Are you booked gosfield? I ask b/c we just booked and found that many hotels require payment in full up front upon reserving your room and it is non-refundable. We booked at Hotel St. Marie and they only require a $200 deposit initially with payment in full due in March. Don't wait too long to book a room, the prices are going up and the inventory is getting tight! Have fun!

The day-by-day schedule will be out in late January. You'll at least least know who's playing what day then. The hour-by-hour schedule ("the cubes") will be out in late March.
