Labour Day is the traditional time, but if there is a good enough reason the date can be somewhat flexible. In 2001 it was a few weeks later to incorporate some time at the Saltflats in Utah.Yes, but it doesn't have to be, according to Fred. *shrug*
I think, for Chattanooga(-ish), we actually looked at a couple mountain lodges with some cabin lodging, plus conference facilities, and everything was too far from Chattanooga (or civilization), and the things that were in our price range either were a total dump and didn't have enough parking, or were run by crazy religious extremists that had onerous restrictions on the events that could occur.What about renting out a "lot" of cabins? I know we rented a cabin for a week out there and it slept 8. It was like 1000 bucks for the week. There were about 15-20 cabins on that mountain side. Some holding a few more.
Denver is a great area...mountains to the west, flat to the east & a LOT of hotel choicesI would love to see something happen in Denver (or somewhere in CO). We've done a bit of research and it's a good candidate, although I don't know very much about that area. There are hotels available, prices are reasonable and I think it's a place a lot of people would like to explore.
The Denver area sounds good to me. It's within a 1 day drive for me and it's a lot more centrally located than the west coast, so we could probably get more people to travel from the eastern states.Denver is a great area...mountains to the west, flat to the east & a LOT of hotel choices
I've mainly used sofa/couch, but have occasionally used either of the other two. My grandmother was from Kansas and I recall her using them also.

How many rooms in the hotel, how many spaces in the parking lot?
It looks like there's just a few suites in the whole facility (and prices on most of them are a bit high for what a fest hotel usually is in), and it's set up mainly as an event facility plus a few suites for on-site guests, with most conference-goers being off-site? Typically, Fest has been held in hotels that have enough space to allow most or all attendees to stay at the host hotel.
