I think I will likely use the Princess Bayshore hotel at 48th Street.
http://www.princessbayside.com/index.php
It is a 1 block walk to the beach. Hotel has WIFI in every room and has two pools.

I can get Thursday/Sunday rooms ranging from $69 to $99 and Friday/Saturday rooms ranging from $99 to $129

There are three levels of rooms. Regular, Efficiency w/kitchenette and Efficiency w/kitchenette and bayview. I believe the Efficiency is $20 above base and the Bayview adds $10 more. Most of the rooms are two queen beds. It is a 100% smoke free hotel.

Ocean City is 153 blocks (9.1 miles) from Inlet to Delaware Line
Roughly 16 blocks is a mile, 8 is a half etc.
Just for reference this is

48 blocks North of the Rt 50 (Southern) Bridge
14 blocks South of the Rt 90 (Northern) Bridge
96 blocks South of the Delaware Line.
57 blocks North of the Inlet entrance
7 blocks North of the Convention Center

1 block South of Seacrets. Simply the BEST niteclub in ANY beach town ANYWHERE. Crawl home available.

20 blocks North of the Salty Dog

8 blocks South of Macky's

12 blocks South of Fager's Island

17 blocks North of the Jolly Roger

5 miles to Hooper's Crab House

5 miles to Baja Go Karting

Folks,

This can be an incredibly fun meet but it CAN be expensive.

Budget information. Every piece of this is optional of course but if you chose to do everything here are some rough ideas.

Hotel for 2 nights = $240
Friday Dinner @ Hoopers = $40 (per person)
Registration for the Inlet car show & parade = $50
Go Kart Racing (2 hours) = $36 or $7 per ride
Mini Golf $5 per round
Saturday Dinner TBA = $35-$45

Sitting in a lawn chair with a cooler watching hundreds of Hot Rods cruise up and down the strip Friday and Saturday nights? FREE!!!!

ALL of this is optional and getting a standard room and splitting cost can bring this cost down, but I wanted everyone to get a handle on the cost factors. I do not plan to register my car in the show itself. The only real benefits are that you get to park in the Inlet parking lot AND you get to drive down the boardwalk in the parade.

That Silver 300M Special in the picture with Trevor's M was mine. I still talk to Trevor quite a bit. He sold the M and has a pretty crazy Accord show car right now.

I have been waiting for years for this meet to come back. I no longer own the M but would still like to come down and catch up with everyone. I will check back for final details.

Sorry guys, I no longer have a fridge in my trunk to keep the beer cold.

Keith

Let me know when you are heading down Hank and maybe we can caravan there.

No room for the fridge with all the speakers in the trunk of the Lincoln. Sold the LS too.

Driving a Mercedes now. No more show cars for me at the moment but it would be awesome to catch up with everyone.

I will send you my number Hank. It changed last year.

When do you think you will be heading down.

Is the hotel reserved for us yet or do I need to wait some more before I call?

Thanks
