Hotel reservations for the 2018 stevne in Willmar, MN have just opened and are available.  The stevne is July 12 – 15, 2018.  The stevne theme “The Lure of the Land – Dreams and Realities” promises excellent program opportunities.

The stevne will be held at the conference center which is under the same roof as the Best Western Plus and the Holiday Inn Express so is very convenient.

To get the special stevne rate call 320-235-6060 and ask for the 7 lag stevne rate.  The cost is $109 per room.  All of the handicapped rooms are to be included in our block.  For the Holiday Inn please call 320-231-2601 asking for the special rate.  The room rate is $129 per night.  There is also a Days Inn available which is a few blocks away so you would need to drive to the location.  Their number is 320-231-1275.  Complete breakfasts are included with your rooms.

You may want to make reservations early because the rooms not reserved will be available to others closer in time to the stevne.
