It would be neat to have a WarpStock in/near Atlantic City New Jersey. There is an airport there plus things to do and see in AC. Are there any other OS/2-eCS users in New Jersey? Idea

There are indeed users at least close by. AC is certainly a thought, but I don't know about hotel costs there (while we had a summer house only a few miles away when I was growing up, my last real trip to AC back in the mid-80's was only a day trip, so I haven't had the occasion to stay there since the casinos came to town).

Tom, if you have the ability to investigate this, please feel free to assemble a team and put in a bid for 2007.

I will get lots of informaton from the hotels in Atlantic City, NJ. I do not know about the getting a group together since I am not familiar with anyone in the area that uses OS/2 or eCS. Cool

It (assembling a team) can be done without having someone in that particular area (we did it with Hershey last year). I would perhaps make some inquiries in the usual places (here, Warpstock-public, OS2World, eComStation forums, etc.), and then put together a few people who you believe would be reliable and capable of handling the tasks involved in putting on an event. Make some hotel inquiries, and compile a projection of costs vs registration revenue, and prepare a bid for the Board to consider.

I'd be interested to see how the cost of flights there compares to other airports on the East Coast.

Thank would make for an interesting comparison.

I wonder if the hotel rates would be lower since there are casinos there too. Cool
