Steve Davidson, The Crotchety Old Fan, remembers “No bucks, no Buck Rogers.” That’s why he is spreading the news that Orlando in 2015 has negotiated its function space — a convention center on the grounds of a Disney resort — for $0 if the room bloc commitment is met. (And they are getting a rate of $139/night.) That, he observes, might create “some flexibility in membership fees, particularly discounts for targeted groups – be they families, students, daily tasters, whatever.”
There’s also a new Frank Wu poster on the bid’s website. If you think it’s as “amazing” as Steve does I’m sure that will bring a smile to his face.
