The 23rd annual Northeast Mini Con will be hosted by LIONEL and wife, Rosemarie (HOME DEPOT), at the Best Western Hotel in Fort Washington, PA, the weekend of May 5 thru May 7. Reservations may be made before April 5 by calling 215-542-7930 and identifying yourself as a member of the American Cryptogram Association. Room rates are $85.00 per night (plus 8% tax), a rate which will be honored for unlimited extended stay days before and after the weekend.

The Hotel is located at 285 Commerce Drive, Fort. Washington, PA 19406, less than a mile from exit 339 of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The rate includes free parking, WIFI throughout the Hotel and a hot buffet morning breakfast. Two restaurants are attached to the Hotel.

Fort Washington is located minutes from downtown Philadelphia’s historical sites, Valley Forge National Park and Washington Crossing State Park. It is also close to the tourist town of New Hope Pennsylvania, an area steeped in colonial tradition. We will plan carpool excursions to area attractions for the weekend and any extended-stay daily interests.

Pizza, beverages and home made goodies you are welcome to contribute will be offered for Friday night festivities which will include prizes for Crypto Bingo play.

Saturday will include workshop presentations, dinner at a connecting restaurant facility and the opportunity to regroup at our meeting room to the wee hours of the morning for our solving night owls. A crypto sharing table will welcome any crypto material that you would like to share with the Krewe.

Please make your room reservations before April 5, 2017 and be sure to identify yourself as a member of the ACA for the reduced room rate and credit towards our meeting room expense.
