 Update on Lodging!

We have just been advised that OR PRIMA's block of rooms at the Sunriver Resort Lodge is sold out.

A block of rooms has been secured at the La Quinta Inn, 61200 S. Hwy. 97, Bend for October 1 and 2 dates of stay at a rate of $97.00 per night (not including Bend's lodging tax of 11%).  A credit card is required at booking.  All rooms are reserved under Oregon PRIMA.  Individuals should call the hotel directly at 541-388-2227 to reserve a room.  Rooms in this block will be held ONLY until September 10, 2014.  Rooms requested after this date are subject to space availability and there is no guarantee that the group rate can be extended.

As an alternative to staying at the lodge, you may consider the wide variety of condos, townhomes and home rentals that can be found through a simple google search on "Sunriver Vacation Rental."  Many properties are available with pricing similar to that offered at Sunriver's conference rate.

Could county, loggers be liable in mudslide?
