It is open to all; we're always a happily mixed crowd! It's such a great event; prepare to be amazed :smile: ...we already have a bunch of registrations (much more than indicated in the poll)... The secret is out about TONMOCON -- no agenda, but the lines are forming! :smile: We'll have much more info in the early Spring; I expect we'll easily have a full house. I look forward to seeing you there! :boat:

I'm looking at travel options. Can someone who has been to a previous Tonmocon in Woods Hole let me know how manageable getting from Boston to Woods Hole is going to be? I'll be flying in from Vancouver and BOS is the cheapest flight option.

@GPO87 The ONLY practical (unless you rent a car - you won't need one in Woods Hole) is to take the Peter Pan bus. There is, of course, an app for that :titanites:

Not the greatest app but it works and there were not cheaper tickets if you waited until you arrived (or so it went last time). Several of us stayed an additional night near the airport so we could have a full Sunday in Woods Hole and catch a plane out on Monday. I don't think buying a round trip was any cheaper so you might only prepurchase your ticket to Woods Hole and then wait to see if someone has a car and is looking for riders back to the airport.

The bus will drop you off a couple of easy blocks from the dorm.

John is a Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer engineer, so I’m hoping that we get to tour all of the things we did last time so he can see all of the different tank set ups for himself!

We are planning on renting a car to drive from Detroit to Woods Hole, but making stops on the way. Planning on getting to Boston on Tuesday 10-13 and doing the NEQ the next day, then to Cape Cod for a couple days before the convention. We’ll drive to the airport Sunday night and fly out late or Monday morning.

If anyone -wants to meet up at the aquarium on Wednesday OR
- needs a ride back to the airport on Sunday, let us know!
