I'm sharing this email, to REMIND all of you to take the time TODAY to make
your hotel reservations. I'd hate for people like this to finally be able
to make it to the conference and then be locked out of the conference hotel.
And, I had a very bad scare this morning. Someone called to tell me the
hotel was full and to ask me about overflow space. Auuugh. It turns out the
hotel was NOT full (I can breathe again), but the hotel hadn't put more
rooms into our black this morning - they sell out 75 rooms in our block and
then put more in it till they sell our full allotment. In discussing this
with the hotel reservation department, I discovered that there are other big
conferences in Dallas over our dates, and because anyone can call and say
they're with the Smart Marriages conference and get a room in our block (our
rooms aren't passcode protected) AND because we have the lowest rates in the
city over those dates at a really wonderful hotel, our room block could be
stolen away from us - caller by caller. And, we are getting close to
selling out ...and, once it's gone, it's gone.
And, since all the conference events are in the hotel and it's so convenient
to stay in the mother ship and be right there -- and since we've got these
fantastic rates, PLEASE call today. I will not be able to help you once it
is sold out.
Call 800-444-2326 and ask for the Smart Marriages Conference rates of $79
single, $89 double, $92 triple, $95 quad. Rates good June 18 - July 2. Kids
