Due to a higher than expected turnout for the upcoming Western Fish Disease Workshop in June, we are close to using up all of the rooms that were set aside for our meeting at the Clearwater Resort in Suquamish, WA. If you have not reserved lodging yet for the meeting and are not able to get a room at the Resort, we have reserved a block of rooms at the nearby Poulsbo Inn (http://www.poulsboinn.com/) to handle the overflow. The Poulsbo Inn is located about 4.5 miles down the road from the Clearwater Resort. The block of rooms are reserved under the name “The Western Fish Disease Workshop” and are at the government rate of $91/night (double occupancy). The best way to reserve a room is by calling one of the following numbers (1-800-597-5151 or 1-360-779-392). If you reserve on line, make sure you note that you are with the Western Fish Disease Workshop to ensure that you get the government rate. Let me know if you have any questions.

A block of rooms is being held at the Clearwater Resort and Casino under the Western Fish Disease Meeting name at the government rate of $91/night (double occupancy). Reservations must be made before May 26, 2017 to get the conference rate. The room block dates are from Sunday, June 18th to Friday, June 23rd, 2017 to accommodate those that may want to extend their visit.
