A few things, from my phone, while I am visiting my grandmother in Virginia.

1. The Quality Inn is not clairvoyant, you must tell them that you need a room from the SnoFari room block.

2. Not only are there rooms available in our room block, MOST of the rooms are still available.

3. Booking a poolside room will not result in the pool being open later. I've asked them no less than 30 times to give me a way to keep the pool open, the answer is that we have to book the entire hotel. That will never happen, not because we don't have the number of people and sheer motivation to make it happen, but because there are people that book rooms outside of the SnoFari block before you folks have a chance to. For what it is worth, I will contact the event coordinator at the QI when I return from my vacation and find out if there are any balcony or poolside rooms that have been booked by a NON SnoFari participant and if there are none, I will let you know. If you guys want to try to book all of those rooms, I will make another case for keeping it open later. But here is the thing, many people book those rooms because they have kids and use the pool, those kids don't need to hear a bunch of retards carrying on in an echo chamber while they are trying sleep.

4. SnoFari is $55 per person, I will be shocked if this question hasn't been answered in this thread. The registration form will be posted when it it posted and not a second sooner. The registration form is the only part of SnoFari that I don't get to plan---as a grade a control freak, I want it posted just the same that you do!

First time in four years we've booked the hotel BEFORE registration... What does it take to make the number o participants go up? I know the dnr has a say but any other reason?

We are at capacity. The size of SnoFari will not be increased. Keep in mind, a run with 60 participants is 100 vehicles and 200 people in size.

I figured capacity was reached just didn't know if it had to do with trail leaders or what. I know in the past there has been a 60 rig limit and it's always been filled since we started going. I totally understand not making it any bigger I watch you run around all weekend;) you do a great job, and Sunday when we're loading the trailer and heading back to toledo we always talk about next years snofari. Can't wait to be there!

Default First Time

Hello all,

This is my first post here. Really excited when I heard about this SnoFari Run. I just purchased my first Jeep ever at the tender age of 30, have always wanted a Jeep, now I have one!

Anyways I am really pumped about joining you all in January, but I'm hesitant to book a room not knowing if I will be able to register....? Any thoughts. Seems like there are already a ton of people going. If its first come first serve, snail mail race there are no guarantees.

I am going to do everything possible to get my Reg Forms out first thing Thurs, I thought I might even Priority First Class that sucker just to make sure. If I understand correctly the form will be posted in the original post in this thread .pdf of some kind. Will will fill it out, print it out, then mail it to the appropriate person(s)? Please correct me if I am wrong.

I don't want to pull the trigger on booking a room until I know....wait I just thought of something DERP, I bet you can make cancellations up to or within 48 hours of the booking date.....muhahahahahahah!!! Funk it im booking! Cant wait!!

Edit: Is the registration $55 per person, or per vehicle. i.e. The wife, me, and our 12 yr old would be $55 or $165 all in one vehicle?

I have a couple more questions for you.

Saturday morning registration?
What time does the trail ride start?
Cb required?
$55.00 fee covers dinner?

Thanks
