GELSSA Quarterly Meeting
February 1, 2014 @
St. Simons, GA.
It's that time again! Time to start making plans to join us for our first
quarter meeting in St. Simons. It's a great time to socialize and
also get caught up on important information pertaining to our industry.
Make Your Reservations NOW To Get The Best Price
The 2014 meeting will be held on Saturday, February 1, at the beautiful King and Prince Resort. I have been able to negotiate a fantastic rate of
$109 per night.......for courtyard AND ocean view rooms !! The cut off date to receive this guaranteed rate is December 21 so make your reservations early.
After December 21 you should still be able to reserve a room, but the special group rate is not guaranteed.
The Resort is in the process of a 7+ million dollar renovation. The pool and deck areas have been completed. The next phase is the Lobby, Atrium, Restaurant and Bar. While the entire renovation may not be complete at the time of our meeting, the remainder of the renovations should not affect our stay, although you may see some construction.
For all you golfers, The King and Prince has given us a discounted rate of $69 per person which includes golf cart rental so bring your clubs!!!

As always, I will be arranging a group dinner for Friday evening before the meeting on Saturday. The exact location hasn't been chosen yet but I will let you know as soon as possible.
If you've ever been to St. Simons then I'm sure you're familiar with Ziggys. Ziggy,s is an island favorite, famous for good music, dancing and lots of socializing. It's a great time to sit back, relax, get to know new friends and reconnect with old ones (not that any of us are old!) If you'll be staying Saturday night, then you'll want to make plans to join us.
Now here's the part where I ask for your help.
I cannot make the proper arrangements without knowing how many to plan for.
When replying, I need an RSVP for THREE events.
1) The Friday night dinner. I need to know if you will be attending and the TOTAL number of people in your party. Names would be extremely helpful.
2) The GELSSA meeting. Will you be attending?
3) The lunch buffet at the end of the meeting. Will you be staying for lunch and how many guests will be joining you. Once again names would be very helpful.
Thank you for your help andI look forward to seeing you there!!
