Turning 2015 will be held at The Higher Ground Conference & Retreat Center in rural West Harrison, Indiana. The center is located in a rustic area surrounded by rolling tree filled hills.  This environment encourages attendees to stay on site, dine with new and old friends, and enjoy the camaraderie and open sharing of woodturning experience.

The Symposium Pass Fee INCLUDES meals for the day or days chosen. If you, Spouse or Guest will need Thursday dinner choose that option also. Those dining on Thursday night will be treated to slideshows presented by our professional demonstrators. There is a 3 day meal option for a Spouse or Guest that will join you but not attend the Symposium (this option includes the Sat. Banquet). If Spouse or Guest will ONLY join you for Saturday Banquet there is an option for that also.

The on site Check-in / Registration Desk will be located in the lobby of the Graves Family Life Center.  The Graves Center is also the main location for Demonstrations as well as the Trade Show and Auction. Check-in / Registration Desk will open on Thursday, October 8, 2015 from 4:00 to 9:00 PM.  It will reopen at 7:30 AM on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Dormitory rooms DO NOT include linens (pillows, sheets, and towels).  Please bring these with you.  Most dormitory rooms will sleep four persons per room on the bottom level of bunk beds.  A few dormitory rooms will sleep up to 8 people. Please note on your registration form under "Questions For RV Campers And Dorm Guests" if you have a room-mate preference.
