    I thought I'd mention that the new Hilton Columbus Downtown hotel will be open early to mid October. The Hilton is located on High Street across the street from the Columbus Convention Center; there will be a covered walkway between the two.

    Thanks Purr! It's good to know there might be more rooms available at OSB time that are convenient to the event venue!

    On the link below, I see that there are closed bronze and closed latin and standard championships. Are those pro-am events? Could someone direct me to the right spot on the entry form?

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

    [In exchange, I offer the following unsolicited bit of proofreading advice to website person:

    You have:

    2. Competition Category's that are NEW (Closed Bronze & Silver) Standard & Latin Championships.

    I would change that to the following:
    "Competition categories that are NEW: Closed Bronze & Silver Standard & Latin Championships."

    Better still, I might go with:

    NEW competition categories include Closed Bronze & Silver Standard Championships and Closed Bronze & Silver Latin Championships.

    I might also explicitly state whether these are am or pro-am.

    I may be the only person who would notice or care, but that's my $.02.]

    A new large parking garage is behind the Hilton. I don't know when/if it's open yet.

    Thanks for your comments and suggestions. I will pass your message on to appropriate people, but I think those who can answer are busy at another competition this weekend, so please stand by for a response. Maybe next week.

    Thanks again!

    Here's a link to a skycam which shows construction on the project. A covered overhead walkway connecting the Hilton to the Columbus Convention Center just went up this weekend.


    Moderators: please disable link if appropriate.

    Sorry, it took a while to get updated form onto web site. Please go to OSB Entry Form page and view Pro/Am International Entry Form. There should be some new categories for the new closed events.

    If any other questions, please let know. Thanks again for your comments. :)

    Thank you SO, SO much, pruthe! Also booked! This is perfect for us.

    I'm particularly pleased because it looks like this is a 100% non-smoking hotel, which is important for us since my husband's asthma is significantly aggravated by smoke.

    Woo-hoo! 61 days until I'm there!
