The Beacon Society is proud to be the Official Charity of 221B Con in Atlanta on April 4-6. We’ll have a “Teaching Sherlock” panel with Beacon Award winners Shannon Carlisle (2013) and Tim Greer (2014) along with cartoonist Chris Schweizer and Beaconeers Marilynne McKay and Marino Alvarez. Look for the special 221B Con Souvenir Edition of “Silver Blaze”!
As of today there are a very few rooms left at the host hotel for transient guests. It is apparently hotel policy to hold back a handful. However they are not within our room block. These rooms cost $139 a night (plus tax). If you wish to stay at the host hotel for this cost, you may, but you will not get the free internet that our members receive.
We are in negotiations for an overflow hotel that is a mile and a half away. There will be free shuttle service between the hotels. As soon as we have booking information we will post a link to our website and social medias. Please note that to get the $89 rate and free internet at the overflow hotel you will need to book by March 13th.
More information to follow about both the overflow and host hotel particulars. Stay tuned!
They have added a few more King rooms to the room block. We will see about adding more when our rep can get to the hotel (Yay! Snow in Atlanta closing roads down). We will get information to you as soon as we have it.
