Hotel Accommodations:
Unfortunately, due to a college wrestling finals event, there is not a room block set-up at any specific hotel. There are a number of hotels located very close to the training site.  However, seminar registrants will need to make their own lodging arrangements.  It is recommended that you seek the government rate of $125.00/night at a hotel, and that you make your lodging arrangements ASAP.
