The Marriott has acknowledged our cancelation and has voided our contract without further penalty; for that, we are grateful.
I have already sent an email to the currently registered attendees, but in case you are among that number and didn’t see it yet, guests will need to call in and cancel their reservations individually–their number is (215) 625-2900.
Reservations may be canceled up to 72 hours before the beginning of the first night’s stay (4pm, Dec 29) without incurring a charge; after that, one night’s stay will be charged.
If you feel at all able, please take the time to express your opinions about Marriott’s practices when you call; they should be made to hear each and every one of our individual voices.
We are already on the hunt for a new host hotel; a number of RFPs have already been submitted as of this morning. In the meantime, we have temporarily suspended new registrations until we have another hotel locked in. We will keep everyone apprised of our progress and report back immediately when registration is online again.
We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to quickly resolve this matter and get back on track for an amazing New Year’s celebration!
Hugs, boy Lee Captain / Tri-Cen XX Chair Philadelphians MC
Due to recent revelations about the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown’s decision to host the annual convention of the national extremist hate group “Moms for Liberty” the Philadelphians MC has severed ties with Marriott and will not be using them to host Tri-Cen XX or future events. The Philadelphians MC’s official statement can be found at this link. New registrations have been temporarily suspended as the Philadelphians MC work to secure a new host hotel for the event. Please stay tuned for more details as the situation develops.
RUN PASS SALES HAVE RESUMED!! The source of the malfunction was found and addressed, and the erroneous transactions have been corrected. PLEASE NOTE: If you experience network lag or slowness when clicking the final button in the registration process (where your card gets charged), DO NOT CLICK THE BUTTON MORE THAN ONCE. The form is coded to reject multiple button clicks, but in rare cases, network lag may prevent those safeguards from working, and you may be charged multiple times. This is a very rare occurrence, and if it happens, we can process refunds for the erroneous charges, but to avoid the ordeal in the first place, please just remember to ONLY CLICK ONCE.
IN LIGHT OF THE TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF TICKET SALES, THE EARLY REGISTRATION PERIOD HAS BEEN EXTENDED. DISCOUNT RUN PASSES CAN BE PURCHASED UNTIL MIDNIGHT ON APRIL 9TH.
PLEASE STAND BY: We are temporarily suspending run pass sales due to a malfunction in the ticketing platform payment system. We will resume sales and send out another update once we have assurance that the problem has been fixed, and we will extend the early registration deadline accordingly. We greatly apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience. Thanks! (If you haven’t joined the Tri-Cen XX mailing list, you can do so at the bottom of our official Tri-Cen XX event page.)
For those who were able to attend Bucks MC’s Santa Saturday this past weekend, you may have noticed some of these cards floating around:
The Philadelphians MC’s signature club run is finally returning in its true, original form–an irreverently debaucherous and outrageously fun New Year’s party!
And the timing couldn’t be more perfect — as the 50th Anniversary of the Philadelphians MC is fast approaching in 2024, Tri-Cen XX will officially be themed “Celebrating the Golden Age of Inappropriate Public Behavior”!
So make plans to join us next year for a weekend-long Philadelphians-style celebration of brotherly love as we ring in 2024 and revel in the past 50 years of our illustrious (and notorious) history!
In September 2021, the club experimented with meeting once a month in person and once a month online in the Zoom Room. However, the prevalence of the Delta variant saw us return to Zoom meetings for the foreseeable future. See our Meetings page for more details.
