Can anyone point out places to stay, schedules, etc.
I generally stay at the Super 8 right at the Gardner exit on 35.
Kansas City is a pain to navigate, especially in that part of town- I35 is "limited access," not many exits and no "access road." You're basically on "surface streets," i.e. regular city streets (that often snake around instead of following the major roads, sometimes dead-end, etc.) or the highway if you are further north from Garder/Olathe area, so I don't suggest hotels further north- getting on and off the highway is annoying.
And generally the Super 8 gives a special rate for fly-in attendees. (They have in the past at least.)
