In reply to: Blech 's message, "Oireachtas room booking is epic fail. Best of luck if your kid dances 17th!" on 10:43:21 08/28/17 Mon

Why can the the New England Oireachtas committee not get their act together? I logged into the Marriott within minutes of noontime and the rooms were already gone. I called the Marriott (I am a rewards member, too). Absolutely nothing. How is it possible that the entire hotel is sold out in under 5 minutes? The Marriott reservations line told me booking was supposed to be done via phone not online for Oireachtas rate. Where was that information? Once again-complete chaos. In my line of work I attend conferences all of the time. Thousands of people attending from all over the world and I have Never had a glitch. Only issues with the IDTANA - They need to hire conference professionals because they are completely clueless!

[> [> Subject: Sorry you had a tough time. Similar here except I bailed on Marriott within 20 minutes and got Hilton and friend got Homewood. But 16th was impossible at both of those. DD dances Sat so we're good and will drive in early Friday or bunk with more fortunate friends to be there to support school.

Is it me or are there way more dancers than rooms on Friday?

[> [> [> Subject: This is just a guess, so don't jump all over me. Many of the older dancers in our school do the hair, make-up and warm-ups for the younger dancers. Way too many for TC to do by herself. That being said, they would book rooms Thursday, even though they don't dance until Saturday.

[> [> [> [> Subject: That's exactly our situation. DD is a mentor to the younger dancers in our school. She not only wants to support them but does hair for as many as possible. Hard to do hair for a dancer scheduled at 8 am when you are almost three hours away. But we will share with friends on Thursday which is fine.

Still frustrated
