Major Hotel News/Changes

I know it's been mentioned as part of other longer posts about different topics, but figured it worth spelling this out loud and clear as it's a big change . . .

The Pool Area at the hotel is being remodeled so Minicon won't have use of any of the rooms surrounding the pool (and if you reserved a room down there, you'll need to move to a different room). As I understand it, Minicon didn't learn about the remodeling and changes until quite recently (a couple of weeks ago).

If I read things right (and someone from the concom please correct me ASAP if I'm wrong), almost all Minicon activities will now be in the North/short tower, though we'll also still have the Bloomington and Edina Rooms (which are located more or less between the north and south towers).

As I understand it, the consuite will be on the 8th floor of the North tower, in the "Manager's Apartment" space that was used as the Minneapolis in '73 party suite at least a couple of times during the "big Minicon" era.

The bar will be on the 7th floor of the North Tower.

Room parties will be on the 6th floor of the North tower.

Art show, dealer's room, most programming, all that good stuff will be located in the Atrium and Plaza rooms on the two lowest levels of the North Tower. I'm assuming Registration will be in that open atrium area space down there (as it was a few years back).

If you've reserved a room in the big/South tower (the tower accessed via the elevators closest to the front desk), I'm assuming the hotel staff will be nice about letting you change your reservation to somewhere in the North tower if you'd like to be closer to the con.

quadong's post about volunteering and the programming grids that mle292 posted about have more specifics on what's where.
