Everyone that attends code mash is aware of this group. Therefore everyone would receive the same notification when rooms become available. Asking people to cancel their reservations to throw them back in the general pool is wrong as is telling the event organizers how to run an event that they have done one heck of a job at all these years. Just saying.

I fear that there may be a significant number of people choosing to take advantage of the significantly discounted rates in order to just make a vacation for themselves, after not getting a ticket to the conference. I hope that is not the case, of course, but with the total lack of availability, I'm forced to wonder.
