SCAM Convention '08 HOTEL UPDATE

From our Chairman, Allen Young-

I received an update from the SCAM '08 Convention hotel (Columbia Marriott) on Wednesday afternoon, they actually oversold by over 30 rooms due to the Republican Primary being held here. The hotel is completely SOLD OUT.

All events will still be at the Marriott. Some attendees may be shifted to the Courtyard (the former Holiday Inn by the Coliseum). It's nine blocks away, but the hotel will provide complimentary transportation to the Marriott. (directions and info on that hotel is included below).
We're very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause!

Another hotel is two short blocks away (Rodeway Inn) that has offered us lodging at a very reasonable rate.
Their info is below, along with other options.

Watch our website for updates, and THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE!

We'll take good care of you!!!
