Possible Group Trip to Salt Lake City?

Would anyone be interested in a group trip to Salt Lake City?  I am looking into organizing this for the week of May 17th to the 24th, 2015.  I have a block of rooms tentatively booked at the Plaza Hotel which is right next door to the LDS Genealogical Library.  Room rates would be 85$US single/double and 92$US triple/quad.  I am looking into the costs of bussing and flying.

Please email me at if you are interested or if you have any questions.
