  • Your registration fee must be paid no later than 10 days after your room request is confirmed. We will not hold your room past that time unless you have made a different arrangement with the registrar. We accept PayPal and personal checks.
  • Although shared-room rates are essentially the same as last year, the cost of a single room has increased. Most rooms can accommodate 2 or 3 people, so we would make more money to support the weekend if they were not booked as singles.
  • There is a deeply-discounted registration rate for a shared room with hall bath that is offered until July 1. This is intended to make our event available to people who otherwise could not afford it or would have serious difficulty paying the full rate. This could include younger players, full-time students, unemployed or under-employed people of any age, and retirees.

    UPDATE: We are out of en suite rooms in both buildings. Sorry!
    If you want to be on a waiting list for an en suite room, please email Lynn and let her know if either building is okay or if you want a specific one.
    Even if you indicated your preference on your form, please email her with your preference (if any). Thanks!
    Rates for NESI 2024 - September 20-22

    Contact the registrar (lynnh1947@gmail.com) to request a different payment arrangement if this creates a hardship.

    * Rate per person for three people who choose to share a room (family/friends) is the same as the 2-person rate.
    ** Special discount for low-income participants. We expect this to be requested by those for whom the full fee would create a hardship or make attendance impossible (younger players, retirees, under-employed, etc.). Must be requested on or before July 1. Discounted rooms will have two or three occupants, depending on demand.
    *** Some en suite rooms have only one full-width bed, not 2 separate beds. If you are a couple who want an en suite room and are willing to share one bed, please indicate this on your registration form.
