From the first page of this thread:

" From June 4 - 7, 2009, it's being hosted at the La Quinta Inn & Suites at Nashville Airport/Opryland with transportation available to and from the airport (Nashville International, BNA). "

They told me they would have shuttle service. I will call Monday and double check that with them. If all else fails, we can shuttle in my minivan.

Good to hear. Also got word from the Consumerist is that if you are renting a specialty vehicle (like a 15-passenger bus) to call ahead and confirm the reservation got into the system and that they'll have it.

Thanks, Aggie! Um... how much advanced notice do they need to come pick us up. Like, do we call when we get there, or call tomorrow to let them know when we're suppose to land?

Can you tell I don't fly very often? :p

You need to call when you get to the airport and arrive. If you call and tell them your flight schedule, that wont account for any delays or anything like that.

Once at Nashville airport, collect your luggage to make sure you have all of it (I went to Amsterdam only to find my luggage wasn't arriving until the next day....*sigh*) then call. You can sit outside on the benches and wait for the shuttle. They are only about 15 minutes drive away, so it shouldn't take long for them to show up.

There will be some sort of shelter at the benches, right? Because it's supposed to be a chilly (for me this time of year) 72 degrees and raining in Nashville tomorrow afternoon when I arrive. I suppose I could buy an umbrella at a gift shop, though.

It is completely covered and dry.

We (Reinder and I) will be at the hotel some time in the afternoon. My cell number is 931-349-2292 for anyone who needs assistance.

Vivian and I are here, and not entirely sure if we're the first ones to arrive or not. We checked into the hotel and are waiting for some cool people to show up before we go to lunch.

Probably so, Cortland. Aggie, Reinder, Lia and I are still getting things together - loading the van, etc. We should be there later this afternoon, before or around 5 PM or so if everything goes smoothly.
Here we stand, here we fall; history don't care at all. Make the bed, light the light; Lady Mercy won't be home tonight.

The Kolters have arrived, and we are in room #511.

I'm told others have arrived as well, and that all our rooms are close to each other.

it's almost 5 pm-- this is what's going on so far:

Room 519 Aggie/Reinder
Room 511 Kolter family
Room 517 Lia, Silent B
Room 520 Aura, Hogan Dave
Room 522 Cortland and Vivian

After 6 pm we are going to the Opry Mills mall, gonna hit the food court for cheap dinner, shopping etc. Tomorrow will likely be hitting Nashville for the sights. I already have the key for the meeting room and tomorrow I will be going home for a little bit to pick up my large screen television and feed my farm animals (I have goats and chickens to be checked up on). Cortland and Vivian want to head out and see the sights of Nashville, and I have suggested a lunch at the Sitar Hindu restaurant for their week day lunch buffet.

There is a sign up sheet on my hotel room door to tell us all what room you are in. It also has my cell phone number listed on there again if you need it.

YAY THE PARTY IS STARTING!!!

Aggie *hugs*

Shuttle UPDATE:

When you call for the shuttle, please say the name of the party who has RENTED/RESERVED THE ROOM. They will only send a shuttle if you are able to prove you have reserved a room.
