I personally don't care too much where it is since God willing I will make it a priority to go. But I do ask that we have one main hotel large enough to handle most of the attendees and then another overflow if necessary. That makes the event so much funner than having 4 or 5 different hotels.

Westward (California) however may be nice, that is if they don't give us too much crap about being "street legal".

I just don't see that as a reasonable. The areas that are being considered do not have any hotels that could potentially hold over 500 people. It's not like other things are going on in these cities, like business travel or families on vacations or passing through. Or hotels that already have people booked for that weekend.

It would be nice, but I just don't see that happening. There will always be a "host" hotel that can hold the first-come people that will be attending. Overflows will be available as needed.

I think what he means is, like in texas, there really wasn't a host hotel, like there was for the previous fests.

Yes there was. Copied directly from the Hotel Listing for the Texas fest:

"If the online rate does not beat what I have posted then call direct.

Host
SOLD OUT THURSDAY SpringHill Suites by Marriott 5169 I-10 East Baytown TX 77521 866-599-6674 ($229)
"

Yes, there were plenty of hotels in the area, but the host hotel, and parking lot party was Springhill Suites.

I thought the parking lot party was across the highway, in a mall parking lot.

First off, I am in no way trying to bash the mods or those who volunteer so much time to putting C5Fest together since they do such a great job for all of us and it is truly appreciated.

Now, I am not sure what fests you may have attended, but TX host hotel was nothing like Phoenix or Indy where the host hotel was 99% C5 with the random 3-4 other guests and accommodated probably at least 2/3 of the attendees. I know the mods did their best trying to get Springhill Suites set up to take more of us and keep us reasonably close to the track, but Springhill didn't want to completely cooperate. At that, it was also somewhat of a small venue even if they had opened up all of rooms left at the time of the agreement to C5, and the parking lot was no where near the size to accommodate a full scale C5 parking lot party.

I guess what I am saying is I would rather drive a little further from the track if necessary to have larger accommodations for more people, there are just some parts and pieces that I have observed which tend to make some of the fests a little more fun than others.

I don't think no one took it as bashing. I sure did not. I was just stating that would be an extremely huge challenge. One that would not be "realistic" in my mind. But hey, if it happened, even better.

We all appreciate the Mods and how much work is done behind the scenes. But it's still fun to give them a hard time.

You make a valid point and I and I am sure the Moderators appreciate you speaking up. Finding a suitable host hotel is a major part of the FEST decision making process. Every FEST is a blend of elements. Sometimes the track is better than the hotel parking and vice versa. Factor in the cost of hotels and tracks and finding a great FEST location gets tough fast.
