Limited home hospitality is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Although we will try, we simply can not guarantee that we will be able to provide hospitality to everyone who requests it. Request hospitality through the registration process. The later you register, the less likely we'll be able to place you.

If you are attending part time, you can request hospitality by emailing However, those who preregister for the full weekend will have priority over those attending part time.
