The Executive Council would like to invite you to save-the-dates for the 27th Meeting of the American Society for Rickettsiology, June 20-23, 2015, in beautiful Olympic Valley at Lake Tahoe, California. Bookmark the conference website and check often for updates: http://www.vet.k-state.edu/CE/ASR/
The Village at Squaw Valley is nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains among granite peaks and breathtaking views. You will be off the plane and in Squaw Valley in just 45 minutes after a short, scenic drive from the Reno/Tahoe International Airport. The village has everything you will need from unique shops, fine dining, lively bars and pubs, and fire pits throughout the village for evening networking. When you reserve your suite, you’ll also be getting a spacious living room with a queen size sofa sleeper, gas fireplace, a private balcony, and a fully equipped kitchen, including refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and range. One-bedroom suites are $139. Two-bedroom suites are $219.
Plan to join us on the north shore of Lake Tahoe, bring the family, and stay a few extra days. You can hike to spectacular waterfalls, golf in an alpine meadow, mountain bike, or take the tram to High Camp where you can swim, roller skate, and play tennis (elevation 8,200 ft.). Just minutes from the Village, Squaw Creek championship golf course was named “One of the Top 10 Courses You Can Play” by Golf Magazine. Spend an afternoon boating on Lake Tahoe or rafting down the Truckee River. The Village at Squaw Valley has agreed to offer our discounted group rate for three days before and after the meeting, based on availability.
Look for another message coming in November announcing updates to the website and the opening of our call for presenters and posters. Registration will open in January 2015. Visit theASR Meeting Website to learn more!
