Called the Fairfield and made the reservation. It has already showed up on my rewards account.

Hahaha! I think they will be ok at the Sheraton! Well...unless we all end up at their room again, which the Sheraton might kick us out!

Hey, I was telling Glenn last week - if you all need any help, let us know. I would prefer not to lead a run, but I'm happy to sweep. I didn't want to fill out the leader question/contact thinger since we know I'll try to weasel my way out of leading if I can!
But more than just helping on runs - let us know when you are ready! We all got together and we agreed - the NEO Kappas are at your disposal! Use us and abuse us!!

Just doing my thingy... :)

Would that work for you?

That will work!

However it does shoot down the vision of me sitting back drinking a bloody mary while some bikini clad college co-ed is playing all sudsy with FLASHED

Then put on your entrepreneur hat, hire a tent, get some bikini clad coed for the guys and a few muscular young men for the women owners, and set up a car wash/detail operation in the parking lot. You'll probably need to kick in a few bucks to the hotels, but I'm guessing it'll be a hit, if the weather cooperates.

Find some local charity High School / college swim team??? Not sure how much they would make but you never know.

I do not claim to be a GM representative, all of my postings are my own interpretation and personal opinions.

There will definitely be do-it-yourself car wash areas with hoses, buckets, and a variety of car washing soaps, sponges, brushes, etc. You will need your own towels and, if you are foolish enough to use cotton, I have been told by the hotels that they will be watching for people using theirs. It seems they have hosted automobile events before .....

We are looking at some of the local detail shops to see if we can work out a deal for one or more of them to offer professional detailing. I am not making any statements whatsoever about bikinis or muscles, except to say that "You never know."

Regarding runs and their leaders: I haven't started pushing it yet, but so far I have had exactly zero people respond to the website questionnaire about their choices of runs to lead, and no run leaders means no runs.

The resort we have used for a long time for our WISols Dells weekend has been providing us with (well used) cotton towels for the past several years. They leave a bunch of well-worn half towels at each of the entrance/exit doors to the parking lot, and they expect us to use the proffered towels on the cars rather than the towels from the rooms. It works well for them, and we get free car towels.

It doesn't work if the hotel is renting towels and linens from a service, but if they own there own towels and linens and launder them on site, they always have some that are well worn or torn or otherwise too damaged to put back into service in the rooms. It costs the hotel practically nothing to provide the towels to their car crazy room renting customers.

I know we appreciated having a towel available, if needed, for our use in the cars.

It's too bad that they decided to bring in a larger group on the weekend we always went there, so we're trying a different resort this year. We'll be sharing the parking lot with Corvettes this fall.

Anyway, just an idea.

I thought I had responded, but if not, here you go. I'll lead whatever you need (on the days that I will be there).

Everything takes longer than it seems like it should, but we are almost there. We have finalized the costs, and the website is essentially complete. We should be open for registration before Christmas.

Awesome! I just wanted to bump it for some of the new folks who might not know about it.

Johnny, er, Stungjoe on the spot!

I didn't know about it, and was wondering about this sort of thing. If I can coordinate the others in the household I will be there. If I can't coordinate them, I will still probably be there. I just emailed a buddy to see if he'd be interested in going along - of course if Mama doesn't want to/can't go. She needs the vacation more than I do: I'm off all summer long.

Glad you bumped it. Thank you.

This Sky's not perfect, but it's perfect...for me
