But if I can get them to under $100 for each night....I think that would be a good deal. She is going to speak with her general manager and see what is the best she can do. The Gators are playing Applachian State that weekend, so not a huge draw except for the few coming for Homecoming, but still considered a "special event" weekend.
We will have a host hotel set up by Wednesday at the latest so folks can start booking rooms for Friday/Saturday or both.
