    See you all there!

    Hey there Sean,

    I'll be arriving 11AM on Saturday. I do have a compact car rented. I'm staying at Hyatt Place Charlotte Downtown.

    Anyone here craft beer enthusiasts? I might see if I can bring some Canadian brews down with me. 🙂

    I'm scheduled to land at CLT at 3:39PM on Sunday. I've rented a car and will be staying in Fort Mill, SC (at the Comfort Inn); happy to drive / carpool with one or two people if the times line up. (Compact car, though; probably not going to be much space or comfort for more than that.)

    Flight out is 9:38AM Thursday morning, so early start there. Again, happy to drive anyone who's up in time to make the flight.

    Dave — I'm staying at the Comfort Inn as well and would be interested in carpooling. I get in at 5:30pm Sunday evening, so it'd not include airport to hotel. I leave about the same time as you on Thursday too.

    I'm arriving on the 19th at 3:15 p.m. and staying at the Hampton Inn & Suites — the closest hotel to the Microsoft Campus. I'm leaving on Wednesday the 22nd at approximately 8 p.m. I would be willing to take a ride either way, but only if that conveniently lines up for anyone.

    I'll be car less and hoofing it to the MS campus and back each day. I'd take a ride those days, but only if it's convenient. What I [i]really want[/i] is to carpool downtown for Sunday's meet-and-greet. That would be great!

    I'm thinking someplace with beer. Know of any good brew pubs in Charlotte? 🙂

    Oh...hello...

    Also...if anyone is planning on being in town Saturday, I may go to this one ahead of the group...because the name is so enticing.

    You can't be serious, Dave — can you? 😉 There was a recent email, 'PowerShell Summit 2015 Information,' that mentioned said meet-and-greet for Sunday (also to be announced that Sunday). It said it'll likely be in downtown Charlotte... Anyway, if someone is passing the MS campus area for that, please let me know.

    Never underestimate my ability to be oblivious! 🙂 I have the email, but didn't remember that bit.

    You're not far out of my way from Fort Mill to Charlotte; I can give you a ride. Not sure how late I'll be staying, though.

    That's awesome, Dave. I'll definitely take you up on a ride to the meet-and-greet. I understand that a return ride may not be an option, but one cab ride is better than two. Thanks, Dave!

    I am also staying close to the Microsoft Campus at the Fairfield Inn N Stes Marriott (7920 Arrowridge Blvd, Charlotte, NC 28273, Phone: 1-704-3195100). That is across I 77 from the Hampton Inn & Suites because that was full.
    I could use rides to the meet-and-greet and activities down town.
    I am arriving Sunday about 4:30 and leave Thursday about 11:30.

    Hi 🙂

    Travelling with my girlfriend, she needs to do something else while I'm at the conference. So we are planning to stay at a Airbnb in [b]Uptown [downtown?] Charlotte[/b].

    I'm very interested in [b]taxi/car pooling [/b]if anyone is in the same area. It looks like public transport isn't too great from downtown Charlotte to Microsoft campus. We are on a budget and open to suggestions.

    Planning to join the meet-and-greet Sunday.

    Jason and Tommy, please email me your contact info so we can coordinate on Sunday. DaveW@powershell.org .

    The mixer starts at 6pm, but we don't have to be there right away (and I expect that with Jason landing at 5:30, it'll be after 6pm when you're checked in to the hotel anyway.)

    BTW, I've just learned that the tweet was wrong and the mixer actually starts at 5pm. Jason, since you're not landing until 5:30, I probably won't be able to give you a ride to that, but will meet you in the hotel on Monday morning.
