The site coordinator and native guide is Alex Polikowsky, who lives near Rochester, Minnesota. She looked at sites in and near Rochester, but the more affordable AND more exciting place turns out to be in Elk River, northwest of Minneapolis, and is The Wild Woods Waterpark Hotel, a Holiday Inn. But don't make a reservation yet. The contract is still being discussed.
The dates will be May 2-5, 2013.
May 2 is a Thursday, and if you show up then, you can settle in, play and start meeting people. If enough people stay Thursday night, they will open the water park.
May 3, Friday, will have a morning session, longish lunch break, and afternoon session. The water park opens at 4:00, and those who want to come back to the conference rooms after dinner to talk or play games can do so.
May 4, Saturday, same schedule but the water park will be open earlier, though by then the kids might be willing to play in the room near the presentations, and do the water park again later.
May 5, Sunday, morning session so those who want to check out can do so.
More information will be forthcoming and registration should be open in early September.
