Those of you who have trouble getting your desired room for state convention 
I recommend doing the following.
Wait until Monday during regular business hours and call 1-816-737-0200 tell 
the person that you want a room for the National Federation of the Blind 
Convention and if they tell you there no rooms of that type available 
inform them that you understand that our contract specifies “run of the 
house”  and hopefully that will resolve the matter and they should offer you 
a standard room with two queen or double beds.  I haven’t heard of troubles 
for folks wanting King beds yet.  The above strategy worked for at least one 
person. On weekends all reservation calls are forwarded to  national 
reservations and they can’t fix the problem.
I will call the hotel on Monday and try and resolve this issue as well. 
This seems to happenn almost every year but not to so many folks it will be 
fixed one way or another.
