Gary's PDF presentation was split into two parts: AIBF 2023_1.pdf and AIBF 2023_2.pdf

The following message is from Gary R. Hook on February 9, 2023:

In summary, we're looking at an Airbnb/VRBO rental. These rentals, for this event, do not provide for a 100% refund upon cancellation. Plus, since it's a group, a 100% commitment is required; any changes would mean increased cost for other attendees, and that would be uncool. Also, we need to decide now, or try again next year.

If you are interested in joining us, you'll need to provide the following directly to Gary:

  • How many in party (i.e. how many bedrooms)
  • Dates of attendance
  • Budget for accommodations ($$ per room per night)
  • Contact information, including cell phone (for text message questions: clarity, confirmation, etc)

Please review the presentation/slides and send an email directly to Gary by Feb. 19.

To repeat a statement from the presentation: it may already be too late. But there's interest, so let's try!
