2 weekend nights in the category 2 hotel would be 6,000 points or 3,200 points+$60.
Food?  No idea.  Would depend where we got it from.

I think NJ will make more sense as most of us are from the the Tri-State area and can't necessarily travel (Job, Kids....). I can possibly arrange a hotel with use of the conference room for very reasonable in Somerset, NJ.  Dan, PM me.

There are nice things to be near in NJ? ;)

Should we make a vote for NJ or Niagara Falls?

I think the poll should also garner information, such as
highly consider if in NJ
highly consider if in Niagra
highly consider either way, prefer NJ
highly consider either way, prefer Niagra
think NJ is better
think Niagra is better
Let me know when there are more details: $$$, dates, etc.

There is nothing around the hotel as it is in a business district which is why I can get it for so cheap on weekends. We'll have nice rooms, a conference room to farbreng and each other. What more do we need??? If its about a DD Shabbathon then why do we all need to schlep to Niagra falls. Keep that for family trips!!!

The Aliyos can only be bought with MR, SPG or CO, DL would be a bizayon hatorah.
DD Elite members can buy low fare aliyos and waitlist for Maftir. If they dont clear then they have the option to bump and hope for avail at Kriyas hatorah by Mincha.

Does it need to be a kid-friendly place?

Perhaps people want to kill 2 birds with 1 stone?
Get a vacation and a DD meetup in 1 shot!

The entire friday afternoon would be a competition as to who paid less and got more free upgrades! And selling aliyos for miles is hilarious
