Can someone send Rich all the details on this event so he can post it up on the main site? If you are not quite detailed on it that's okay but let's get it up there so we can start filling in next year's events on the svtcobraclub website. Of course, we can just link everything over to the SCC website from that one.

Edmond, you ever get a counter for the Sout Central Region website yet? I'm curious to know what kind of traffic we get there??? Let me know please.... ;)

Nancy, we'd like for you to join us, but not sure if we want the whole SVTOA group along as well. Too many people will lead to lost people and no one wants that. I don't want to exclude anyone, but let's keep it within our group(you are still a part of our group aren't ya??? ;) ). Thanks.

Michael that is a good question. As you and the rest of the club has not seen the coupe I may bring it on the trip. Provided I don't get shunned by all the cobras. The coupe has a Paxton SN 2000 blower on it (only 5# boost) but I think it can hang with most of the cobras except the 03's. It is my daily driver and it would be a good excuse to clean it up and let it shine for a day or two. I think the next Dyno Day I will get it on the roller and see what it will make for HP.

Ok gang, I got some information on Hotel reservations...

so far the front runner is the Austin Radisson (http://www.radisson.com/hoteldirectory/hotelbio.jsp?hotelCode=TXAUSTDT&origin=Hotel%20Directory&backURI=%2Freservation%2FhotelPreference.do)

here is a map of where it is, located right on the Bat Bridge and extremely close to 6th Street with covered parking...

this is by no means final, just some preliminary stuff I want to get opinions on.

here is pricing. (tax and robbery... eh I mean extras not included)(all the extra's and taxes add up to about %15)

1 King size bed room: $99
2 Double size bed room: $109
Indoor parking: $10
Indoor parking valet(yeah... right :321: ) : $15



this is pretty cheap... since when I stayed there for a convention it was $160 for the 2 double room.

their requirements are to reserve before 4 weeks of the trip, if you must cancel, it has to be done by 6pm same day.

What do yall think?

trust me $100 is not alot for that kinda place... especially with it be right where we wanna walk to 6th street and not have to drive anywhere....

I think if it saves you a buck I would stay with a relative if I could
:)


also those people who will by flying solo, can always share a room with someone that they are comfortable with..

I'm gonna call the hotel and see if we can get some $$$ off the rooms since it looks like we have a large number, see if the SCMC membership can benefit us a little to scare them and give us a break. :thumbsup:

Well people, I sent out emails to confirm just how many of you are actually going to go to Austin, and out of the 22 people who signed up, 10 have emailed to confirm that they are going for sure. I am about to reserve the block of rooms and lock the pricing, but I am being forced to only reserve 14 rooms since noone else is commiting. If we go over the 14 rooms, then we are gambling on availablility. If I didn't email you, sorry about that, and if I did and you forgot about it, please get word to me on what you are planning on doing. Once the rooms are reserved, we have till February 6th to make reservations, and everyone is responsible for making their own reservations.

Let me know.

Thanks,
Edmond

The lady was supposed to call me to let me know that people can call and reserve the rooms, but she didn't so I guess I will give her a call and then email everyone the # to reserve the rooms.

The other plans are being finalized as we speak...

Stan,

I still have to confirm if my son may go with me (doubtful) or a friend at work, but yes if I do go solo then we can definitely split a room. I guess we should go ahead and each reserve a room and when we have to guarantee the resv. then decide.

If you are putting off making the reservation, I wouldn't wait too much longer. Just got off the phone with them, and in addition to a wedding party - South by Southwest (huge music festival) is going on that weekend. They said we need to check in as early as possible to help guarantee the room type. They will guarantee a room, but can't guarantee bed/smoking choice if they run out of your prefrence before you check in.

I'm gonna call today to see who all already made their reservations, and I'm gonna get after those of you who haven't yet :mad: Only 7 more days left counting today. :p

sorry Gary, the bad news about Brad last Sunday had forced us to put the trip planning on the back burner.

Here is a general outline of the trip as were it stands now... we will be meeting somewhere off 290 between 10-11 on Saturday (time hasn't been finalized since we are trying to accomodate everyone around their morning schedule). We will break for lunch on the way up, and be in Austin somewhere in the afternoon.. right now the hill country cruise is be debated, since none of us realized that it was a 200+ mile trip past Austin. Saturday night, we are in the process of finding a restaurant to everyone's liking. Checkout will be @ 12 I believe on Sunday morning, and I'm sure we will be stopping for lunch on the way back to Houston.

Well that in a nut shell is the plan...
