St Louis seems to be the halfway spot. Probably overnight there. I'm thinking Nashville might be the stop on the way home.

Nashville can be a fun city. If you have time, I suggest checking out the Gaylord Opryland hotel, not to really stay in, but their indoor gardens are amazing. I have not been since the update from the flood though so I am speaking from past experience.

The gardens and indoor river would be a nice stop to just see. Might want to take out a loan to stay there lol. Could go over to Cooter's Place after the gardens and look at the General Lee and Daisy's Jeep.

I did this on my way across the country. I stayed at a local (cheaper) motel and ate dinner at the steak house in the Opryland Hotel. it was great beef! and the hotel is gorgeous!

Arrow Reminder...

Just a friendly reminder that Fest registration is one per person.

If you have two registrations with different shirt sizes, add them individually rather than selecting a quantity of 2.

Just a quick update, fest registration is still open, and we are about one month off from our next cutoff date of August 8th.

Numbers are looking good but we could always use more participants. If you know that you are going to be attending, we ask that you sign up earlier than later. It helps us plan our cash flow for our required deposits.

Also, there is a limit on the number of driving spots available at the Pizza Party Event. We currently have only twenty spots remaining for drivers. If you are considering racing your fellow forum mates, please sign up before all the spots are gone.

We have made contact with several vendors and should be able to start a list of the vendors that will be attending shortly, keep an eye out.

While I cannot make it, I do want to share, the henry Ford is worth the trip by itself. Really a fantastic place. Also, if your like the zoo, the Detroit zoo, in royal oak is a fantastic place.

We are quickly approaching our next deadline. On August 8th, or in two weeks, the registration rate will be increasing to $60.00.

If you think you will be attending we encourage you to sign up now!

We are in the process of finalizing the agenda and adding some great speaker sessions. Vendors are also starting to express their interest in participating and have donated some great items to day.

Th is shaping up to be a very exciting fest!

Only one week left until the registration goes up by another $5. But more importantly the hotel block expires as well. This means the hotel rate will most likely go up AND they will not be able to guarantee a room will be available.

Don't let this deadline slip by, this is a major one!
