Planning Your Arrival and Departure

We have designed the CMLI schedule to allow participants to arrive on Tuesday, June 3 and depart on Sunday, June 8, avoiding the need to book additional nights to accommodate travel.  On Tuesday registration will take place from 3-4:45 p.m. and is followed by our opening liturgy at 5:00, dinner at 6:30, and our formal welcome at 7:30.  On Sunday participants may depart at any time; the CMLI program concludes with our banquet and entertainment on Saturday evening.

Staying Extra Nights

For some teams, CMLI may be a rare opportunity to visit an exciting new city (home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, among other things).  You will have one free evening with dinner on your own, and we will provide suggestions about fun things to do that night.  If you would like more time to explore and sightsee, you are welcome to arrive a day early or stay a day late.  You can make these arrangements on your registration form for just $30 per person per night.
