Colorado Field Ornithologists (CFO) is pleased to report that preparations 
for CFO's 2018 convention are rapidly coming to fruition! 

The convention, as previously advertised, will take place May 17-20, 2018, 
with headquarters at the Best Western Plus Plaza Hotel in Longmont. 
Scheduled field trips will extend out widely in all directions, at a time 
of year that plenty of both native and migratory birds should be expected. 
Convention registration should be available starting around early-to-mid 
March, and run through May 2.  

In the meantime, we have posted a convention preview and the convention 
agenda on the CFO website, where they can be viewed at the Next Convention 
page,  Those two documents 
contain more information and details than described here, and are also 
posted in pdf format for downloading or printing if desired.   More 
information, including field trip information, will be posted to that site 
as it becomes available.

A few more things to note:

Many rooms have already been booked at the Best Western Plus Plaza Hotel, 
after previous posts about rooms being available at a discount for those 
identifying themselves as CFO convention registrants.  There are still 
rooms available, though some types of rooms are becoming scarce.  If you 
are planning to stay at the Best Western, you should probably think about 
making reservations with them sooner rather than later, at 303-776-2000.

As in recent years, CFO will attempt to notify, by email (MailChimp), all 
current members of CFO as to the opening of convention registration prior 
to making a more public announcement.  So, you may want to make sure that 
your membership is current before then — and keep in mind that current CFO 
members get $20 off the convention registration fees that non-members pay, 
as well.  (And our apologies up front for those we can’t contact due to our 
having outdated or misspelled email addresses on file, or because MailChimp 
is directed into some peoples’  junk mail folders; we don’t have any better 
way to contact our entire membership.)

And then also, CFO is trying to reduce it’s environmental footprint by 
strongly encouraging all registrants to bring their own re-usable drink 
containers to the welcome picnic, and for use with sack/boxed meals and all 
field trips.  Thanks in advance for participating in this project.
