    Greetings Everyone,

    There have been a few questions regarding reservations for the 2018 Symposium in Seattle. We have a block of rooms reserved beginning September 20 through the 24th.

    The rate is $119 per night. I believe that if you book through the website you can get the same rate if you are coming earlier or decide to stay longer in Seattle.

    As a reminder, we are looking for Percha Kulcha presenters. These presentations are 20 pictures and 20 seconds of dialogue per picture. You only need to speak for about 7 minutes. It can be anything that you wish to share with the group. I am looking for 10 to 15 presenters. You may contact me if you have any questions. My email address is braddavis@netins.net.

    Wishing each of you a great spring and summer,


    Brad Davis
