    Any tips for out-of-town guests without cars who may need some help with rides.

    Where can we post requests for transportation? Any carpooling bulletin boards?

    Of course, we will consider public transporation, uber, and such. We are staying near the Capitol in an AirBnB and like to arrive early to Sunstone and stay late.

    An update on hotel information is overdue. Will there be a conference rate available?
