Hello! Thanks for visiting the rumors squash page!
"Mehdique is making lots of money doing these gatherings."
Although there will be many gatherings to come, and to create them and fund them isn't at all easy, I would like everyone to know off the top that I am not making ANY money putting these together. I am however SPENDING money as your hostess. As well, I clean up after all of the gathering parties, NOT to hire a maid service... why?.... because I would rather put my money into the fun of it all. I also do the building of this web page, attempt to pay to get the ads off not to inconvenience anyone. I keep the books, turn in the reservations, deal with complaints and upsets and all the other little or big things that come up along the way.
All along, in making these arrangements, I am considering costs to my guests.
Actually I wouldn't mind beginning a business doing things like this, but since I work many hours a day, care for a family and spend time doing things like this, I really have no time.
The questions I would like to pose to the skeptics:
The highest amount that will be charged for an entire weekend will be 210.00 with many variations and many price selections to choose from! 210.00 is the most you will pay. The 210.00 selection gives you a private room, 6 all you can eat buffet meals, fresh baked snacks twice daily, 2 huge parties complete with fruit trays,Fine Cheese and cracker trays, hot wings and other wonderful things, decorations, all the cocktails etc you can handle music, dancing, a beautiful environment to relax in, with several beautiful amenitites.... All of this and some FOR AN ENTIRE WEEKEND! Not to mention! EVERY OTHER ACCOMMODATION PRICE INCLUDES EXACTLY THE SAME EXCEPT FOR THE PRIVATE ROOM!
If anyone can do this for a better price, and provide what I am providing for everyone, please be my guest. You will have one hell of a great turn out, I assure you. Further, Aubie and our family, pays just like everyone else.
This gathering is being put together because I care about everyone, as well, several people who have attended in the past have requested it. I do it because I want everyone to be able to afford to come and be in one place safely, to enjoy the beauty of friendship and nature inexpensively. I would think that if I were making money, I should be charging ALOT more than this.
More still, I am spending alot of my own funds to make this happen. If you ask around in the room, I am certain you will find other metas who went way above and beyond the call of provisions with the last two gatherings being held here, as well! There's no money to be made, I assure you.
If you have a rumor you would like to squash, please send it to MetaBash2004@aol.com
I believe if you feel you have any questions, you are welcome to e mail me directly you will find that I am more than willing to dicuss any questions or concerns you may have.
If you don't trust that, you always have the option of not supporting the gathering. You are invited, you aren't being forced :) No matter what your choices, enjoy and embrace them :) If I didn't feel connected to you, I wouldn't bother. It's just the way it is.
