It's a classic story. Boy meets woot. Girl meets woot. Boy meets girl. Girl lays claim to boy. Boy proposes at a winery in front of 20 other wooters. Girl decides to have a second reception just for the wooters.

You know, the kind of thing that happens every day.

Space is limited for this event... Those who received official invites will of course have first dibs, but we are opening this up to the rest of the woot community as well on a first-come-first-served basis!

(Pssst... just cuz it says RSVP by July 20th, that's not a hard and fast date - there's still room, still time - mostly we wanted that to have a roundabout number of how many to look for, but if you still want in, just let us know!)



Lodging options are available at several hotels in the area, although it is recommended that if you even think you MIGHT attend, you make a reservation as early as possible, as August weekends fill up FAST with events at various wineries in the area.

There is also the option of camping out at Twisted Oak. Yes. Camping. With tents and everything. Bring your own tent!

Space is limited for this event... But fortunately there's a lot of limited space. Invitations have been sent out,but once we receive RSVPs from these, depending on space, all are invited on a first-come basis.

But since everyone is talking about it anyway, figured we might as well start up a thread!

Have at it!


Can you pm me the email address so I can rsvp. I can't seem to locate the invite. I'm disorganized and our place is a mess right now.

We'll be staying at the Travelodge in Angels Camp. Debating on whether to do Friday and Saturday night or just Saturday night. Guess depends on what we're going to do with the dog.

Edit: Oh meant to say CONGRATS!!! So excited for this classic love story.

Well, if it helps any, HAK and I will be arriving in town on Friday during the day. We'll probably hit a few places in the area during the day but will likely get to the venue in mid afternoon for setup. There is a concert of some sort on Friday night nearby, but probably not going to go to that. We do have to leave Sunday afternoon to make it back to catch our homeward bound flight. Haven't really made solid plans aside from where we're staying and the event itself at this point.

So that's probably not helpful

molarchae and I have reservations for Fri/Sat nights at Travel Lodge in Angel's Camp. We may decide to camp at the winery anyway and save the $, also depending on whether we decide to drive up Friday afternoon or Saturday morning - LA traffic will be, um, interesting.

We definitely want to hit up a few wineries in the area. Maybe even make the extra trip up to Amador and finally visit some of those. I sense opportunities for collaboration...

We'll be driving back south probably by 4 or 5 pm Sunday so we can get to sleep at a reasonable hour for work the next day.

If you flew into Oakland, SFO, or San Jose (last choice on my part) on Saturday we could pick you up on our way up. But the plane would have to land pretty early so not sure what your thoughts are on that. Or Sacramento if someone else is flying in around the same time as you. Or you would have to rent a car. hope that helps.

So since there are so many Woot-crastinators out there such that we've gotten minimal responses to the first round of official invites we sent out (and have already had at least 10 declines ), we've reached the point of opening our arms and glasses to the rest of you!

It was tough choosing the initial list to begin with, so don't be slighted that you didn't get something in the mail. Even though you didn't get a physical invite, you are probably more deserving of this invite than Sparky.

So here's the deal to the rest of our Woot-family:



So the available spaces will be on a first-come-first-serve basis. For now, this is how I'll do it. Toss us an email. I'll automatically accept an amount up to the number of our current Declines. Anyone after that will be put on a waiting list, and as we get other declines, you'll be able join us in the festivities.

Oakland is a wee bit closer, but they're both about a two hours or longer (depending on traffic) to the wootception area. So does that mean you would land on Friday night or leaving Friday night? Just trying to figure it out.

If you landed in Oakland on Saturday, we could pick you up on the way to the wootception. SFO works too but a little bit more out of the way. Hope this made sense.

Yep. We're staying there. Also, flights into Oakland just went down in price from BUF.

I hate their secondary rental site location, but it saves a ton of $$. We rented thru them for D&D. The mid-size car turned into a mini-van for the same cost! Great mileage, too.


Too tired. Posting to myself. Must go to bed. Not sure if these are allergies or a major cold coming on! Ugh!

mommadeb, didn't we have some sort of correspondence that we are coming out on Wed for some family stuff and would be driving up from Redwood City, which is basically near the Bay Area? And, then, we discussed airports and possibly helping you with transportation? Or, did I imagine this and did I imagine CAgirl responding, too?

Nope. Didn't imagine it. I think it was a cyberpub convo.

Well, we can work it out but if mommadeb found a hotel near the oakland airport then either you or I could pick her up on our way to the wootception. Just a thought.

K. Sounds good. Don't know how long she's staying. We're going to hang in that area until Tues. so she'll probably need a ride back to Oakland.

I figured a hotel near the oakland airport would be easier on you too. And I would definitely come by and pick you up if I don't have to go to the in-laws place on Friday night to drop the dog off. Ugh. To figure out what to do with the dog now. Figured if not us, then bahwm could swing by and pick you up as well.

So hubby's okay with you coming out by yourself to hang with your wino friends?
