        So is this powwow near the Seneca Allegany Casino? I've never been out there. Also anyone know if there's a host hotel or discounted rate at any of the hotels?

            So tonight while I was "at work", I called all the hotels I could find in Ellicotville, Salamanca and Olean and they're all sold out... is it time to bust out the credit card for the casino or the tent for the camp ground? Any other towns nearby to suggest?

                Heart races
                by MikeBurgess
                Hi everyone,my heart tends to race pretty fast lately and I don't know if it’s because I started taking too much coffee per day or because of a more serious health problem. Now I'm literally a coffee addict. Any idea to stop this?
