Atruim Hotel and Conference Center

Hutchinson, KS 67501
NOTES: This is the place we stayed last year. It has a fun indoor pool area, lots of open space for gathering, Free breakfast, etc.
This hotel is about a 30 minute drive from most gyms we will play in. However everyone loved this location and situation better than anything we could find in McPherson.
Some families choose to stay over on Saturday night rather than come home late after the game. If you decide to do this, be sure to make the appropriate reservation with the hotel.
If you have more questions please call Christy Mitchell (785) 760-4947
