Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
Richard Cuff and John Figliozzi, co-chairs of the Winter SWL Festival,
are pleased to announce the dates and venue for the 24th (!) Annual
The Fest will be held March 4-5, 2011 at the Doubletree Guest Suites
in Plymouth Meeting, PA.  Plymouth Meeting is a Philadelphia suburb
convenient to key regional highways, such as the Pennsylvania Turnpike
(I-276/I-476/I-76), I-476, and the Schuylkill Expressway (I-76), as
well as the Philadelphia region's public transportation network.
The change in venue will enable the Fest to continue many of the
traditions that have contributed to its long-standing popularity,
including a full complement of forum sessions, the Hospitality Room,
the Silent Auction, and the Saturday Night Banquet and Raffle.  For
those who choose to stay at the Doubletree, your room rate now
includes a full breakfast for each day's stay.
The registration form for the Fest itself will be available in the
NASWA Journal beginning with the November edition.  A printable copy
of the Fest reservation form will also be posted at the SWL Fest
website, http://www.swlfest.com , by early November.
Hotel reservations should be made directly with the Doubletree at
610-834-8300; a special $89 room rate is available but you must
mention the "Winter SWL Fest" rate to get this special price.  The
Doubletree Guest Suites also has a special website set up for online
hotel reservations at the special SWL Fest hotel rate; a link to this
website will be posted by early November at the Fest website.
Updates and additional information will be posted at the Fest website,
and will also be available in the NASWA Journal and the Fest e-mail
reflector as the Fest approaches.
Please check the SWL Fest website for updates and additional information.
