TS Dorian, Retreat Update

Based on follow up Executive Committee meeting, we have elected to cancel the Labor Day Retreat in view of safety concerns for you and your families. A discussion about possibly rescheduling will occur after the passage of the hurricane. Retreat registration refunds will be processed beginning next week.
People wishing to stay at The Ritz are still welcome to stay at the reduced rate as the hotel will continue to honor the BLS group rate and even give a group rate for an extra day or two if you timely call to extend. People canceling their rooms need to contact the hotel at their earliest convenience and state that they reserved a room through the BLS Labor Day Retreat and due to the hurricane and the cancellation of the retreat event, there should not be a cancellation fee for the room. Please call the hotel at 239.598.3300, or Lindsay Storrie at 239.598.5661 or by email at
As long as you timely make that call to The Ritz there will be no penalty for cancellation of your room. We are very sorry for the cancellation and appreciate your understanding and most importantly please be safe! 
If you have questions or concerns please contact me at (904) 472-7328, Russell Landy at (786)493-1868 or Stefanie Svisco (937) 620-6008
