MEETING PACKAGE: Georgia's Lake Blackshear Resort Offers Upgrades

Lake Blackshear Resort & Golf Club in Cordele, Ga., has launched a "choose your own upgrade" program for meeting planners. Called the "Take 2 or Take 4" program, it's available for groups booking at least 20 room nights during the course of the next month.

Groups meeting between now and Oct. 7 may choose two upgrades while groups meeting during select "bonus dates"—Sept. 4-11, 13-16, 20-21, 25-28, or Sept. 30-Oct. 4—may choose four. Upgrades include:

• Complimentary welcome or farewell reception
• An allowance for 80 percent attrition instead of 90 percent
• 10 percent discount on resort-catered food and beverage and audio/visual
• One complimentary guest room per 20 paid room nights
• 25 percent discount on boat rentals at Lake Blackshear Marina during meeting dates
• Complimentary morning or afternoon coffee break
• 50 percent off Liberty Lady Charter fee and reduced food and beverage minimum

As an added bonus, groups utilizing 50 or more room nights receive an additional 10 percent off the total master bill.
