Hello all,

Does anyone know whether a Floor seat means standing the whole time? My ticket says Floor Row 1, Seat 3 but when I look at the seating chart of the Rose Garden it shows floor as an open space. When I see Dylan shows, Floor means getting to the venue 6 hours hours early to make sure you get front row because it's just a standing pit in front of the stage.

Thanks,
Liz


P.S. can't wait to meet some of you!

Elaine (Aussie)

I sent you a PM with my contact information so we can caravan together from the airport to the hotel tomorrow. Please confirm you received it. I have a feeling my PMs are not going through.

Thanks.

If you are flying in and staying in the Crowne Plaza note that the shuttle bus is on request, rather than a regular schedule. I landed in Portland today and the Taxi Captain called the hotel and reqested the shuttle.

Feeling very much at home with the weather we are "enjoying" !

Greetings, y'all! Thinking about TONIGHT! Anyone who is staying at the Crowne Plaza--want to meet and ride to the venue together? IF the shuttle is available, that would be great, if it's not we would probably take a taxi. (it's not far). The light rail goes right to the Rose Garden, but it's several blocks walk from the hotel to the rail.

So, if y'all want to meet, let us know, right here. We were thinking 5ish?

Peace, Dee & Alice
