The next OMA Gathering: Nashville, Tennessee, 18-21 May 2018.

Venue hotel:     HILTON NASHVILLE AIRPORT---2200 Elm Hill Pike, Nashville. 

Until 16 March 2018, a special reduced room rate will be available to OMA attendees.  The rate is $170 per night----not including taxes of 17-18%. Individual rooms can be reserved in two ways:

--  Call Hilton's "Central Reservations" number:  844--886-4136 and refer to code "OMA."  Central Reservations, as the name implies, books reservations for all Hilton Hotels internationally.  In other words, you will not be speaking to someone in Nashville.

If someone wishes to arrive before Friday 18 May and/or checkout later than Monday 21 May, you should so indicate when requesting your reservation.   As OMA understands, requests for earlier check-in and/or later checkout, will be honored at the special reduced rate.

If you have problems reserving a room at the Hilton, please contact Joe Arden at:


Schedule:   Similar to previous OMA Gatherings in that

18 May (Fri)  Registration, Reception, Group Dinner--Hilton Nashville Airport

19 May (Sat) AM refreshments, group meeting---Hilton Nashville Airport. Evening  Group dinner--local restaurant close to Hilton.

Then, in something of a departure from earlier patterns, given Music City Nashville, the Gathering will continue for those interested:    

20 May (Sun)  Exact activities still to be determined.  But, Nashville offers a full plethora of tours/music events and concerts/restaurants, clubs and bars with music.

Possibilities include Group Brunch.  Group afternoon activities.Group dinner/music show.   But, perhaps, will opt for not scheduling group activities per se, and instead leaving to individuals to decide upon their "smaller group" preferences.

More information forthcoming as move into 2018.

Key----is that rather than departing Nashville on Sunday 20th, almost certainly, aconsiderable number of attendees, will spend night and depart on Monday 21st.
