Bob,  count me in for at least 1 car. I have already logged my vacation for the Wednesday before thru the Tuesday after your event.
 Also should have Bradley Everhart and his  199.6mph V Twin bike riding with me.

I will be watching for pre registration to open.

I just made reservations at the little place I stayed at last year, Riverside Motor Court.  They are under new ownership and remodeled all of the rooms: however, the rates have went up .. single rooms are $51 (total cost including taxes).  Didn't ask how many rooms they had left.

We made a deal with the Hampton Inn in Presque Isle ,http://www.hampton-inn-presque-isle.com/ for $99 a rm, two Queens , and a hot breakfast in hotel inclusive.
The place is new , has a indoor pool . It does not have a Restaurant, although Presque Isle has many nearby, and plenty more are available in Caribou on the way to Loring.
There is a wedding on our weekend, has 40 rms taken, we get 20 rms for the discount, must be reserved by June 30th. After that, the rms are $107 w/ AARP or AAA discount.
Get busy !

Considering it's a Hampton Inn, that's a deal!

Just spoke with Hampton Inn rep, this "block of 20" deal is not final until Monday next.
Hold off on reservation requests until then. Our previous experiences were with a local group of lodgings that weren't beholding to national chain management that has to have all arrangements run through them for approval. When it is final, I will post the Approval "code" to use for your reservations..... Whew...
So currently, we still have the same deal at the Caribou Inn, $88  and Presque Isle Inn, $80, as last year, and we shortly will have the Hampton Inn, $99 , breakfast Included.   When you do call the Hampton Inn..Monday

I seem to be scroon up on a daily basis here. That map I just sent is incorrect, gives directions to the "center of Limestone", as opposed to getting near enough to the track to  comfortably follow our signs ( before some Subaru steals them).  Zoom in on that map, you'll see the correct way is to take Rt 89 aka Access rd, to East gate rd, north to Carolina,west to New Mexico, North to "T", east to the entrance. So add maybe a mile to the previous estimate  for a total of 21ish ?
I promise to edit myself better.
I spoke with Maine Man Mark yesterday, he said it's been positively springlike up there, most snow melted. But bad news for the sno mo industry.

Hey Rick!
89 is a real two lane wide rd, main drag between  Caribou and Limestone. If you  check that mapquest  link, zoom down and get the aerial view, navigate via my directions,takes you right to the runway. The start line is 20ft north of the south end of that big patch of concrete. If I lived up there I'd probably be on it today, it is currently snowless.

   Today was a fantastic day in Maine. Temp was 43 F, I had my garage doors open while working on my car. Tomorrow the Winter starts again.

Ayup.  It needs to freeze-up again for awhile.  Still have lots of firewood to get out.

Hey Bob,
When is registration for the race going to happen. I am going to make it to this years race unless something crazy happens, I don't want to miss the sign up date. I was really bummed that I missed the 1st race.

Give us a little more time, we want to have everything set up,  so we may respond to each mailing rapidly,as opposed to last year. Also, Rulebooks go out in a lot of those reg packs, and it'll be awhile until they are ready. We will again, thanks to  the ECTA, share their rulebook, exact same rules, only diff our records and address.
