    one of the reasons, I think, why Family Events holds the tour stops announcements, until they can block out some hotel rooms, then raise rates......

    • We got in at the HIE in Urbana before the city or Family Events made any kind of announcement.

        • I have noticed that several of us are staying at the Six Flags "Maingate" hotels in Arlington. Does anyone plan to actually go to Six Flags after the Long Haul Awards? Want to do a "Forum Freaks Roller-coaster Tour"?

                  I am probably going to hit the park after some of the show on friday afternoon before all the parking lot fun hits on friday night!!! I am a season pass holder here in Chicago so it is a free entry for me.

                  • OH, that could be interesting. A bunch of salutes, generally means the pics they take on the coaster get...AHEM...blocked off...

                    Adding myself to this thread to keep tabs. I have not started to look yet. Keeping things tentative, but need to start booking.

                        don't know where he got it but he said he got it from family events

                        My guess is it will be at Gateway International Speedway, which is actually in Madison, IL but there are no hotels there and in between ST Louis and Collinsville (Gateway was closed for 2010 and 2011 but someone bought it and is re-opening it for 2012)

                        • If Collinsville,Il. is correct.....then SPRINGFIELD,MO. is a good choice for the next day. 233 miles.

                          Stillwater,Ok. 255 miles from Springfield,MO. JMWAG

                          • Springfield would be a nice choice.

                            • Champaign to Collinsville, IL has Effingham right in the middle (possible lunch stop again??) then Collinsville is very close to ST Louis so it would be RT66 All the way from ST Louis to Stillwater.... and what is smack dab in the middle and on RT66 between those 2???? You guessed it....Springfield, MO

                              Also there is a good size fairgrounds there, and a Drag Strip there too...could it be 2 days at the Strips again?

                              My guess is Springfield, MO for sure now!

                              • In the spirit of booking rooms to anticipate the rush, I grabbed a room at ST. LOUIS-FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS
                                313 SALEM PLACE, FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, ILLINOIS which is just south of Collinsville.
