Any recommendations on a hotel? Any local events likely to make availability a problem?

Driving directions?

If you're still in Farmville its a straight shot down hwy 15. Take that to Oxford, NC, and get on highway 96 south. Continue on 96 to get to the meet or head south on highway 1 to get to Wake Forest for hotel etc. I'll PM you the address.

Everyone usually stays in Wake Forest. Best pricing and close by. No local events that I know of. All of these showed rooms available. Check with Ron I think he stays at the same hotel every time; other than that, here are the hotels in WF:

Clarion Pointe Wake Forest - Raleigh North

Thanks for the hotel information, Dan. No - I moved out to southwest VA about 11 years ago - just off of I-81 near Roanoke (home of the big choo-choo). You knew that but just forgot.

Sorry - I didn't really mean driving directions. Just the address, as I'll use Waze to get there.

I've stayed at the Hampton and Fairfield Inn hotels about an equal number of times. The Hampton is nicer but more more expensive than the Fairfield. The Hampton being a subset of the Hiton chain of hotels. If you don't mind spending more...my recommendation would be the Hampton.

Fellars - Sorry to say I have to cancel. Got a family situation - SIL (brother's wife) has been in the hospital with long-term health and age-related things all coming together, now has pneumonia, hospice being arranged. Need to be here to support my brother.

Was really looking forward to being with the gang.

Have a great time! 🎉 🏎
