I have just received the information on the hotels and the rates there of. Please read the information carefully and let me know what you wish to do. M&I will likely ride out Friday and return Sunday. We'll be staying at the Marriott as it is the main location of the event. Pam will probably share a room with us as usual. That way we can split the cost 3 ways.
The email reads as follows:
The information on hotels for the NATIONAL Rally at Charleston, WV 18 -21 July 2013 is provided below. Please pass it to your members asap as there has been a lot of effort from International and National to get the best rates possible for our members.
We provide two Hotels. Both will have double rooms and some king rooms same cost. Both provide hot breakfast, pools and a safe location. There is a large price difference between both but is based in the category, willingness to negotiate, and other amenities.
