Additional Hotel Rooms for State Games of America


Additional Hotel Rooms for State Games of America!

Thanks to the hard work by Wendy Schneider, we have more hotel rooms for State Games of America.

One is closer to the Giant Center and the other is 25 miles from York Arena. Hotels have been pulling out and others did not give enough rooms for different groups and this is the best the State Games Housing Committee could get us. The link for the club is up and has the new hotel choices!  Click here for link.
