Big Meadows Lodge offers a variety of
lodging options ranging from Rustic Cabins to lodge rooms and suites.
The planning team have organized a group discount for those wish to
chose more creature comforts rather than camping out. Information
on the room options, costs and how to book your room can be found on the
Attendee Information page here.
Please note that you need to book your room by Tuesday June 25th.
After this date it cannot be guaranteed that you will be able to get a
room as they will be released to the public, on a first come basis.
It is intended that one of the days of the
meet up will be a visit to the caverns at Luray. Located 30 miles
from the campsite it was discovered way back in 1878 by a
tinsmith. Today it is one of the most popular cave complexes in
Eastern America. It even bosts a stalacpipe organ! Entry is
$24 each, but if we can muster 20 of us this drops to $15.50 each.

Pre-meet and in Shenandoah:
So what are we going to be doing in DC and
Shenandoah? Good Question. Well the intent is that the
Pre-meet and very informal. People can explore as they wish.
However, for those who would like to do things as a group the planning
team have pulled together a suggested itinerary that takes in Avatar
related themes. These include the Space and Flight Museum, Museum of the Native American and Washington Zoo.
For the actual meet up there are a number of activities planned.
These include Na'vi Lessons, for which we are most grateful to Dr Paul
Frommer, visiting a local cave attraction, exploring the local area on
foot and in cosplay. You we see further information about some of
these in this newsletter. We also have a event calender page with more information.
What do I need to bring?:
We have pulled together a suggested list
of camping kit to help you plan what you might need to bring. The
list is not exhaustive....although creating it was! Click here to take you to the page.
