Room Block Guaranteed Rates ending Sept 1.

Block room rates expire Sept 1st, and then no more guaranteed rooms. As I last checked only 6 of the 20 have been booked. Please help an organizer out and reserve a room before Sept 1 if you are coming. Also we have a second room block at the Graduate up the hill on the Ped Mall if there is a mad rush from this announcement and everyone books a room in the next two hours. A reminder there is a FIDE Blitz tournament out in the Amanas at Millstream Brewery on Sept 8th for those who love Blitz and Beer. Get those NFL games recorded on the TiVo and ignore your friends texts and come out and play some chess.
