Subject: [VA-bird] VSO Annual Meeting Hotel Deadline
Wow, April 18th will be here before you know it! After that date, the Hotel Madison will no longer guarantee the special Virginia Society of Ornithology (VSO) room rates ($129 for singles and $139 for doubles) nor will they continue to hold a block of rooms for us.

So, if you are planning to join us for the 2018 VSO Annual Meeting in Harrisonburg May 18 - 20, 2018, you need to make your hotel reservations and register for the meeting soon.

To reserve your room at the Hotel Madison & Shenandoah Valley Conference Center, contact the hotel by phone at 540-564-0200 or email at <reservations...>; identify yourself as a Virginia Society of Ornithology member in order to receive these special rates. You can also reserve your room online by going to the hotel website,, and clicking on the Book Now link at the top. Use the code: AVSO18518 in the group/promo area.

You won't want to miss:
--Nathan Pieplow, the banquet speaker on Saturday evening. Nathan's talk, "Listen to Her Sing," will dispel the widespread notion that only male birds sing by exploring the often-overlooked songs of female birds
--field trips to see the higher elevation birds that breed in Virginia and the opportunity to help with the Second Virginia Breeding Bird Atlas (VABBA2),
--the chance to buy raffle tickets to benefit the VABBA2

So don't delay any longer; register soon for this meeting and reserve your hotel room!

Visit the VSO's web site,, for more information about the hotel, meeting, field trips, raffle, registration, etc.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Rexanne Bruno & rest of VSO Annual Meeting Committee
