Registration & Contests
Registration is going VERY WELL this year. In fact it is moving at a rate not seen since the 20thannual when we sold out the event. Remember that we close registration at 3,500 or on September 15thwhichever comes first. Don’t plan to wait too late in the year to book your reservation and get left out. Also remember we have a great contest prize and the deadline is only days away!
If you register before April 1, 2016 YOU will be put in a drawing to WIN 2 tickets to see JIMMY BUFFETT AND THE CORAL REEFER BAND in a city of your choice in the USA or Canada during the 2016 tour courtesy of MARGARITAVILLE FOODS!! All you have to do is register for the 25thANNUAL MEETING OF THE MINDS 2016!!! If you are the lucky winner YOU will win a pair of concert tickets and access to a pre-show VIP party for any 2016 regularly scheduled Jimmy Buffett tour date within the U.S. or Canada. The concert date must be selected at least 8 weeks prior to the show or as soon as possible if the concert is announced with less than 8 weeks notice. Yes I know there are shows in April and we will work with you if you win!
Here is the link to register for the 25th ANNUAL MEETING OF THE MINDS 2016:
I want to mention several things. First you must be registered for MOTM to stay at the Casa Marina during the event. This is checked monthly and tracked by our registration team. Also in order to be in the Casa Marina room contest you must be registered for MOTM to be in the drawing for the free room. Also to be moved from the Reach to the Casa Marina you must be registered for MOTM before we will move you over as vacancy occurs.
Given you have booked your room at the Casa Marina by April 1, 2016 AND REGISTERED FOR MOTM 2016 you will be put in the drawing to win a FOUR NIGHT STAY DURING MOTM 2016 IN A TWO BEDROOM OCEAN VIEW SUITE FREE!! Again, only the people who are on the Casa Marina reservations list AND registered for MOTM 2016 by April 1 will be eligible for the drawing. This is the fourth year in a row this prize has been offered. Ask some of the previous winners how cool this is to have this awesome suite right on the water in Key West during MOTM.
Many of you are emailing me asking about the missing gift bag stuffing party link on the registration page. Can you believe we filled the gift bag stuffing ballroom in EARLY JANUARY? Sorry but we can only put so many people in that room! Want to be on the wait list? Email our committee chair Teresa Burchwell at firstname.lastname@example.org . If there are cancellations you will be notified to help out with the party!
MOTM Entertainment Schedule Update
Contracts, emails, phone calls, and meetings are in process to finish the MOTM 2016 entertainment schedule. Look for a MOTM schedule announcement sometime in April!
The Reach Resort
Many of you are asking about the Reach Resort and the wait list. Here is the best thing to do if you want to be on the Casa Marina wait list. Here are the steps below:
Register for Meeting of the Minds 2016.
Book your room at the Reach Resort. There is no special Parrot Head rate at the Reach. Our rate is only valid at the Casa Marina.
Email our MOTM Director of Registration Rick Fyffe at email@example.com
Put in the title of your email “MOTM Casa Marina Wait List.” Tell Rick you are booked at the Reach and registered for MOTM. Rick will add you to the Casa Marina wait list in the order in which you contact him.
We have to fill the Casa Marina so we will work very hard to move everyone we can as cancellations occur. We will be working down the order in which you reply to Rick Fyffe. Sorry for any confusion but it is best to manage this list through Rick vs. contacting the hotel.
Here is the link to the Reach Resort:
Until next time, I’ll see you, down the road…
