So we have everything booked and have received a good response so the conference is a go!  Thanks for the support we have received so far!   This conference is taking the place of the ATS conference this year since they could not do it this round.

Dates: July 23rd to July 26th

You can sign up at

It will be held at the same resort as the last few years.  

If you haven't been to this amazing resort before, you are in for a treat! The El Conquistador Hilton is fun for the whole family, they even have a water slide!

For rates make sure to use the codes below as its way cheaper than booking yourself and it helps them know how many of our people actually booked.
Please call 1-800-325-7832 and ask for the Bringing the Hobby Together Room Block; OR
Go to and use the Group Code: BHT
