I have been checking on some local hotels online & it looks like it'll cost between $50-$90 a night(Check in Fri,12-checkout on Sun,14). Havn't actually called them yet cause  I'm not sure on # of rooms needed or number of people coming. All of them look nice with the lowest your basic hotel to those with extra amenities like bars & restaurants for the upper priced ones. THEIR is GREAT DEALS on all of them right now for that date. I'm figuring around 15 rooms ,what do ya'll think? I've also got a bid on HOTELS.COM for a $50 a night room, 15 rooms, withen 20 miunutes from BMS. It's free, so I figure I'd see how it works.Big%20smile

I checked that same site this morning and couldn't find one with a barCry. LIke you said TAD, we need to start getting a plan together. Anything I can do, just let me know and I'll do it. I plan to take a drive this weekend and visually see what's nearby and post some ideas. Don't know just yet if I can afford to stay for the weekend, but being 5 mins. from track I will definitely be there. Maybe Tad can start a "roll call" thread where we can put our names,how many,number of days, etc.... P.S. Are we looking at the 12-13-08 weekend for our reunion?

Best Western in Johnson City has a bar(montepower- Checked Meadoview out of curiosity-it was only $91 a night WITHOUT any group discount! For those of you not local- this is the NICEST HOTEL in KINGSPORT{bar,restaurant,golf course,convention center, top-of-the-line!}) Looks like we can probably get a NICE HOTEL between $50-$60 a night.

Hey Gang! Just heard this advertised on the radio & looked it up-could be 2 light shows to see-same price as bristol-$10.00 a vehicle-http://www.shadrack.com/christmas/    Looks different than bristol because the lights go with music-probably not better than BMS, just different. It is located bout a 1/2 mile from BMS on the Volunteer Parkway. BMS Speedway in lights is incredable.To see this battleground for racing turn into a winter wonderland is AWESOME!!!!!! In the infeild is Santaland-with rides for kids that includes bumper cars,crafts,food , and last but not least-SANTA!!!!!! (Did I mention santa sets in the middle of a big couch for family photo opertunitys? Can you say GRUOP PHOTO with santaWink). Anyway,the lights take you all around the property @ BMS including down Thunder Valley Dragstrip & around the high banks of Bristol Motor Speedway& through the grandstands @ BMS(yea-where the souviners & food are sold under the grandstands on the frontstretch where you feel like your under the ocean with Ripleys Aqaurium Display. If your not in the Christmas spirit when you get there-YOU WILL BE WHEN YOU LEAVE!!!!!!!!!Big%20smile    P.S.-Everyone is invited to this reunion-wether your a newbie or a regular member that just hasn't been to jelloville yet -NO INVITATION NEEDED-just come on to bristol on the 12th or 13th of DECEMBER!!!!!!!!

HELL YEAH, I'M ALREADY THERE AND EAGERLY WAITING. P.S. Don't ride with me thru the lights unless you want to see the walls of the track up close. And I won't even mention the cringe I get when going down the drag strip,wife ALWAYS gives me that "don't ya dare" look when I get thereLOL
