Pet & Smoking Policy
Absolutely no pets are allowed unless guests are registered in a pet-friendly room. Absolutely no smoking is allowed in any of the guest rooms. If evidence of smoking is found, a minimum of 200 will be charged for the cleaning.

Internet Access
While internet access is available in each of the rooms, it may not be wireless. To ensure that you will have internet access, you may want to bring an Ethernet cable with you.

Incidental Charges
If you are a UCAR/NCAR employee, UCAR will be billed directly for your hotel room. You will, however, be expected to pay for any incidental charges (phone calls, bar charges, etc.) upon checkout. Please note that there is a cash bar available for the Thursday evening entertainment - bar charges can be paid at time of purchase or billed to your room and paid upon checkout.

A hot-buffet breakfast will be provided both Thursday and Friday; it will be served in the Mezzanine (see the agenda for meeting start times). Coffee, tea, water, and juice will be provided in the meeting rooms. You can choose to eat in the Mezzanine or bring your plate into the meeting room. Please note that there will be no food served during breaks on Thursday a.m. so you may want to stock up on food from the breakfast buffet. Please plan to arrive with time to pick up breakfast on Thursday a.m. before the meeting starts.

Thursday Evening Entertainment
As part of the retreat's Thursday night entertainment activities, Maggie is organizing a small informal open-mike session. If you are interested in participating, please contact Maggie ( and let her know what you would like to share. Small surprises will be given to all those who participate in the open mike session. Karaoke & Wii will follow.
