VCQuatro: A Paranormal Interest Retreat

Lights Out.  Extreme.  Regulate.  KnoW Fear.  This is the motto of the A1 Paranormal Interest Team.  If you have what it takes, please join us for the fourth Virginia City Retreat to be held October 7th-10th, 2011 in Virginia City, NV.   There are NO refunds for tickets purchased unless the event is entirely canceled due to unforseen circumstances.  Event is capped at 30 people.  There will be approximately 10-12 people in each investigation group.  Event coordinator reserves the right to change investigation locations based on availability.

Special guests and celebrities include  Mark and Debby Constantino, Michael and Marti Parry,  and Billy Tolley.  More guests may be announced in the near future.  Investigation locations being booked at present include the downstairs ONLY of The Washoe Club which has been made well known in the paranormal field by the hit show Ghost Adventures,   the Knights of Pythias Building, the Kick House (a private residence), The Peace Officers Museum (old county jail), The Savage Mansion, and the Mackay Mansion.   These locations are in process of booking but some changes may still occur. 

Guests are responsible for their own travel and lodging accommodations.
  Event hotel is the  Silverland in Virginia City.  Event rates at the Silverland will be negotiated and the rate will be announced here ASAP.  They block rooms for us.  If they run out of blocked rooms, be sure to ask if there are any others available.  I also spoke with the staff at the Gold Hill Hotel, and they had rooms available as did the Silver Queen.   If you are in need of a roommate to help share the cost of lodging, please email Tara.  To book your room, wait until the event rate is announced here and then call the Silverland and let them know you are coming to the event.  The rooms will be blocked under APIR.  The hotel will release the blocked rooms that are not booked thirty days prior to the event, and the rate will go back to the normal rate for any remaining rooms at the hotel.  When booking your room, if you are a couple please ask for a king bed room to allow folks traveling with room sharing arrangements to book the double queen rooms.
