THATCamp SE Hotels announced

There are big things afoot here in the land of THATCamp Southeast planning, including the recent announcement of campers. Today brings news about the two THATCamp Southeast hotels.

We have reserved a limited number of rooms at a conference rate of $76.00 plus tax/night for single/double occupancy at the Emory Inn (not the Conference Center; scroll down to read about the Inn). Accepted campers will need to make hotel reservations no later than 10 February to guarantee they will get the conference rate. Additionally, we have secured a courtesy room rate of $139.00 plus tax/night for single/double occupancy at the Emory Conference Center.

You can make reservations at either hotel by calling (800) 933-6679 and mentioning that you are with “THATCamp.” Be sure to specify which property you want to reserve a room at.

Both properties are at 1615 Clifton Road, Atlanta, GA 30329.

We fully encourage Campers to connect with each other via this space or Twitter to find potential roommates to save on costs!

Make sure you watch the Location and Logistics page for more updates!

The Snow That Slowed

We just wanted to mention again that there was some snow in Atlanta recently. It shut down the city for five days, and threw us planners off our game as far letting people hear back from us by January 15. We’re pleased to report that we have now gone through over half of the applications and will be getting to the others in short order. You have our promise that we’ll let you hear from us as soon as possible about being accepted.

Thanks for your patience!

Snow in the South? THATCamp SE Apps Closed? Which is the Greater Tragedy?

In case you haven’t heard, the South is struggling with its most feared enemy: frozen water. As such, while the applications to THATCamp Southeast have in fact closed, we the organizers have yet to be able to meet to discuss the applications. We are hoping that someone finds some salt and gets the roads in Atlanta open before the end of the week. If so, we’ll do our best to reach our original goal of notifying select attendees by Friday, 15 January. If we don’t, know that it’s not because we don’t love you; it’s because nature doesn’t.
