->> I am in the age bracket of not being able to rent a car without throwing money down. I am flying into LAX if that isn't the best option let me know. I can change the flight plans. Thanks for your help. Email me if you have an option for me.

If you can change your flight arrangements see if you can fly into the Oxnard/Ventura airport. From there its only like a 10-15 minute cab ride to the hotel.

Bert provided this link of shuttle services in one of his e-mails, though at this point both web sites have left me highly confused, as it appears neither shuttle service actually stops at the Holiday Inn Ventura. So I'm guessing I'll have to take the shuttle to wherever it might stop in Ventura, then cab it from there.

Jared: What airline are you flying into the Ventura airport? It doesn't seem like any big time operations go out of there. I'm coming from Chicago.

->> I just talked to the nice folks at the Holiday Inn Ventura and I was told that the Road Runner shuttle service does indeed stop right there at the hotel from LAX. They recommended booking the shuttle in advance as a round trip deal so that it correlates with your arrival / departure times at the airport. More on that tomorrow when I call them.

I hate "processes" (like college class registration, anything at the B.M.V, and booking long distance travel).

->> Nick, you need to look at a map. :) You are going to far south, Ventura is north of LA (around two hours if the traffic is light) and Orange is at least an hour and a half or more south of Los Angeles. LAX is probably your best option for Southwest. Maybe Burbank, but I suspect the LAX would be a better option for finding a lift with someone going to the Short Course.

->> So I made my shuttle reservation with Roadrunner over the phone and it was pretty straightforward.

You give them your flight numbers for arrival and departure (along with the times for arrival / departure), where you're going, and you're set.

When you get to the airport, no matter how late your flight may be, you just call Roadrunner's 800 number and they direct you to a van that's at the airport at the time that'll take you to the hotel.

My round trip from LAX to the Ventura Beach Holiday Inn was $127.00.

Their number is toll-free: (800) 247-7919.

This officially marks my last step of the "process", I'm all ready to go!!

I'll be heading back to LAX after the workshop on Saturday (Staying over for a early AM flight on Sun) so if anyone wants a ride back Sat. please let me know.

->> I've just realized my next logistical dilemma, which others who've never been to California before should take note of. The actual "short course" at Brooks is five miles from the hotel, so if you're like me (from out of town without a ride), you'll have to do some begging to fellow members at the hotel with cars unless you want to get some serious exercise - either that or get a cab, which I'm told the hotel can arrange.

Also, I will stay in Motel 6 in Ventura in case anyone still needs a place to stay (and save some $$$)... Oh, I don't snore.

I will go home Saturday night - again, if anyone needs a ride...

->> This message is regarded to Robert Hanashiro's post regarding Robert Meyer.


Robert, I am sorry but that is one of the most unprofessional things I have ever seen/heard about from this site. That conversation is between Robert Meyer and you, NOT for posting on this site. I understand that you think its "not right" of him to send that e-mail to you, but your not making it any better by posting that on this forum and making him look like a idiot. Honestly your no better than him at this point.

Second of all, you should not have posted his contact information on here. That is more unprofessional than posting that e-mail. If it were just the e-mail with no name or contact information, than that would have been close to "post worthy." But you passed the line by posting Robert's name and contact information.

Regardless if he is my friend or not, I would be posting this message anyway. I honestly think that both of you owe each other an appoligy.

Thank you very much for reading this, and I hope all of us can have a fun time here at the course.

->> Drew said "your not making it any better by posting that on this forum and making him look like a idiot". With the comment he made doesn't that make him look like an idiot by himself? I couldn't go to the course because it filled up so fast. If I was able to go, the last thing I would complain about is a six mile taxi ride or if I had to walk (I am sure the exercise would do good). Look at everything the volunteers are doing and how much the course is costing and you are going to defend this guy? Even after the email, Robert is still kind enough to try and help him get a ride
("It sounds like this person hasn't got that "Sports Shooter Spirit" that I wrote about here and in other ss.com threads ...

If someone out there wants to get past this ... atitude ... and maybe help this guy out with a lift, please contact him asap.
