Big Spring Bash Lodging
As you make your plans to attend the 2013 NASA Spring Bash on February 23-24, please consider booking your rooms through the Von Braun Center. Their representative, Marie Arighi, will be happy to help you secure group rates for your team at area hotels. Much like a personal travel agent, she can give you insider information about the Huntsville area that hotel websites can’t provide, and she can offer your team access to exclusive hotels, like the Embassy Suites, which only book through the Von Braun Center this busy weekend. Plus, booking rooms through the Von Braun Center helps us keep tournament costs low.
Hotel reservations can only be reserved through the Von Braun Center once your team has been accepted into the tournament. Please check the SRVA website to verify you are an approved team prior to making hotel reservations. Then contact Marie Arighi for great rates:
