A Note of Caution

Attendees are cautioned that Keystone is at a rather high elevation (9,300 feet or 2,800 m) and some attendees may experience difficulties with the altitude at first.  In order to avoid experiencing altitude sickness, guests are encouraged to limit their physical exertion for the first day or two and drink plenty of water.  For some guests, consumption of alcoholic beverages may aggravate these effects.

The summer weather in Keystone is temperate, but the sunlight is intense.  Be sure to use plenty of sunscreen, wear a hat and, again, drink plenty of water when engaging in outdoor activities.

It is the responsibility of the conference attendees and their families to have their own medical insurance.  The conference, the organizing committee, the American Association for Crystal Growth and the International Organization for Crystal Growth and their officers bear no responsibility for medical care for conferees and their families.
