  1. Hi Robert, I hope they discussed whether fans could just attend the Saturday Dinner?

    CarpentersToYou What I feel has come and gone before...

    In my small, humble opinion:
    four days is a long trip this time of year.
    Would it be possible to flip flop a few of the days (having the tour days back-to-back)? Maybe getting rid of the free day or putting it at the beginning so that some of us can come later?

    Thank you for your patience, everyone.

    Here are the latest updates from the organizing committee:

    1) For those of you who will be visiting Thousand Oaks from out-of-town, you can now go ahead and contact the hotel to make reservations. Be sure to mention that you are planning to attend the Carpenters 50th Anniversary Celebration.

    2). Yes, we are planning to offer some options in terms of what you may wish to attend. For example, some people may want to attend just the Saturday buffet and the panel discussion. Others may want to participate in everything.

    Right now, Greg Kuritz is working on revisions to the website to allow for attendees to pick their preferred options. This involves some programming. Once that is done, Greg will "publish" the revisions so that you can select your choices.

    When I hear from Greg that he is satisfied with the reprogramming of the website, I will post another message to let you know. Again, thanks for your patience.

    Took my first steps on this today. Made the hotel reservations and filled-out the forms (for me and my wife) on the website for the itinerary selections and submitted to Greg Kuritz. $129 per night for a hotel room is a pretty good deal - you can "upgrade" if you want of course). Getting really excited about this, I think it will be a BLAST!!

    I’ll be following suit with the hotel booking in around a month from now.

    Re: 50th Anniversary, Need not send the forms in just yet. Here was my email reply I got yesterday:

    Hi...

    Registration is not open yet for the convention. As soon as it is, you are welcome to submit your form.

    Thank you!

    Hi, everyone.

    Just to clarify, you can go ahead and make reservations with the hotel.

    As for registration through the website, Greg is still working on the programming required to offer various pricing options to Celebration attendees. He, Peter and I are planning to hold a conference call later this week to discuss the website and other planning issues.

    After the call, I'll post an update to let you know when we expect the website registration to be up and running.

    Thanks for your patience.

    I'd love to be coming along as I've been a fan since age 10 (about 34 years now and counting!) So visiting Carpenters related places is my dream trip... I've worked out that it'll cost me well over $2,000 to attend with flights, hotel, travel etc.

    Maybe I can start a "fund my trip" page!! Haha
