NEFilk 26/Conterpoint 2016

I've been falling down on the publicity job, but it's not too late to make amends. The Northeast Filk Convention, in its Conterpoint incarnation, returns to the Baltimore area this July. Here are the details:

NEFilk 26/Conterpoint 2016
July 1-3, 2016
Radisson Hotel North Baltimore

GOH: Bill and Brenda Sutton
TM: Callie Hills
Interfilk GOH: Kip McMurray

The hotel should be familiar to Darkover and Chessiecon attendees, it's the long-time Holiday Inn turned Crowne Plaza turned Radisson that's hosted those cons for many years.

More details can be found on the Conterpoint website.


A con related question - What is parking like at the hotel for those of us who have been to neither convention? (I don't normally make it to Chessiecon due to the timing.)
The hotel has free parking. The lot wraps around the hotel, so one can park reasonably close to one of the sets of elevators serving the sleeping rooms.

I'll be gathering songs for the program book. People can send them to me before — hmm, we should set a deadline, shouldn't we? How about May 16? I might be in Ann Arbor the weekend before that, giving me a chance to snag some songs in person from the local filkers.
Whatever works for you to pull the songbook portion together. I usually use Memorial Day as the deadline for the program book piece since I'm mostly tied up with Balticon until then.
Songbook work is more complicated when tunes are involved, so let's make it May 16.

Hotel reservations

How do I reserve a room? The hotel website lists a variety of rates, none what you say. Is there a code we should type in to get the con rate? I didn't see one on the con's hotel page.

Having missed out on rooms for Balticon, I figured I should try to reserve early here.

Re: Hotel reservations

We do not have an on-line booking code. You will need to call the hotel directly at (410) 252-7373 and request the Conterpoint rate.

While we can't control what deals the hotel may offer on-line, folks should reserve at the Conterpoint rate. Our function space rate is linked to the room nights.
