      Am a Indian lady too, thinking about attending this. What would the cost be to share room and ride with you? I am from Cape Town.

        Hi, Thanks for the reply. I do not know why. I only waited for two days and booked a room with a king bed. A room with two queen beds costs the same. For 4 nights (Oct 22 thru 25th checkout on 26th) the total cost for the Dolce Hayes Mansion hotel is $718.56. So it is $359.28 per person if two people share. If you are intersted, I will talk to them and cancel the previous reservation and bookanother room with two queen beds. I am not going to rent a car. There is shuttle service every hour to and from the hotel to the airport.

    Hello – My name is Robin, and I am twenty-two. I applied for the reduced price to attend this conference, and received an email that stated I had been chosen for their ”scholarship”, so to speak, and I am doing everything in my power to find the rest of the funds needed to go… I live in Las Vegas, so if there is anyone that would be kind enough to share a room with me (planning on staying 22nd-26th), it would help me out more than you could know. I’m more than likely going to fly, but if anyone is reading this that is driving through Vegas, i’m always up for a road trip too.
    So let me know, thanks guys!

    Hi, I’m Alyssa, and I’ll be attending the SAND15US conference. I have booked a double room with two queen beds at the Dolce Hayes for Oct 22 (Thurs) – 26 (Sun) (four nights), and I am looking for another female to share the room with for at least three, if not all four nights. If you’re interested, please drop me a line.

    • September 25, 2015 at 9:34 pm, Sharon said:

      Hi Alyssa,
      I am intending to attend Thurs through Sunday night would like to share your room at Dolce Hayes. How shall we proceed? Phone? Skype? email? FB? I will “sign up with Disqus”.

      I am driving from Southern Oregon. Does the room come with parking?


      • September 26, 2015 at 8:35 am, Aly Ssa said:

        Hi Sharon, thanks for your reply. Let me give you my email, and we can exchange further contact info from there:

        I didn’t originally ask for parking, since I’ll be flying down, but it’s definitely something I can contact Dolce Hayes about to being sure to have arranged.

        Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you.

        • September 26, 2015 at 8:50 am, Sharon said:

 is not a good address.

          Hi Alyssa,

          I am delighted that it might work out that I can stay at Dolce Hayes with a roommate. I booked a double queen room at the Sheraton – but can cancel without penalty until October 21.
          How much is the room?
          2 queen beds?

          I can contact the Dolce about the car to save you another thing to do, but likely I will need your name to confirm there is a reservation. I will be driving down the coast from Sonoma.

          About me, I am 59 years old, live very rurally in the foothills of the Cascades, 90 minutes north of Mt. Shasta. I have not attended a large conference of any kind for many years. I am a quiet, tidy person. My body oil is scented with patchouli – if there is a fragrance issue. I sleep 10 to 5 most nights. I don’t know anyone at the conference and expect to wander from thing to thing. I have a few goals at the conference – dance with Samantha Sweetgrass, see Nina Wise perform, have a conversation with Rick Doblin of MAPS and Stan Grof – I am a recently retired psychiatrist. Be surprised.

          Will this work? Please let me know you a little.

            Hi Sharon,

            Thanks for the reply, and I’m sorry the email address didn’t work. It is my primary, so I’m a little intrigued.

            I would be happy to write you a little more to see if this will be a good fit, and if it’ll work out, so presuming that the email address in the post above that I think is also yours, I’ll email you in a little while today.
