Housing – We will be staying at the Days Inn in Penticton, BC. We will drive to the Nickel Plate Nordic Center from the hotel. Rooms have 2 queen beds. Cost is $320.98 for the room, tax recovery charges and service fees/charges. I have booked four rooms. Send $320.98 to Lynn Alderson to secure a room. If you cancel, I need 72 hours’ notice to allow me adequate time to cancel the room so there are no charges. Or you may make your own reservations with Days Inn at (844) 589-5941. If you decide to book your own room do not delay, as of October, most of the rooms are booked for March 2020.

Meals – Breakfast is served at the hotel. For lunch bring your own food. Dinner will be at a restaurant.

Please advise me if you plan to attend this trip and I will try to connect people with each other if you would like to share a room or a ride.
