  1. Will the shuttle start bringing participants to the airport on Thursday or Friday? What time?

  2. We arrive in Pensacola at 2:03pm and there is 2 of us. Thank you for providing this service.

  3. We arrive 940 — southwest flight from Philly 936. There will be 3 of us. Thanks

  4. My department in Pennsylvania is all registered for COBC 2018. This is our third time traveling from Pennsylvania and looking even more forward to this year. My question is, out of the four attending, I am the only person who booked my room, and it appears I booked the last room under the COBC seminar rate. Due to the rate jump out of the seminar block, we are having issues with the price of the trip in full. Is there any way to obtain three more rooms at the seminar rate? Thanks in advance
