The 2008 Highpointers Convention will be Wednesday, September 10 through breakfast on Saturday, September 13 at Humphreys Peak in Arizona.
You will note that this is the first time a convention has been on a weekday (the banquet will be on a Friday rather than the traditional Saturday — this was done because of U.S. Forest rules restricting organized group access to the mountain on weekends).
The final event will be the pancake breakfast on Saturday morning at the Snow Bowl.

Here’s some notes from Rick Hartman:
“Arizona 2008” has two Hotels that blocked rooms for September 9 (T), 10 (W), 11(Th), and 12 (F) of 2008.Radisson Woodlands Hotel located at 1175 W. Route 66, Flagstaff, AZ 86001. Rates are: $99.00 per night/plus taxes.
Please note these lodges were selected as they were central within Flagstaff, they are three city blocks apart and are not situated near the BNSF railroad grade crossings.
The average for trains through Flagstaff is one every 15 minutes, thus this is an important consideration! Also, Flagstaff is a college and tourist town, thus rooms are at a premium. If you decide to lodge on your own, please keep in mind the east/west railroad corridor, for you may not have a true bargain.
