Since the registration forms for the 2015 Midwinter Convention will not be available until later in August/September, here is the lodging information for the convention:

While there are many hotels in the Idaho Falls area, the host hotel, The Hampton Inn (Idaho Falls/Airport on Lindsay Blvd.), has given us the best rate. To facilitate efficient shuttle service between the hotel and lodge, we are encouraging convention attendees to stay at the Hampton. We will provide shuttle service to other hotels as availability allows, giving those who stay at the Hampton priority.

When making reservations, it is important to note the following:
1. Call (208) 523-1400 and SELECT OPTION 0 (zero) or stay on the line (do not select option 1, as this is the nationwide reservation feature). Selecting "0" or staying on the line allows you access to the local property and they will be able to make your reservation.
2. Mention "State Elks Convention" for the convention rate ($94 plus applicable taxes per night for one king or 2 queens).
3. Convention rates are only good until October 15, 2015. After October 15, the rate may be higher.

Included with each room, is a full hot breakfast, pool, hot tub and business center available 24 hr/day. The amenities in all rooms include: hair dryer, microwave, small fridge, coffee maker, iron and ironing board. Rooms with roll-in showers and handicap accessible tubs are available; please specify when making reservations.

If you have other questions, please call Paula Fackrell (Convention Co-Chair) at (208)681-6838.
