Hey Guys, just got back with the group and was real damn excited to read that the Convention is coming here to South Louisiana (Houma) the last of July! New Orleans is just an hour away, so you can count on me being there. And if there is anything that I can do to help with the convention, PLEASE don't hesitate to ask.
New Orleans Armstrong International Airport is your best choice if you're flying. Amtrak has several lines coming into the City as well.
If any of you are interested in spending an extra night or two in the Big Easy before or after the convention, you can get some amazingly cheap hotel/inn/guest house rates in July and August (slowest part of the year for tourists). I'll be happy to offer any suggestions on accommodations, restaurants, etc. if anyone is interested. Leave me a private message here or email me at "firstname.lastname@example.org" and I'll do my best to help out.
