Hello everyone,   

The hotels are taking reservations now.    I'm sure Darren will post the rest of the specifics about entry and eligibility soon.  Gordon is still working on the final prices for the shuttle from Salt Lake.  We'll get that information soon.  Let us know if you are in a extreme financial situation, we can help you find alternate rooming arrangements.   If there are any other questions I can answer at the host, please let me know.

	1. The tournament hotel is the 
 Red Lion Hotel Pocatello
1555 Pocatello Creek Road
All participants are encouraged to
stay at the Red Lion. Pre-Tournament functions, receptions, the first awards
assembly and elimination rounds will occur at the Red Lion Hotel.
Rooms are $79.95 per night for 2 Double Beds or 1 King Bed
Non-Smoking.  The hotel has graciously
offered to extend this rate to anyone coming in up to 2 days before the 20th (registration day) and/or 2 days after the final event on the 24th (final elimination day).
Red Lion Hotel Pocatello is conveniently located in the heart of Pocatello,
Southeast Idaho?s regional center for shopping, education, medical care and
cultural activities. Golf, water sports, skiing, snowmobiling, casino gambling
and bingo are just some of the activities to enjoy while in the area. 
Hotel Amenities include a
restaurant, lounge, free parking, free airport shuttle (Pocatello airport),
business center, free high speed internet, whirlpool/spa and fitness facility.
Reservations should be made before March
1st, 2009.  
Reservations may be made by
calling 208-233-2200
Please identify yourself as members of our group:CEDA, in
order to get the Group rate and to have the hotel credit the block of rooms to
	1. The overflow hotel for CEDA Nationals is the 
Holiday Inn in
1399 Bench Road, Pocatello
The Holiday Inn is a short walk (3-5 minutes) from the Red
Lion.  While no official tournament
events are taking place at the Holiday Inn, they have blocked a number of rooms
for CEDA at the rate of $73.00 per night for 2 Queen Beds or 1 King Bed from
1-4 students. The Holiday Inn houses and restaurant and
lounge, provides free parking, free wireless internet, a fitness facility, a
pool & hot tub.
You may make reservations at the Holiday Inn by calling
208-282-3155.  Ask for the CEDA room
block. Reservations should be made before February 26th, 2009.
Food:There are a number of convenient dining options near both the
ISU campus and the hotels.  Sarah has put
together a dining list which will be posted shortly.  Check out the google maps that are included.
Car Rental:The major car rental agencies are available at the Salt
Lake City airport.
Air Travel:  Flying in to Salt
Lake City would likely be your best bet.  They have all the major carriers and discount airlines (Southwest and
Jet Blue).  The drive between Salt Lake
City and Pocatello is relatively quick (about 2 hours and 30 minutes) and is a
straight shot on Interstate Highway.  The
drive from the Salt Lake Airport is about the time it takes to change planes
and fly directly into Pocatello.

Subject: [eDebate] CEDA Nationals Questions

Hey All,

Looking for 2 things:

1.  Who do we send CEDA eligibility info to?  I know this deadline is quickly approaching, but if something about who these forms are sent to was posted I must have missed it.

2.  When should we expect an invite with hotel information, rates, etc.?  I ask for purposes of planning my expenditures for the rest of the season, and it is difficult to do so without knowing how much CEDA Nationals will cost.
