Keep the ideas coming.... I am open. I like to make sure there is a good place we can all stay at.Wife, Kids and I will be there for the 65th anny deal. Hopefully my car will finally be put back together also...
A few years ago Sheena and I stayed at the Country Inn and Suites. It's also the same location the International Thunderbird Club uses - less of a "party" location but really nice, free cookies in the evenings and the breakfast was top notch. Closer to the fair grounds as well if memory serves me.
Now that we have kids I appreciate paying a little more to avoid any worries about them.
This year place is Country Inn and Suites by Radisson located in Carlisle. The costs is $149/night + taxes. The International Thunderbird Club has gracious allowed us to book under their reservation block. When you call tell them it is for the International Thunderbird Club. They have free breakfast and cookies each day. The hotel is away from all the crazy traffic and a nice cruise thru Carlisle and Dickinson Law School campus and for those who have been coming to Carlisle since the late 90's it is near the Super 8 hotel we got kicked out of. lol.
Also, for Saturday night dinner place this year is Black N Bleu in Mechanicsburg at 7:30-8:00pm. This place comes highly recomended. If you are coming, please let me know how many in your party, so I can give them a heads up on count.
I am working on figuring if a Saturday luncheon under the tent is something people will also want to do.
