Hi All, 

I am cross posting this to the Asterisk Users, Biz, and Dev lists at the suggestion of David Duffet, so sorry if you see it multiple times.

As this year Astricon is in Orlando, and most of us are tech geeks in on form or another, we are trying to organize a road trip to see NASA's Kennedy Space Center.

I have been in touch with their group sales office and was told that there is a minimum requirements for a group rate to cover the general admission would be 15 guests at $45.50+6.5% tax per person, plus we would either need a lot of cars or to rent a bus (thus the per person price would go up).

What they say about the tour:

Private guided bus tour 2.5 hours

The Explore KSC Tour gives visitors an insider’s view of the space program from the launch sites of today at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, with a look toward the future of space exploration at Kennedy Space Center, The tour includes up-close views of the launch pads, the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) and the Shuttle Landing Facility.  The tour stops in between the Kennedy Space Center launch pads, offering a close-up photo opportunity, in front of the VAB, on the NASA Causeway where guests are surrounded by myriad rocket launch pads.  Along the way, visitors may see other iconic images of America’s space program including the countdown clock at the Press site, a crawler transporter used to move Apollo moon rockets and space shuttles to the launch pad and the Operations and checkout building were astronauts departed from to travel to the launch pad on the day of their mission.  The tour culminates at the Apollo/Saturn V Center,
The Apollo/Saturn V Center, where dramatic multimedia shows and numerous hands-on displays provide visitors with an inspirational and exhilarating look into America’s quests for the moon. Guests relive the historic launch of Apollo 8 at the Firing Room Theater, then marvel at a monstrous 363’ long Saturn V moon Rocket, the most powerful rocket ever build and one of only 3 Saturn V rockets in Existence, The Apollo Treasure Gallery showcases treasures from the Apollo moon missions, including Apollo 14 Commander Alan Shepard’s spacesuit and the Apollo 14 Command Module, Kitty Hawk.

Up to 50 guests for a private bus. 
Booking times will vary, we will do our very best to accommodate your guests
General admissions required

So please let me know if you are interested, as we get closer we will discuss total price and how people can pay it.

Looking forward to seeing you in Orlando in October.
