I have tried multiple times to call the number Alan posted above and keep getting voice mail for someone called Bill Walsh. Is that really the number to reach Charity?
It seems like this thread might be better located under the Events section.
I got that too, Michael but left voice mail of my intentions and next time I checked my email I found I was automatically booked for those three nights on the cc I used last year. Decent automation for sure but when I checked the reservation confirmation there is a feature where I was able to modify it to include the Wednesday night also but at a much higher rate so I declined and will call and confirm next week to see if the SOC rate will indeed be applicable to Wednesday night too. I had a phone call with Walsh he was also not able to confirm a ground floor room for us.
I think we should call it Spyders Meet Speedsters this year. The wife and I are in again this year. The wife is bringing her Thing...........pauses for joke to follow this layup.
She really will be bringing her VW Thing. We will likely be there Wednesday, weather permitting.
It was good Alan. Looking forward to a repeat. Whoever made a sacrifice to the weather gods may want to repeat the ceremony.

You can try this... email
And specify Shippenburgh and her name Charity Shreffler and your golden.
This is what I did with my request for the room and bed # etc.
Got my reservation confirmation by email the next day...
Piece of Cake, eZe peeZey
I left a message for Charity today and was emailed a reservation for the same days as '19 about 20 minutes later. No call back though. I'm not mad, just informing people that I mentioned Speedster event in my message with my name and she booked me.
I hear we're going to watch Alan Merklin try to grab a greased pig Wednesday night. Then we're gonna have a square dance, called by Lane Anderson "Annoying Radio Guy". Maybe a card trick or three from Ed Ericcson. Jack and Maddie are going to do the dueling banjo routine.
Max is going to do a live reading of all three books, Cory/Jeni are going to disassemble then re-assemble their entire car. Chris is going to vape his face off. Karen will sip something good. Chuck will consume an entire bottle of whiskey and repeat himself. The Stroud's will discuss their latest touring/trailering adventures. Frazoo is going to shoot off rockets. Mossberg is gonna talk about the latest 718 Boxster automatic accessories. The Finch will share the latest on goat-raising in America. Hoss will most definitely wear his big hat.
Lenny, Ron, Michelle and Carey will hang back quietly and possibly smoke cigars.
Stan and Al will give a rousing discussion on gear and compression ratios, and their effect on significant others and relationships.
I will just "SHUT UP" LOL.
It'll be a real HOOT!
...So not to royally totally screw up the Marriott hotel head count and Thursday BBQ Buffet, PLEASE Do Not Email a Reservation Request or Call the CourtYard Marroitt 800 reservation number. DO... Call Charity Shreffler direct at the number I provided..... Thanks!
Funny Alan, last year she responded to me by email so I simply replied to her email . Can you check whenever you are talking to them if my registration is ok. Thanks .
Who's making the shirts?!

And Mr. Piperato, who also has some rather uniquely interesting (and some say downright disturbing) opinions on these subjects, will be in there as deep and yelling as loud as the rest of us! It will be an event not to be missed...
I agree with Ray- great idea Alan (and Al)

Bob, you could always take the long way back to the Great White North or stop at the Cape on the way by. We have a few nice rides here.
Al. No problem for long drives. The past few years we have headed to the Outer Banks after Carlisle, then a two day drive back home. Lots of nice country roads there and back...
