Good afternoon Ladies and Gentemen,
We have been informed by the hotel that the renovations taking place on the 5th floor have not been completed as yet. To that end, the hotel has graciously migrated our party to the first floor. We will have a comparable suite for the common area, those with reservations (specifically certain rooms on 5th floor) will be placed in similar room types on the first floor. This also affects those folks that have reservations associated with the Chrononaut Cotillion.  The hotel is striving to keep our group of folks staying at the hotel together on one wing of the hotel. Thank you for your attention in this minor change in venue.

It is time once again to plan Summer SACC... It will be held at The Holiday Inn Northwest, the weekend of August 29 thru September 1.  We have the Parlor Suite on 5th Floor (opposite end of the hall from our usual ConSuite), that would be Rooms 529, 531, 535. We also have the Minnesota Room for gaming all weekend long. Remember, this is a potluck event, so bring things to share... Meals may happen, but are not guaranteed, so plan accordingly. There is also a small room block under DMSFS Summer SACC.  There may be some other activities happening, stay tuned for further information.
