The U2 Conference showdown at my house (d)evolved into this: U2 conference for just me or nice summer vacation for the two of us.

...d'oh.

For what it's worth, I'm pushing for Ireland (U2ourism, of course, and I've never been) and Norway (big music festival with 2nd favorite band plus some up and coming groups I like).

^thanks for the info, lorijane!

So I see on the site that the conference proper is April 26 & 27, a Friday and Saturday. Since I have to work on Friday, that only leaves Sat that I can make it. Might not be worth my $250 then

I guess I underestimated the price. I won't be going, sorry.

Yeah, I was a little surprised how pricey it is, too. Plus travel and lodging... don't know if I could do it, even without the scheduling conflict.

I'm holding out hope that I'll be able to meet some of you on the next tour.  ;D

You're from L.A., right? I would love to go to L.A. so maybe if I could somehow get U2 tickets and a job...

I'm hoping to meet lots of you next tour,too. Easier to justify spending the money when there's a concert involved!

Hey, who knows what wonderful life changes we'll all experience before the next tour kicks off? I'll volunteer to host the next tour L.A. party though! Pool and hot tub guaranteed (and good for use even in January with 80-degree weather today)!

Wait, is hotel lodgind included in the $250? I skimmed the site you provided and I thought that a stay at the Mariott was included? Or is $250 just to enter the conference?

Nope, I think lodging is extra.  There's a couple breakfasts and I think a lunch included in the price, but I think the hotel room itself is not.

Lodging is extra. I am saving on costs by doubling up with someone.

I'm not even sure I can afford that price right now given all my wedding expenses. I wish they had some pass for Clevelanders that was less money.

But, regardless of whether or not I go, if everyone's in town, I may still consider a BBQ and have everyone over. I'm sure Crow wouldnt mind. He loves having people over too!
