The conference room has been secured at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites DFW West - Hurst, 820 Thousand Oaks Dr., Hurst, TX 76054.  We do have block rooms available at a discount for anybody interested.  In the one day we've had the block, they've moved fast, so I have a request in to enlarge the block.

If you'd like any additional information, please send me an email.

Fixed.  Thanks for pointing it out.  Fortunately, I imagine most people are smart enough to recognize that as a mistake ;-)
