Nearest Airport:
Tucson International - approximately a 40 minute drive via interstate 10.
You will probably not be able to obtain a direct flight to this airport;
see below.

Airport Transportation from the Tucson Airport:
The hotel does not provide transportation from Tucson International.
Shuttle services are available ($20-24 per person, one-way).

Driving Directions To the Resort from the Tucson Airport:
Exit airport and turn left on Valencia Road heading West for 4 miles,
and exit on to I-19 North. Head North for a few miles exiting on to
I-10 West. Stay on I-10 for 10 miles to Ina Rd. (Exit #248) turning
right on to Ina Rd. Head East on Ina for 6 miles to Westward Look
Drive, turning left at the stoplight. Follow the signs to the resort
entrance.  Please visit the CSG web page for a map of the area.

Nearest Airport with Direct Flights:
You may fly into the Phoenix airport but there is no direct shuttle 
service from this airport.   You would have to rent a car or take a taxi
which would be as much as renting a car.  It is about a 1.5 to 2 hour
drive to Tucson from Phoenix.

Group lunches and dinners will be provided on Wednesday and Thursday.
Box lunches will be provided at the close of the CSG meeting on
Friday.  Continental breakfast will be provided for all three days.
