Update IWCS Southeast Regional Winter Woodfest

Arthur Lee

Don’t delay sending in your meeting registration, Lake Yale has a new rule change.
“3 Business Days before Event: A surcharge fee of $25 per person per “Event Day”, which is defined as the stay from check-in to check-out, will be assessed if new attendees are added less than 3 business days prior to the event”. All balance must be paid before keys are administered.
I won’t be able to guarantee a room or meals for anyone that does not notify me that they are coming, before the three days prior to the meeting. All I need is names, days attending and/or meals.
Thanks, Elaine
