we don't know yet: Full set of SMD4 attendees (some might clear off waitlist!) Hyatt's sponsor challenge. Exact properties for official lodging in Chicago.
