Our Feis Committee has worked really hard to make this another successful event at the Houston Marriott North.  A few reminders, in order to host our event at such a nice facility we need to remind families who travel from out of town to please plan stay at the host hotel.  Staying at the host hotel will ensure that we can continue to host our event at this hotel for future competitions.   If you have not had a chance to make your reservation at the hotel, we still have rooms available in the room block.  Below is the contact information.
