Registration for the
Oughtred Society Winter Meeting
the weekend of March 1, 2014 at
the National Atomic Testing Museum,
Las Vegas, Nevada

Plans for the OS Winter Meeting, the weekend of March 1, 2014, have progressed extremely well. It should be a great meeting. Registrations are proceeding at a record rate. Cost is only $35. The meeting itself will run from about 8:30 am to 5:00 pm at our usual place, the very nice National Atomic Testing Museum which has easy parking and close access to a number of places for lunch. We are asking everyone who is thinking seriously about coming to the meeting to please REGISTER NOW so we can arrange sufficient facilities.

Hotel Accomodations:

We have negotiated with The Baymont Inn and Suites, Flamingo-Paridise (part of the Wyndham Hotels Group) at 4055 Palos Verdes Street, Las Vegas, NV 89119, which is only 2 blocks from the meeting site and one mile from the Strip. Our group rate is $54 per night, including taxes (very reasonable for Las Vegas!). There will be no resort or other miscellaneous fees, as are often charged by Las Vegas hotels. While some attendees may wish to stay elsewhere in Las Vegas, Richard Davis was able to negotiate this very favorable rate for us, and it will be nice to be able to be together. You can see the Baymont facilities on their Baymont Inn web site To make reservations, please call the hotel directly at 702-473-6400 and select #5 (Front Desk) when prompted. Then ask for the Oughtred Society group rate (do not register online!). This special rate will be available for any dates from February 27, 2014 through March 4.
