We have about 90-100 rooms reserved.
 

NOTE: We have two additional hotels that are set to accommodate us. They are within walking distance of each other and about 1-2 miles south of Aladdin temple.

 
Secondary hotel is Courtyard by Marriott

We have a minimum of 50 rooms reserved.
 
Third hotel is Fairfield Inn and Suites

Contact here is the same as Courtyard. We have at least 50 rooms here reserved.
 

Approximate room prices are $135 at the Drury and $154 at the other two. There are suites available and these must be booked separate with a slight increase over the regular rooms. Booking of rooms should be handled by individuals direct. Alcohol is permitted in the rooms but discouraged in the lobby areas. The deadline for making your reservations is now up until 2 months out, when they can’t guarantee availability. So, the cut off date given us is until July 18, 2019 for a guaranteed room.

 

All of these hotels are accommodating and can increase availability if they have room and bookings are early enough. We will have trailer space at all the hotels with overflow being handled at Aladdin Shrine Temple. Aladdin will assist with transportation needs as much as possible.

WHAT WE KNOW NOW UPDATED 07/23/2019
We plan on having a pub crawl on Thursday evening - TBA
Pistol shooting competition - Friday commencing at about 1 P.M.

Parade after glow on Saturday September 21st will follow the parade that is set for about 9 A.M. and called Arts in the Alley. We will hold the after glow at Aladdin. The charge will be minimal and pleasing so we can wash the desert dust from our throats.

We have planned on a Ceremonial session Saturday commencing at approximately 3 P.M.

The hotel hospitality room will be officially held in the Drury Inn and the Market place will be in the Courtyard hotel. These are next to each other with easy access on foot. The Drury and Fairfield both have complimentary breakfast features.

As in the past, the business session will be on Thursday morning, followed by seminar sessions in the afternoon. And, station dinners will be held Thursday evening (about 7 P.M.) at Aladdin following the “crawl”. Friday will be the completions’ ending with hospitality and the GLSA banquet held at Aladdin temple.

There is planned a short board meeting for the Board Sunday the 22nd in the Drury Inn starting at approximately 9 A.M.

We do plan on having security staff working the area just to make sure equipment stays secure with parked during off hours. We are anxious to host and entertain all of you and show you Buckeye hospitality and our temple. Grove City will extend a warm welcome for this session and is also looking forward to us being in their city, which is also about 10 miles southwest of Columbus city limits.
