however I have also arranged a discount at the Holiday Inn (Menaul &
University) for anyone who prefers to stay at a hotel. The rate for our
event will be $55.00 per night and includes free shuttle service to/from
the airport and to/from the University. The Hotel will extend this rate
whether we have one person or many but they need to know how many plan to
stay there so they can set up the discount rate in their computer for the
event dates. Anyone who wishes to stay at the hotel should contact me
off-list at mariasol @ illuminare.ws.
