Several people have asked about transportation. The hotel does have a shuttle service from the hotel to the airport and to several tourist areas such as downtown Nashville, the Grand Ole Opry and golfing, the mall, etc. There is a charge for this shuttle. Check the hotel website to determine the price. They also charge a daily rate for parking at the hotel. So even though the shuttle might be expensive ( I can't remember exactly how much) if you rent a car it may be even more. Once you get to the hotel, you will not need a car unless you want to go somewhere on your own. All of our activities and events are at the hotel or the mall next door which is within walking distance.
We also would like to explain the raffle for those of you that were not at last year's KP. We will hold a raffle Saturday night at the dinner. The raffle benefits Two Hearts for Hope, a charity that gives hope and help to orphans in Kazakhstan. 100% of the ticket sales will go to this charity. Throughout the day Saturday you will be able to purchase raffle tickets for $5 each. You will write your last name on each ticket. At the dinner we will have all the raffle items on tables with a cup in front of each item. You will place your ticket(s) in whichever cup that corresponds to the item you want to win. Buy more tickets to increase your chances of winning. All items in the raffle are donations. Please consider bringing a donation to put in the raffle. Some ideas are gift baskets of tasty treats, books, region specific items (make a basket with items from your town), Kaz related items, children's toys and games and books, gift cards, you name it, you can bring it and win it! We already have some really good items. Help us make this year's raffle a success! Last year we raised over $800 for Interlink, let's break our record!
