    I think I scerwed up???

    OK so I was looking over the dates and cites again and the FAQ link Kurt included earlier and I was wondering if I screwed up my reservations.

    I have a room booked on Friday Night the 1st in Detroit which I believe in the Courtyard in Novi, assuming we would be at the GM proving grounds that day.

    So Saturday night on the 2nd of June I booked a room at the next stop in Muskegon, MI, thinking we would drive there during the day and need a place that night so we could get up the next day hang out in Muskegon and travel on to Champaign, IL later on.

    the 3rd is the same way I booked a room in Madison, Il for that night thinking we would stay and be ready for the event at Gateway the following morning!

    Am I correct in this thinking or did I book the wrong dates for the entire power tour??

    Just a little confused at this point and hope I haven't screwed myself on the hotel situation.

    Someone please let me know or confirm what I am thinking so I can quit worrying.

    Thought you were looking to stay at my place on Friday and caravan up Saturday?


    For those attending the Power Tour I am thinking about having a get together/cookout Friday at my house, which is right on the way for several people, and heading up Saturday to Novi. I am located in Ottawa, OH (20 mins west of I75, 60 miles south of Toledo). Findlay has several hotels available which is 20 minutes from my house right on I75 if you would want to stay there Friday night, and its about a 2 hour drive to Novi from there. There is plenty of room for parking (I live on a dead end road in the subdivision), and garage space is available in case some needs to do some work.

    Wow I feel stupid!

    Well it looks more and more like I screwed up!!
    Man I feel stupid, but in my defense I wasn't sure of the entire Power Tour schedule, so it made sense what I did at the time.

    Anyway now that I know we are staying in the city listed that night and cruising to the next city the following morning I just hope I can adjust my reservations this evening when I get home.

    If I can't fix this, anybody care to share a room w/ 2 queen beds and split the cost with my wife and I! LOL

    God I hope I can fix this!

    My one for Friday night in Novi is good, just have to make another one at the same place and move all the others up a night. That doesn't look promising though.

    Most of the hotels are tied to Marriott so you can just call 1-800-321-2211. I also signed up for a Marriott Rewards card. All of my reservations are tied together under 1 number.

    I did stray slightly from the hotels Kurt listed.

    1. Instead of Hampton Inn Holland, I went with the Fairfield Inn Holland. (.1 miles away)
    2. I had to go with the backup hotel Fairfield Inn & Suites in Edmond
    3. I went with Spring Hill Suites instead of Townplace Suites in Arlington. (.29 miles away) They were a little pricey to get 2 beds.

    Don't worry, I'm not even sure what the dates are exactly. I could look at them, but I won't remember them 2 seconds later. IN fact, I didn't even book any rooms. YOu just can't get too worked up about stuff like this.

    My priority is (1) get car running (2) go to Detroit. If I can get there at the right time, everything should work out.

    Thursday June 7 Stillwater, OK - Kicker Corporate Complex (BEST WESTERN PLUS Cimarron Hotel & Suites in Stillwater) , (backup reservation: Fairfield Inn & Suites Edmond)

    It is confusing. I added this statement to the original post.

    NOTE: The date is the hotel check-in date.

    OK all fixed

    Well not as bad as I was fearing! All reservations have been changed to the right dates and I only had to change hotels on 2 of them, but still in the same location/towns!!

    All in all not a big deal.

    Micah you are just a wild man!! Laid back and take it as it comes, I admire that. Good luck with your travel pans, or should I say without your travel plans!!,

    Smitty,

    The only reason Micah is all laid back, is because someone else took care of all the reservation details.

    Ahh, but I didn't know that until after the fact! The way I figure, I'll be with someone. And they will probably let me in their room. And if they don't have a room, they will probably keep me company while sharing an alley. And if that doesn't work, I'm going to have Obama comp it for me and bill Andy.

    A little Bump

    I realize this event is about 2 1/2 months away, but I was wondering a few things.

    What time are folks arriving in Detroit? Friday Night, Sat Morning??

    Any idea what we might want to do when everyone arrives??

    Anyone going to try and attend these events below as part of the Ppower Tour?

    Friday June 1, 9am – 6pm: Power Tour registration and credential pick-up open at Warren City Hall.

    · Friday Afternoon: “Free Prix” day at the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix

    · Friday Night: Power Tour Pre-Party and Cruise in Downtown Mount Clemens from 5pm – 10pm.

    · Saturday Night June 2: Cruise on over to join the City of Warren as it hosts its “Afterglow” party from 7pm-11pm with a cruise in, live entertainment, food and fun

    I am going to PM my Cell # to folks I know are going so we can start sharing and coordinating our group. I am really excited about this as it will be the first time I have ever done anything like this.

    Should be a great time. Hopefully weather will be good as well.

    Anyway, any thoughts.

    I don't think we've talked about it, but I planned on getting to Detroit Friday evening, probably too late for anything planned that day. As far as Saturday goes, I'm game for whatever and would like to make the most of it.

    Yeah, we haven't talked about it. I think it would be nice to arrive early enough Friday to pick up the registration stuff, but we'll have to wait and see when we all want to leave the area.
