ANNOUNCING MARF IV...4/16/2011..OFFICIAL INFO THREAD

Postby (leftybass) » Sun Jan 09, 2011 10:52 am

Hello folks. Here we are once again to announce...ANOTHER MARF..!!!

This thread will be the official thread for all OFFICIAL info for the Mid-Atlantic Rick-Fest for 2011-"MARF IV"...a ONE-DAY event.

16 April 2011, 9AM-6PM.

The event will once again be free to all who attend, all you have to do is get there with your Ricks!

Hotel accomodations are available once again at:

Hampton Inn and Conference Center
121 Laurel Oak Road, Voorhees, New Jersey, USA 08043
Tel: +1-856-346-4500 Fax: +1-856-346-2402

http://www.hamptoninn.com/en/hp/hotels/ ... cn=VORNJHX

We have a block of rooms booked, and our group code is "MAR" for the preferred rate ($99.00). Make your reservations as soon as possible. This hotel is approx. 3 miles from POTR, and there are plenty of places to eat around the hotel.......I tested the reservation page, and we are listed in there...it'll work.

We may probably add another hotel very soon so that there will be plenty of rooms available, but as we said please make your reservations asap.

As previously revealed the MARF IV event will be held at:

Pick Of The Ricks
121 Holly St., Lindenwold, NJ 08021
856.782.7300
http://www.pickofthericks.com

We are requiring all attendees to pre-register as well as list what instruments you will be bringing, and you can do this via this link:

http://www.pickofthericks.com/pages/MARF-2011.html

This will give us a register of instruments and a head-count of attendees, thank you 'muchly' in advance.

In essence, Chris has graciously lent us his store for the weekend, and there will be plenty of room for Rickenbackers to hang on the wall, on stands, any old way, really.

We'll have room for a small amount of amplifiers. Since the event will be held at a music store, there will also be plenty of amps on-hand to play through once you're there.

There may be some after-fest activities, and we'll give notice to this once we get it all figured out....

If you want to bring an amp (No Big Rigs please, like an SVT) let Chris or myself know ahead of time.

Questions?? Post them here, or e-mail POTR or myself privately, or by PM.

Specifications subject to change without notice, but I'll try to notify you here if any occur, LOL...

Have fun (that's what it's all about), and see you there.

If I fly into Philly, how far is the airport from POR? Trying to figure if I should get a rental car or stick out my thumb. Perhaps hotel shuttle? Personal hovercraft? Teleportation?

Paul: Not too far from what I can tell, probably 1/2 hour or so from the Fest area...I'll get a better estimation from Chris or even better you can just call the store and ask him.

I'd also like to add that the hours are different than what I posted.

ACTUAL hours for the event are 10am-8pm.

Cool, but I don't want to tear you away from the festivities. Don't know when I would arrive just yet. Won't be bringing anything from the Rickenbacker National Forest, sorry, but I should have quite a bit of the book to show.

Paul, Chris Clayton also confirmed the time from the airport as about 1/2 hour, on average...depending upon traffic.

Looking forward to seeing the work on the book. Did you get my e-mail the other day..? Just checking..

Yes I did, John.

There appears to be something wrong with the hotel link. Gives me a blank page. I'll call to make the reservation.

Paul, I will have the link updated, thanks for letting me know...all anyone should have to do is plug in the dates on the right side of the page and enter 'MAR' in the group code section for the promo price.
