Upon Arrival:

Once you arrive at Sleeping Lady, take your suitcases into the Guest Check-in center.  We will be storing them in a secure room near the office until we can check in. (leave your poster with  your luggage and then after lunch you will be able to pick them up and hang them)

You will then proceed to the Dining Hall.  After lunch, return to the Guest Check in, pick up your packet and name badge and hang your poster if you have one.   This year we will have an entire room designated for posters.   You will have a break at 4:45 in which you will receive your key and be able to check in.
