We have negotiated a special convention rate of $159 per night plus tax. Their telephone number is 1-888-421-1442. You may also register via the link with the direct code already included.
For extra fare events, we are putting together and excursion on the Santa Cruz, Big Trees & Pacific Railway, which owns the former Southern Pacific Felton branch. This scenic line runs through the San Lorenzo canyon, through the giant redwoods to reach the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. We have also lined up a special Sunday brunch and walking tour of the historic Hotel Del Monte, which is now home to the Naval Postgraduate School. This will be an event not to be missed!
Convention presentations will include a history of the Monterey branch, a photographic comparative of the branch then and now, and a history of the Hotel Del Monte. We are currently looking for presenters that would like to talk about the history of the Southern Pacific Coast division, or any former employees that worked this division. Please contact the convention chair, Dave Hambleton, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org through the business office.
See you in Monterey…
