We have arranged a special room rate at the Resort
of $149 per night for members. Our block of rooms is limited so
it is important that you make your reservations as soon as possible.
The easiest way to make your reservation is to go to usmex.org and
follow the links. If you are computer challenged you can make the
reservation by calling the resort direct at 480 948-7750. Be sure
to mention our group code of USM. A number of members intend to
make this a vacation trip and are staying in the area longer than
the convention. I have made arrangements with the hotel to extend
the special rates from October 29 to November 6.
A limited number of bourse tables are available
at $475 each. If you are interested in a table, contact me immediately.
Admission to the convention will be free to members, $10 to nonmembers
and free to family members and kids under 15.
Initial response from members has been very positive.
We expect to see collectors at the convention who rarely attend
coin shows. Many of the members are looking forward to visiting
with friends they have not seen in years.
The weather in Scottsdale is excellent this time
of year, with lots of activities, shopping and restaurants in the
immediate area. The hotel provides a free shuttle to Scottsdale
Fashion Square and local restaurants. In my next letter I will include
information and recommendations about a number of the superb local
restaurants and activities.
This has been a time consuming project and I want
to thank the members who have assisted. A special thanks to Mike
Dunigan for his enthusiastic support of the convention and his help
in organizing it. Also, to Jerry Fuller for his assistance in organizing
advertising and press releases for the Convention. We are going
to need a lot more assistance at the convention itself. Call if
you want to help.
