  2. We'll have a restaurant list at the convention so enjoy exploring Omaha
  3. Vendors are setting up on Tuesday and Wednesday. Drop me an email Scott.hackney@cox.net if you need more information.
  4. Drop me an email scott.hackney@cox.net Chairman 2017 IPMS NATIONAL CONVENTION
  5. The cow on the roof is Anthony's. A good reasonably priced steakhouse. My wife has put together list of the best restaurants of all varieties that will be available at the convention for your dining pleasure. Scott
  6. We had to close the tours for a bunch of reasons. Yes the base has to do a security check and we are contacting those people now. We also needed to contract the buses. The zoo tour we aren't getting a break on the ticket price. It's a great zoo and I highly recommend it. Go on Friday early and enjoy. Stop by and chat with myself or my wife if you want any tips. Scott
  7. Mark, I've got you two. Send me a PM and I'll tell you my tail. Scott Hackney
  8. There are some rooms available due to cancellations and the convention rate should apply. If you can't get the convention rate book anyway and reach out to me through the convention website and I should be able to fix it. I haven't failed yet. You can always cancel. The Embassy has the breakfast and Marriot doesn't. The Marriot is also less expensive. It was a choice. Scott Hackney 2017 Convention Chairman
  9. Hi Tim, yes you could. I would tell you the packages get slimmer every year. Most manufacturers depend on the internet now so we have very little to stuff in the bags. Books are too expensive as well. The spare pins by popular demand will be on sale at the desk and Spruebrothers should have the Decals on sale a couple days after the event. It's a Fabulous decal of Vietnam Sam Killers in two scales in you're in to such things. Scott Hackney 2017 Convention Chairman
  10. Hi folks, there will be plenty of seats for viewing the awards presentation in a separate room. Just as in 2011 we will broadcast the awards presentation into a room that seats between 150-200 people right across from the contest room. Bring your popcorn and enjoy the show! Scott Hackney 2017 Convention Chairman
  11. We are working with Embassy on such a mechanism. Standby for news Scott
  12. Folks the Embassy is sold out! All 250 rooms went by Saturday afternoon. The Courtyard has about 75 rooms left. These are the two attached hotels. There are three other hotels across the street (one under construction) so there's no shortage of rooms. We will work with those hotels for rates. The Vendors Room is also approaching a sellout with over 300 tables sold and less than 30 tables left. We are amazed and humbled by the response to Going Downtown. To have this kind of response from both the vendors and the members is fantastic. Let us know if we can be of help. The website is up ipmsusa2017.com Scott Hackney Chairman
  13. Haven't seen your email yet. I'm getting lots of email at Omahabythesea@cox.net. Please try again. Thanks Scott
  14. Lots of us here. Drop me an email at omahabythesea.com and I'll hook you up. Scott Hackney Chairman, 2011 IPMS National Convention
