It is up to the individual club to make room reservations with the hotel. Block rooms will be booked on first received, first booked basis. Hotel space is based on availability. Failure to make room reservations is not the responsibility of the Michigan District of Key Club. STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ROOM WITH ADULTS.
