Good Evening: Someone asked a couple of questions this week I thought I'd address publicly. One pertained whether NASSAM participants were getting special discounts. Well, we do hope to get some response from some folks that may be able to help us out in that regard, but no promises. The hotel room rates are discounted by about $30 per night. Remember, we are a small group relatively speaking, consequently businesses in the area have been very friendly, but they have plenty of business during the time frame we're there. Others have asked about vendors, likely there will not be any on site. Most of the historical vendors are still supporting with donations for the auctions, but it has become expensive for them to travel with relatively a lesser amount of business from the Kappa community as compared to newer cars. This is an event to catch up with old friends and see a part of the country perhaps you've never visited, we hope that a good time will be had by all. We have our meet and greet Monday, Poker Walk Tuesday, Ice Cream Social and group photo Wednesday, car show Thursday and a banquet Friday with drives every day. Hopefully you'll be busy.:)

Hello:
Received an email asking whether there was an ongoing mailing list from year to year for NASSAM. There is not, each year there is a different team of folks who set up the events. Typically, there will be a Facebook page and to a lesser extent sometimes the forums are kept up to date. Each year there is also a unique website. Here are the links for this year:
Website (What's New) - https://www.nassam2022.com/whatsnew
Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/groups/1102256869915619
Solstice Forum - 17th Annual NASSAM - Rapid City | Page 2 | Pontiac Solstice Forum
Sky Forum - 17th Annual NASSAM - Rapid City | Saturn Sky Forum (skyroadster.com)

Hope to see you in June. If not, next year's event is in Beckley, WV. I'm sure you'll hear about that in June at the event, if not, there should be a website shortly thereafter as usual.
Have a great week everyone.

As far as Rapid City, there are no more hotel opening anywhere in Rapid City. Still waiting on a reply on refund for registration. Anyone?

Good Morning: There are rooms available for a couple more days. When you click on the link to the hotel reservations page, you initially get a message that there are no rooms available. But you mush put in your dates and then refresh the page. I also sent you an email on the subject. We will refund your registration if you choose not to attend. Apologies for any confusion. Best regards, Rick

Hello folks: Hey, just a reminder. If you wish to get a room at the Best Western please make your reservation in the next two days before we have to return the unused portion of our block of rooms. See you in June! If you have questions please email us at [email protected].

Here is some local news, the on ramp eastbound where you may plan to get on the highway from LaCrosse street is closed for a while, see link:
You can take Eglin down to North street, left at the light and get on the eastbound highway.
You may want to plan accordingly.
Gas at the nearby Sam's Club, on Eglin, is currently at $4.63 a gallon and one of the lowest prices in the area.

That's some good info right there. Thanks!

Given the location for parking at the hotel, the simplest way to get to the eastbound entrance is from East Mall Drive to the North Street I-90 eastbound entrance. The one event that uses eastbound I-90 is the group photograph. Directions to the Air and Space Museum will be available in the registration room. See you soon.

Anyone have a bead on an e85 gas station in the area? Asking for a friend :whistle:

Also, my wife and I will be camping. Anyone else living the campground life?

Additionally, we'll be attending the Pikes Peak Hill Climb on Sunday, and will arrive at NASSAM mid day Tuesday.
Will this be problematic?

Get the gas buddy app. You can find e85 along your route and the pricing if it’s available.

I’m struggling enough on how we’re going to bring all of our luggage and essentials and we’re staying in hotels there and along the way. How are you getting camping gear in there? Are you trailering in?

We are planning on arriving officially Tuesday as well since Monday and Tuesday runs were all booked up when we registered. We will probably hit up Mt Rushmore Tuesday after we arrive if you care to join us. The only event you will be missing is the Monday night meet n greet. I figured I would get some meeting and greeting in the rest of time.

I like to go backpacking, and have compact camping gear. Worst case, my wife drives the GR86 with gear.
I would love to see if we could meet up at Rushmore

Arriving Tuesday is not a problem. The registration room is open each day from 7 AM to 3 PM. On Tuesday we'll be heading to Deadwood

There is no problem with coming in on Tuesday. Please just keep in mind that the registration room is open from 7 AM to 3 PM and then again from 8 PM to 9 PM that day. Or you can check in Wednesday at 7 AM. The poker walk in Deadwood is Tuesday evening, thus the late hours that day.

As for the E85 gas, I'm afraid I didn't go looking for that. Each goodie bag has information on local pharmacies, hospitals, etc. and gas stations...but I didn't check on the E85. I'll have to check around when we get there next week.

I'll try to figure that out and let folks know.
