Erik,

 

Either Providence (TF Green airport) or Hartford are about the same drive time to New London - however, the entire drive on I95 (from Providence, Rhode Island) can be jammed and a mess depending on your arrival time. Both arrival airports (from Denver) are serviced by Southwest which will have the best fares. I'm not certain about a nonstop to Providence but I do know there are non stops from Denver to Hartford. When you come, you'll need to stay another day and go to Mystic Seaport which is very close to New London. The last NRG Conference was in Mystic in the fall.

 

Hope to see you there! Safe travels...

Ron

Hi All,

 

As a first timer to this meeting, should I be expecting anything back confirming my  registration or just plan to show up on the day?  :)

 

Also, I am thinking of heading down the night before so any hotel recommendations from those familiar with the area would be much appreciated.

 

Cheers,

 

Nigel.

Nigel, I was a first timer last year. They didn't give an email confirmation then or now - just the cancelled check clearing the bank is the only confirmation - just show up. They had a packet at the door with badges etc  for each of us.  For me it's an easy 3 hr ride one way so we don't stay over but I'm told there is a Red Roof Inn in New London that some of the attendees stay at for the night.  Hope to see you there.

Nigel,

 

First and foremost - welcome to the Annual Northeast Ship Modeler's Show. You'll quickly discover your ship model colleagues are a friendly and enthusiastic bunch. :D

 

You'll like this event: many very nice models (close to 100 last couple of years), some important vendors to our hobby like Bluejacket, Crown Timbers, SyrenShipModels, etc... and, all kinds o' interesting people including a pretty large crew from this forum. The venue provides a very good catered lunch (really a dinner) and usually there is an interesting Conference speaker/subject.

 

Another couple options for your stay are the Hilton Inn in nearby Mystic and the Holiday Inn. The Holiday is $95 single occ. The Hilton is more but the hotel is very nice since it has been recently remodeled. The Hilton hosted last year's NRG Conference.

 

Presumably, you're driving from Upstate NY: this event is well worth the drive.

 

Do bring your cancelled check - or CC Statement - as back-up (just in case). The event is sort of ad hoc year-to-year and certain organizational details can be inadvertently overlooked (like email confirmations on your registration fee).

 

See you there Nigel. :cheers:

 

Ron

Hi Ron,

 

Many thanks for the additional info.  After all the kind replies, it is rather embarrassing, but work just reared its head over the last day or so and so I am no longer sure I can make it. :(  :( ...sigh.  

 

Reservation is in so that's good, but I am going to have to hold off on the hotel booking. We'll see if things move around at work again over the next week or so and  allow me to still make it...

 

Cheers,

 

Nigel.

Hey Nigel,

 

We all know that work drill; don't worry about it. The Conference/Show is yearly.

 

I hope you can work it out to attend, however. Tell the boss you're doing vital background research and you're even using your own personal time...just a suggestion... B)

 

Ron

Nigel, You probably can make it down and back in the same day - the trip from Saratoga Springs to New London is about the same for you as for me here in Saugerties.  Just take I-90 East to I-91 south to New London - should be around 3 hrs one way (give or take). Provided of course you work doesn't require you to work on that Saturday ;) :(

Just a reminder that the 34th Annual Northeast Ship Model Conference and Show will be held this Saturday, April 30.  This event will be held at the Port 'n' Starboard Convention Center at Ocean Beach Park in New London, Connecticut from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.  The Conference and Show is open to the public for a small fee at the door.

 

Last year there were over 100 ship models on display and many vendors.  This is your chance to see some of the ship models that are in build logs here on MSW and also meet and talk to the many MSW members who attend this event.

 

If you are within driving distance of this event, you do not want to miss it.  This is one of the top shows in the country for ship modelers.

 

I am looking forward to this event.

I am looking forward to seeing you guys and the other MSW members Saturday.  Maybe all MSW members should meet up around 11:00 for a MSW group picture.  We did this several years ago.  It was a lot of fun putting names to faces.  Unfortunately, my name got put with a much younger and better looking guy.

 

See everyone Saturday.
