Don't fret about the attrition charge Paul. COMMON charges all attendees who do not stay at a conference hotel an extra $100. So they don't care anymore. Actually this sounds reasonable. My wife just returned from a scrapbooking weekend. If you didn't stay at the hotel, you were charged an extra $10 for the paltry conference room they had. Granted, if you live two blocks from the hotel you might feel ripped, but they gotta pay for the conference rooms somehow. And the person who suggested that COMMON attendance might drop if the cost of lodging continues to exceed the conference, SSHHHH! We don't want COMMON to try to solve that problem by increasing the cost of the conference. :-) Rob Berendt -- "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

Anybody care to join me? To the list: I hope nobody misinterpreted the above statement to mean that I am planning to stay at a non-conference hotel. I intend to get my registration in early enough to be able to stay at the least expensive conference hotel. In order to avoid the attrition charges imposed by hotels for not occupying all of the rooms to which COMMON commits for its conferences, all attendees should stay at one of the hotels listed in the registration materials.
