Plans have been set in motion for our Five States Extravaganza which will take the place of Tri-State this year.
We are still nailing down the specifics, but the dates will definitely be March 18 and 19, 2016 and it will definitely be held at the Courtyard Marriott in Ogden. We don't have a registration price yet, but it will include a social, breakfast, bus ride to Snowbasin, a foot pass to ride the gondola at Snowbasin, banquet, entertainment, and maybe a couple other small things.
If you want to start booking your hotel rooms, we have a block set aside, just mention the OES Five State event. The hotel rate is $99 per night (plus tax) and each room can fit 1-4 people.
Family, friends, and prospects are absolutely welcome to this event!  Flyer, Agenda and Registration here!
