Shabbaton DO Master Thread
« on: April 05, 2011, 12:59:20 PM »
The idea of a Shabbaton DO was mentioned at the NYC DDF DO.

Any thoughts as to the feasibility of such an idea?

In Niagara Falls youl have a harder time finding a caterer, maybe some one from Toronto? I'm sure in NJ it will come out much cheaper

Niagara sounds exciting. Even if we can find someplace cheaper, might as well go to a nice place.

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.
