Volunteers are needed for different positions this year. Sign up for:
The Days Inn Stadium is just North of The Coliseum, near the heart of downtown Nashville, TN. This location provides easy access from all compass points via interstate and is a short drive from the Nashville International Airport. While there are not a lot of dining choices within walking distance, finding a group of people to dine with is never a problem, unless you're just that annoying. PhreakNIC is a very social convention, so if you can't meet someone to talk with, you should log off of WoW and leave your room.
PhreakNIC has a block of over 120 rooms reserved, so when you call to book your room, make sure to tell them that you are with PhreakNIC. We have a negotiated rate of $72* per room night, with up to 4 adults per room. Since we have been in the same hotel for 5 years, we have a lot of control over the experience. Presentations will be broadcast over the hotel TV network, so feel free to bring a recording device. We will also be setting up a slightly more robust firewall on the hotel internet connection to account for the bandwidth hogs that are sure to show up.
*Sorry for the mix-up. I thought our room rate was the same as last year, but apparently they went from $67 to $72. Woops! (It's still damn affordable!)
