been poking around the site and looking up hotel info. a hotel "block" is usually 10+ hotels rooms to get a dicount. Do ya'll think that is doable?



May the odds be ever in you favor.....

SAB | The South Adventures Bash/Meet - using Wild Adventures theme park as the mainstay ? lol

SEGME | South Eastern GM meet ?


Probably a little corny, but that's how my mind works:

SEGWAe (like Segway just to make sure I'm clear) Meet -South East GM Wild Adventures Meet?

I'm very interested and I would need a hotel room to get the wife to come along. If we could block off a floor we could have a nice little party,as well

I'd be staying in a hotel thats 2 nights I need to sleep lol
I'm sure we can get at least 10 rooms rented out.

If I don't hear back from the track today I'm gonna call Monday and see if they have any test/tune dates early in 2013.

^^ Price is not that bad, but you have to be careful with La Quinta inn's. Some are nice others are not.

Even went to hotels.com and kayak.com, etc and the cheapest was $84 for a 2 star hotel.
I think that is a good price and maybe we can get it lower a little bit with a group all going to the same hotel.
Was hoping to hear back from the raceway today but no word
As soon as I find the test/tune nights for 2013 we can start deciding on a date and start really planning and getting the word out.
Right now I know of about 10 people who want to go 90%.
Maybe 15 with a "maybe" depending on when we have the bash.

But I think the Location part of the bash is done.

Name:*SEGWA Bash?
Location:Valdosta, GA
Date:TBA
Time/s:TBA


*As for the name, I love the idea of SEGWAe Bash.
South Eastern GM Wild Adventures Bash, its still technically pronounced "SEGWAY" lol



Re: south east meet in 2013?

going with the "SEGWA" name, maybe we could make the Bash logo look somewhat like a Segway with "SEGWA" as the base of the SEGWAY and then spell out the full name underneath.

I think name wise take out wild adventures. Southeastern GM Meet (meet over Bash).

Unless Wild Adventures is going to do something for us, I do not think you put their name in it. Also keeps it clear from issues with using their name.

^^^ Agree here.

I'm all in, just need to know when it'll be. With any luck, this will reignite some fading j love in the community.

That's the hope for me Evan.

Then I suppose we'll just call it the South Eastern GM Meet.

Hopefully I'll hear back from the racetrack about when they have test/tune nights and we can put out some dates for people(really itching to be able to make a event page on FB, think thats going to be our biggest means of reaching out and keeping track of whose going/whose not).

And its $25 for the test/tune.
Gates open at 6pm and the T&T is 7pm-10pm.

We will likely get lucky and they have Saturday daytime test and tune times. I know in the early part of the year they usually have day time starting around noon.

But once we know what exactly they have it will make for better planning.

I just looked on the racetracks website and they have some local hotels listed. One of which is a Holiday Inn. I went ot the page and did the last weekend in May as a normal person and they have rooms as low as $98, which is a few dollars more than the group rate above. So maybe if we approach them for a group rate we could beat that price.

I think a little earlier. That is why if we can get the test and tune dates and times, we can pick the weekend that would be best. April or early May. That is 8-9 months from now. Should be more than enough time to plan.

Sooo I know weather is prolly the last thing on every1s mind but we usually get alooot of rain and storms around here in may....my vote would go for the 1st or mid April...or possibly a bit earlier when the temp is still very pleasant.



Re: south east meet in 2013?

Why not check with Wild Adventures to see if they would do something? Kinda like Silver Springs with the meet coming up here in October? Not expecting free tickets with registration or anything but maybe get a section of the parking lot blocked off for us and discounted admissions? Just throwing out some ideas.

I would agree if we were doing a actual show. I'm taking this more as a big meet.

Also being as this would be the first might be better to start low key and see the turnout and plan for bigger if the out come supports it later.

Sounds like a good idea to me. I also second the vote for bumping it down to the beginning of April. Hell, maybe even some time in March. I know down here, even April is pretty hot and the winters seem to be getting shorter every year. I don't know about you guys, but standing around in the heat and humidity, sweating my fat ass off isn't very fun
