I refuse to even drive past an IHOP if I'm lucky enough to make the pilgrimage.

I'm thinking once i get a good head count, I may make some inquiries into booking a few rooms all at the same joint. I feel like most everybody knows each other well enough that we can double up and split room costs. That's more money for some exacta back wheels at the dog track. Priorities, ya know...

Here's my itinerary thus far that I'm most likely gonna pull the trigger on...

Arrive Tampa at noon Tuesday Feb 24th
Leave Tampa 10:30 Mon March 2

Round trip direct flights plus rental car is gonna run me $387

I figure most everyone will come in on Wednesday or Thursday.

In regards to the hotel, I need some opinions. There are a couple decent ones rignt down the road from the track. Holiday Inn express is $139/night. I don't know how you guys feel about 3 to a room, but if we did that, after taxes it would be $50-$55 a night. Those that would prefer just 2 to a room, by all means. Depending on how many make the trip, a 2nd rental would maybe be a smart idea.

Talk to me.

from Chicago, i'm looking at Wed. arrival and Monday Departure.

I have an "in" possibly for hotels not too far from the track, it worked out well when we went in 2013, about 7 miles from the track.

3 to a room is fine with me, we did it last time with a roll out.

once i hear back from "in" i'll need a head count to see what we're working with numbers wise.

*suggestions, if we get a soccer mom van we might only need to rent 1 car? and put gpk in the back with the spare tire
