Planning & Preparation

19 regroupex 17It turns out that I am not going to be able to get away for the Amoeba Races or the USSVI Convention in Orlando, FL. 

Just one of those years...

I have two rooms reserved at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort from 8/29 to 9/03 at the group rate, one double queen, and one king suite. I have to release these in the next few days so I don't pay for them.

21 regroupex 17If you need a room at the Shingle Creek, let me know so we can work out a swap with the hotel. If I don't hear from you by 1800 on 20 AUG 2021, I'll release these back into the general USSVI room pool.

See you at REGROUPEX 22!
