It wasn't, at least not the extent publicly = DDF.
There's another type of Public?

All those 9 pages were back and forth waiting for people to get their act together. Just take the initiative, get a couple guys together, decide a place and date, and everyone else will come running.

Interesting because there was a reservation booked out of your account ;)
Deja vu?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

If guys are interested in replicating, it's really not terribly difficult to do. If 2 or 3 guys make reservations, you will instantly have others joining.  If you ponder and wonder and discuss you won't get anywhere.

Identify a hotel, book a few rooms for this weekend, post a maximum # of attendees based on the space available for eating/davening, and then just start co-coordinating who will bring food, paper goods, siddurim, etc etc.

This weekend is a holiday weekend and most people are off on Friday. Just take it and run with it. I'm pretty positive that if 2-3 people start it it will snowball. Your biggest issue will be trying to calm the masses of people who want to join that you have no room for.

If someone is seriously ready to arrange something PM me and I'll give you some guidance based on how we arranged ours.

You enjoy shabbatons, we enjoy complaining. What's so hard to understand?

exactly how we did it.
2 of us booked, and then others joined.
The issue in this hotel was that they would not allow food in the conference room iirc. So we were very limited with space.
Only had as much space as a suite would allow.
Always use an Amex, you'll thank me one day.

We learned from our mistakes and it only worked because 2 or 4 people were gonna go either way, and basically said "we are going" enough people just hoped along
If you think nobody cares about you... just forget to pay your credit card bill
