    Sorry, very little luck finding deals the last couple times I have looked but I will let you know if I do.
    I thought the SF was OK. Far cry from the Athen's hotel but OK.
    Thank you,

    I like the location. It does lack the free breakfast but, heck, we are going to cook breakfast anyway.

    I'll talk to Southfork this week and see if I can get the Eggheads a better rate. The banner will be up very soon. :) The wheels are turning in Plano.

    Steve, I know you have told me where the fest is going to held, but my tertiary Alzheimer has kicked in and i forgot.
    Is there a Marriott or Hilton chain hotel near the area? What is Southfork Hotel like?
    Thanks

    Hi Joan,

    Check it out...

    It's not a chain and we like it because of its uniqueness and association with J. R. Ewing saga. It's right next door to Twin Peaks where we meet up for drinks before the Meet and Greet too. See Steve's note about getting us a better rate soon.

    Glad you are coming. It's really a fun fest.

    Great. Just so you know, their website shows $89 for a double and Travelocity has it for $79. Last year Photo Egg got us rooms through Travelocity for $54 so the rate can be cut if they want to.

    See ya sooner than you think!!!!

    You're right, Jerry. Looks like they have a nice prep area too. It's something to think about....

    Don't make a big deal out of it because I think we prefer the Homewood Suites now. Sorry if this is causing you any inconvenience....stay in bed.

    Judy, this place is closer to the Homewood Suites. Half-way between the hotel and the Fest site. It's a very nice place! Leroy would love it. ;)
