This convention has already occured. Information about the 2007 convention can be found here.

ELNA's National Convention will take place July 21st through 24th in Manhattan, New York City.

A few questions for locals

Teodoro's picture

How close are the metro stations to the conference site and to the lodging (New School / Hotel Pennsylvania)?

What is pedestrian traffic like between the conference site and the lodging?

What do shuttles cost between the lodging and the airport? Alternately, what are the names and/or websites of some shuttle companies so I can research this myself?

What kind of pre- and post-conference activities will there be? I don't mind coming in a day earlier and leaving a day or two later if there will be some stuff to do, but I need to know soon so I can arrange my lodging. I would actually like to go see a play, if there's anyone local who wants to organize an unofficial pre-conference activity.

Mi respondu al viaj demandoj, cxar cxiuj Novjorkanaj Esperantistoj versxajne estas tro okupataj. Permesu min skribi en Esperanto.
*Jxus sub la kongresejo, trovigxas metro stacio "28th Street" (linio #1)
*Dormejoj cxe New School situas 8-20 blokoj for de la kongresejo (dependas kiu konstruajxo), 10-20 minutoj per piedo
*Hotel Pennsylvania situas nur 4 blokoj for de la kongresejo, 5 minutoj per piedo
*Transporto inter Manhattano kaj flughavenoj = Vidu
*Antaux/Post kongreso eventoj = pardonu, mi ne scias pri tio.

vegan food?

russ's picture

Last year's ELNA congress had a vegan food option, and as I recall 6 or 7 people used it, so it seems like the registration form should include such an option. (Assuming the venue can deal with supplying vegan food, which I would hope and expect.)

Sorry, I should have thought of that. We'll probably update the registration forms on the web site, but it's too late for the paper ones, which have already been printed by now and will soon be mailed. For now, you can write "vegan"/"vegetalano" in the "Other dietary needs"/"Aliaj specialaj dietaj bezonoj" line.

Yes, I reckon FIT catering can do vegan food as well as vegetarian. We haven't finalized the banquet order yet, actually -- partly because I've been busy with the Southeastern regional convention, and partly because the catering guy at FIT hasn't returned my calls promptly. Would you like to help pick out the vegan/vegetarian options for the buffet banquet? Let me know and I'll email you FIT's catering menus or links thereto.

can't reproduce the problem; maybe fixed already?

jimhenry's picture

Both the download links to the PDF files, and the PDF files themselves, work fine for me this morning (on a different machine from the one I opened them on before sending them to Robert to upload to the site). [edited to add] ... Based on an email from Robert this morning I think he's already fixed the problem y'all saw.

broken again, (I think) fixed again

jimhenry's picture

When I edited it today to add the statue-of-liberty-rampant-on-a-field-verdant (created by Jxenja Amis), the links broke again; apparently the "full HTML" option needed to get an <IMG> tag to show is inconsistent with parsing the x-convention Esperanto. I had to edit the links to take out the extra x (aligxxilo) Robert added, and copy-paste from charmap a gx into "aligxilo". FYI.

Corrupt PDFs?

Philip David Morgan's picture

Bonan matenon:

It appears that the two registration form PDFs (the "aligxilo" files) are corrupted - I couldn't open them with Adobe Reader or Apple's Mac OS X "Preview" app. Could someone please check this out?

Esperanta aligxilo

Por usi Esperantan aligxilon mi devis anstatauxigi la vorton "aligxilo" kun "aligxilo" en la retadreso.
