The meeting is scheduled to end at 330 PM on the 21st, thereby allowing attendees the option to take flights that depart Bozeman at ~4:50 PM.
The meeting will take place at the Holiday Inn in Bozeman, where a block of rooms has also been reserved for attendees on April 20th. Use the group code “GNL” for reservations.
