The Official New Years Eve Phone List thread

Hey everyone,
I'm collecting information for the phone list for the NYE extravaganza. If you're attending, please PM me with the following info:

TCF Name
Real Name
Cell #
Arrival Date
Departure Date
Arrival/Depature Method (car/plane (include airport)/live locally)
E-mail address

If you're heading up an activity, please also let me know what the activity is, and where/when it'll be.

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Hey everyone,

Thanks to those who have already PM'd me with their info. For those who haven't, please get me the info as soon as you can.

And for those who have replied with some "creative" responses, good for you! As long as you give me the accurate information too But a note -- More than half of those local to DC have put their date of birth for their arrival date, and unknown for their departure date. That joke has been run into the ground by now.

And lastly, a shout out to Abdul

It's DC, so it must be a conspiracy.

Well, I did that (and I gave my birth date even though I only moved to the area a about 6 years ago, I took it a bit more literally). However, since no one can tell any differently, I claim to be first and the rest were copying me... NYAH! NYAH!

Actually, I still have all the PMs, so I could tell you all who the first one to do it was.

And it turns out, it actually *was* Merc

Steve, I assume you have some secure/semi-secure way to distribute this? Would you also be kind enough to distribute written directions to our place with it?

I've been planning on emailing it out to everyone who gave me their info. Hence the request for email address.

By all means, forward me the driving directions and I'll include them in the email.

Can you add my name to the list? Then I can get a "pity" call, since I cannot be there.

By all means. I can include it

Peeps!

It's 15 days until New Years Eve. I'd like to have the list mailed out to everyone early the week after Xmas so everyone has it before they travel. If you've not yet given me your info, please get it to me ASAP.

Thank you,
Your Friendly Neighborhood Phone List Nagging Guy.

26th. It's gone out. If you haven't gotten it, you didn't send me your info, or your email address.

Got the directions and list today!

Question: Mapquest says the I-66 exit to Route 234 is Exit 47, not Exit 44. Which is it?

Looks like the main hotel (Marriott Courtyard Manassas Battlefield) is on Route 234 off the same exit. So those directions should be to get back onto Route 234 South and go from there. Is so?

Exit 44 is the 234 bypass which goes around Manassas. Exit 47 is 234 Business which takes you directly into Manassas (South) or the battlefield (North) - the Marriott is located at this exit.

As you travel west on I-66, you will hit Exit 44 first, Exit 47 is three miles later. I'm assuming that you'll take Exit 44 to get to the festivities, while the hotel is at Exit 47. Just be aware that this stretch of I-66 is under construction and is subject to extreme delays - especially during the Friday afternoon rush hour.

I think I'll be needing directions from the hotel to Merc's house.

I'm arriving Saturday afternoon, so the Friday evening rush hour doesn't concern me.

Any reason I can't go down Business 234 to Balls Ford Road and travel east from there, rather than getting back onto I-66?

Yes, that will work. Balls Ford Rd goes between Business 234 and the 234 bypass and is a good alternative to I-66.

BTW, Google Maps gave me completely different directions from Devlin Road to Merc's house. It wants me to (1) turn left at University Blvd, (2) turn right at Whitchurch Ct, (3) turn left at Sherborne, (4) turn right at Edmonston, (5) continue on Raging Waters, and finally (6) turn right at Copeland Park Way.

Does every address in Virginia have two completely different ways to get there? I have the same deal with my cousin in Alexandria.

Is 17 to 28 a decent route? For being a major highway, 95 sucks. So I'd like to take 17 on up to 28.

Hey. I'm just passing on the directions Merc gave me. Don't shoot the messenger.

But do get your butt to Merc's place on NYE
