I am happy to announce the 2019 Chicago TI Friday gathering on November 1, 2019, a day-before companion event arranged and held separately from the Chicago TI Computer Users Group International World Faire.  This is a free-flow gathering for hackers and tinkerers to work on projects, show off collections, build, break, general mingling, relaxed socializing, and whatever else.

 

Links referenced below can be found here: https://locu.li/CTIFriday

 

This year's event will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn Chicago North Shore/Evanston.  Following on the heels of a successful 2018 Friday, we have doubled the size of the event room so we can accommodate more people and provide additional options for whatever needs arise, such as a divided light and dark side for projection, lighted projects, etc.  We have the room from 8am until 11pm.  As this is meant to be a companion event to the World Faire, participants are encouraged to attend the Faire's Friday dinner.

 

I have set up a PayPal Pool to accept contributions from anyone who wishes to chip in for the cost of the meeting space, $503.25.  Any amounts received over the goal will be put toward sundry for the room and participants.

 

We have a block of rooms arranged at the hotel.  ANY attendee, whether attending both events or just one, is welcome to book a room in the block for the group rate of $142 per night plus taxes.  Rooms are king or double, so attendees can buddy-up, and include breakfast for up to two people and a parking pass for the adjacent garage. 

 

You may book using the link provided or an alternate resource.  Group code is TICU with a booking deadline of October 17, for check-in on Thursday, October 31, and check-out on Sunday, November 3.  Late check-out is available.  Extended dates depend upon availability; contact the hotel directly for information.

 

Hilton Garden Inn Chicago North Shore/Evanston
1818 Maple Avenue, Evanston, Illinois, 60201, USA +1-847-475-6400

 

Terms for the block:

  • Any “no shows” are subject to the fee of one night’s lodging plus the applicable taxes, payable by the individual noted on the reservation.
  • All individual reservation cancellations must be made 48-hours prior to scheduled arrival; otherwise the individual will be billed for one night’s lodging plus occupancy tax.
  • An early departure fee of $50.00 will be assessed for any early room departures for guests who have been checked into the hotel.

While discussing options for lowering the room rate for this year it was mentioned that the rooms are double-occupancy so two attendees may share a room.

 

Hope to see everyone Friday and at the Faire on Sauturday!

ONCE AGAIN: THE FRIDAY GATHERING IS NEITHER AN OFFICIAL EVENT OF, NOR MEANT TO COMPETE WITH, THE CHICAGO INTERNATIONAL WORLD FAIRE, BUT IS A COMPANION EVENT THE DAY PRIOR.
