Does anyone have a suggestion for a nice place to stay in Charlotte the night of the 22nd?


In a hotel? Unless camping out is your thing. *okay, couldn't resist at 4 AM.

I only know where not to stay - from personal experience - although it has been a while. It is off of I-85 near the airport - maybe a Motel 6, but it could have changed alot since 10 years ago when we stayed.

I'm sending you an e-mail on this. I think this one is a bit harder since you are only coming through the North side of Charlotte-- I know the southside (and places to stay away from on the northside). Maybe the Huntersville folks have some input here: 4 Auburn Fans, Smiley 5, 3 Sunshine-- are you reading this?

There is a hotel right on exit 25, but i've never stayed there. It's a Courtyard Marriott, which I've always had good experience with in general.


I-77 at Exit 25, Sam Furr Rd.

I've not stayed there but Sam Furr Rd in Huntersville is generally a good area. You will also be strategically located at an unbelieveable amount of drivebys! You may need to pack a flashlight and hit a bunch of them since I recall a lot of them being in unfenced areas-- parking lots and such.

hey,

A big thanks to all the bowers in Charlotte. You guys have given us so such good information and ideas if it wasn't for the conference we would just stay in NC!

We are trying to arrange it so we can come in on the 22nd around dinner time to provide some exchanges and night boxing. We will be in Charlotte all day and night on the 23rd just to box and meet all you great people willing to come out on Easter. Sorry. The timing isn't great, we know.

We will add a detailed post of our plans later this week. A special THANKS goes out to the Wolf Family. You are amazing!

OK,

We have some clearer plans:

We will come into Cornelius, NC on the evening of March 22nd. We are trying to arrange to get there by dinner.

If we can arrange to get there early enough, we would like to meet people (at the suggestion of the Wolf Family) at the USNWC for dinner. Followed by some night boxing and a search for Three Secrets.

We will be staying at the Econo Lodge Lake Norman. (a bit of drive we know).

March 23rd we will be in the Charlotte area (guides anyone?) and will be searching for boxes, meeting great folks, and........suggestions?

We will head out the evening of the 23rd and head towards Greenville, SC. (lodging to be determined).

March 24th we will have a mini-gather and breakfast with all who come: see event, http://www.atlasquest.com/events/event.html?gEventId=668
and then head to Stone Mountain GA for some additional boxing....suggestions?

We will stop for the night hopefully in Mobile, AL.

Next stop, New Orleans. Anyone have box suggestions along the way?

We will be in New Orleans until the 30th and then we are racing home. Our first stop will be (hopefully) in the Knoxville, TN area. We are up for a meet for breakfast for those in that area. Next stop will be Red Hook, NY (home)

Hey - we are on spring break that week - we might just be able to make it to this one!!! Any idea of a time frame? It's a 1.5 hour (or so) drive for us, but we could do some boxing after, and maybe go to the zoo if the weather is nice!!!

The Mini-event is scheduled for 8am to 9am. Just a breakfast and exchange with a few LTCs being passed under the table.

We can probably do that!! I'll have to mapquest it, and maybe have the Fox Kits sleep in the car. They just do NOT move fast in the mornings :-))
