 .....Sept. 13 to 18, 2010
Staying at "AmazInn" on shepherd of the hills expressway,  the URL for the hotel is:
Lots of details there on the rooms and what they have to offer.
We have 15 rooms set aside for us including 2 on main level for those that have trouble with stairs. This will be reviewed 3 months prior and depending on interest then, more rooms added or some taken off for our group.
Prices quoted are $48.99 per night plus taxes of 11.6%  making the rooms around $55 per night.   This includes a fridge and microwave in each room and a hot breakfast.
To book a room, tell them you're with the "seniors chat group" and request smoking or non-smoking room as well as if one of the downstairs rooms is needed.
The number for the hotel is:  417-334-2300
A few specifics I asked about are:
1.  The rooms are outside entrance
2. The lesser cost rooms are on 2nd floor with no elevator but covered stairways to protect from weather.
3.  There is parking in front of the rooms. So can get close, and probably handicap parking as well but those rooms may be more.
4.  No pets allowed
5.  They do have a covered area by the hot tub with chairs, and tables with umbrellas to sit outside by the pool, and an inside area also to accommodate our group besides the breakfast area if its not in use, in case of rain or storms.
GROUP ACTIVITIES:  these are suggestions for those that want to do them, if theres something else you rather do thats fine too.
