my "in" has nothing but good news..... we can get max 4 rooms between 2 hotels in OLDSMAR, at AWESOME prices. BUT he says he's not sure how long the prices will last.

tentative head count on who NEEDS a room, and is fairly certain they will in the Box De Bigs come the last week in February?????

starting to come together pepper!!!

Gonna make the pitch this weekend. Probably going to try the Wednesday morning to early Saturday morning play. This way I'm back home for Saturday and the boys.

One question, is golf on the itinerary? If so, I'm going to need to bring a second suitcase for golf balls.

I'm 6 one, half dozen the other when it comes to golf this year. I can be talked into it or out of it. Trying to arrange all that sh*t last time was the equivilant of herding cats, and God knows my history when it comes to herdimg p*ssy.

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.
You gotta be kidding me. I go to book this a little bit ago and now Southwest is telling me this package is now $714. F*ck off.

WHOA!!! I'm not 100% certain, but I think I have just slipped into a time warp??? Nice Avatar!

Not recommending, just saying, it's about a 6 hour drive from Cary to Jacksonville, then another 3 from here to Tampa. Give or take....

I get it, and I agree with you. Just offering up an alternative option.

My guy came up big with 2 rental cars at massive discount. Im gonna pick up one on Tuesday and Heels or 3Kings will get the other on Thursday. If we can all coordinate arrival times, we should be able get everyone picked up and dropped off.

I hit a little roadblock the other night. I'll have to re-address the situation in a couple of days
