I am absolutely going to try to make this Ken. May have to just head up early Thursday and get back to Richmond early Friday morning, I’m one of those folks that still work Chuck. Probably will bring the new, since last year’s Dragon event, GPW.

For some reason, there are a number of "military academies" in the Central VA area. In no particular order or proximity, Fork Union, Randy-Mac (erm..Randolph Macon), Hargrave, Fishburne, Massanutten. Not sure why, but most have been here for some time.

Please put me down for this event. Just confirmed my reservation at the hotel.

Also checked the menu at Wrights and can hear a Paddy Melt calling me right now! I'll be sure to bring a bib and some cholesterol medicine.

I've run US250 all the way to Wooster Ohio, but never in the S2000. Was considering a solo run up to Elkins and then back on US33 so this is a nice coincidence.

Chuck,
I'm working on trying to get a better rate from the hotel. The registration will be for the Honda S2000 group. I'll make a formal announcement when the block is together (probably Monday). As soon as it's together, you can call and cancel your present reservation and then request a new reservation and get the new (hopefully much, but definitely) lower rate.

I think the guy had me on hold while he talked to you when I called to make my reservation. I’m booked for both nights. I just changed jobs and that will my first quarter end so something may cause a change, but I don’t anticipate any issue.

Again, see my message to Chuck. I'm trying to get a better rate and will have an answer on Monday.

Probably, I was on the phone for a while doing some serious negotiation.
