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

Dance levels will be Mainstream through Challenge C2.  Please note that all dancing will be on carpeted surfaces.  Appropriate footwear is advised.  You can download the Registration form as a PDF document:  PTOH18 Registration Form.pdf

Want to bring along your non-dancing guest?  The suggested donation is $15, which entitles your guest to participate in non-dancing PTOH activities, such as the door prize raffle, basket auction, and 50/50 raffles, plus enjoy the table snacks.

We are recommending the Atlantic Sands Hotel & Conference Center, our host hotel for the dancing and lodgings, located at 101 North Boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach (Hotel access is via Baltimore Avenue, which runs parallel to and is one block north of Rehoboth Avenue).

In the block of rooms reserved for square dancers, rates start at $125 per night for standard rooms (single or double occupancy) for any night (Thursday thru Sunday).  For triple occupancy, the rate is $140; for quad occupancy, it is $155.  An applicable tax of 8% will be additional.  Safe rental costs $1.50 per day.

Room reservations must be made no later than Sunday, March 25, 2018, by calling the Atlantic Sands Hotel (toll-free) 1-800-422-0600.  To receive the special PTOH 2018 rate, you should specify “Chesapeake Squares, Inc., Booking ID #8558, arriving April 26, 2018” and then tell the hotel desk staff your dates of arrival and departure.  These special reservations cannot be made on the Sands Hotel web site.

The Chesapeake Squares block of rooms will be held until Sunday, March 25, 2018, at 5:00 pm.  After that time, remaining rooms will be released to the general public.  If you call to reserve rooms after the cut-off date, the Sands Hotel will NOT honor the special discounted rates for Chesapeake Squares.

The Sands 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 Sands will note a "request", and accommodate you as best as possible.

Check-in time begins at 4:00 pm.  Guests arriving before 4:00 pm will be accommodated as rooms become available.  Check-out time is 11:00 am.  There is no late checkout at the Sands Hotel.

One complimentary parking space per room is provided in the Sands lot for overnight guests.  If your lodgings for the weekend are elsewhere, be advised that you will need to find parking on the street.  Spaces are scarce, and most easily found during the morning hours.

Smoking is prohibited in all areas of the hotel, including on the balconies.  Violation of this policy by an overnight guest may result in a $200 penalty.

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.

See you at the beach!
