2014 REPA Convention to be in Savannah, Georgia!
This page is under construction.
I am excited to announce that we have an agreement in principle with the Desoto Hilton in Savannah to hold the 2014 REPA Convention on Sept 2-4, 2014.
The Desoto Hilton was the Eastern long layover hotel smack in the middle of Savannah’s Historic District. The hotel has been modernized to reflect the first class, 4 Star Hotel that I remember. Candidly, this was one of my favorite layover cities and hotels in the Eastern system. The Six Pence English Pub is still alive and well. You can bet I will soak up a glass or two of suds and a sandwich for lunch.
There are so many great places to eat within walking distance and the transportation for us less mobile folks is very Charlestonesk with bike cabs, golf cart cabs and trolleys taking you on a regular basis down to the river front and other locations in the cities. In addition, Gulfstream Aircraft, Flight Safety Simulators, the Historic Bull Street Squares and the famed house and cemetery from the “Garden of Good and Evil” are just around the corner.
Additionally, we are going to revive the Hospitality Room with almost the entire 15th floor all to ourselves. It has a panoramic view of Savannah, a full wet bar, and the agreement that it will be all ours for the duration. Our Vice President, Bud Robbins will be in charge of Hospitality entertainment. You can look forward to some entertainment surprises as well.
Beyond our guaranteed block of 60 rooms per night, the rooms may become limited if you wait too long. While we are guaranteed the REPA rate 3 days prior and 3 days after, it is only guaranteed until the hotel reaches 80% occupancy. This is a happening place. As soon as we get the contact information you will want to make your reservations, even if you are not 100% sure you can attend.
This is going to be a great REPA Convention. Fun for all and plenty to do and see. Make your commitment and reservations early. I look forward to see all of you on September 2-4, 2014.
