    PRR Hotel Reservations link almost ready to book rooms

    DeLorean Owners, Fans and Enthusiasts,

    The custom link for DCS 2018 Hotel Reservations is just about ready to go.
    We have had DMC Club members testing the PRR hotel's custom interface for
    the DCS 2018 discounted rates, and other than a few clarifications with some
    text on the room booking buttons, we are almost ready for room bookings.

    For those who attended DCS 2016, you will get First Priority to book rooms, as
    a link will be emailed to DCS 2016 attendees first, then it will be posted here.

    If the interface button text is not updated soon by PRR Tech Support staff, we
    will send out the link with some clarification text, to keep this process going.

    Once passed the initial clarifications, the registration process functions properly
    and our DMC Club members have successfully booked rooms without problems.

    More details to follow.

    Thanks,
    Rich W. [for the DCS 2018 Planning Team]

    Thanks, Rich.

    Anybody going eastbound on I-80 and want to caravan? I want to try and make it in time for the tech day on Wed but I might have to call in sick on Mon and/or Sun. I'd prefer to leave Sat night or Sun b/c while the car might be good for two 700-mile days in a row, I doubt I will be...

    Tentative update on this topic ...

    Although the lowest discounted rate rooms ($99/night) are tentatively slated for possible refurbishing
    this Winter and Spring, there is no guarantee at this time. However, some DeLorean owners may like
    the option of parking their DeLoreans right next to their rooms, especially before cars are moved into
    the Mega Center on late Thursday or early Friday, or if you decide not to park your DeLorean indoors.

    So, depending on the refurbishing schedule, the $99/night "Golf Rooms" may be a win-win for some
    DeLorean owners, offering both lower cost and a close view of your car, right from the room window.
    All the Golf Rooms are ground level rooms and only a few steps to the parking spaces near the rooms.
    The Golf Rooms are also only a few steps away from the Golf Course, hence the name of the rooms.

    For those of you who have long drives planned, this is why we have shoulder days, before and after the DCS Event,
    however, keep in mind there is a 48 hour cancellation policy for all registered rooms at the Pheasant Run Resort.

    MailChimp for some of the DCS Email Blasts

    FYI - looks like we will be using MailChimp for some of the DCS email blasts,
    so if your email filter is setup to screen out MailChimp emails, you may need
    to check your Spam folder or Junk Mail folder for the emails that will be sent
    regarding the advance notice links, emailed to folks who attended DCS 2016.

    Hotel Registration is now Open for DCS 2018

    Hotel Registration is now open for DCS 2018 at the Mega Center at Pheasant Run Resort.

    The DCS 2018 Discounted Room Rates are as follows:

    Golf Rooms $99/night (may be renovated by Summer 2018.)
    Tower Rooms $119/night (renovated in Winter/Spring 2017)
    Loft Suites $189/night (recent renovation, but also less use)

    Also available at reduced rates (detailed on the hotel registration website):
    Whirlpool Suites, Executive Suites, Family Suites and Tower Penthouse Suites.

    Please note the PRR Hotel Registration website is a little "clunky" and we continue working
    with the PRR Tech Staff to better clarify the button functions on the custom DCS 2018 link.

    The opening page of the custom DCS 2018 Registration link lists all of the available days for
    Discounted Rates (Monday, August 13 through Monday, August 20, 2018.), for those who will
    want to book "shoulder days" on either side of DCS, in addition to the DCS 2018 Event dates.

    Note: All these dates do not get pre-populated (as the default) in the Registration link page.

    The DCS 2018 Event Dates are Wednesday, August 15 through Sunday, August 19, 2018.

    The DeLorean Car Show event itself is easy to remember, since it is on Saturday 08/18/18.

    Until (or if) the Hotel Registration website link is updated for better clarity, please use the
    following recommendations to get through the Registration process.

    When you go to register, Do NOT Close the text that says "Please Join us for the DeLorean
    Convention and Show". That will clear the Event Discount Code from the registration process.

    The "Complete Registration" button should be displayed as a "Start Registration" button, but it
    does function as a Start button, with the range of dates "highlighted" but not yet selected, and
    the Discount Code for DCS 2018 is pre-populated correctly. At this point, the rest of the Hotel
    Registration process seems to function properly and does not need any further clarification.

    DCS 2018 PRR Hotel Registration link:

    https://reservations.travelclick.com...roupID=2089017

    DCS 2018 Event Registration should be available by sometime during January 2018.
    DCS 2018 Dinners (with Keynote Speakers) will be on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

    More details to follow.

    Thanks,
    Rich W.
