Here is some new information about more overflow hotels. I googled these hotels, and the Red Roof Inn and the Clarion appear to be behind and to the right of the Rosen Center Hotel; down the street which runs between the Rosen Center and the Walgreens (for those who have been to previous conventions).

I will pass on any additional information that I get.

> The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
