Old Summer Toots
Prices and Other Details |
for the 18th Summer Texas Toot - 2016
June 12-18, 2016
Toot participants will be housed in Concordia's Residence
Hall dorm (location H on
the campus map...)
The accommodations are 2-person suites with private bath, and
furnished with a small-size refrigerator and a microwave.
NOTE a change!
Beginning in 2015, Concordia is no longer providing linens.
Texas Toot has purchased a limited
number of linen sets (sheets, towels, blanket, pillow) that will be
available for rent ($25 for the week), but participants who are able are
encouraged to bring your own linens. The beds are extra-long twin (XL twin).
If you prefer not to stay in a dorm, there
are numerous hotels in the surrounding area.
Concordia's dining facility was completely revamped in 2015!
It was already quite good, offering a variety of fresh and prepared
foods, as well as accommodating vegetarian diets and other special
dietary requirements. We expect the new facility will be even better.
A "commuter" meal plan is offered (lunches and dinners only),
in order to encourage commuters to take advantage of the fellowship,
conversation, and convenience of the on-campus facilities —
all valuable aspects of the workshop experience.

| Conference Fee
|| This year, there will be a $55 administrative and
facility use fee (not subject to discount) for all participants,
