When must I register by? HARD DEADLINE of TBD. If you are not signed up by that date we will not be able to add you later (per Waze).

Where/how do I register? Link is above.

What rank is invited? Any/all ranks, from 1-6.

Where is it at? TBD, Clearwater Beach, Florida.

When is it? May 2, 2020

What typically happens at the event? Info on upcoming things, etc....editors give presentations, usually a map raid of some sort, open Q&A, meeting fellow editors to put a face to the name, etc.

Will we be put in hotel rooms with strangers, or do we each get our own? You get your own room, no sharing with strangers.

Can I bring a guest to stay in the hotel room with me? Yes, but they can't attend the actual meetup. Some are making a mini vacation out of it. Meals are not provided to guests.

Is the meetup in the same hotel? IE, could my guest use my car during the day as I wouldn’t need it? Yes, same hotel.

Can I open all the bottles in the mini bar and not pay for them? ;) You will put your own credit card down for incidentals, so you would pay for them.

The event itself is on Saturday? Is the hotel night for Friday or Saturday? Waze will pay for one night, Friday or Saturday is your choice. itzwolf or driving79 must be advised which night. If you are paying for a second night, then Waze will pay for Friday night. NOTE: Waze will cover a 2nd night ONLY IF the driving distance is more than 4 hours drive and requires this.

What are the beginning and end times? Friday night a dinner meetup could be arrange by attending editors. (you would pay for your own food though for this meal also.) Guests are also welcome. SER leadership would not be attending, they will be attending a separate dinner meeting. Many of you are staying an extra night, we have put together a Saturday night dinner (you would pay for your own food though for this meal also.) Guests are also welcome.

How is driving reimbursed? Mail in original receipts for gas and tolls, we will give you more info, but hold on to those receipts!

Any idea on how many are expected? Max of 40 editors.

Should I count on going, or is there a chance I get bumped for a higher level if it fills up? Count on going, it is first come first serve.

How do they reach out, there was no contact information to input? itzwolf and driving79 are the main contact points.

Do I reserve my own room, or will Waze staff do that? No, Waze will handle reservations for Friday night or Saturday night that Waze is paying for. itzwolf /driving79 will handle reservations for the extra nights if wanted. Any extra nights will be your responsibility to pay.
