Todd suggests two motels in Wayne. "The Cobblestone Inn (402-833-1300), which will be about $85 a night (newer hotel with pool and I believe a breakfast, but I plan on supplying that anyway), or the Super 8 (402-375-4898), which will be about $55 a night. If we decide to use one exclusively, both places indicated that they could give us an even better rate."
Attending the conference is FREE for GPPA members. If not a member, remember dues are $10. You can barely eat at McDonalds for that. Contact me if you have questions.
**You don't have to have fulldome to present or to attend. We are here to support the Planetariums of the Great Plains.**
**Come to Wayne and join us for the conversation, the food and the learning.**
