We recommend calling the hotels directly versus using the 1-800 number or booking online because the actual hotel knows the group better than the national number or online system.
Anybody that does not need a double room, please leave for the folks that do. They are all the same price and you actually have more room in the King vs. the Double Bed rooms. Also, many of the King rooms have a sofa with a pull-out bed in it.
There are many room variations at BOTH locations, ask them what is available for each night of stay for the number of people you are bringing.
Bring DAD and the rest of the family for the weekend and have some fun!!! Plenty for the entire family to enjoy.

The Caravans The LX is a head-turner all by itself, imagine the scene you'll be making as you and your fellow LX owners roll down the highway and into Columbus 10... 20... 30 cars deep!!! Its much more fun to ride out to an event with a group of folks rather than make the trip alone. If you are organizing a caravan to the LX & Beyond Nationals, please let us know so we can add your caravan to the list.

I have decided to get a room for Friday night. Not sure if their is any interest in still caravaning down from MI, if interested please post in the links below so that your input is heard. Otherwise I will see everyone down there.
The polls have become moot. I guess I put them up too soon and circumstances have changed.
1) Make sure Jeremy leads the Cincy caravan again.
2) Add some sort of swap meet.
3) Press release for local news, car TV shows and national car mags.
4) Upgrade the MC for welcome speech and prize giveaway.
5) Have warm weather so models can disrobe.
Mr Morgan <-- professional announcer, will work for free
Can we move it to a Sunday? I know people whod want to go and same with me, but gotta work Saturdays...plus thats a far @$$ drive, but id most def do it if stereos are allowed
I figured most folks would like to have a day to unwind after driving down/back and hanging out all day? Also, having it on Sunday may conflict with people that have religious commitments?
There was a fairly large caravan that came from your area last year, so you will have plenty of company during the drive down.

I will try to get the day off though! And I dont vote for all LXs. I say all Mopars, excluding none. I have some people with 3 Darts with 440s, so they would def join if it was "legal".
Since this is primarily an LX event it would either be LX's only, or LX's and invite the SRT family of vehicles. Inviting every Mopar is logistically not reasonable. However, it would be nice to have some old school Mopar that coincided with the current LX's (i.e. Charger, Challenger, 300)

*fyi - for all the folks that are sticklers for detail. (*cough* *cough* *Roger*) Summer does not officially begin until Jun 21, so its still a spring M&G.
