printable G3 announcement.
Feel free to post it.
The new conference location is Hampton Inn in Destin, Florida. Since the hurricane was so sudden, we really needed to find a new place quickly. Hampton Inn in Destin was the best choice available. Unfortunately, the conference room there is smaller than in Pensacola. Please be prepared to squeeze. We really hope that everyone will fit... In advance, we deeply apologize for any possible inconvenience!
Otherwise, the hotel is cheaper, and that is a great place which is 100 yards/meters from the beach.
It is a good idea to arrive on Wednesday. The closest airport is the one north of Fort Walton Beach, in Okaloosa county. If you have bought your tickets to Pensacola already, there are two options.
No hurricanes will diminish mathematicians' will to learn.
