Clarification for those reserving rooms for the July National Tournament in Las Vegas….

The previously advertised room rates were $55 (Fri-Sat) and $48 (Sun.-Thurs.). The real room rates are $55 (plus tax, Fri & Sat.) and $29 (plus tax, Sun.-Thurs.). The "$48" was provided for budgeting purposes to assist with the playing room costs (as was done last year). These are still excellent rates for a strip hotel. There is a $15 per weekday differential for players. So, players will need to provide an additional $75 per player at registration, as the hotel will not collect this for us. Any non-playing guests with separate rooms will only have to pay $29 plus tax for weekdays. nnGerry Lopez has bargained good rates for us, and he was the only one who offered a National bid. Gerry tells me this will be his last Las Vegas bid, so please consider supporting what will probably conclude the "Las Vegas era" in checkers.n nRegarding the call-in number 1-800-634-6575, note that the Plaza Hotel handles the room reservations for the Vegas Club, which does not have their own reservations line (same owner for both hotels).n
