Do we also need to fill out any info on the Rideshare page?

> Subject: [CODE4LIB] Code4Lib Van service to and from the
> Asheville Airport
> Code4Lib conference attendees:
> Since the price of taxi service from the airport is pretty
> steep (I've heard $40 taxi ride one way), the WCU and ASU
> libraries are looking at ways to help. We are planning to
> provide a limited van shuttle service for the Code4Lib
> conference coming and going to the Asheville airport. (We
> need a good name...perhaps the Air2Hot Van) We now have
> access to two minivans that can hold maximum of 6 passengers
> with their bags per trip.
> A Asheville Airport to Hotel Van Manifest has been drafted
> for the van loads based on flight information provided by
> attendees on the Rideshare wiki. Check out
> Van_Manifest to see what we have created. In addition, we
> are requesting that passengers wanting to use this service
> provide us with their email and cell phone information so we
> can contact you directly. Please send this information to
> [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>
> to confirm your spot. We will update the "confirmed" column
> in the table so you know we have received it.
> We only have a limited space on these two vans so make sure
> your information is correct. Please check both your flight
> arrival and departure times.
> We hope to provide a ride for everyone to/from the airport
> that needs it but only for Sunday-Friday. We suspect that
> there might be many more attendees needing rides during this
> period then have currently signed up for on the wiki. We will
> attempt to accommodate all those that have signed up but we
> only have the two vans and it's an hour and a half roundtrip
> to the hotel. Priority will be given to those how have
> already signed up right now. We will do our best with anyone
> who adds their info after this message is sent out. First
> check out the table to see what spots we have left in the
> current load runs.
> If the van is filled or doesn't currently run during your
> needed time slot, please add your information to the bottom
> of the rideshare page
> http://wiki.code4lib.org/index.php/C4L2010rideshare . We
> will look to see if we can accommodate your requests in our
> schedule. Please don't add loads to the manifest document
> yourself. We will monitor the rideshare list and add runs as
> we are able. Email me directly if you have any questions.
> We are working with the Guest Services and Ground
> Transportation Desk at the Asheville Airport baggage claim
> area to coordinating the pickup location for our vans. More
> information about this will be forthcoming directly to your
> provided email and cell phone info.
> Looking forwards to seeing you all in person. Feedback is welcome.
