I have attended the Atlanta AMPS/Atlanta Soldiers show held at this location the last two years. The venue is super, the hotel is nice, and the host club does a heck of a job.

I can't wait to join you guys next April!

Cheers,
Rob

if you time a cannonball off the pool's edge to coincide with Mig Jiminez walking by carrying a fruity drink. Think something along the lines of a "Messin' With Sasquatch"

How about it?

The AMPS Atlanta guys have been having their regional here for a few years. All the show participants under one roof -- that's both a good thing and a bad thing!

I can't wait to get there next April!

Great theme too. Civil War Generals. Lee tanks up to Bosnian M-36 Jackson's. So many choices for Civil War Generals and time periods/User nations. This is a wide open theme!

And BTW, with all those sofas, do I really need a room?

Also, let's take it easy on the whole "hotlanta" thing. Somebody could get hurt.
