Let me start off with a huge thanks to Gogo for sponsoring just an amazing event for RenesPoints readers in conjunction with the Chicago Seminars this coming weekend. I have few words to express how much this AVgeek day means to me.

So here is the deal. I have been blogging for a while about the “fun day” readers are set to have before the hundreds of frequent flyer junkies get together this coming weekend in Chicago. 16 have said yes and are confirmed! This means I have 4 VIP slots left to enjoy:

  • Drinks at Shelby Campbells (attached to Holiday Inn Elk Grove ) 2-4 PM
  • Shuttle to Gogo assembly facility in Chicago
  • A tour of all things Gogo including a 2ku unit to be installed in a Delta jet
  • Chicago Pizza and more after the tour
  • Shuttle back to the Holiday inn Elk Grove

It is going to be a flat out amazing afternoon and evening! But as mentioned I only have 4 slots remaining to fill. If you can make it then comment in this post and I will use Random.org to pic the final four to attend the event. You may only comment once and must confirm you can attend the event on this Thursday OCT 19th. I will hold the drawing on this Tuesday at some point via Gogo on my way to Manila (fitting, right)

Oh btw, in addition to all the above there is a drawing from Gogo including a 1 year full access Gogo membership up for grabs for one of the 20 in attendance! Plus, I have a feeling there will be other SWAG as well.

Lastly,  there still are tickets open for the Chicago Seminars so why not make it a full AVgeek weekend event! – René


UPDATE. Winners to attend are 9, 2, 11, 4


(disclaimer – Gogo will be providing much of the help and support with this event.)


  1. Will now be in RFD on Wednesday for meetings, only short drive away…Chicago seminar slots still open you say? Finally have a schedule change that works in my favor, LOL! Rene, for sure, please consider me available for the tour should my entry number be selected.

  2. My flight gets in at 2:30 so I should be able to make it before you head out at 4. If not selected, I look forward to seeing you guys at pizza dinner.

  3. Quit my current job last week and don’t start new one till 11/1 so what better way than AV geeking it up.

  4. I cant be there on the 19th but will look forward to a full report at the seminar. For those of you who are debating about attending…..dont debate….do it!
    The best part is meeting people like Rene and making friends who will gladly share tips and tricks that will make your life and travels better!
