Field Trips -- Wilmington, NC - Sept 30 to Oct 2
 We are finalizing all events and it is time for those who have confirmed they will attend and to those who might still want to consider the trip to take some action: There are a couple of steps you need to complete:
1. Confirm your room reservation directly to the Hotel. To insure you get the room configuration you want you will need to confirm by August 30 or sooner. They will accept reservation now. All the information to accomplish this is on the attached “Comfort Inn University Document”. Our Contact person is Shulinda Hall - Office Manager Please let me know when you have secured a room.
2. We will be pre-paying the fee to the venues we are attending. I will be paying for them and would ask you to forward your payment directly to me. ( Sept 1st) Airlie Garden $ 9.00 PP Aquariums $12.95 pp Sun Set Cruise $22.00 pp Total $43.95 pp
3. I have confirmed a deal for daily travel for Thurs and Friday. We will be making multiple pickups and delivers each day. You can park your car at the hotel and there are no fees for this parking. Basically you will not need your vehicle for any daily travel except for those who want to go to the shore early Friday morning sunrise shots. The cost will be $100 pp. I will need to collect this fee along with the above mentioned fees by Sept 1st .
4. All meals will be handled individually and while we will be going as a group we are not set up in special rooms etc. We have asked to sit in the same area together but small group tables (probably 4- top maybe a few larger). This is social time not meeting time. The two restaurants we have selected are known for good food and reasonable prices.

Hopefully you will all make arrangements to get to Wilmington and the Hotel by 10:00 AM Thursday September 30. I have made two trips to Wilmington this past 9 months and found that it is approximately 2.5 hrs from Southern Pines. I have had one request to go a day early and still get our block room rate at the Hotel I am sure they will work with you on this if you want to come early and or stay longer. You can cover these type questions with them when you call to make your reservation.
