To all those with rooms reserved at the Parkway Plaza Hotel for the AstroCon2017 conference:

To all those with rooms reserved at the Parkway Plaza Hotel for the AstroCon 2017 conference:

Your hotel room(s) is still reserved, or in other words, none of you have lost your room(s).

Because of a reservation system change, some of the hotel’s reservation information is incomplete and the hotel needs everyone to contact them by May 1st to pay for the entire reservation.  For most attendees staying 6-7 nights, this will be $600-$700 plus taxes.  The minimum stay is 4 nights for $400 plus taxes.

Please call the hotel at 1-307-235-1777, Option 0 for reservations, and give them your credit/debit card number to pay for your room(s).  Please identify that you are in the ASTROCON block of rooms.

 We were aware of the May 1stdeadline as part of a contract with a new owner/manager of the Parkway a few months ago.  Our mistake was not informing all of you about this sooner and we are very sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

 We also want to make sure that we have a correct telephone number for everyone, as a representative of the hotel owner wants to reach out in an effort to confirm everyone’s reservation.

 If you have concerns after contacting the Parkway Plaza Hotel, please contact ASTROCON ASAP.  We look forward to meeting all registered guests at ASTROCON!

Outer Space Pals #6

For a while now, everyone involved in promoting the August 21, 2017, total solar eclipse has been thinking up new ways to reach wider and more varied audiences. Holley and Michael Bakich are no exception. Even though they're hosting the largest event in 2017, they want to reach a diverse group of people. This means kids, too! That's what Outer Space Pals is all about. It's an introduction — in the simplest terms — to our solar system, to how objects in space move, and (most importantly) to the August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse
