Meals

Eating meals together is part of the fun of Scor!.

Transportation
Hotel to Event Facility: We suggest that if you intend to fly in, you also rent a car. This Scor! location is a 30-40 minute drive south of the Providence-Warwick airport, and the hotel and event facility are 5 miles apart. So, for your convenience, a rental car is your best option. Plus, there is so much wonderful exploring to do in the area!

If you want to be close to the event facility, consider staying at a B&B only 1/2 a mile away. (See below.)

There is a train station (Amtrack: West Kingston, RI: KIN) very close to the University and the B&B if you'd like to take a train from NYC or Boston. Travel time from Boston is about 1 hour; Travel time from New York Penn Station is 3-3.5 hours.

If you will not have a car and will need transportation between the hotel and event facility, please check the box on your online registration that indicates you will need a ride. We will match you with a ride volunteer when possible. Otherwise, we will provide you with information on transportation options available to you.
