    Accommodations:
    We are staying at the Holiday Inn near PCOM's campus.? There is another function happening at the Holiday Inn the
    same weekend, so these rooms are the only ones available to us and will be
    first come, first serve.? I would recommend booking your room A.S.A.P.? The
    phone number of the hotel is (215) 477-0200.? Let the reservation clerk
    know that you are with SOMA.? The meetings will be held on PCOM's campus,
    however the Inaugural dinner will be at the Holiday Inn.


    Meetings/House of Delegates - Nice clothing
    OMT Session - Comfortable clothing
    Inaugural Dinner - Most people tend to dress up for this event
    Midnight cruise - "going out" clothing (the cruise theme is "winter
    island escape" so if you would like to dress to fit the theme, bring
    some "island" clothing.? Keep in mind that it could be chilly on the
    water at midnight in April, so dress appropriately.


    PCOM sponsored event:
    PCOM is sponsoring a Saturday night midnight cruise on The Spirit of
    Philadelphia.? The theme of the cruise is "Winter Island Escape".? The ship
    is being chartered by PCOM and holds a total of 550 people.? The cruise
    company provides entertainment and a DJ.? They will probably set up more
    for a "party-type" atmosphere (ie music and dancing), but they also perform
    for the guests.? Ordeurves are included and the selection they provide is a
    mixture of the following type of foods:? pretzels, nachos, veggie trays,
    cheese trays, etc.? There is also a cash bar.? PCOM is arranging for buses
    to transport SOMA members to and from the dock.? The ship will board around
    11pm and will depart at about midnight.? PCOM is covering the cost of the
    cruise for all members attending the convention -- so we hope that everyone
    will attend this event!? Also, one drink ticket will be provided to each
    SOMA member.? The cruise is not limited to attendees of the convention,
    however, a discounted fee of $10 per person will be charged to anyone that
    is not attending the convention.? PCOM will be selling tickets to our
    students a week or so before the convention.? Any other school that is
    interested in selling tickets to their students should contact me to get
    tickets (JeannieP[email protected]), especially those at UMDNJ and NYCOM.? We
    hope that this event will be a fun time for everyone!
