Pass the Ocean, Hon!
A “Fly-In” at the Beach

Dance levels will be Mainstream through Challenge 3A, with higher levels scheduled depending on demand.  Registration fees are the same as for 2013 -- there are no changes!  At-the-door registration will be $95.  This is the low rate that has been maintained for years, but with increasing costs, will probably not be seen again.  Late arrival and part-day rates are also available.  Filling out the form beforehand will save you time at the door.  Download: PTOH2014 At the Door Registration Form.pdf

Want to bring along your non-dancing partner? The "Dance Widow" fee is only $15, and entitles a person to all the PTOH events except Mainstream and higher dancing levels.  Specific items included are: snacks during each dance session, Sunday brunch, door prize raffle, Chinese auction, 50/50 raffle, and Open House hours.  We encourage dance widows to try one of the latter.  Say your "Dance Widow" doesn't plan to visit or hang out at the Convention Center, then there's no obligation to pay the fee.

We are again recommending The Breakers Hotel & Suites, our host hotel, located conveniently right next to the dancing.  The daily rates for the standard rooms and the one bedroom suites for 2014 are the same as in 2013.

In the block of rooms reserved for square dancers, rates start at $99 per night for standard rooms (single or double occupancy) for Friday & Saturday nights.  One-bedroom suites for the same, start at $129. The rates for triple & quad occupancy are, respectively, $114/$129 for standard rooms, and $144/$159 for one bedroom suites.  Some pet friendly rooms are available at an extra charge.  Applicable tax will be additional.

For early arrivals on Thursday and for stays over on Sunday night, there are daily savings of $20 to $30.  The scale is $79/$94/$109 for the standard rooms, and $99/$114/$129 for the one bedroom suites.

The Chesapeake Squares block of rooms will be held thru Tuesday, April 1, 2014.  After that time, remaining rooms will be released to the general public.  However, if you call to reserve rooms after the cut-off, tell the staff that you are with Chesapeake Squares.  They have promised still to honor our discounted block room rates.

The Breakers has asked us to advise guests that rooms are "Run of the House", meaning that reservations are guaranteed at the discounted rate only, and not for a specific room type (or specific room numbers). But the Breakers will note a "request", and accommodate you as best as possible.

Make reservations by calling (toll-free) 1-800-441-8009. Remember to ask for the Chesapeake Squares' reserved block of rooms.

Good news on Sunday check-out time for square dancers!  Instead of 11:00 am, it is again 1:30 pm. But you must advise the desk staff of your intent before 11:00 am that morning to insure that your room card keeps working past Noon.

And lastly a word about the In-Room Safe Warranty Fee of $1.50 per day:  if you decide to not use the room safe, so advise the desk clerk when checking out, and the fee will be removed from your bill.
