Sounds mighty tempting. We should take up a collection for that!

Hah hah! Darn! Where's that extra grand when ya need it? Would love to see that, Dylan.

Rob, plans are moving along--hope to find you there!

By the way, I hate to be so completely ignorant, but do I have to register, or if I just want to look and play do I only need to get a floor pass?

Registration is what gives you the floor pass. Use one of the registration codes that Chris posted earlier in this thread to avoid paying for the pass. You will get a packet in the mail from NAB.

But to get into the secret DV-INFO party, you'll have to complete some additional tasks such as a demonstrated ability to drink Shiner Bock (the national beer of Texas). :-)

Hope you can make it!

Well, as I posted in the "beer forum" I did all right with Amber Bock a few days ago. How much more difficult can the pride of Texas be? ;) Sounds like fun tryin'!

Thanks for the help!

I think you'll do just fine on the entrance exam! So, I wonder how much the airline would charge me to ship a keg of Shiner? Wouldn't that make for an interesting baggage claim.

And believe it or not, I still have that bottle of Raspberry Hangar One Vodka in my freezer, courtesy of AJA Video. Why do I still have half a bottle left from last April? Why, because that vodka's made for sippin', not for chuggin'....

(do I look tipsy?)
Hey Scott,

I don't know you, but my Hangar One is not just for sipping. It's for enjoying, so make sure it's all gone by before NAB 06. Perhaps I'll bump into you. I have my Hangar One shipped to me straight from the mfg to PA where there is none to be found.

Jerry, I'm working the Hangar One, believe me.

It's just that ever since I lived downstairs from a pair of Russian immigrants in New York, Vodka and I have had a love/hate relationship. Long story.

Anyway, I finally got around to registering for my exhibits-only pass (thanks, Chris!). I'm trying to line up invitations to all the Sunday events, but no one seems to have announced anything yet. I've been to Apple the last two years, but I missed out on both Adobe and Sony.

I'll be there Sunday morning - any word yet on Sunday activities?

Barring any emergencies, I'll be there. I gotta see this. I hear NAB is the Nirvana of video people, the Disney World of digital. I'm registered for the free VIP pass. Thanks, Chris. You're a good lad.

Plus, I'll get to see Chris Hurd's 1960's TV Detective haircut. To me, that will be worth the trip.

I just registered with the Graham Patten pass. I'll stop by their booth and thank them personally when I get there.

Got room reservations at the El Cortez for 50.00 a night located about 3 miles from the Convention Center. Not for everyone,
but you can take a taxi, catch the monorail or walk. Everything else close to the center seems to be starting at 150.00 a night.

Hugh DiMauro at NAB........Las Vegas will never be the same. ;)

Hey Joe, I know what you mean about the rooms. Now I've gotta get a job to help pay for all the fun!

About the passes, yes--thank you, Chris and Quantel!

Las Vegas is not one bit jealous of Atlantic City.

Hell, they're just building an ocean for the hell of it!

East Coast, Yeah baby!

Thanks, Chris

Using the information that you posted for free exhibits passes to the NAB I was able to obtain one. I've never been to a NAB event, and I can't stay for the whole thing, but I will be there Sunday the 23rd and Monday the 24th, and I am planning to attend a Sony Vegas seminar being taught by the VAAST group. I'm sure that it will be interesting.

BTW...If you want to save $$$$ book your hotel thru NAB's site you will definitly save some money. I booked at the Monte Carlo and saved about
$75.00 a night compared to expedia prices. Just book fast the NAB rooms sell out fast, then your stuck paying high prices since it is NAB week.
Good Luck, See you all there.
