4. 2019美西夏令會會後旅遊：詳細內容已公佈在網站上。北線(Salt Lake City—Grand Teton/Yellowstone)已無座位；南線(至南猶他州五座國家公園)仍有座位。歡迎東部及中西部的鄉親來參加南線的旅遊，有興趣者，請即刻經由網站預約訂房。南、北兩條路線均於7/21由Salt Lake City出發，於7/24回到Salt Lake City；7/25安排Salt Lake City一日遊。計畫續住一晚的鄉親，可搭於下午五時結束一日遊的巴士；其餘的鄉親可搭另一部巴士於下午三時直接送至機場。
Salt Lake City 南北都是美麗壯觀的國家公園。主辦單位為了與會人士能有更多時間欣賞感受這些美麗的國家公園，因此將開會時間由通常之兩日半縮短為壹日半。值得提起的是，主辦單位相當費神找到 University Guest House & Conference Center at the Iniversity of Utah 供大家住宿，其舒適相當於外面旅舘4-5 星級，而價格比過去幾次美西夏令會又低相當多，確實是價亷物美.

2019 TAC-WC (Salt Lake City, Utah) --- Announcement No.2 (January 8, 2019) TAC-WC will be held in Salt Lake City (SLC) on July 19 and 20, 2019. Details of the 2-days conference program will be announced later. This announcement deals with the post-conference tours (July 21 to 24). SLC is situated near many spectacular National Parks. We plan 2 comprehensive post-conference tours to depart from SLC on July 21, and return to SLC on July 24. The 2 tours are: northbound (Jackson Hole, Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks) and southbound (Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce, Zion National Parks and Cedar City to attend the Shakespeare Festival on July 23.). Modern tour buses, one for northbound and the other for southbound, are chartered. (The bus fare for the entire 5-days tour including driver gratuity is $100/person). The northbound trip is very popular in the summer. It is hard to reserve good quality hotel with a reasonable rate; the lodging cost could triple in the summer. We plan to stay 2 nights in Jackson (July 21 & 22), and one night near the Yellowstone NP (July 23). To guarantee reasonable lodging fees, we managed to negotiate discount lodging rates for these nights. But these rates are only good until the END of January, 2019. We urge those who plan to join the northbound tour to make your own reservation at the following facilities before January 31. A. Jackson (July 21 & 22); Please make a phone call to reserve either (A1) or (A2). (A1) Antler Inn (43 West Pearl Ave, Jackson, WY 83001) [We have reserved 11 rooms ($255/room/night). Antler Inn only accepts group reservation. Please contact Ed Huang (925-659-3683) for group reservation before Jan. 31. These rooms are available on the first come first serve basis. (A2) Elk Country Inn (480 West Pearl Ave.,Jackson, WY 83001). Telephone Number: 307-733-2364. We have reserved 10 log cabins ($268/cabin/night) under TAC-WC. Each cabin has one bedroom with two queen beds and a sofa. B. West Yellowstone NP (July 23); Please make online reservation for Crosswinds Inn (201 Firehole Ave, West YellowStone, MT 59758) Telephone Number: 406-646-9557; $254/room/night with breakfast. Its website can be found by googling “Crosswinds Inn West Yellowstone”. The fees paid for the hotels are 100% refundable one month before arrival. The total lodging cost for the three nights is less than $800 for two, excluding 10% tax. You may cut the room cost by half if two couples share one room. The bus will return to SLC late afternoon of July 24, and we will stay at the University Guest-house in Salt Lake City ($120/room/night). There will be a day tour of SLC on July 25. Information on the Guest-house reservation will be announced later. For the southbound tour, although hotel reservation is not as urgent at present, if you choose this tour, we advise you to make the reservation soon to avoid surprises. We have found hotels, which will provide us with group discount rate. C.
