When: The official days are Saturday, 9 Nov, & departing on Tuesday, 12 Nov.

Extra Days? The hotel has included some extra days in our group package beyond the start and the end of the weekend just in case people have different travel plans and want this great rate for those days also.

Please tell Harry if you are attending. One of the biggest challenges in hosting a function like this is estimating the number of people attending. Rooms need to be blocked out, meals and travel arrangements need to be coordinated, etc. If you think you might be able to attend, please send Harry an email so he can do a probable attendance list.
