The first real 2005 Rally thread!
I did some preliminary scouting around for lodging for the 2005 Rally.
I was able to book a room at the Motel 6 close to the fairgrounds, but was also advised by the reservations rep that the Rally might be considered a "special event", where the per-night rate would be doubled.
Perhaps I'm being naive, but I thought that the Rally Committee's advance negotiations w/ the local tourism board would preclude this sort of thing ... i.e., gouging. Then again, maybe the rep wasn't familiar w/ what had been already established.
