    I heard today that the host hotel lost 100 rooms ... I called about my room and they told me at this point I need to call back next week to see what will happen

    Won't be making it this year. Saving my fun tickets for the Frog Follies and Pigeon Forge and hopefully the Redneck Rumble. Wish I could afford them all. Maybe next year since I haven't been since the flood.

  7. NSRA NATS in Louisville has it all...nice big facility to handle the mass of cars,folks to erect canopies..big canopies,a massive AC building for not only vendors but seminars,food,lady's world an mostly some comfort from the heat if needed.A large swap meet an a nice big arena for giveaways an awards not to mention music.The whole town turns into Hot Rod Central.I am originally from the Ville an now live in Lexington.Good times.
     
  8. Holy Crap - that is where we (and most exhibitors) are staying!!!!

    Those of you that have reservations at the HQ (Crowne Plaza) might want to reverify your reservations...had 60 mph winds last night and blew the roof off the east side! I talked to the reservation lady today and she assured me they would be OK for the Nats....BUT that's only 10 days away...see video and read article if interested..

    A friend and I went once sevral years ago and nearly burnt up from the heat, however I have often thought about going back but I have gone yard sale shopping for car parts etc. etc. the last sevral years on the "Hwy 127 yard sale" that extends thru sevral states, Its always the same weekend.

    How big is the swap meet? I dont remember one from when we went years ago but we may have missed it since we didnt stick around long.

    I enjoy the inside swap meets in the spring and fall there.

    Saw pictures on the Louisville TV and theres no way the Crowne Plaza will be done in ten days. The roof is torn off not to mention the damage to the rooms. If anyone loses their room at the Crown Plaza, PM me for suggestions on motels.

    I'll be there. Putting my fresh 32 Ford sedan delivery in the builders showcase. First time without a vendor booth since 1995. It's gonna be tough to kill 5 days in that heat.

    I plan on going but as some guy's already mentioned, be ready for the heat. It's been unbearably hot in the Louisville area recently. I have a feeling the indoor exhibit building will be very popular this year.

    that spot (fairgrounds) is a magnet for rough weather, the big flood,tornado a couple years back hit churchhill downs and just down the street,small flood a couple days before the nats a few years back.always the strong storm during the nats and now this.must be all those UPS planes coming in and out.lol

  21. Pitman & all interested parties...they keep saying that the crown Plaza will be ready sometime next week. They had water damage on the top two floors from a broken sprinkler pipe. The other four floors are still in use from what I can figure out. Post/PM me a week from now and I will give what info is current at that time according to local TV. I will give update on bridge repairs and traffic also if needed. The have also stated more than once that they will be done in that area before the Nats. REMEMBER..the state fair is the next week and that is the really big deal. The nats is the third largest income event in town so they are trying hard to accomdoate us. Tim
