Rally registration does not include accommodations. We have arranged discounted rates at a few hotels in the vicinity of the venue (Simon Fraser University's Harbour Centre) listed below. We are setting up a page for participants to arrange room sharing. Also, during registration signup, there is a place for Vancouverites to express interest in billeting Rally participants and for out-of-towners to indicate interest in being billeted; we will put interested parties in touch with each other.
