      We have negotiated a special room rate with the hotel of $85/night for this event. We will provide further instructions for making reservations as part of the event block once everything is set up. (Watch this space for updates or check the KWAR/KWCS web site for further information!)
      This is a non-smoking hotel. A complimentary hotel shuttle is available from the Philadelphia Airport and runs every half hour.
      Since the event is over Columbus Day weekend, if you choose to arrive Thursday or not leave until Monday, the special rate can be extended to apply to those nights.
      We have reserved an open terrace area for the merchants on Saturday. They layout of this hotel is such that there are hotel suites just off the terrace (complete with windows) that can be used for merchant space as well should merchants choose to reserve those rooms individually. On the terrace, we must rent tables from the hotel and unfortunately you cannot bring your own tables. If merchanting from a room, however, there is no such requirement. Merchants must commit by September 1st in order to guarantee a space. Please contact Corinna the Lost at greenness@... for additional information.
