Thanks for the reminder Dale. I was about to post a reminder as well. I checked on the bookings on Tuesday and 26 rooms had been booked for the Cirque as of that day. It's not just promotional blather when I say that it's important to book early. I met with the Leesburg Tourism board just before I left to attend this year's Cirque. They warned me that Leesburg is really busy in May and June, and that all available hotel rooms will likely be booked in those months. So if we don't book them, someone else probably will. Next year is Leesburg's 250th anniversary, so while there will be lots of interesting things happening in town (besides the Cirque), rooms may be even more scarce leading up to the busy season. The hotel has 99 rooms, but would only hold 40 rooms for us initially. Once we book the 40 they will likely hold more but that's not guarantied. The hotel has been very cooperative, and would love for us to take over the entire place. The more of the venue we occupy, the more concessions they will offer us.
As Dale indicated, a full buffet breakfast is included in the cost of the room, and is served in a 55 person dining room. A really good way to gather and start the day.
All rooms have refrigerators (to keep all the beer cold!).
All rooms, both singles and doubles, are $115 per night. For those that share rooms, that's probably a savings over some other options.
Also remember that transport from and to Dulles airport (between 7 AM and 7 PM) is also included in the room charge, but you have to make arrangements directly with the hotel once you have flight info.
Don't forget to mention that you are booking for "The Cirque". Best Western Leesburg Hotel & Conference Center - 703-777-9400
I'm really excited about the event next year. Hope to see you all there!

I just made my room reservations for Leesburg, Va for next June... I was surprised to hear about the full breakfast & refrigerator in the room! Pretty nice!
As you may have heard Wayne & MJ say, if you have the slightest inclination to attend, we all need to book those rooms now, as that region is jumping that time of year and the space will vaporize close to the event.
IN CASE you don't have the info at hand, here it is again:
