Exactly There are ups and downs to either scenario. But as we have learned over the years trying to keep it in one hotel has always been what we WANTED to do. So at the end of last years convention we sat down and took a hard look at the Holiday Inn for this. Room is big enough even for the largest crowd we have ever had and they were good to us with all accommodations across the board. Good room and meeting space prices as well as allowing us to use outside catering or even cook on our own <they got a GREAT grilling area> So that's the route we took this year. Try and keep everyone in one hotel. Look forward to seeing you there again this year !!
