Convention

Rooms Now Available for 2020 Convention

Currently, we have rooms at The Davenport Grand, The Doubletree, The Centennial Hotel (formerly Red Lion) and the Best Western Plus, which have hosted guests for Convention in the past as well as hospitality suites. (Phone Number: 509-326-8000; Code: 200720201N)  This property was bought by the owner of the Davenport Grand and has gone through a multi-million dollar renovation.  I was there recently and it looks beautiful. 

For people staying at The Centennial, this hotel is a short walk across the park to the convention center.  For those unable to make the walk in the morning or afternoon, we will provide van shuttle service back and forth from the Convention Center.  I’m also working on some golf carts like we had in Grand Rapids for the Ladies General Session!

Congratulations to all for the excitement for Spokane 2020! Get your reservations now for The Centennial!

God, Flag & Country

We regret to inform you that the 2020 International God, Flag & Country Competition has been cancelled. As many of you know, State/Provincial competition winners move on to compete each year at the International Convention. Because our States and Provinces have not been able to host the various qualifying competitions throughout the Spring that make the International Competition possible, we will be unable to host the event this year. We look forward to the 2021 God, Flag & Country Competition next year in Phoenix and hope to see all of you there!

The Grand Aerie has partnered with Western Medical Specialties Scooters for the 2020 International Convention in Spokane. Rentals are $150 plus-tax for the week and can be reserved at 1-509-489-6879.
