Hello Amy,   I think we finally have everything straightened out for the hotel.  When your parents call to book they need to call the hotel directly, 854-7100, and ask for the Harkins Middle School rate.  The attachment is the room guarantee contract that I signed to guarantee the $129 for 10 rooms, although I just spoke to the booking manager and she said if needed she can add a few more rooms. The contract states that the rooms cannot be cancelled due to the rate, therefore you might want to mention that to anyone booking rooms.  It also outlines hotel policies and states that rooms need to be booked tomorrow.  After tomorrow, they will not guarantee the $129 rate.    I sincerely apologize for all the aggravation that this hotel booking has caused both you and any parents.  We chose to affiliate ourselves with this hotel based on the rate, pool, and the fact that it included a hot breakfast which we thought would help reduce costs for teams.  If you have any further difficulties with reserving rooms, please call me.   See you Friday, Nick Mattatall Grade 5,7 & 8 Bessborough School
