Nikki Hemphill will coordinate room sharing, so you must contact her before you book a room. If you need a bed, let her suggest roommates for you.

Thank you Kathy Dalsaso for negotiating these amazing rates for us.

There is lodging down the hill in Clarksville (north, along I-40) and Russellville (east, along I-40). The 2-lane winding roads from these towns consume much of an hour to reach The Lodge. Kathy reserved two blocks of rooms in Clarksville: Quality Inn (479) 764-3000 ($65) and Holiday Inn Express (479) 705-7600 ($101). There is also a Hampton Inn and Best Western.

Mount Magazine State Park campground has 18 sites with hookups. Additional campgrounds of Blue Mountain Lake and Cove Lake are nearby. Consider this option; many Highpointers will be there.

The Lodge has a nice restaurant and thirty minutes to the north is Paris, AR, with local restaurants and fast food.

There is limited lodging at Mount Magazine State Park. Rooms and campsites are filling up quick. If you’d like a roommate, contact Nikki Hemphill at greyhost92@yahoo.com or leave her a message at (219) 545-2169. Please consider the motels in nearby Clarksville and Russellville.

When you submit your registration form and check, Guy will respond with an email confirming your registration along with a unique Identification Number assigned to you, along with your t-shirt sizes.

PLEASE bring this email to the convention and present it at the registration table. This will make the registration process move quicker and should eliminate confusion and complaints.

The banquet hall has a legal capacity of around 200. Once our registration reaches the maximum, we won’t be able to allow more inside, therefore, mail your registration to Guy Shaddoxx now! We anticipate this to be a sell out, and because of this limitation there will be NO WALK IN registration at this convention.
