Then she said she would take my reservation anyway and fix the block of rooms later. I made a reservation for 4 nights (M-T) and she quoted me a rate of $115 per night for a double queen. I told her our rate was supposed to be $109 and that I wasn't going to quibble over $6 per night (although that is a dinner at a nice place). She said no problem and then gave me a rate of $109.99. I pointed out that all of our rates we listed on our website at even dollars (no $.99) and she said OK then we go with that. I eventually got my room booked and got a confirmation number but to tell you the truth, I'm not the least bit confident we won't have issues. Plus, isn't that only about a 5.5% discount over regular rates or am I missing something?

I suggest someone call them and get it all straightened out before we go much further. (Update: Goldwings 4 ever saw this post and is on it!)

So, I guess I can say "My reservations are made, wooohooo!".
One of the problems with this type of event is that attendance is voluntary and that makes the numbers difficult to guarantee so I think the hotel hedges their bet compared to a corporate event where the company picks up the tab and people are ordered to attend, thus guaranteeing a full house.

Nor do we get involved by collecting deposits to ensure attendance.

Keep in mind like everything else here there is a tax of 13% on top of what you see on the price list. The exceptions are gasoline, booze at a liquor outlet (not restaurant). Those have the multitude of taxes built in so BYOB or lots of drinking money. Most groceries are tax exempt with the exception of soda beverages or any drink with sugar. Pure juices are exempt.

It is still better then NASSIR in Buffalo, the hotel charged $15.00 a night more then their regular rate for the gathering. Now that's service.

No question A.T.G.A.T.T. (Even when it's stinking hot!!)
And if it's too stinking hot to gear up, it's too stinking hot to ride.

If your not man enough to take the lead, stop complaining from behind.

I SURVIVED NASSIR 9.... barely.

Our closest campground is Norfolk Conservation Authority, but we can't make reservations until spring. I'll post more info as I get it.

Yeah - Everywhere but here.... We got a boatload of snow yesterday. Everything is covered in white crap. Normally, our campgrounds up here open up for business second to third week of May. That is when we can almost guarantee no more snow ...

Well, today is the 24th of May, and it snowed some today. So much for that almost guarantee of no more snow. It didn't stick to anything as it was mixed with rain. It is expected to drop below freezing tonite and kill all the cherry and apple blossoms. Hope we get spring by the 16th of July, this year, Hawwwwwww, hahahahaha, snork.

Riding a Goldwing DOES NOT mean I have stopped being a biker....
