GrangeCon9 will be held at the Eden Resort March 6-8.  All new!  Since the weather outside is frightful but the fire is so delightful…Really.  We are moving into the main building and the suite has a fireplace.  We reserved one of the new 2 bedroom Premier Suites on the 3rd floor.  Our overflow suite will be next door in one of the original King Suites.  There will be signs on the doors of all suites that are being used for GrangeCon. The Premier Suites feature a large communal space with L shaped sofa.  The full kitchen is open to the rest of the communal area eliminating that dead end we had in the Villa kitchen that was easy to get stuck in.  The suites are at the rear of the building so park in the back lot and come in the door at the rear corner near the Villas.  A brand new elevator is right there.  When you get off the GrangeCon suite is the first door around the corner.

Being inside means that even if it “the weather outside is frightful” you can get to the pool & hot tub in comfort, or go to the bar or restaurant. The new suites are beautifully decorated.

Location:  
Check this page for confirmation of room number. At this point we have Room 353 reserved..There will be GRANGECON9 signs on the doors.
