You ready for a road trip...Hershey!!

Alright guys, mark your calenders and start saving your pennies. The Hershey Porsche Swap Meet is just around the corner. April 20th this year, the location, Chocolate town USA, (Hershey, PA for those who don't know the history). Well, I live about 30-45 minutes away and I am getting reservations for a hotel for those of you that wish to drive here for the weekend and check out the biggest all Porsche meet on the Right Coast. Perhaps, the biggest anywhere. Well, the hotel I am going to get you guys has group rates for at least 8 people. They have a total of 23 rooms, plus 3 suites. I forget the actual group rates because the young ladie that was working at the counter had me distracted. I will find that out tomorrow. I need to know how many of you people are interested in taking a weekend trip. I will make the reservations for the 19th thru the 21st. This is a big Porsche event, you don't want to miss this. So, if you can make it, please let me know on here or through email, swtncdly@aol.com and I will get all the details about the hotel and stuff like that. Another thing, the hotel also has a 48 hour cancellation policy.
I will be posting this on multiple boards.




Porsche, through and through

I believe some of the vendors take credit cards...last year they had a Mobil bank which you could get money and stuff like that.

Alright, I got the rates, the group rates are $77 plus tax for 2 adults, and for each additional person it will be 10 dollars more, up to four people. That I believe is for a night, kinda pricy. Their are plenty of motels around here as well that I am sure are much cheaper. I will check that out if you guys want something cheaper.

So everyone that is interested in a place to stay, let me know if those prices are alright for you or if you want me to find something cheaper.

Also, this year, for the first time they are having an autoX the sunday after the swap for PCA members only, I will probably go and check that out and maybe participate if I decide to actually join the PCA before then. Here is a website with all the latest info: http://www.centralpaporsche.org/Swap2002/swap_header.htm

Here's a link to the Best Western of Hershey. They have the lowest ($59.95 a night) rates I could find.

Thumbs up

we will be there 100%

let's do the same thing we did 2 years ago... if eveyone can decide on a hotel/motel/whatever... we can all hang out before the event. this was a lot of fun and it was cool to run into some people we've only met online.

$60 a night is good . experience tells us to go cheap and then spend a ton at the swap
