Reminder - New Meeting Location Beginning 30 May

REMINDER:  New permanent meeting location - Embassy Suites on Hampden.

Beginning next week (Tuesday, 30 May), our new permanent meeting location is the Embassy Suites Denver Southeast, at 7525 East Hampden Avenue, Denver, CO 80231.

The hotel is located 1 mile east of I-25, on the north side of Hampden, near Tamarac Square.  Parking is free.  We will meet in the Fourteener's Room.  Upon entering the hotel, proceed straight ahead to the large central atrium.  As you enter that area, the Fourteener's Room will be on your left.

Buffet-style breakfast will be available for purchase but is not a condition of attendance.  To purchase breakfast, pay at the front desk and let them know you're with the Academy Biznet group, which will get you the discounted breakfast prices -- $11.95 for the full hot breakfast, and $7.95 for cold breakfast (anything not prepared as you wait). 

This change is prompted by the less favorable situation at the Marriott in recent months, since the completion of their full renovation.  Their new coffee shop is marginally acceptable, but the parking situation is not.  Parking at the Marriott is free for the first hour, then $10.  We pursued an accommodation from the hotel, but the solutions offered were inconvenient or unreliable.  With few exceptions, surrounding lots are no longer available, or appear to be only temporarily available.  After approximately 20 years at the Marriott, we were forced to consider other options.  Many thanks to Kurt Schlaefer (USAFA '70) for finding our new venue (Embassy Suites).

Have a great weekend.
