    How many people do we have that will want a hotel room????????? I think we can get a discount at the Hampton Inn that TulsaJeff stayed at last year but I need an idea of how many rooms we'll need then I can get the price and post it. The hotel is not very old and Jeff said the rooms were very clean.

    I would much rather get a room than a tent.

    My wife used to camp with me.. then I took her to Ocracoke island a few years back and we stayed in a tent and got eat up with mosquitoes. Now she won't even think about it.

    I probably shouldn't have done that[​IMG]

    Needless to say, we'll be at the hotel again this year.

    Ahron I sure hope it works out that you can make it and look forward to meeting you. The hotel room shouldn't be any problem at all as soon as we find out about how many people will be staying at the Hampton Inn I'll get back with the owner and get a firm price and what words need to be used when making reservations to get the discount. Don't worry about food we'll have plenty of that.

    I think we will have a hands down winner for the farthest traveled to get there this year if Ahron makes it to Jerrys.

    Steve glad y'all are going to join us. You'll find that I updated the first post of this thread to give the Hotel info. A couple of our members including the boss stayed at this Hotel last year and said it was nice and very clean. We're working on more stuff about the happenings that weekend and I'll post it into that first thread as we get the info nailed down.

    As for what to bring please bring lawn chairs for yourselves and whatever you want to drink. Also bring a big appetite cause your gonna need it [​IMG]

    I'll Pm you directions shortly
