Hello lovely Allume friends!
We wanted to touch base with you to let you know a bit of news surrounding this year’s conference!
You know how sometimes at church (especially on Christmas and Easter), the pastor will ask everyone to slide to the middle to make room for people coming in? Well, we’re kinda having a bit of one of those moments right now with Allume. Don’t freak out, we have some alternatives set up, but if you’re maybe looking to cut down costs or make new friends this year, we’re gonna ask you to slide over to make some room as well….in your bed! 🙂
Unbeknownst to us, US Cycling Team member, George Hincapie, is hosting a big ol cycling shindig in Greenville the same weekend as Allume. And because I’m not a cycling enthusiast, honestly I had no idea that so many people in the world are so enthusiastic about cycling! But let me tell you….there are ALOT of people excited about cycling, and apparently about George too! And, because of this cycling excitement coming to Greenville, lots of enthusiasts are coming as well.
Which means for Allume… that our hotel block is sold out! In fact, our entire hotel is now sold out.
But never fear….we have a rapidly created back-up plan! 2 doors down from the Hyatt (our official conference location) is a very lovely Holiday Inn Express which has opened up a block of rooms for our conference. So if you’re not quite to the point of scooting over in your bed, or asking someone else to scoot over, you can book at the Holiday Inn. I’m gonna be honest and say, there may be more enthusiasts descending on our lovely town, so don’t delay in figuring out where (or who) your’e bunking with for the conference in October!
If you want to find roommates, the pop on over to our Allume Facebook page, or ask around on Twitter using the #Allume hashtag!
To book with the Holiday Inn, use the code “ALL” when making reservations in order to receive the $159 rate and be included in our Allume block. The number for the Holiday Inn Express is 864.678.8000. (**as of 8/2/13, the Holiday Inn is now sold out as well.**)
Can’t wait to see you all in October! And if this hotel fills up too, then know we might really, REALLY, ask you to scoot over and make some room! And if it makes you feel any better, I’ll be snuggling up to Sarah Mae and crossing my fingers that she doesn’t snore! We’re not asking you to do anything that we’re unwilling to do ourselves! And just think of the fast friends you will make!
**So ladies… we’re to that point now. The SOS (Scoot Over Some) moment has arrived! If you already have a room booked and are willing to share (pretty please?!) then please email our fabulous team member, Janelle Miller at QueenOfTheHouseOfBoys @ gmail dot com or tweet her at @jjxrmill to let her know how many extra ladies your room can accomodate. If you’re looking for a room, then please let Janelle know that too so that we can find a room for you. We are working hard to help everyone find a spot, but we need your help. And honestly friends, we need your generosity and your grace. Amongst the number of rooms we blocked, there is PLENTY of room for everyone, but we just need to snuggle up and take Allume from Exciting-Conference to Exciting-Conference-with-Massive-Slumber-Party status!
Looking forward to our time together!
Logan and the Allume Team
