It has come to our attention that some people have had difficulty booking a hotel room in Rock Island near to Augustana College Campus on June 14 & 15, 2019 during the Northern Illinois Synod Assembly. There are several events going on at the same time as our assembly including a postal convention, and many of the hotels are already booked to capacity. Therefore, we want to encourage you to get hotel reservations made as soon as possible for you and your voting members.
The other options are to be housed in Augustana’s dormitory or to book a hotel room across the river in Iowa. However, we have been advised that there may be delays in your travel over the Mississippi River when using the I-74 bridge due to bridge construction. Traffic from Illinois to Iowa will be reduced to one lane for many months, starting now in late March.
We do look forward to seeing you and your voting members at our Synod Assembly in June. We trust that you will be able to line up suitable housing for yourself and the voting members from your congregation.
