Less than $90.00 I'm sure.
Doesnt matter to me, just a bed and shower all I need. And as long as it's in a decent area that is well lit.

Thats good for me also, but like Ject stated, Abygale was working on it also. But if two people are working on it we might have a choice of hotels to choose from or a better deal if the hotels know we have a group and have a choice of hotels. I also don't care except for trailer parking area at whatever hotel. Thanks to both of you for working on our hotel needs.

This is a change for me. Usually wait until the last minute to plan. This is how I should have always done it. I plan on putting in for the time off this week since it will be after November 1.

Anything is good for me, like others have said, just as long as its not too outrageous

Since this convoy plan is on its way, I have another question for yall. If we started an Oklahoma Chapter Camaro Club. . .how many of yall would be interested and how often would you be willing to participate in things like owner dinners, poker runs, etc. (monthly, quarterly. . .)

Supercop that's great if you can get a $90/night rate for us there. I haven't called any of the hotels but most websites are showing a rate of $180-200 night. If you are getting quoted $90 I say let's stay there. It's pretty much on our route, most of them are no more than 1-2 miles off the highway we are traveling so that sounds great. If you want to firm things up with an estimate of how many rooms and see what they say, I'm all for it I wouldn't mind sharing a room if there is another lady traveling alone either.

Okay... I will give them a call tomorrow and find out 1st about parking, if it sounds good I'll then pull out the rubber hose and get down to price cutting. I think with a good whip and hose I can get less than $90.00.
At my count + or - one or 2, I have about 7 rooms & we still have till April to add more people when they find out about it.

I work 2 full time jobs and just planing this off with 2 jobs makes my head hurt.
But... that being said...and it is a CAMARO event ( my house is divided, wife has a Mustang GT ) and she is VERY emotional about it. Say nothing bad or the little 4'9" women will whip us all !!
Now that being said.... for me quarterly would make good for me, of course this would have to be a planned weekend...so wife could get off work.. a weekend day.. Sat would be best for me.... now I have left my 2 cents like I always do...

I'd convoy with you guys but I'm heading via Nashville instead of Birmingham (a bit out of the way, but I have friends I'd like to visit) and my fuel range is only 300-350 to a tank.

I mean, it could work (I'd just split from the group in Memphis and have to make twice as many gas stops, but I don't mind playing catch up every 4 hours or so) but I don't want to slow you guys down.

Okay boys & girls.... I have a block of 10 ROOMS for us and, if we need more I can get them.
The room is $69.00 a night with tax and other charges.. Total is $78.66

They have parking for the guys with trailers, lot is lighted, and they have a police officer that she says patrols. I told her we would have a race police car to help get him there and his buddies a few more times during the night.
Cancelation is 30 days before to get money back.... this is because of the price I BEAT them down too.
XANTHOS you are more than welcome to run with the BEST !...

Okay... Wingate is the name of the hotel, you must tell them you are with the CAMARO5 group for this rate. 205-995-8586 ... credit card to hold room.
If anyone has a questiom PM me & I will give you my cell number or email you. !!!

Great job. Thank you. I'll call them tomorrow and book my room. Also, what do you guys think of doing the same thing on the way back? Since we probably won't hit the road until noon or 1:00 this might be a good resting place and make the rest of the drive on Monday??? What are your thoughts or were most people just getting up and heading back early on Sunday??

I wasn't planning on leaving till after the awards, but I was going to just head straight back and crash when I got home.

Maybe I'm just crazy like that though.

More then Likely yes for me... I tend to stick to what I know or places I have been when away from home.

I'll probably be leaving around 6am on monday just so i have time once home to unload everything and get sleep for work on that tuesday

I was thinking about the same thing, but I figured most people would want to head back at their own pace, but my friend and I (2 girls) are going to be heading back Sunday about the time you said, and plan on being back sometime on Monday, we wouldn't mind driving back with you!

Great! I'd love to stay for the wrap-up of all the events and awards, then head out after we eat. I imagine it will take quite a while for all those cars to leave. If you guys want to we can look into trying to make it to Memphis on Sunday which is further than Birmingham and a shorter drive for us on Monday, but I figure we all may be a little tired from the weekend and getting to bed early on Sunday may be in order too! I'm flexible so it's whatever the majority feels like doing.

Sounds good to me, I think we are pretty flexable as well, just wanna be home in time Monday to get in bed and be at work Tuesday We can workout the details in time, my friend that is coming with me has been out of town the past week and a half, so I need to get her caught up on our plans once she gets home and I'll talk to her about her thoughts for the ride home.

Also, I'm going to head over to Marc Heitz in Norman one day this week and try to talk to them about letting us use them as a meeting place that Thursday before we leave. I'll let everyone know how that goes once it happens. I called last week and am still waiting on a callback. . .thus the in-person visit

With any luck I'll have the maxim fixed up by April and be able to take it to C5fest instead.

We just reserved our room. You might try again Abygale.

I plan on staying Sunday night somewhere, but do not know where. Depending on when we leave, I was thinking Memphis or Birmingham again. However, it could be somewhere entirely different. Sounds like the group might just make plans before we leave to come back or just probably see a good spot to stay as we are driving up there and stay there on the way back.
