    Just called and booked our room at the Sleep Inn. Wanted to wait to make sure we had two running cars by then.

    Registration deadline is coming soon. Pre-reg is the only way to assure that you'll hae a spot in the show. We've filled up Big Daddy's backyard before and we are likely to do it again.

    so as of a couple of weeks ago, there is "new management" at the Microtel Inn and they are not honoring the $45.95 Billetproof group rate as indicated on the Billetproof website. they are stating the rate is now $85 for a single queen bed room.

    attempts at trying to get the manager on the phone or call me back have been useless.

    The Microtel is a little strange up there. One year we made our reservations, paid with a CC, and when we got there at 6PM they were sold out and we had no room. I raised hell and they finally came up with a room but it was a SMOKING room and I mean S M O K I N G !!! It reaked of cigarette smoke and we had to open the windows to get any sleep.

    The next morning I complained to the day manager and it was like "Oh well." I will never stay there again.

    We are staying at the Sleep Inn next to Don's place. With all the car thefts going on we are really antsy about leaving our cars sitting all alone at night in the parking lot, so I am trying to hire an off duty deputy from the Marion Cty Sheriff dept to perform security Friday night. I'm not having a lot of luck so far getting through to the proper person at that department because their phone system is really odd, but I am trying.

    If I am sucessful, and if the cost isn't too bad, would any others who are staying at that motel be willing to kick in $ 5 or $ 10 to have your car safe all night? If not, I still may do it as it will be cheaper than my insurance deductable. :)

    Strick and any other GA guys let me know if you want to meet up somewhere on Friday and caravan the rest of the way??? Valdosta may be a good place to hook up.
     
  24. We worked on the trophies Saturday... Anybody who has signed up to make one themselves, please let Rooster know how it's going...

    If anybody is interested, I saved another Swamp King from throwing away a Super 8 projector and some early 70's Danish (European) "films". Might be good for a laugh if we find a wall or the side of a big white van (Nobody is bringing a trailer, right?) we could keep kids from peeking at, and a long extension cord or generator to plug it into... This is a non-sanctioned activity, so it may not happen.
