*** Contest University USA 2015 will be held in Dayton - at the Crowne Plaza
- on Thursday May 14, 2015 ***

If you stayed at the Crowne Plaza (CP) this past May (Dayton 2014) and you
filled out a Dayton CP 2015 reservation form (left under your door on
check-out day) and dropped it off at the registration desk, then you should
already have an email confirmation (with a confirmation number) from the
Crowne Plaza for your 2015 reservation. You do not need to call or reconfirm
on Monday, August 4 if you already have a reservation for 2015 from the
under the door reservation form.

If you would like to make a reservation for Dayton 2015 - the remaining
Crowne Plaza rooms will be available for reservations starting this coming
Monday, August 4, at 9:00 AM EDT (eastern USA time). I have negotiated the
base room rate for the Contest Group Code CON at $141.00 per night (single
King or Double) for 2015. This is a $2.00 increase from the 2014 rate.

The 2015 Dayton Hamvention week dates are:

Wednesday May 13, 2015 CTU Registration
Thursday May 14, 2015 CTU all day and RTTY Contest Dinner
Friday May 15, 2015 Hamvention, Top Band Dinner + Spurious Emissions Band
Saturday May 16, 2015 Hamvention and Contest Dinner
Sunday May 17, 2015 Hamvention

The quickest way to get in the Crowne Plaza contest room block is via the
website below. Starting this coming Monday morning, August 4, 2014 at 9:00
AM eastern daylight time (1300 GMT) go to:


You must use the Contest Group Code CON when you make your reservation.
This special Contest Group Code will not work if you try to use it before
9:00 AM EDT on August 4, 2014 or after all of the rooms are sold out. Your
reservation can only be made starting after 9:00 AM EDT on Monday, August 4
and only with the CON Group Code.

You may also call the reservation line - use the special CON Group Code -
after 9:00 AM EDT on Monday August 4, 2014. 1-800-227-6963 or 937-229-9853

I expect the hotel will sell out very very quickly - so please plan your
reservation submission accordingly.

Hope to see you in Dayton 2015!
