    Glad to hear it. I look at it this way, it is easier to bring all of these guys to me then drive out to all of them!

    You just need to let them know you are entering and they all have a list for you to put your info onto.

    hello, we are Vending as Aquatic Creations LLC and I was wondering if there is a reference for vendors to find a local hotel to stay in? Sorry if this was the wrong place to post this question. thank you in advance for your help.

    Here is the hotel info:
    You can book at the Best Western in Mansfield CT. Its cheap and about a 5 minute drive down the road.
    You can also look at the Nathan Hale Inn, more expensive but just a short walk across the back parking lot to the school.
    Other than that, you can look at hotels in Vernon or Manchester CT. Try to pick ones that will be near Rt 84, which will give you easy on/off to get to the school.
