It says register by the 12th for the $85 price and today is the 12th, but all I see is $200 and up.......was Sunday the last day for that price and that means by the 12th it will go up? I was thinking I had until Monday to decide :/

It showed $85 yesterday for me, but now it is $100 when you add it to the cart. I was not sure if the "member" price would be lower than $85, so I waited. I hope we didn't miss that special either...

The "special price", will it be for people, like significant others of members as well, or do we need to jump on the $85 special for those people going that are not members?

Now it is $100; how long will that price last? I am not local, so thinking even if I joined I would not be eligible for a membership price.......$100 is still a great deal though!

An official announcement will come later tonight. So, please hold off on buying them the next couple of days.
Members will have a discount and we want to make sure it's implemented correctly before opening it.
Let's just say we were a little busy this past weekend and didn't have a a chance to prepare a post. I have one almost ready, but probably won't get it up until to tonight.
The meeting will cover a ton, and we'll do something special there, but for those of you that can't make it, we'll have lots of details for you.

It depends on which of "you're" kids it is. [smilie=rofl.gif] I'm sure we'll have an under 18 price, but it hasn't been set yet.

I wouldn't bring them both [smilie=devil.gif] It would be the older one who would be 14 then. I will have to make sure he knows he will have to sit thru some presentations.

Marc!

Just heard about this, and wanted to say Thanks and Congrats! As you know, when we hosted MACNA in 2002, the future of the event was quite uncertain. And by uncertain I don't just mean for 2002. Many thought there would never be another MACNA...ever. The previous year had run a serious deficit, losing some $40,000 if I remember correctly. MASNA was basically washing their hands of the event.

For those of you that know Brad Ward, with a little arm twisting he convinced a few of us that this would be possible to do alone at the club level(basically without alot of MASNA interference), and do well. He was right.

MACNA XIV is one of things I'm most happy to have been a part of in my adult life. We had a great group, and accomplished things people said we would never be able to pull off. DFWMAS effectively changed and preserved the course of future MACNA's proving that a local club could in fact organize and the lead the event, and do so successfully and profitably.

I'm excited for ya'll. It will be hard work, and not without it's frustrations, but in the end it will be worth it. Thanks for carrying on the tradition.

All the best,

Duane

Thanks Duane,
We love hearing from members that were around back then. Hopefully, we'll see you, brad, and anyone else that helped with the event at our event. We're also extremely excited about hosting this year, and really can't wait to show our members what Macna has to offer.
