    I have talked with most of you about the event via phone and I'm on the hotel room reservations. Most hotel rooms around here are between $49-110. per night. I would recommend using a service like Expedia. If you have any questions regarding local room rates versus the neighborhood they are situated in, CALL ME FIRST! Some of the more cheap hotel/motel rooms are CHEAP FOR A REASON! Meaning you don't want to be there.


    Here are some of the more affordable in decent areas:

    Ramada Inn
    1927 Franklin Road Southwest
    Roanoke, VA 24014-1103
    (540) 343-0121
    Free Internet
    Free Breakfast
    Through Expedia: $50.-$53.00 per night
    Regular Rate: $59.95
    Government Rate: $54.95 per night

    Holiday Inn Express- Roanoke Civic Center
    *(semi-sketchy neighborhood)
    815 Gainsboro Rd.
    Roanoke, VA 24016
    (540) 982-0100
    Expedia Quote: $90.95 per night
    Phone Quote: $99.95
    Government Rate- $96.00-$129.00 (on weekends)
    Free Internet
    Free Breakfast
    Free YMCA Gym Access (next door).

    Those are only a couple...but check Expedia. Anything in/around near downtown Roanoke or the Airport should be fine. Try to coordinate with everyone and stay in roughly the same area to make carpooling/ride-sharing more feasible.

    PLEASE DO NOT DELAY ON THIS. THERE IS SOME KIND OF EVENT GOING ON AND ROOMS ARE DRYING UP RELATIVELY QUICKLY!!!!!


    We have all stayed in some crappy hotel rooms during the course of our adult lives...depends on what you want to spend, I guess. At any rate...contact me directly if you want to know about a particular part of town or something.

    Well...there are plenty of cheaper rooms in the area...and I've not gotten around to price-checking as much as I would've like to at this point.

    REMINDER> Any of you who are law enforcement/fire rescue/contracted govt security, city/state/government employees, .mil or anything similar, likely qualify for a government rate. This often beats paying regular rates on generally only need an ID card of some sort--although in the million or so years of staying in these sorts of hotels, I've never once been asked for my ID Card. So, you should be okay.

    Also...you can save some dollars by sharing rooms with other Bullshido members and it can cut your costs down significantly.

    Paid average $49 a nigh for the 4th-9th thru accept and seemed like a decent place. Just hoping there isn't a mall to close :). Btw is it so wrong to be replying to this forum while doing a surveillance

    Thanks for the heads up, Skele. I've gone ahead and booked a room at the Ramada.

    Okay...here it is...enrollment at Camp Skeletor is officially cut off. We've got 12...and 12 is about all that I can handle. The ? People are the people that I haven't spoken with over the phone.

    1. Mad Malk
    2. Money
    3. Annatrocity
    4. Kid Spatula
    5. Plasma
    6. Stick
    7/8. BadUgly Magic + Son
    9. Scrapper + (Maybe Wife)
    10. Wounded Ronin
    11/12. JnP + NwP

    Maybe? EmetShamash
    Chainpunch



    If you are bringing a significant other (like a wife/girlfriend) and you're not sure if they're going to be able to handle three days of fairly rigorous fun, climbing, sneaking, shooting/getting shot, crawling around in the dark, roughhousing, some defensive tactics, etc---the days will be long--and the nights--well, they'll be full of stuff. Please let me know up front as the slots I'm filling with them could be used by about 5-6 people who are currently on the "waiting list." Roanoke is a pretty cool touristy kind of place with plenty of museums, mountain overlooks (we're in a valley surrounded by mountains), historic areas, and plenty of stuff to do/get into. I'm not suggesting that your significant others are soft/weak/lack heart...but you know what I'm getting at.
