We could stay half way, in Fairview Heights/O'Fallon area which is just on the other IL side of the river from Missouri and then go on the photo walk to the lake if you want.

Those are possibilities too.   Drury Hotel has locations in both cities - O'Fallon and Fairview Heights.   So we could have a meeting room and all the free breakfast, snacks, and popcorn we're getting used to ;)

 

Sounds like a plan...Laura would you be willing to check availability for us?  (I'm in a mountain of paper at my desk today and am certain it will take DAYS to climb out...........)

I'd be interested in that Laura.  A new location would be a nice change.    I've heard of Carlyle Lake, but haven't been there myself. 

 

 

So, what about coming to my neck of the woods? Carlyle Lake is just over an hour from the airport. We can maybe rent a passenger van for the weekend and hang out in St Louis until everyone arrives if arriving on the same day, and just kind of roll with it as we go.  

 

So, Carlyle Lake isn't all that commercialized but there are a few things we can do. There are plenty of places to eat and as far as a photo walk, we are only an hour from St Louis, or we can go to different places around the lake. There is a Dam, a suspension bridge, and a small sailboat harbor.  http://carlylelake.com/is the website for the lake if you want to read up on it.  There are a few places we can rent. We can stay in some cabins if you want or a hotel with a conference room. 

 

Anyone interested? 

I did a quick check and one of the hotels was booked.  One had a few rooms and seemed economical, but didn't check amenities etc.  

 

I say, check it out Laura and we can compare to options Theresa finds (if any).  We would have to better coordinate flight times.  A van may not be necessary depending on number of cars??  I think the vans are expensive comparatively.   (I haven't rented one personally but looked for a friend recently and I was amazed at the expense)

I'm flexible...location (around STL) doesn't matter so much (to me) as long as it's a safe location and convenient for airport pick up and for Tiza to travel back and forth if she doesn't stay.  I say, make some calls and see if we can find something comparable.  ???????????
