I got my hotel reservation! I requested the Presidential Suite, but they told me it wasn't available at the discount rate. So, I asked how did they expect to attract us VIPs with our fancy cars?For those that have already registered please go to this link again:

You guys are going to love it. We negotiated a great deal!
I don't know about driving two hours each way... Tech inspection opens at 7 AM, so that would mean leaving by 5 AM, which means being up earlier than that. Then returning after the GTA reunion race that ends at 8 PM, means that we'd be lucky to be back by 10:30 PM. Conventions don't have a leisurely schedule for those of us who take part in the TT, autocross and concours, so I much prefer a track that is as close to the hotel as possible... Just my thoughts, as a mere enthusiastic participant...... What their rational was, I'm not sure, as its only about a 2 hour drive from hotel. ...
You won't see me on the bus, Murray... That bus trip starts at 9 AM Friday morning, and I'll be at the autocross. It's good however, because I can be at the autocross all day and then have time to wash my car for the concours, while my wife is sightseeing in Chicago. I'm sure she'll be pretty tired by the time she gets back, but I'll be ready for a night out with the boys, which may very well be the hotel parking lot!...Hope to see you on the bus.
Maybe we could get are wifes and kids together so we could have a night out with the boy's?
You know Old John and Budsy will want to hot rod around one night.
