INVITATION TO MOODUS MEETING

Fellow Greens,

The Green Party of Connecticut is the proud host of the next ASGP national gathering to be held at the Sunrise Resort in Moodus, CT, from June 4 to June 6. Rates for the entire weekend are as follows:

Option #1: $150 per person (2 people per small cabin). Cabins have air-conditioning and private bath. $75 per child for the weekend. Individual rooms are available for $170.

Option # 2: $100 per person if you decide to camp. Please bring your own tent.

These rates include meals from Friday dinner to Sunday late lunch (they volleyball, softball, etc.). In addition, their will be several large rooms where we can have meetings and we also have access to the Internet as well as fax and copy machines.

Those who wish to stay somewhere else for the weekend will need to pay for those meals they have at the resort ($85 for the whole weekend). If you are arriving on Thursday we will make arrangements for you to stay at someone's house.

Previous ASGP meetings have limited the number of observers due to space limitations. But we have plenty of room here, so all are welcome to observe. If enough people register, the price may drop by $25 per person, in which case, the extra will be reimbursed. Please be sure to register by May 10 so we can plan properly.

There will be a limited amount of financial assistance available, with the priority going to delegates. If you need this please let us know. Also, if you are able to contribute to a fund to help others attend, please send such contributions to the same address below.

It is important that we know who must have support so that we can make the final decisions on where to make the offer.

BY AIR: The cheapest airport to fly into in all of New England is Providence, Rhode Island. US Airways and Southwest Airlines probably have the cheapest rates. Southwest has special $99 one-way fares. The resort is about an hour and 15 minutes from the Providence airport. Arrangements will be made to transport you
to and from the airport.
