Well, ah... yeah... well... um... guess I'm booked!

Postby hummingbird » Sun Jul 22, 2018 1:56 am

Over the past few weeks I made the decision that going to the Rally this year was not in the cards. The cost was simply too high, the exchange from Canadian to American dollars is horrible and adds at least $500 to the trip no matter which way you stack it up. I could use that money to upgrade my computer or buy newer VSTs or take more lessons or to pay for some composing programs on my wish list.

Then I heard the Rally hotel was selling out fast and people weren't able to get rooms at the Rally rate before the 1st. That got fixed and I leapt in, registered at TAXI for the Rally and made a booking at the hotel, all the while thinking, ummm wasn't I not going to go? < lights on, nobody's home? >

Then I looked at fares and stuff and said, well, I can easily cancel the hotel. < Not going. Not. Going. >

Then tonight I find myself on my favourite airline site, just checking what time flights are and what the cost is... yeah.. well... soon I was looking *everywhere* for my passport so I could fill in the required information < hello? Vikki? I thought you weren't going? Costs too much? Huh? >

So now, somehow, I have a return flight to LA, I'm registered for the Rally, and I've got a hotel room with a Heavenly Bed and a Fridge booked.

*Scratches head*

Aaaaagh! Me too! I'm in Victoria so it's a bit closer that almost every other part of Canada.
See you there! But the exchange is still s brutal

Hey Vikki! Glad you can make it. I know it costs a bunch but the value makes it worth the while. This will only be my fourth one (joined TAXI in 2015) and every Rally has either opened up a new door or steered me in a stronger direction.

And to D.T. since it's your first you're gonna' love it! Just make sure you research all the classes and mentors when the schedule is finally released. I think I've finally gotten to most of the classes I'm interested in but it took me 3 years, since some of the classes run at the same time.
Look forward to meeting you both! Best, John

I guess you listened to your heart instead of your head. :)

Last year I scraped every penny to go..one of my musician friends said.."winter is coming Linda...and it going to be a long one" Well I made it..and this year I did not have to scrape so to go again!

It is a wonderful educational and heartwarming, inspiring experience! See you there!

I know the feeling Vicki - I wasn't able to make it last year and wasn't sure about this year until I found myself buying the plane tickets this last Sunday. This will be my third rally. So stoked to be able make it there again.

Congrats on making the plunge! Hope to meet you there.
