Hello Blogger Buddies!
It is time to make some decisions for Sonoma...June is rapidly approaching!
***WHO IS COMING??***
Please let us know even if you are a maybe...obviously Melissa and I will be there. I believe Jon is planning to trek up and Tez has his flights booked! Who else!?
***DO YOU WANT TO BUY SEATS TOGETHER??***
I will likely be in the garages again so won't have tickets - but I assume everyone wants to sit together?? I believe last time there was interest in sitting in Turn 7 -- which is right in front of the "bottleneck" where the drivers often (well Junior anyway) go flying off track before the esses...Other most popular place to sit is the main grandstands where you can see the pits. Here is a link to a seating map at Sonoma: http://www.infineonraceway.com/fanguide/maps/
We will need to someone to spearhead buying the tickets.
***DO YOU WANT TO STAY IN THE SAME HOTEL??***
The main problem we have with lodging is that if YeeMum joins us she would like a smoking room and very few hotels offer smoking rooms anymore. The following are the "best" options in the area as far as price, location and safety goes. Please let me know which one you prefer and if you want to try to share rooms. Melissa and I are likely to bunk together again.
GAIA -- This is where Melissa, myself and IowaGirl stayed last time. Best rate $109 per night.
Ramada -- This is where I believe Jon stayed last time. Best rate $95 per night
http://www.ramada.com/ Search for Vallejo hotel.
Best Western Inn - This is the only other hotel with openings that isn't more than $200 a room. Best rate $112 per night.
http://book.bestwestern.com/ Again search for Vallejo hotel.
***DO YOU WANT TO DO ANOTHER DINNER ON SAT PM??***
If so, any requests? I will say the place we ate at last time was excellent Italian and reasonably priced. We can also "splurge" & have a lovely Napa Valley experience or not dine together at all.
Here is where we ate last time: http://www.lastradasanpablo.com/napa.html
I think that is it for now...would love to make reservations and order tickets by mid-April to have the best options for lodging and seats. Everyone is welcome!! Please join us!!
RIP, NASCAR, Part 3
