Hi Carrie,
I wanted to thank you for helping us create one of the best Western Regional Meetings we've ever had - everyone was thrilled to be at the Yosemite Bug and were very impressed with the facility. The restaurant and food were very much appreciated - the band was a hit - the meeting space was great - the rooms were comfortable.
Please pass on our appreciation to Doug and Caroline for their personal help during the weekend.
Also thank Dave from us he gave a great tour of Yosemite and thank the rest of the staff too they were very friendly and helpful.
I think you will see many of our groups return again for future visits to Yosemite.
Thanks Again,
