Rendezvous Registration Reminder

28 Jun 2013 11:01 AM | Anonymous
Summertime Greetings from Surveyors Historical Society,

We invite you and urge you to attend Surveyors Rendezvous 2013 at historic Philadelphia this August. It's a remarkable event, featuring three historic dedication ceremonies. We'll "Set the Real Stargazer's Stone" on Thursday August 29, then dedicate a roadside historical marker at South Street in Philadelphia (Mason & Dixon's 'POB') on Friday August 30, and finally give Charles Mason an authentic 1766 Mason-Dixon Stone as a cemetery memorial on Saturday afternoon, August 31.

The purpose of this message is Hotel Rooms. Our "room block" in Philadelphia is filling up rapidly. That means the number of rooms available at our discount group rate is dwindling fast. We already ran out of rooms twice for one night, Wednesday August 28, and had to increase our block, but we can't add more. If you're planning on, or even thinking about, coming to Philadelphia for Rendezvous 2013, you should reserve your hotel room now. When they're gone, they're gone.

The best and easiest way is to call Hyatt's reservation "Hotline" number, 888-421-1442, and mention Surveyors Historical Society to obtain our group rate. It only takes a minute, and your card won't be charged until you check-out in August. Hyatt also has an on-line reservation "PassKey" system,, but most people are telling us the phone is quicker and simpler.

DEADLINES TO REMEMBER (and they're coming up quick) ---

'Early-Bird' Registration Cut-off . . . JULY 15, 2013 --- After that date, SHS registration fees go up.

'Group-Rate' Hotel Room Cut-off . . . AUGUST 2, 2013 --- Remaining hotel rooms will be released to the public. SHS group rate no longer obtainable.

Click here for our latest Rendezvous 2013 information brochure. It has some corrections and changes from earlier mailed versions. Most significant change is the large increase in Sponsorship Donors. Our profound thanks to them all. They're the ones making this entire event possible, and we could sure use more like them.

Please join us for Surveyors Rendezvous 2013 at historic Philadelphia this August 28-31, 2013. Our Rendezvous hotel is Hyatt Regency Penn's Landing, 201 South Columbus Boulevard, Philadelphia PA 19106. Phone (not for reservations) 215-928-1234.

This Rendezvous is shaping up to be one of the most significant events for our surveying profession in many years. How often do you set a cemetery stone for Charles Mason? (Nobody's done it since 1786.) And the stone we're giving him isn't an ordinary tombstone. It's one of his own Mason-Dixon stones, which for two centuries graced the line itself. You are invited. Rendezvous 2013 offers full PDH educational credits. Please help us spread the word. Many thanks, and we hope to see you there.

With highest professional regards,

Surveyors Historical Society
