    I'm still very tempted, on the fence at this point.

    Just noticed Watkins Glen is in the Finger Lakes wine region and sits at the southern tip of Seneca Lake and the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. Hmmm, yet more tempting...

    Are you all staying around the same area? I am really thinking about going and would love to be close to the MINIacs from C3M. :Thumbsup:

    You can try getting a room in WG but that might be hard at this late date.
    I'm staying in Horsehead(about 15-20 min. away) as are others, but I know
    that many will stay in Corning/Elmira.

    Idlewild Inn has rooms, but I think I got the last one with a private bath.
    It's 4 miles from the track and is a huge Victorian mansion. The rooms look really nice, even if you have to share a bathroom. It was cheaper that the Budget Inn even.
    I'm going up on Thursday...any one want to caravan from around the Annapolis area?

    We were supposed to go. Bought tickets and everything. Now thanks the sequestration we can't go.

    Is anyone interested in purchasing 3 tickets?

    I am considering attending this event...
    Please help with a question:

    What is the difference between this $35 offer (above) and the $140 Tour de Marque on the registration form from the website (I believe two tickets instead of a single, but what else?)

    Thank you
