We have certain events that go on and certain days, like holidays that are "blackout" days. Nobody can have time off on those days. Since we are also a racetrack, any of the big tracks race days are blacked out, in addition to any of our home specific stuff. If we don't rebid, I could tell you my schedule in a year. We do have set schedules and set days off.

Well, there is still Sunday. I get off work at 7:30 pm as of now, so if we havent rebid, I might be able to make it up Saturday night. If we have rebid, I will almost certainly be on graveyard shift, and WILL be able to make it.

HOTEL UPDATE!!!!

Today I went to all the hotels in town and talked with the managers. Out of all the hotels, IMO AmericInn and Super 8 are the best deals.

AMERICINN
~ very nice hotel, very pet friendly, maximum of two dogs per room.
~ NO PET FEE
~ Rooms per night are $89, but a discount will be applied if we rent 5 rooms or more.

SUPER 8
~ midgrade, typical of your cheap hotels, but clean and the manager is friendly.
~ $5 per pet, per night
~ 1 bed/1 person room is $69 plus tax.
~ 2 bed/2 person room is $74 plus tax.
~ 2 bed/3-4 person room is $79 plus tax.
~ if we get 5 or more rooms, the manager will dicount 10% per room.

Monday of next week, I'll send out the postcards to all who have expressed interest.

I'm up for that, If someone wants to share a 2 bed/2 person room with me, I'm in. Other wise I will just get a 1 bed/1 person room.

Edit-If someone needs an extra crate for their dog at night, I may be able to bring one. Just PM me.

Wow! This sounds like a ton of fun! Unfortunately, I have a wedding to go to that weekend in June. Looks like Morgan and I are going to have to wait.

I can't wait to see the pictures, though! ;)

What a nice card I got in the mail yesterday !!! Well done !! I must say though that I won't be able to come ....sad ! I bought tickets yesterday to fly to CA to visit my son and Bride to be by then . They just bought a house ( only son and grandboy living there now ) , but will be a family by then and I've yet to meet her daughter . I haven't been out there in over 7 years and it's pretty pricey for me . Will be there in spirit though !

This is going to be such a super-cool fun event, and I'm going to be missing it. :(
