Hello Everyone! I wanted to give you an update as Meeting of the Minds 2017 registration and the Casa Marina MOTM reservations block opened back on December 27 just over two weeks ago!
BE ADVISED!! The CASA MARINA IS SOLD OUT!!!
As I told you when the Casa reservations opened on December 27th…the hotel will sell out very fast!! Well the record has been broken! Less than three weeks! Now what?
The 2017 MOTM Wait List for the Casa Marina – Here are the 3 steps below:
- Register for Meeting of the Minds 2017.
REMEMBER YOU MUST BE REGISTERED FOR MEETING OF THE MINDS 2017 TO STAY AT THE CASA MARINA OR BE ON THE WAIT LIST FOR THE CASA.
- Book your room at the Reach Resort. While our awesome Parrot Head rate is only valid at the Casa Marina the Reach is offering a discount to our group this year. This Reach Resort rate will not be as low as the Casa rate but it is a booking discount. There are some Casa Marina cancellations every year so booking early will put you up the list as we do go in order to move people over as vacancy happens through the year. This can happen right up to the event so give the hotel your cell number not your home number for contact!
Here are the steps!
- Email our MOTM Director of Registration Rick Fyffe at firstname.lastname@example.org
Put in the title of your email “MOTM Casa Marina Wait List.” Tell Rick you are booked at the Reach and registered for MOTM. Rick will add you to the Casa Marina wait list in the order in which you contact him.
We have to fill the Casa Marina so we will work very hard to move everyone we can as cancellations occur. We will be working down the order in which you reply to Rick Fyffe. Sorry for any confusion but it is best to manage this wait list through Rick vs. contacting the hotel.
Here is the special link to the Reach Resort for our group discount – Again this is NOT the same rate as the Casa Marina. Simply copy and paste the URL below into your browser to access the exclusive Reach Resort rates available for Parrot Heads:
