Sturgis Camaro Rally - June 25 to June 28, 2015

Hi everyone,

There has already been a lot of interest for Sturgis in 2015. Some people have already started planning, and booking hotels, etc.

We have a facebook group, Central Alberta Camaro Owners, and an event created to help organize at least some of the Alberta drivers heading down.

You can find the group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/CACO5/
And the event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1525451097687429/

I am not trying to step on anyone's toes, just trying to give and get some organized information out there.

We would love some feedback on meeting up with other groups on the way in and out! BC people? Sask people? Washington/Idaho/Montana/other?

As it stand right now there are 15 room set off in a block on the ground floor a strong mix of king and double queens all for the same price. walk out to the cars. 7 of those are booked. You still have time as the block goes off in late May 15. This is open to anyone whom is meeting up with us in Billings MT. Or going down with us from Alberta CA. The hotel information is once again posted in Sturgis 2015 feed you must use the information in order to get the pricing and the rooms in the block. Thanks everyone.

Heard there was a 35% jump in the price of rooms per night...now compounded by a dollar worth 15% less. Hope we don't get back down to 65 cents!

The rooms we booked back in Sept are the same prices I seen on there today? But you are right about our Canadian dollar not fairing well.

Best price I could find at the holiday inn express was $169. They have a couple other hotels that were cheaper, and I know a few ppl stay at the campground because it's something like $40 a night!

What were the prices last year?

Even with a buck fifteen dollar the states is still a reasonable trip. I was in Montana on Friday and with the exchange and the size of the gallon figured in gas was still only 79.9/L.

Sorry, I'm not sure what the prices were last year at the Holiday Inn. We stayed at the Days Inn last year and the Super 8 the year before. The Holiday Inn and Super 8 were full by the time I booked last year. Got on it earlier this year. The Days Inn was in need of updating. Holiday Inn is the host hotel for the Camaro Rally. It's the newest and nicest in that area of Sturgis.

Mjrracing97 stayed at the Holiday Inn last year. They may know last years pricing.

Cabin prices are the same as last year, I'll take the camping cabins as the price of my whole week is the same as most spend for a single night and I sure don't remember spending much time in the room while there

I moved to the Super 8 this year hoping to get away from all those Crazy Canadians. NOW you're telling me you also moved???? I know we (Steve/Lisa) were made official unofficial "token" Canadians so we could drink with ya but do we now have to go through a new vetting process Jim?? Geez...

PS Super 8 rate for AARP/Senior members is $96 (I got $84 for early resv) You only have to be 50 and membership is $15 so it might be worth it.

Hey, how does this sound for you retired types and people with too much holiday time.

Head to Sturgis for Sturgis Camaro Rally in the end of June, head east to Chicago, onto Detroit, over to New York, down to Washington, through the Carolina's, start heading west back to Atlanta, up to Nashville, then to Bowling Green for Camaro Fest6 and back to British Columbia, Canada for Revelstoke4.

Now that's a Camaro road trip!!!

A bunch of us are booked at the holiday inn express. I'm not sure if Jim and Myrna booked there as well.

Also, we have a block of rooms in billings for the trip down already booked. This is for the Tuesday night.

Have a number or extra rooms. It's a long shot, but I should have rooms just in case.
