Location Preference

OK..we have the hotel costs close between Valdosta and Gainesville. Still waiting to hear back from the Manager of the Holiday Inn in Valdosta, but he will probably do the same rate as C5Fest, which was $84.99/nt.

We have the Best Western Gateway Grand in Gainesville down to $99/nt. So as far as we are concerned, it's going to come down to location preference, (which may already be leaning toward SGMP anyway).

Please chime in with your thoughts, because we want to have everything set up for folks to start making reservations by tomorrow. WHAT IS YOUR LOCATION/VENUE PREFERENCE????

1. SGMP - back to Valdosta.
2. Gainesville

But I'm good for either one.

Does not matter to me. Just keep in mind for those down South it will be over a 4 hour drive to GA versus a 2 hour drive to G'ville. I make the trip to Tampa a few times each month. The extra 2 hour drive may discourage some back home.

Gville is 4+ hours for me and 3.25 hours to SGMP. So I'm good for both locations. It all about getting together with others and having a good time. 2 hours shouldn't makes a difference in a 2 day trip. JMO

Agreed, for those of us in the western panhandle, Gainesville is 4-1/2+ hours and SGMP is 4+ hours. Either location is a great roadtrip, my thoughts though are U of F will be having Homecoming, so traffic in town will be pretty bad as well as dining. Seems to me SGMP is fairly central for those is central florida as well as the western panhandle and traffic and dining may be a little more accomodating. For those in between it is still mostly a coin flip distance wise.

Therefore, as I close this disertation and get prepared to be blasted on how one or the other is better suited, I will leave with this: I still have a day's vacation from last year I have to use by December 1st so I will make the trek to whichever location is chosen. Just want to, as Mimi put it, "do a little meetin, a little greetin, a little eatin, and a little streetin" and maybe a little

Edit: Scrmin' Mimi will not be able to make the trip, so I added the last part to her quote. May have to add it twice...

Now that we have found an acceptable hotel in Gainesville, which is more than 6 miles from the Florida field, and less than 5 miles from the raceway, we are getting a lot of push from the Orlando and Tampa bunch for that location. It is the "most" central location for all the groups involved, which is why guiLT and I started to talk about that one in the beginning. I have personally raced at that track and it is a very good venue. However, we all know that SGMP is stellar too. So rest assured that this awesome meet & greet will take place in a good, safe location for our beautiful cars.

Stay tuned for an update by this afternoon.

My plan was to substitute this trip for a big weekend Corvette event that I usually do in Tampa that weekend but has been cancelled. I don't think I want to travel as far as SGMP since I don't drag race anyway and would go more for socializing. Gainesville is not too bad as long as you stay away from the immediate school area. I've been a season ticket holder for 14+ years so I know from experience...Obviously that puts my vote for G'ville!
