Call for Images - Member Slide Show

AGG members are invited to present one to seven images of their work (new or restoration) in the Member “Slide Show” on Friday evening.

All images should be emailed to member@americanglassguild.org before April 30, 2013 in JPEG format and should be approximately 1024 x 768 pixels.   If the work is titled, please, include the title.  Also, please include your name and phone number.

 

A word about hotel registrations – The AGG is handling hotel reservations and in return, the hotel is giving us an excellent rate on the rooms.  The hotel doesn’t know the names of the people who have registered, yet.  We will send that to them later.  Please, don’t call the hotel and ask if you have a reservation, because they won’t know.

 

Transportation from the Airport to the Hotel

We have volunteer’s with chauffeurs’ licenses willing to make two trips to the Jacksonville airport (3:00 P.M. and 5:30 P.M.) on May 14 and 15.  Call Sister Diane at 904-669-5388 to make a reservation. 

 

Parking at the Hotel

The hotel has agreed to allow us to use their valet parking with unlimited entry and exit for $16 per day.  There is a public parking lot behind the hotel that is $7.50  each time you enter or per day if you leave your car.

 

Trolley Ticket

 

Don’t forget to sign up for the $20 Trolley Ticket.  It is good for three days and offers travel to the restaurants and places of interest in St. Augustine and also access to the bus to the beach. And it will include a dedicated trolley for the Thursday morning Stained Glass Trolley Tour.  This is a reduced rate from the usual three-day trolley pass, so if you didn’t sign up for it when you registered, email conference@americanglassguild.org to add it to your registration.

 

 

Morse Museum Tour 

 

We have some fun surprises planned for the bus to the Morse Museum on May 19.  The trip is $40 and you don’t want to miss the Morse Museum when you are this close to it.  The museum’s Tiffany collection includes jewelry, pottery, paintings, art glass, leaded-glass windows and lamps, and the chapel interior the artist designed for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. The Museum’s holdings also include a major collection of American art pottery and representative collections of late 19th- and early 20th-century American painting, graphics, and decorative art. If you didn’t sign up for it when you registered, email conference@americanglassguild.org to add it to your registration.

 

 

Ghosts and Gravestones Tour

 

If we have 15 or more participants interested in this tour on Saturday, May 18, 2013 – 8:00pm – 9:20pm, prices will be $22 for Adults and $12 for Children (4-12.)  Note:  Due to loud noises, children under 4 are not allowed on board.  In addition, the tour may not be suitable for children under 13.  Use parental discretion.

 

When the conductor howls “all aboard!” - Will you be there? Explore the darker side of the Nation’s Oldest City with our ghost guides and experience the historic haunted tales and legends found at every turn. Revisit the site of the terrible tragedy that occurred in 1873 at the St. Augustine Lighthouse. Included is a visit to the town’s most haunted building, The Old Jail, for an up close and personal encounter.

 

Tour participants also receive discounted prices at the following museums:

Old Jail Museum

$4.50 per person

Oldest Store Museum

$4.50 per person

St. Augustine History Museum

$4.50 per person

If you are interested in the ghost tour, email conference@americanglassguild.org

Any idea when the hotel will require a CC# in order to assign rooms? I'd think they wouldn't wait too long without some plastic assurance, when they have dozens of rooms presumably tied-up.

If you put your credit card number on your registration, then the AGG has (or will) charge the room amount.  The hotel will only need your credit card when you arrive in case you charge anything to your room while you are there.  The room itself will be paid for before you arrive.
