equipment for the meeting room is on site to rent, it's clean and
secure, there's an Applebee's restaurant in the lobby, you can walk
to a McDonalds, Bob Evans, or Cracker Barrel, you can walk to the Wax
Museum, it's 10 minutes from the airport, it provides free shuttle
bus service to the big mall and lots of other places, there's an
indoor pool, jacuzzi, wading pool, and GAME ROOM inside. whew."

Music Valley Drive
price quoted was $22.95 / tent space.
AND...a little reminder from Alison ('cause I'm STILL too lazy to paraphrase): "People will be able to make reservations
throughout the fair month of May. In June we'll have to assess how many
rooms have filled up (hopefully all 20 by then). Another thing; you have to
be at least 18 to make a reservation, so if you're under 18, you need to
pair up with an old person. ;^)"
Something to keep in mind: Hotel tax is 13.25%! Eeek! Watch out for the little details, friends, and be sure to look at the links at the top of this page!
