Wondering if anyone knows when they will announce the regional conventions. Every year they always announced it the first service meeting of January. I tied in last night by phone as my husband insists on going I DO NOT and never will again but I like to book a room now and I REFUSE to use their list. I got burned so badly by doing that. My husband got really sick about three weeks from the convention and was in the hospital. I called to cancel the room and they tried to charge me for all three nights anyway, as the said I used a booking sight to reserve the room. I said NO I used the Watchtower list and they said that is like using Kayak or Priceline and that the hotel DOES NOT REFUND ANY reserved rooms when you book with a place like them and they would charge my card all three nights PERIOD!
I was so blown and way and stressed here we had these huge doctor's bills and now this. Anyway after begging them they finally agreed to charge us for only one night not three. Now I gave them three weeks notice so you know that they could easily fill that room, that was just free money for the hotel. Anyway lesson learned NEVER USE THE WATCHTOWER LIST.
So back to my question, I just checked out the official WT sight and I only find 2015 Regional conventions, God forbid I call them District conventions or the dreaded hateful word Assembly's which clearly shows you are apostate, because I kid you not that happened to me when I was still a very devote JW. I was in field service and I said the word assembly and I was called an apostate in the car group.
Got of love the love of the "friends" and sorry for my ranting just hate the stupid hoops you seem to have to jump through.
