Dear Fellow Sons:
The 19th International Sons of the Desert Convention is almost here! If you have not made your room reservations, you need to do so immediately. The discount block of rooms has sold out again and the hotel will not add any more. I have a couple of people who canceled their rooms for one reason or another. If you need rooms, let me know NOW and I will see what I can do. If you currently have rooms reserved, but don’t plan to use them, please call me or the hotel and cancel them ASAP. Also, I still have a person looking for a roommate. If you are interested, contact me now.
Remember, in addition to the all-access pass, single event tickets are available. There are a few seats left for the Wild Goose/Queen Mary trip on July 1st as well as the Habeas Corpus Tour on June 30th. Wednesday, June 11th, is the cutoff date to sign up for all events. Get the order form from the convention website and send it in.
The trip to Culver City on Saturday, July 5th, will include a group photograph of all conventioneers. I am asking everyone to wear the convention T-shirt that day. If you did not purchase one, please wear red for the picture.
I wrote the hotel to get information about transfers to the hotel from LAX and received the following email:
Hello Mr. Satterfield,
There are three methods of transportation from the airport to Loews Hollywood:
1. Private sedan – $128.25 (flat fee) 1 way to/from the hotel
2. Taxi – roughly $75
3. Super Shuttle – $16 (1 way) FROM the airport. No need to make a reservation — Super Shuttles are ready to go at LAX 24 hours a day. To get back to LAX from our hotel, however, you must make a reservation at least a day in advance. If you need to make a Super Shuttle reservation, feel free to stop by our concierge desk and we’ll be happy to arrange that for you.
From Union Station, you can catch the Metro Red Line 802 to Hollywood and Highland and walk to our hotel.
I hope this information was helpful. If you have any further questions/concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
