Warm greetings on this chilly day! I would like to inform you all about a semi-private "hotel camping" arrangement for March Crown. While the West has a grand and admirable tradition of camping together under the stars, there are some of us who for our own array of reasons prefer to spend those nights indoors. In light of this fact, I have arranged for a block of rooms to be set aside at the Hampton Inn in Red Bluff, CA. This hotel is a mere 2.5 miles from the March Crown site at the Tehama District Fairgrounds. More information about the hotel itself can be found here:
The general price per night is $84 with suites being $10 more. The price reduction to $79/night will only go into effect when we have 15 rooms reserved under our group's name. We have about 10 interested parties right now, so if you'd like to be a part of the group and work towards the price reduction, please 1) make a reservation with the hotel with "SCA" as the Group/Convention Code, and 2) notify me at the e-mail address this is coming from so I can keep a running tally. Please also try to make your reservations before February 23, as the hotel will release any unreserved rooms in the block after that date.
If you have any questions about this arrangement, please do not hesitate to contact me. Feel free to pass this information on to any other interested parties or local lists. I only ask that this information NOT be sent out to the SCA-West list, as this is NOT an official SCA arrangement.
Yours in service,
