Did we define a location that "most" of the LAB group would be staying at (for those taking the hotel route)?

Somewhere between the track and downtown would probably be my desire.
Like five people voted and there was no consensus.
Tinhead's recommended hotel became the default suggestion.
I think it's somewhere between the hotel and downtown. He posted the location earlier in the thread.

Yeah that's why the hotel-poll thread was done a few months ago.
It went nowhere fast.

Starting now, I'm going to mass-email everyone listed as going/probably/maybe in this thread.
Wake those fuckers up if they're not currently lurking.
Mass email to specific users is not easy.
It requires creating a fucking user-group and lots of searching, copy/paste.
ugh.

Probably won't bother with getting event tickets, but coming to Austin is looking pretty likely.
I'll probably avoid pre-buying COTA tickets (likely too late anyway) and just get scalped on whatever day I go.

I have a couple non-LAB buddies to visit in the area and I want to hit the Rock and Roll Car museum, but wide open plans otherwise.

Put in for the time off today. Is an actual coherent get-together decided yet?

.
Here's a copy/paste of what I texted @LURCH earlier this evening.

The board pretty much settled on Saturday afternoon/evening for "the reunion party". So Friday is wide open. Schwantz' party will be suggested along with the party that Tinhead & I go to on Fridays. They serve free liquor and have hundreds of bikes & cool shop equipment to check out.
I'm waiting to hear back on resources regarding the preferred Saturday option.

Can't remember the name of tinhead tinhead favorite Friday party.
He'll pipe in and tell ya'll about it shortly, I'm sure.

Not enough people are arriving early enough Friday to make that the Reunion day, I guess.

AF1 open house has been on Fridays.

It's a time! Drinks, food, all kinds of stuff to see. The Aprilia MotoGP team usually shows up. I just missed getting a pic of Max Biaggi and me last year, got one of wifey and Aleix Espargaro.

Edited to correct day of the week.

Okay, TY. Working plan is to cross paths with Buellbomb in Mobile late-day Thursday then west to Lurch's Friday AM; around ten hours for that leg, so a late-afternoonish ETA on Friday seems reasonable. Don't know what his other plans are but I'll head eastward on Sunday AM.

Lurch has a nice place and well behaved dogs.

I've got a DIY dump, a cool roomate, and crazy dogs.
I'll message my phone # to all confirmed party-goers the week before the races/party.

If anyone wants a bad-ass tattoo when you get here, let me know.
My roomie is one of the best tattoo artists in Texas.
I say that with certainty, not friendship.

I booked a place about 2 miles from there. 7 miles from COTA.
Canceled that reservation (local Austinite told me it was in a shithole part of town) and I got a room at the Drury by campus. Closer to the Tesla charger and has lot's of free shit... WiFi, breakfast, snacks, drinks, Jacuzzi... crazy.

Hey TB.. I have been watching the thread and trying to figure out a way to make attending doable.. but it isn't looking likely.. new house, new job with different travel responsibilities and ridiculous schedule that while I hope doesn't stay at this pace, looks like it might for a while, are crushing my optimism!
