Do I need to register for the Convention once I am checked in?

  • Yes. Registration will be open at the Grand Summit Hotel in the Kokopelli Ballroom Foyer at the following dates and times.
  • Thursday, July 13th: 1-7pm
    Friday, July 14th: 7:30am-6pm
    Saturday, July 15th: 8am-5pm
    Sunday, July 16th: 8am-5pm

What should I wear at the Convention?

  • Casual attire. Layers are recommended as it will be cool in the evening and warm during the day.

What else should I bring?

  • Please bring sunscreen, bug spray, hats and/or bandanas, and be sure to drink plenty of water.
  • The Grand Summit Hotel sits at 6,600 feet in elevation which is much higher than the majority of us are used to.  Start drinking lots of water before you arrive and stay hydrated throughout your trip because it helps your body acclimate to the altitude faster.  Be cautious drinking alcohol as it can suppress breathing rates which causes lower levels of oxygen in the blood.
