    I'm going! We drive and I would say with registration and all it costs between $450 and $500. The more shows you can get on your calendar right now the better. Save the money from there for conference.

    I earned level 1 too but also have conference club savings. So I'll use the money from that for the hotel and spending money!

    Me too - I was withholding enough to pay for conference, and the hotel...so now I'll have enough for the hotel & spending money! (transportation is a minimal cost for me...since we just take a commuter train into Chicago from Michigan City. for gas and train ticket, round trip, it's less than $30.)

    It all depends on whether I can afford to go or have to spend my return on something "frivilous" like a car.

    Last year I was seriously scraping. Truth be told, I should not have gone two ears ago because I was paying for that one for months!

    Just checked train fare for the fun of it ... it's $50 each way and I'd have to leave at 3 a.m.! Last time I went, plane tickets were under $150. But that does not include registration ($200) hotel (another $200) and meals.

    If I do it, I'm toying with going early or staying late to visit with my cousin in Chicagoland and maybe check out her husband's church.

    Wouldn't miss this one! And it's a great time for my family to go too. My in-laws live in the suburbs- so we spend extra time visiting with them, and my DH and 2 boys go to Chicago with me (we take the Metra into town from the in-laws). My family checks out the city sites and have a good time, while I'm at conference....and this year- since we can be there a little earlier due to registration-day, I'll probably spend at least one day with them in the city this time! Yeah! And last year, my FIL spent the day with them in the city too- which the boys enjoyed.

    Costs me a bit more because I'm not splitting hotel, but they are all looking forward to it.

    If I go I will either have to take someone with me to watch my three year old or have to take him from Colorado to Virginia to stay with his grandparents first - since my husband will be in Iraq. We'll have to see how things go. I am signed up for Conference Club though, so I at least have a start.

    I am doing Conference Club. I missed free registration by less than 2,000 points. If my Recruit had qualified before December 31, I would have had it. Unfortunately both the ladies who were hosting her first two shows (that she hoped to get lots of bookings from) both were too sick to do them! I am also going to do some saving along the way to help out and book as many shows as I can. I was in a room with 4 other people last year and would rather pay a little more and have less people in the room! I already have a couple of people who want to room with me so that will help. I met a lady from a local travel agency who said she could work on good fares for me...

    I earned it, but we will be moving from Okinawa to Tokyo right about that time, so I have no idea if we'll be able to work it out for me to make a trip to the states during that time. :(

    ME TOO! I am going to have to really book my butt off but I WILL be there! Last year I should not have gone but for some reason, NC is like potato chips to me. I have not missed one since I started in 2001! So I don't plan on starting now!

    I'm hoping to be there!! I have conference club going.
    My problem is that the summer is the busy time in my job. Last year it was hard, but do-able to take 3 days off, but this year it will be a whole week, so I'm not sure if my boss will go for it. I'm waiting until Feb or March to bring it up!!!!
    I really don't want to miss it though since it's the 30 year anniversary, I think it's going to be special!!

    I earned level 1, so I would love to be able to go. It is just a question as to whether or not we can afford it, and if my husband is up to caring for all 3 kids.

    I'm participating in Conference Club, and would love to go. However, there have been some changes recently which mean I'm not sure I can. I'm going to try my best to make it, but I'm just not sure.

    I'm out! :( Hubby got his orders & we'll be moving in May. I'm making a trip home to the states with the kids during the move to let the Great Grandparents meet the kids and will then be meeting him in Tokyo. I doubt very seriously that I'll be venturing back across the pacific 6-7 weeks later with two little ones in tow again.

    When is conference next year? I tried looking on CC but can't find it and am trying to figure out what days I need to take off from work so I can put in my vacation requests to be sure I can go.

    TIA
