HOTEL RESERVATIONS This is being posted as we have been receiving inquiries for lodging for the 2017 Back To The ’50’s. We recommend Skads Travel.
The agency has helped our attendees for the past few hotel-keyboardyears. They have a dedicated MSRA page just for Back To The ’50’s. MSRA does not receive any financial benefit from this recommendation – but we do receive the benefit of knowing, from the unsolicited comments from those who have used their service, that they have taken good care of our visitors.
