NFB of Kentucky 2010 State Convention Information

Good Morning Friends,

It is time to start thinking about the 2010 State Convention of the NFB of
Kentucky. This year's event will take place the weekend of September 24, 25
and 26 at the Holiday Inn Hurstbourne, phone 426-2600. Room rates are $84
per night plus tax. When making your reservation be sure to let the operator
know that you are with NFB of Kentucky so that you can take advantage of our
rates. Reservations MUST be made no later than September 3rd! Our block of
rooms WILL be released after this date. In years past we have been told that
if rooms were available in the hotel that reservations made after the cutoff
date would be honored. This will not be the case this year. With the
Equestrian Games in Lexington people are scrambling to find accommodations
as far west as Louisville and beyond. In order to vote at this year's
convention your dues must be paid by August 1st. We are still ironing out
details so stay tuned.

We are just back from the national convention in Dallas. It was a really
good convention and those of us from Kentucky had an enjoyable time. In case
you don't know the 2011 convention will be held in Orlando, Florida. I know
without a doubt that it will be a record-breaker. The total registration for
this year was close to 2,500. Not bad for Dallas.
