IGKT-NAB meeting (Buckeye meeting) - Columbus, Ohio 2015

October 30, 31, November 1, 2015
Fairfield Inn and Suites, Columbus Polaris

9000 Worthington Road, (Just off I-71)
Columbus, Ohio 43082
Phone: 614.568.0770/ Fax: 614.568.0771

The Fairfield Inn has given us a reduced rate on rooms at $104 a night. You must make your own reservations by phone and have a valid credit card. You will need to inform the hotel you are an IGKT member when making your reservation in order to receive the lower room rate. This room rate is available until October 2, 2015. They will allow reservations after that date on a case by case basis. If you are unable to get the special rate, please contact me (Glenn Dickey at alexd_3@juno.com). Reservations can be cancelled up to October 29, but a 24 - hour notice is needed.

Other than breakfast, attendees will need to make their own eating arrangements. This provides an opportunity for members to socialize with someone you may only know by an article in Knotting Matters or the InterKnot. The hotel provides a free hot breakfast for guests at the hotel and there are numerous restaurants nearby. The hotel can provide a box lunch on Saturday, but I will need a minimum of 10 people to sign up for the box lunch. Cost is $14 per person. I will have coffee, soft drinks, and water in the large meeting room (Carnation Room).

We have the meeting room available starting Friday evening through Saturday night. It will be used for checking in and socializing on Friday night and classes will be held in the same room on Saturday. This should provide us with plenty of time for socializing and knot tying. The meeting room can accommodate 100 people. There are no events scheduled for Sunday. Spill over meetings can be held in the breakfast area which has plenty of tables and seating.

Registration is $10 if you are taking a class, waived if you are instructing a class.

Any questions can be sent to Glenn at alexd_3@juno.com. Please put “IGKT Columbus” on the subject line. Telephone number to reach me is 614.284.1104. If I don’t answer, leave a name and number for call back.

Why should you come to one of these meetings?

Each of us has been to a "first meeting." It's time you did the same.

You will meet individuals with a wide range of skills and interests. None of us can tie EVERY knot. (Not all of us can tie some simple ones!) The annual meetings are a chance for people to come together and learn new knots, new skills, new techniques and make some new connections. Past meetings have had attendees from all over the earth. Young and young at heart, newcomers to knotttng and seasoned knotters. We would really like to see you there! We'll have a piece of cord there waiting for you.

Oh, it's okay if you're not a NAB or an IGKT member. If you have an interest in ANY area of knotting or are at ANY skill level, you are more than welcome to be there!
