I know it a little early and this thread will probably get lost but I told the motel I would try and get the word out to avoid a bunch of confusion on reservation day which is coming up quickly(Jan 1, 2011). I know this motel is really hard to get a room for the LSRU weekend due to its small size, but becuase of problems in the past, they have changed their reservation policy. PLEASE READ BELOW CAREFULLY.....THEY HAVE MADE SOME CHANGES FROM PREVIOUS YEARS !!! FIRST & FOREMOST--the only reservations for rooms at the Austin Motel for the Lone Star Roundup will be taken by PHONE ONLY. NO MORE WALK-INS ON JAN 1 TO MAKE RESERVATIONS SO DO NOT CAMP OUT NEW YEARS EVE OR GET THERE AT THE CRACK OF DAWN TO TRY AND RESERVE A ROOM. THEY WILL ONLY BE TAKING RESERVATIONS BY PHONE. Even if you reserve a room for New Years Eve and stay there the night before they start taking reservations, you will still have to call in Jan 1 and try and make a reservation for the LSRU weekend. Please help them out and cooperate w/ this new policy. If you want the whole low down on the policy folks can contact them for the rate and policy sheet if you would like at firstname.lastname@example.org PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PHONE LINES WILL OPEN UP FOR RESERVATIONS @ 9AM CENTRAL STANDARD TIME ON JANUARY 1, 2011. This is the only way you have any chance of getting a room----must phone in. Thanks for helping them out. If you do not get a room at the Austin Motel there are many other places all over town some close to S. Congress, some close to the Expo Center and we have most of them listed on the website at www.lonestarroundup.com. Registration for the show will open right after the first of the year. Check the website for details.
