OK, let's see who's registered for (or interested in) attending O'Fest in Greensboro, NC next month. Remember that all the driving events are being held at VIR. Details can be found on the NCC home page, the Tarheel home page or BMW CCA's home page.

Please respond to the Poll.

Depending if I have commitments at college or a job there, I am planning to attend O'fest for at least one day. I would love to make it down to VIR again, but I may be just a spectator/mingler.

Same here. I asked for Mon-Tue DE so I can leave my stuff at the track Monday night.

Biggins,
As they say "come on down". O'Fest is just as much a social event as a driving event.

Gary,

I want to see you go through the Gymkhana. It sounds like it will be similar to the one with X5s in Greenville where you did so well.

Wish I could, but between time away from work and cost, it's just not feasible.

Not going. I have to work to get money to pay the bank so they don't take my BMWs away.

Thanks, hope so too. I'll squeeze over there during a free break from the school. :biggrin:

Can someone recommend a "nicer" place to stay that may accept "pets"??? Not sure if I am going to bring my pets at this point ...

I would prefer something quieter ... last place we stayed at, there were people partying and yelling until 3:00 a.m. in the morning. I don't mind paying more for a nicer place.

TIA

There is a pet friendly motel in Danville. I can find the name if you are interested. Don't know about Greensboro.

Isn't greensboro like 1.5 hours from VIR? That's too far ... not sure what the club racing schedule is ... but, closer is better for me ... I'd like something relatively close to VIR -- say 20-30 minutes at max.

If you want an in-between location, Durham's about an hour from Alton and 45 mins from Greensboro.

Just get a hotel on the west side -- relatively close to US 15-501 -- that way you can easily run up to I-85 to get to G'Boro or head North on U.S. 501 to Roxboro and NC 57 to get to VIR.

Looking to hitchhike a ride Monday night from the track back to Greensboro and back to the track again on Tuesday morning.

For future reference, the Hampton Inn in Danville is pet friendly. And too late, but the Residence Inn in Greensboro is listed as pet friendly.
