FEW is official: FEW - Fall Event West 2017

Flounder- can you edit our title with the official dates and maybe add the team name to avoid confusion

I'm finding itineraries at $344, flying out of BWI at 8:10 AM on the 26th and returning at 6:00 PM on the 30th

I have enough Hilton points to be meaningful now, and there is a Hampton in Bakersfield low enough to book two rooms for the duration

We will want to ship guns, etc as Wade noted... and actually that doesn't work because we have no time on Monday to return the shipments... any ideas?

Also-who is still interested?

Return shipping is not that hard, we can drop them off at a Staples (open til 6 on Sunday) or other shipping center. I can print labels out ahead of time. It is not like the size or weight of the package will change over the weekend all that much. Worst case scenario we leave them at the hotel and pay UPS for a scheduled pickup.

I will have enough Hilton and IHG points to cover a few rooms by then.

So I'm really hoping to make this work. I'm in vacation around there with the wife so cash will likely be tight. I would look to split s room with someone if possible and think I can make it work!

Here's what I figure for a rough cost:
Flight 450
Game 65
Car Rental 150
Hotel 125
Food 100
Gas 10
Shipping 100(?)

~$1000


There may be some preliminary ideas getting worked in the background that might improve costs.

I made a lot of assumptions and estimated high so if anything, it should come down, but since so much of this depends on per-person splits, at some point I need to set a date for a definite commitment list so we can pull triggers.

I looked into RV rental for the weekend comes out to about $700 sleeps 4. While I like the idea of staying at the field I am not sure this is our best option.

I should have enough hotel points for a room or two so we can negate those costs. Car rental can be split to help reduce costs a bit.

We do need to get an actual count of who is going so we can figure out how many rooms we need.
