February 13, 2008Ok everybody! Here we go!
Good news an bad news about this one! But, we're good. Hotel Carlisle is not, an will not be taking room blocks anymore. Reason being! For the past 3/4 years. The rooms were never being claimed. Groups would get some 20/30 rooms, an only have half of them picked up. That turned in lost money for the hotel. Even thou the hotel looked booked, they had alot of empty rooms. You know the deal, if they knew they had those rooms. They could have booked them. The one very big problem was, nobody would cancel the rooms. If you have a group of, lets say 20 rooms. An you know you only filled 15, an that gonna be it. They would never cancel them. Hotel Carlisle has a 24 cancel thing, with no lost of money. They also had, what ever rooms that were NOT claimed from a block, prior to 1 MONTH before the event. Those rooms were automatically dropped from the block, an given to stray event people. Or people just in Carlisle for vacation.
So, in the event of them (Hotel Carlisle) not blocking rooms anymore. I took it upon myself to block 25 rooms under ME! We again have the 500 Block as last year. Will cost $111.00 a night! Which if I believe, is cheaper then last year. Also have word of no problems again this year with the cops. Last years we had no problems, an that was good.
So, if anyone is interested in getting a room for the All-Truck Nationals! You must use my name (Jeff Andrews) in care of Ford Truck World. Rooms are booked under my name, so you must use my name.
So,, please if you're planning to go. An get a room. Please show up. If ya can't make it. Give it to someone else who might be looking for a room. Or let me know, I'll see if I can help. Maybe find someone. Or I'll just wait till last minute, an cancel 24 hours prior. You all know how that works. You cancel early, an then someone needs a room.
Those that are definitely going! You can call me (856-336-2486) or e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org An I will give you a confirmation number for a room. You can either wait or call Hotel Carlsile with that confirmation number an have it put into your name. Jennifer and I have it all set-up. That you can do it either way!
Remember, event is August 8th thru the 10th!
Really not much about this. I've been in contact will Rich, acouple times. We have our same spot as last year! AN have a 20X20 tent as of now! If we get up to 50 trucks, we'll be upgrade to 20X30, 75 trucks 20X40!
Registration is now open! If you haven't seen Rich's post here in the Events Forum! An we lost to FSC (Full-Size Chevy) last, after winning some 6/7 years in a row! Terrible! Pre-Registration is a BIG factor. If ya plan on going! Please register early! It means alot!
