Hotel Pool and Information Board

As we chatted about at last Friday's conference planning meeting, it might be a nice option for those attending the conference to be able to create hotel pools to split lodging costs. As such, UPPSA is structuring this post on its blog for those who have yet to book a hotel room and are either looking for a hotel partner(s) to split costs with, or just looking for a cheap hotel rate. All you need to do is add a comment to this post to keep the thread alive and other attendees informed.

So if you find a cheap hotel or hostel rate--post it! (along with the date you found it and where online) If you're in need of a hotel buddy, post your contact information.

Some may feel squeamish about eating it, but rabbit has a fan base that grows as cooks discover how easy they are to raise — and how good the meat tastes.
