2014 ANNUAL GATHERING LOCATION CHANGED TO HARRISBURG!!!

Post by Dave Tuttle on Wed Apr 16, 2014 6:31 am

Rachel and I encountered an unfortunate and unexpected problem as we started the organizational work for this year's HEART gathering in Grand Rapids which led us to the difficult decision to move our gathering to another location.

When we contacted the local hotels to reserve a block of rooms and banquet facilities we found that virtually every downtown hotel was full. As it turned out Grand Rapids is the world headquarters for Amway and they're holding their huge 2014 conference the same weekend as our race. They have both convention centers booked as well as every decent hotel room for miles around... Rachel is of course VERY disappointed. She had been so excited about making this gathering a very special one but we decided it just wouldn't be possible to enjoy all the great things downtown Grand Rapids has to offer if we're stuck in a hotel miles outside of town.

So, we did some quick regrouping and have elected to move the gathering to Harrisburg, PA for the Harrisburg Marathon and Team Relay on Sunday November 9th... We heard quite a few good comments about this location when we ran it back in 2010 and we have a lot of members in the vicinity so we know we'll have a great turn out and a fun weekend in Harrisburg.

We have confirmed there are plenty of rooms available and are now negotiating a good group rate and looking into banquet possibilities. We apologize for any planning inconvenience this change may cause and we thank you for your continued support and participation. We'll get the details out as they firm up so mark (or change) your calendars and plan on running with your "HEART Buddies" in Harrisburg!

Although Grand Rapids is impossible this year we do think it is an excellent race for our group and we're hoping to go there for our 2015 gathering but that of course depends on hotel availability.

I am so very sorry to everyone here that this has happened.....I contacted the race director back in November about the fact that we were trying to bring in people from out of town and that we needed to know the accommodation situation, at that time he made NO mention of the Amway conference .....so this took me by total surprise.

I am very disappointed but I am also very much looking forward to meeting up in Harrisburg!!!!

I sincerely hope that this change did not cause any travel inconveniences and that most people will be able to join in on November 9 in PA!!!!

Sorry about your luck, folks, but the change means that now you're stuck with me on Nov 9th.

To make things more pleasant, I'll bring along the missus though.

Hey Gary, every cloud has a silver lining and this time you're it   sunny 

I was really happy to hear you and Linda will be able to join us in Harrisburg!

For those who don't get our event e mails (PM me if you want to), we've had a super response so far... As of today we have 19 runners!

I think we have a good chance to hit 30 by race time.

Too early to make any commitments, but I sure would love to see everyone again.
And since I missed Gary in Baltimore, that might give me more reason to show up.  cheers
