BGG.CON 2006 - Airport Transportation - FINAL

Short Version: To share a taxi, send me a message exactly as shown:
Name------------- bggid----- Airline---- #### LastCity Thurs 11/9 at __:__ pm CellPhoneNumb DepartTime

Long Version:
Hello All! And welcome to BGG.CON 2006! It is time for fun! But wait! You're stuck at the airport?? That's not good. You need to come on down to the con! meeple

You need the DFW Airport/Hotel Transportation Coordinator: Sterling Babcock

There are a number of ways to get from the Airport to the hotel for the convention. The cheapest, quickest, and most direct way is to share taxi cabs.

Known Options: (Investigated in 2005.)
* Bus - Slow, connections, difficult

* Super Shuttle - About $25 or so, multiple stops, may have to wait.
SuperShuttle, DFW: 817-329-2000, Toll Free: 800-BLUE VAN (258-3826), Office 972-615-2410
http://www.supershuttle.com/htm/cities/dfw.htm

* Single person Taxi - About $50 or so.

* Group Taxi - Shared expense, faster, but must wait for group to arrive. This is what I am offering to help with. We need groups of 3-4 to make it reasonable. Please bring some cash to contribute (Say 20-25 with some change.)

The terminals are very separated. Each group will meet in one of the central terminals by using the internal airport shuttle to meet. The terminals are:

http://www.dfwairport.com/terminals/

A: American Airlines

B: American Eagle, United Airlines

C: American Airlines

D: Air Canada, American Airlines, American Eagle, British Airways, Korean Air, Lufthansa, Mexicana, Sun Country, TACA

E: AirTran Airways, Alaska Airlines, America West, ATA, Continental Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Frontier Airlines, Mesa Airlines, Midwest Airlines, Northwest Airlines, Spirit Airlines, US Airways

L: Dallas Love Field (Used in the notation in my list)

OK, so you want to share that taxi ride, right? But how do you know who is arriving when? How do you get hold of them?

Should you wish to get together as a group in order to share a taxi, post here or send me a message (so you don't have to post your cell phone number) and I will gather up groups to go to the hotel together. PLEASE make my life easy and try to work within the established single line per person format here! Send me: your BGG ID, Name, Airline/Terminal, Last connection city, Flight number, Date/Time, Cell Phone number as follows:

Name------------- bggid----- Airline---- #### LastCity Thurs 11/9 at __:__ pm CellPhoneNumb DepartTime

That information (including your cell phone number) will be passed onto your group so that you all can get in contact easily. Info will be posted here without cell phone numbers.

I will keep the following table up to date. I have cut out the cell phone numbers and will provide to the people in the group at the last minute when the groups have solidified. Groups are not fixed until a few days before the con. I will DELETE your post once I have the information from it. I will set meeting places/times based on the images of the gates arbitrarily. If you are amoung a group and wish to propose a meeting place for your group, let me know. If you have a * by your name, I have nominated you to coordinate with your group. Please look for people, perhaps call them to see if they are coming or have other plans. I recommend you call people to confirm a meeting location.

For the return flights, there will be a signup sheet by time at the hotel. This is only for arrivals.

Questions and Answers:

Kim Beattie: Will there be any kind of get-together or other unofficial events on Wednesday, November 8th?
Yes: Meet by the ice rink about 7 pm.

Scott and Suzy Krutsch: Sterling, thanks again for all your hard work! (We're satisfied repeat customers.)
Ans: Woo hoo! It is always nice to know I am appreciated!!

Group Matchups (In Progress)

NOTE: I need the airline to match you all up by location!! Also the flight, Last leg city and Cell number so people can find you! Missing info: sandysidamo,theaney

For All: Group assignments are flexible until the last minute. I have called American and gotten your preliminary terminals and gates. They may change.

Up to date as of 10/30/06. Finalizing groups. I will be sending out lists with Cell Phone numbers probably Mon Nov 6 or Tues Nov 7.

fit in the truck, but that assumes luggage in the bed. With rain, perhaps 2 passengers.)
