Hotel Info for Regional Competition

Our Hotel Logistics team has been busy securing hotel options for our out of town regional competitions…thank you, Trisha Urrea and Heather Biscan, for all of your hard work! 

Please click here to be directed to the Competition Hotel webpage.   Please read the Regional Competition Hotels PDF document carefully.  There is a lot of information being communicated about each option listed in this document.  Make sure you review each hotel’s cancellation policy as you are booking the reservation.

IMPORTANT NOTES:  We were not able to secure group rates for all hotel options. We are not able to secure a block of 65+ rooms at these rates at each hotel…hotels will not allow us to do that. We have smaller blocks of rooms secured at each hotel, some of which are noted as a maximum of 15 rooms on a first come, first served basis. If a special group rate is listed as a booking option and you can not secure the rate for a hotel, please email us at, (include which hotel and rate), and we will get that information to our Hotel Logistics committee for review with the hotel. 

If additional group rates are secured, we will update the document and send out an updated blog post.
