Our 2013 Meeting in Cabo will be here before you know it. Now is a good time to start making your arrangements for travel and hotel. I was in Cabo a few years ago and it is my favorite place on the ocean. The beaches combine the Gulf Coast white sugar sand with the rocky coastline of California.It is very easy to fly into and offers all the fun and sun we will be craving in February.
Room rates start at $225 a night and are being held for us at this special rate. An example would be – Run of The House- (single occupant $225) (two people sharing room $225) (three people sharing room $275) (family-two adults and two children children under 12 yrs of age $225) Junior Suites are $299 – Superior Jr Suites are $329- Premier One-Bedroom Suite is $399
Also a few rooms will be available for a few days before and after meeting dates for those who wish to stretch out the vacation atmosphere a bit longer.

The Countdown Begins…
Now that all the details of our hotel reservations are completed, here are some helpful things about the exchange rate and other financial details you’ll want to know for our trip….
The currency used in Quebec is the Canadian dollar. You might want to exchange your money before you arrive in Quebec, or when you get to town. Remember that you tend to pay more at the currency exchange bureaus at the airport will You can use American money, but the exchange rate is currently so low that it’s not worth it. Moreover, businesses have to give you the change back in Canadian dollars and they always keep a certain percentage for administration fees.
Using your credit card:
Most of the boutiques and shops allow customers to pay with their credit cards or their bank cards. This is the safest way to pay. All the cities and towns have cash dispensers (ATM) where you can withdraw money from your bank account with your bank card or your credit card. Note that some administration fees might be taken from your account.
Gratuities in Quebec are not included in the prices. At the restaurant and in bars, 15% is the norm. At the hotel, the bellboy and the baggage handler normally are awaiting a tip of $1 per piece of carried luggage.
Temperatures in Quebec at the time we plan to be there are 51-73 degrees, so plan accordingly. And don’t forget that sunset won’t be until 8:45 on June 21st so we get to enjoy the longest day of the year together.
Getting to the hotel from the airport:
Reasonably priced taxi service is available from the airport.
And, don’t forget this last reminder:
Free Internet in your hotel if you are a member of the Fairmont President’s club. Take a moment to register now, and to check out the other benefits. It’s free!
Thought you would want to take a look at this video about Show and Tell in Quebec this year. It won’t be like any other we have had lately, but it WILL be accompanied by some tasty caramel popcorn!
Looking forward to seeing you all in less than 40 days!
I’m sad to say that a couple of members have had to drop out of the Quebec trip this year. This means that we can still accept a few people to join us in June.
This is bound to be welcome news to anyone who hasn’t signed up yet!
If you’ve been up in the air about the trip, I hope this will be the last little nudge you need to join us. I have to release these rooms in early April, so let me know right away.
It’s going to be amazing.
