Hotels need to be booked AT LEAST 1 week before the meet. Feel free to PM or call me if you need anything. My phone number is 515-202-4737.
Please post in this thread once you have booked your hotel and confirmed your attendance. Also, please post how many people you will have with you, where you are staying, and which events you will participate in. I will set up the golf later on if we have enough interest.
Even if you dont drink or like bars, you will still have a blast. A lot of people didnt drink last year and they still had a lot of fun! This is the second large meet I have planned, you wont be disapointed!
Just booked @ isle of capri for 4/25 thru 4/27. Will try to be there on Fri. mid afternoon. Planning on 2 people. Will participate in all events, although I won't race, just be a spectator. Two for golf.

Re: Midwest meet FINALIZED! Check in here!
Definitely gonna be there all day Saturday, except for the drinking part. I think everyone should bring a cigar instead. I will see if I can get a camping spot for Friday night at the Illiniwek Forest Preserve in Hampton, IL. Its only $11 a night for anyone who doesn't have a hotel yet, just bring a tent and a sleeping bag. They have showers and its 13.2 miles (20 minutes, according to Google) from the casino where everyone else is staying and 13.7 miles from the drag strip. The only problem is they might not let anyone in after 10:00, so I may have to leave the drag strip a little early Friday night. I still have to call them and see about open spots. I would have to meet you at the track Friday night since I don't get out of school until 3:30.
Oh man, Nick, I see we're doing b-fast at Granite City again. Much thanks for making that a part of our routine. Our trip last year turned me on to that restaurant, and I can't resist going (when I've got the money for it haha).
