No Lottery this year. On Oct 1 regular DoubleTree reservations for hotel rooms will go through the DoubleTree booking system – you will be able to book a room online or call the hotel directly from that day on to reserve one room. The hotel is contracted to have blacked out all rooms this whole weekend for us to reserve.
For a specific room number assignment or a special-needs room, please contact special-needspantheaconcom, starting in August. Special-needs rooms include families with small children and physically challenged people. (We reserve the right to jury this area, if you have questions please email special-needspantheaconcom to be considered for this block.) Any DoubleTree hotel rooms reserved before Oct 1 will be void. No more than one room reservation per person will be allowed.
Overflow hotels – We plan to contract with various hotels for some blocks of discounted rooms. Let us know your favorite hotels. Details will be posted on the website and in the next newsletter as we get them.
