It looks like everything is available those days. The large room is a
classroom. It has a podium, stage, and sort of stadium style steps
going back (although it's not that extreme). That said, the chairs are
all easy to move around and the steps are very large and we've used it
in CDSW for group work.

The best seminar room is 20 people max. There is also a seminar room
that is pretty modular that we can do 40 people in.

If you want, I can put us down for the big one and a small one (maybe
the 40 person one). Because it's a Saturday where demand is very low,
there's a good chance we'll be able to shift around closer to the
date as well. Sound good?
