HOUSING. Our housing coordinator is the wonderful Lisa Tamres. She gotten housing for people for this event and for Pitt Stop many times, and she will take good care of you.

A few notes from Lisa on priorities and such:

You will be assigned housing after being paid for the weekend, first come first serve. It is likely we can house everyone, even if you are coming for part of the weekend, but full registration people will have first priority. People can contact me and sign up any time after registering, but housing won’t be assigned until the week before the event.
