The weather during July in Colorado will be temperate. It is a good idea to bring water along on any tours or walks around the area. Attendees are cautioned that Granby, CO is at a rather high elevation (8000 feet or 2440 m) and that some guests may experience difficulties at first with the altitude. In order to avoid experiencing "mountain sickness," guests are encouraged to limit their physical exertion for the first day or two and to drink plenty of water. For some guests, the consumption of alcoholic beverages may aggravate these effects.
It is the responsibility of the conference attendees and their families to have their own health insurance. Costs for medical care while attending the conference cannot be provided by the conference organizing committee, the American Association for Crystal Growth and its officers.
