We all love the environment, right? Well, here’s one way that helps the environment, but also helps the convention!
It was important to me that attendees not have to pay to park downtown. Paying to park for an event is a pet peeve of mine. To that end, the convention is covering self-parking at the hotel garage. But that’s still a cost for the convention, and a somewhat unknown cost at that. So to help keep it in control, I’m running the Carpooler’s Raffle.
It will be a special door prize drawing, but the only way to get in will be by helping bring those parking costs down. So if you carpool, everyone in the car will be entered. If you walk, bike, rollerblade, skateboard, or pogo stick to the convention instead of driving and parking, you’ll be entered. If you take a Capital Metro bus, you’ll be entered. If you take a taxi, you’ll be entered. If you’d rather just pay for your own parking, you can be entered.
We’ll be doing one of these drawings each night, and to enter, either bring your carpooling party up to the front desk when you validate your parking, or come by and say that you don’t need a validation and you’ll get entered in.
Help the environment, help the convention, and help yourself! This is a co-op game where everyone wins!
