LOPSA Cascadia 2018: (Vandevender,Kacoroski,Uphill,Globermann,English,Powers)
Hotel Deca is undergoing a renovation project in 2018 that will preclude using it as a venue for Cascadia 2018. We should look at possible other venues in Seattle or maybe Portland. This needs to be addressed soon. Our contact at Hotel Deca was supposed to offer some suggestions, do we have those?
Since we don't yet have a new venue, I think we should consider pushing back the date just to give us some more breathing room. Depending on what we can find for a new venue, the second weekend in March might not be available anyway.
Call for Participation, Marketing, Promotion
We also may want to wait until a new venue is found and date chosen.
FINAL NOTE: We should explore all avenues right now, decide things at F2F
