Gas shouldn't cost you $600 bucks.

Say, 1600 mi round trip...avg 16mpg...100 gallons @$3.50 per is $350 bucks.
Thats about right, but 16mpg is a bit low don't you think? A better average would probably be more like 18mpg.

Depends on who is driving.

Host Hotel Info

Well, The Saratoga Hotel is full for Friday, 18th. Thursday and Saturday are within 10 rooms of full as well. That went faster than we thought.

Best next step if you dont have a room yet:

Get a room at overflow hotel the Downtowner, 3 blocks south. Get put on the waiting list at the Saratoga. Some people will cancell and you could get the open spot.

Very important: Only registered show cars will be allowed on the show lot. It doesnt matter where you are staying, you will have a dedicated spot if properly registered. We absolutly do not have "overflow parking" anywhere at the host hotel at this time. Please keep that in mind when planning you vehicular needs.

That's great info about spots for show cars. I planned to stay at a cheaper hotel anyway, so it good to know when I drive to the host hotel I have a place to park.

There were a few minor issues with that last year, good to see it fixed this year.


Also it would be nice to not have to comb the parking lot for nails, screws, or other tire penetrating objects. (yes, i know it wasn't the club that set up the shows fault at all) Luckily nobody got any holes in tires, as far as I know.

Hotel construction FTL

Ya well we really tried our best. Me and Humbler were out there a few days earlier and it really didn't seem like it would be a problem, but unfortunately like the employees that would not find new places to park it turned out to be a bit of a problem.

Like i said, not your guy's fault. The trailers that they used for storage took up some room.

The hotel changing owners a few weeks before the meet didn't help anything.

It really went well and any problems were minor. It could have been alot worse with the last minute monkey wrenches thrown around.

No, just might be too much $$$$ for us this year. With Donna out of work after her accident and bills upon bills upon bills for it, just might not have the fundage to go.

The banquet is a full sit down buffet with several food options and seconds. There will be a cash bar. The awards will run along with dinner.

The parking lot party on Friday will be choices of typical cookout foods, burgers,dogs, wings, salads and FREE Saratoga MICRO BREW BEER. At least until we run out. Were suppsed to be getting a band, but who knows.
Any extras are going to be last minute, I'm sure.

The fireworks boat will have a cash bar and now a lite dinner since we had to move the sailing time and omit the dinner at Lake George before the boat. We will keep the caravan car drive to the Lake.

At some point the details of each day and event will make it to the site. But that would take all surprise out of it, wouldn't it.
