From the Airport to Ithaca using the shuttle bus!

Planning Early? Good Idea! Here is some help locating a local hotel, But I must tell you the Dorms this year are new, air conditioned and set up in suites with two doubles and two singles to a bathroom. NO single bathroom at the end of a hall for this conference!

Please note Ithaca is near (30 Miles) Watkins Glen International Raceway. As luck would have it there is a race on the weekend that EAS finishes. Race Fans all 250K will fill up hotels in a fifty mile radius including Ithaca starting on Wednesday 8/7/02--Call in reservations early but don't worry there is plenty of great dorm rooms available.
