I still think we should finish on Saturday. When we do our beach run every May we stay at the Tides Motel a block off the beach in Ocean City. I will call them and see if we can block off rooms; if so it should be around $90 or so per room. We should still have the official finish at Vespa Rehoboth. Ocean City is about 30 miles south.


So, what you meant to say was..."Chris, you were right, I shouldn't have doubted you." :D

Yes, you were absolutely right, Chris! But with so many motel rooms up and down the shore, it's just hard to believe that the NASCAR in Dover would affect the supply that much.

Hey Bobo. I guess Wwhen they say NASCAR is the biggest spectator sport in the US they mean it.

So what do think of just moving the finish to Ocean City? That way canhang out in one place as all the rider come in for the day.

I was at the finish line for both the 04 and 06 Cannonballs (04 as a greeter and 06 as a rider) and people are SO tired. I think in reality there is a lot less celebrating and more slinking off to sleep than we plan in advance. So it definitely does not make sense to try to have a party at Vespa Rehoboth and then stay 30 miles down the road at Ocean City. If we finish at Ocean City we won't be ending at a scooter shop though. Let me ask Larry at Vespa Rehoboth for ideas. I figure we need about 25 rooms; maybe he knows where we can find them.

Vespa Rehoboth isn't very much of a shop though and really no place to hang out at the finish.

That's why I liked the idea of the Crosswinds Hotel just up the street in Rehoboth. It has a big parking lot right there on Rehoboth Ave. Obviously, there are no shortages of Hotels that fit that desciption in OC.

If we need the shop to aid in shipping we could head up to Rehoboth the next day.

Just throwing thoughts out there.

Crosswinds is fine if we can get the rooms. Vespa Rehoboth could still sponsor us. There is not much room in front of Vespa Rehoboth. We would have to gather at the circle at the end of the road anyway.
