We're just a few days away...!

Just a few updates:

1. The Innovative Online Learning Workshop has been canceled. Participants were contacted individually--but if you were planning to add this workshop at the last minute, please choose another.

2. There are a FEW spots left for the banquet at Harley-Davidson on Saturday night. Register ASAP if you want to be there. We will NOT have tickets available at the door.

3. My contact number from Tuesday on will be 414.614.3266--I will be at the Hilton so you can find me if you need anything.

4. The Hilton was able to add a few additional rooms at the conference rate for the 6, 7, and 8th. Contact them directly.

5. Water park passes will be made available for a very reduced fee, so bring your suits along and have some fun. Charlie Ess promises to do some major slip n' sliding for everyone's enjoyment.

Also--Repeating the note sent from Erin, our conference assistant follows: Be sure to come by the Ale House on Wednesday night; it promises to be a great gathering.

Looking forward to welcoming you to Milwaukee!

Getting together before the conference “officially” begins:
For those of you arriving Tuesday night, places nearby that we would suggest getting together are the Old German Beer Hall (oldgermanbeerhall.com) or Turner Hall (historicturner.com).  
On Wednesday night from 7-10pm, we have reserved the downstairs bar area of the Milwaukee Ale House (http://ale-house.com/alehouse/)!  This is right on the Milwaukee River, about six blocks from the conference hotel.  If the weather is nice, they will also allow us to spill out on the deck.  There will be three menu options for dinner, all options for appetizers, and they brew their own beer!  This will be on your own monetarily, unfortunately – and will be a cash only event.  We REALLY hope to see a lot of you there!  It will be a really great informal way of breaking the ice before we all have to pretend to be professional.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me (Erin) at 612-701-3714 or Elizabeth at 414-614-3266 (but preferably before 5pm US central time) – or email ehvizdak at uwm.edu.

Thanks everyone, looking forward to next week!!
