We hope that you'll be able to make it but your registration will help our club qualify for a tent.

Might be the only event I'll attend this year- at least this is how it is looking in January.

I registered in December to get the discount. Just need to cross my fingers now.

I wonder how club participation is going to work (ie. what club name are we all registering under). I already registered with 2GN.org, but I'd imagine I've got several months to change it.

I think that we should stick with registering under 2GN for the head count that diablo0 mentioned to qualify for the tent.

I PM'ed Darian (doerun) to maybe add that to the sticky. I thought it was mentioned, but I didn't see it scanning through the discussion.

Harrisburg West? :) Anybody?

Also, for me personally, I never had a problem with Motel 6. If we end up back there, I'm good with that.

*****UPDATE********** PLEASE READ ALL INFO....********

Just to let everyone know I WAS able to get us back to the hotel we were at last year. Capital Inn, (Now is a MOTEL 8) Took a bit of work to get everything set up.. but we should be good to go...

we will be on the 3rd floor, these are the newly renovated rooms.
pool, assigned neon/2gn parking lot etc.

I have setup...

10 single beds at $65 a night
15 double beds at $75 a night

when calling you will need to speak with Rufus or Ihab
you will need to say you are with Mike and the Neon Group

Phone Number is (717)774-6200

they will take all your information and put your info on file.

after you setup your room please message me with name you put your room under, and what days you are staying. I will be keeping a list myself and checking that my list is the same as what they have..

For those who do not want to stay at this Hotel or if it fills up I do have a backup plan setup with the Harrisburg West. Message me for more info.

If these hotels are not for you, there are about 8 others in the same area.

I tried Harrisburg west they would have taken us but we would have been forced into the grass to hang out. Absolutely no sitting in the parking lot ,SAME went for motel 6.

Capital Inn will give us the same setup as last year.. dedicated parking lot to ourselves

They are remaining fairly optimistic...

At this point in time, I don't know that I would order a Die Cast that is "pick up" only.

As much as I want to be wrong, I am not going to hold my breath that things are going to be even close to where they were two months ago.

Even if they are open, I'm betting attendance numbers will be down greatly. There are a lot of older folks that attend, that may not be so willing to risk their health. And they probably make up at least half, or maybe more(?) of the attendees.

And they are probably the ones that spend a little more liberally overall. Most of the older age group car clubs seem stay at hotels closer to the fairgrounds also. Probably because they can better afford it, and don't want to make the drive we do. Nothing wrong with that, it is what it is.



There is certainly nothing wrong with optimism, but...

Exactly what I have been silently thinking for some time now. I am hoping that it turns out that I've been wrong.

If you are looking to attend as a non-car showing spectator you can do so at 25% off listed online ticket pricing. Again, discounts are available in advance by phone or online at CarlisleTickets.com only. A nominal $1 processing fee applies for online orders, but this isn’t just 25% off what you would pay for a ticket at the gate, it’s 25% off an already discounted online price point. Full price applies at the gate. Online discounts are no longer valid beginning Monday of a show week for your particular show.
Hmmm, nervous much?

I doubt even "free" will sway people that have made up their minds to avoid large gatherings.


It's probably going to be a tough season for the vendors.

I've decided to brave it. I'm wondering when Ed and crew will make the invitational decisions known? Five years ago, the results were announce in mid-March.

I think this will be a day-of decision for me, literally. Honestly, the showfield doesn't worry me at all. I expect a lot of people to skip this year entirely. Theoretically, that should make social distancing easier. It's the hotel that skeeves me out. It's laughable to think that budget hotels out there are doing anything differently in the midst of this pandemic.

So I think I'm going to pick a day, either Friday or Saturday, drive there, enjoy myself for the day, and drive home. Driving 800+ miles in the same day only to end up where I started doesn't faze me at all. I didn't build the Daytona to look at. :)

Lots could change by then, but that's where I am right now. This would be my 15th consecutive year, and the 12th overall for the Daytona.

A sanitized hotel? Probably no worse than they ever have been. Corona would just have to do battle with everything else that's already been there! :lol:

I always pack a can of Lysol and spray everything down in the motel bathroom. And never go barefoot in a motel room- always wear flip flops.

1. Carlisle Events has not given me a "yay" or "nay" about my car being in the Invitational, even though the application promised that applicants would be informed no later than 6 weeks prior to the event. How could I make plans?
2. They are not answering their office phone.
3. Even if the western portion of PA has a green status by event time, a gathering of this size will still be prohibited.
4. Gas stations and restaurants during my drive from Indiana to Pennsylvania might not be open and I don't like surprises.
5. I don't know if there might be social unrest during my drive there and back.
6. Our club organizers have stated that we will be on our own if we attend.

I'll try to make it next year.
