The online form should be available by the end of March and the mail-in form will hopefully be ready for the April Issue of the Rootes Review.

Cathy and I are registered and the hotel is booked. It' a 10 hour drive according to Google maps, but hopefully we'll have a number of Canadian cars in attendance.... Ron

Hi All

For those of you thinking about participating in the auto-x, we just received confirmation from the SCCA Blue Ridge Region that they have locked in the Augusta co. Government Center as the venue. Good news, as it is only three miles from our hotel. As I mentioned previously we will piggy-back on a scheduled SCCA event like we did at Dayton in 2015.

If you have not already noticed, Registration is open.

If the hotel is booked up, will more rooms be available? If not, then what accommodations can be made at a decent rate near the events.

I think it unlikely the hotel will run out of rooms. I believe the hotel has 100 rooms and we have blocked out about 60. These are blocked until 8/21. In looking at the hotel bookings for past years we usually fill 55-65 rooms. So we should be safe, especially if you book by the end of July.

That said, if we get a larger response, I am sure we could work out something with the hotel. We will be monitoring the hotel bookings so we stay ahead of this.

As a last resort there are many hotels in the area, the closest being a Days Inn right across the road from our hotel.

Following up further, regarding room availability...

As of today 20 of our 60 rooms have been booked. I strongly urge you all to book early.

Hi All

I checked with the hotel and we currently have 25 rooms left (based on 4 nights per room) from our initial block of rooms at the Holiday Inn Staunton.

Hello All

Just an update on room availability. I have good news and bad.

Good news...20 rooms are still available.

Bad news...when those rooms are gone there are NO more rooms available at the Holiday Inn. James Madison University just announced that their Parents weekend will be the same weekend as the United and the remainder of the rooms at the Holiday Inn have been booked. I also checked 2 other hotels in the area and they are also fully booked.

If you plan to attend United 36 Please book your room NOW.

Hi All

Just a quick update on the Hotel. It looks as if we have 5 rooms left for Fri, Sat, & Sun Nights. This number drops to 3 for Thu night. Again, if you have not booked please do so NOW, as this is a very popular weekend in the area and rooms are limited.

Based on room reservations, it appears we will easily exceed 100 people in attendance. Right now only about 50 have registered. If you have not registered yet, please do so. This helps us get accurate head counts early on, so we can finalize orders for meals, shirts, goodie bags and trophies.

Thanks

Jim

Hi All

ALL ROOMS AT THE HOLIDAY INN ARE SOLD OUT.

On Fri/Sat nights we have over 70 rooms booked. That should translate to 125-150 people in attendance for most of the United weekend. That is an excellent turn out.

Right now only about 60 people have preregistered. PLEASE REGISTER if you have not already done so. It will allow us to get an accurate count of people so we can lock in shirt and trophy purchases, book our Sunday Events and lock in our lunch numbers for Friday and Saturday.

It is going to be a fantastic United.

Jim
