    Early-bird Packages

    (Scroll down to register and purchase.)

    The Total Package:

    Everything but the… wait… You get the sink too!

    The Total Package is your all access pass to business sessions, breakout sessions, food and beverage, and lodging in our dorm-style accommodations. Rooms are shared doubles (two separate beds!) and include access to communal spaces to get together with your fellow Libertarians. The only things that aren’t covered are booze and bedding so stock up and feel free to purchase linens below. Don’t worry, if you’re not into sharing, you can get your own room for a small additional fee. Meals included are Saturday breakfast, lunch, and the Gala BBQ dinner plus Sunday breakfast.  ~ $199

    The Vagabond:

    You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here!

    Seriously, though, you can’t stay here. You still get all the fun and food included in The Total Package, but you’ll have to find somewhere to stay the night. Don’t worry, it’s a tourist town.  ~ $129

    The Sergeant Friday:

    Just the facts.

    If breakout sessions and fancy dinners aren’t your thing, this is the package for you. No food, no frills, no Libertarian thrills. Show up for business and be home by supper.  ~ $59

    Celine Dion:
