On this site you will find those things to make your trip to Reno a pleasure. First, if you have questions or comments please click on one of the links below to talk to the expert that can help you. Of course if you are unsure who can best serve you please contact the General Chair (that's ME) at the link below. We promise to get back to you as soon as possible. Now for the important stuff. What should you do first? Why Register of course. You can do that by downloadinig our Registration form or use our Online Registration page. Either way please be sure to include your name(s) clearly so we can have your own keepsake badge available when you get to Reno. Now the rest of the links should make sense and lead you to the heart of our dance. As always this is a growing site so as we get closer to the dance the more that we will have up here so come back often


A quick note! There has been some confusion about the shuttle from the airport. The Row shuttle runs from airport approximately every 20 minutes.  It is a combined shuttle for all three hotels and there is no charge.

Thanks! Phil and Sue Harris, General Chair
