GrangeCon8 will be held at the Eden Resort July 3 -July 5. We reserved one of the 2 floor Villas, located behind the outdoor pool. Barring any unforeseen problems we will have the same Villa that we had for GrangeCon7: 515. Our overflow suite will be right below the main suite, 516. There will be signs on the doors of all suites that are being used for GrangeCon. The Villas have a large communal space, and open stairway to the 2nd floor, and a full kitchen, which is convenient for the bake-off.

Location: Check this page for updates on the rooms we will be in. At this point, same rooms as last year, with the main location being Villa 515 and overflow in the suite right below. There will be GRANGECON8 signs on the doors.

Registration fee:

** Registration is $25 per person for the weekend or $10 per person for

a day. We do not accept credit cards. Cash or check only.

GrangeCon8 will begin on Thursday July 3 at 4pm and will end on Saturday at around midnight. Sunday morning will be cleaning and packing as check out is at noon.
