After dinner the meeting room will be available until 10:00 pm for socializing

Sunday morning we will have breakfast and then that should wrap it up. If you have time on Sunday I would encourage you to go through the George Bush Presidential Library. It opens at Noon on Sundays and is just 5 minutes from the hotel.

Volunteers attending will be asked to contribute to the cost of the room. No more than $10.00 per volunteer.

Hotel Information

There is a block of rooms at the Ramada Inn for our group for the night of the 25th for those that can stay until Sunday. We are not required to use them and you don't have to stay at this hotel but it is convenient. They have given us a flat rate of $52.00 plus tax for single or doubles. They will hold this block until April 11th. After that date they will release the rooms but you can still get the $52.00 rate if they have rooms available.

To make reservations you can call 1-800-2RAMADA (1-800-272-6232). Tell the operator you are with the TXGenWeb conference group and the rate should be $52.00. Our reservation code is "TXGW". If you have trouble or wish to contact the Ramada Inn College Station directly you may reach them at 1-409-693-9891.

RV Park Information

The only RV park in Bryan/College Station is at the Texas A&M Baseball field called Olsen Field. According to the University plenty of spaces remain for our weekend. The spaces include water & electricity and there is a dump station at the entrance. Spaces are $14.00 per night and reservations may be made over the phone. The University accepts checks or credit cards.

To make a reservation call 409-847-8694 and ask for Stacy.

If anyone has any special requests please let me know. If anyone will be flying in, the hotel offers a free airport shuttle but please let me know if you are coming in by air. American Eagle flies direct from DFW to College Station and Continental Express flies direct from Houston's Bush Intercontinental to College Station.

If you plan to attend please RSVP with the number in your party to Trey Holt.
If you have already indicated you are coming you do not need to RSVP again.
