    I wish that the availability of affordable lodging somewhat nearby to the meet had been more of a consideration in selecting the site. Posh (read expensive) hotels, capitalizing on the wine country patrons, make it a bit difficult for the average Joe just trying to enjoy the old motorcycle passion. Why the 4th of July weekend was selected is beyond me, when that was tried at Rhinebeck it didn't work out too well. I know that lack of available judging was an issue when held on Fathers day weekend (2 other national meets), but with the new virtual judging maybe it's a better possibility now. There's a lot to consider when forming a new meet and trying to please everyone is impossible. I'm just throwing some concerns that I, and others talked to, have discussed with each other. Hopefully the meet goes well and is enjoyed by all. Thanks for even having it and filling the void of Rhinebeck no longer happening. Smitty

    We are going for the entire week, found a cabin on Lake Seneca about 10 miles away. Yes, too expensive but we decided this is our summer vacation, so we ponied up the cash. IF the cabin is half of what I think it is, we will be happy. Sitting on the porch with my coffee in the morning looking out over the Lake makes the costs a little more acceptable. Keep in mind they have a limited season up there due to weather, they gotta make their money when they can, sucks for us but I get it.

    For Wildwood, try VRBO, we found a four bedroom condo with a two car garage, half of what it cost us for three hotel rooms the prior year. And it was really, really nice. You need to try the alternatives, motels are doing the same thing, wringing out the last drops of money from their season. That is a real working class town, hard to be mad that they are capitalizing on their last weekend until Memorial Day. Good luck.
