Update 3/8 2007
Here's the Hotel Information for the Prop Party:
Howard Johnson Aurora
15520 Yonge Street
Aurora, Ontario L4G 1P2

All rooms reserved for the Prop Party on May 19th MUST use a password to get the discounted room rate of $99.00 Per Night. Room Rates do not include taxes.
The Password for the discount is UNIV. When you book your room use this password.
The cut off date for room reservations to qualify for the discount is April 18th. They are holding 10 rooms for Friday May 18th and 10 rooms for Saturday May 19th. Reserve what you need based on when you're going to arrive and how long you plan to stay.
They will accept more reservations at this discounted rate as long as the rooms are available so I suggest those of you who are sure to attend that you book your rooms fast.
The website for the hotel is www.hojoaurora.com
I had originally said the hotel was in Newmarket but itΒs actually Aurora. No difference on the location itself though.
Anyone who needs to contact me for anything can call at 905 223 5818.
SoΒ thatΒs it!!!!
The rest is up to you fine folks! Hope to see as many of you as possible on the 19th of May!
Some more details...
[b]MAY 19th is the Prop Party Date. I've confirmed the room with the hotel.
I'm leaving the entire morning of the 19th for all those who want to set up and get their tables in order at that time. The Prop Party would officially start at 1:00PM. Of course, some will be setting up even later on in the day and that's totally fine too. Those who can do it earlier, no problem. Need to do it later....no problem either. I will be posting the hotel details for anyone needing a room in the next few days. When booking your rooms you'll have a password for the room discount too. More info to come, but the date is set!
I'm grateful for the people who've been responding to this thread and you guys are the reason I've decided to give this a shot this year!!!!
More info to come!
I'd also really like to get an idea of how many people would be attending...if you think you'd like to make it but are unsure, please say so. If you're sure you'll be coming, again...just say so.
Also those of you who'd be setting up displays can you chime in and say so? That way I can start to get an idea of how many tables we'll need.
Lastly, there's an area on the floor that has tiles so IF any of you RD guys are bringing one down...there's a fair sized area for him to roll around on. The rest of the area is carpet.
Washrooms are around the corner....we'll have ice water set up on a separate table..and for now that's it I suppose.
Please speak up for the date...and if you'd be attending.
What if we host a Prop Party here in Toronto sometime this spring or summer?
Would there be any interest?
I'm sure we can find a suitable location for it, proper sleeping accomidations for those who'd need them...and basically have a grand ole' time here in Toronto.
So...any possible interest, aye?
If so, we'll figure out all the details and get the ball rolling.
