     A new web page and web form has been created on the conference website.  El Paso hotel and travel information as well as a shuttle request form are provided.  Please let us know if you require a shuttle from El Paso to/from Cloudcroft on your travel days, along with your flight information, by filling out the web form.  We are currently setting up the shuttle schedule, and it is very helpful to know who is coming when so we can group people together for the shuttles.
     When making your travel plans, please remember that Cloudcroft is 110mi/177km from El Paso, and travel via shuttle bus is 2 hours.  We do have a special opening reception, Sunday, October 13th, and if you wish to catch the performance, please be sure to arrive early to Cloudcroft.
