Do we have to call?  The online system is telling me they are full?

 

NVM put in the rate code and they have rooms.

 

We are booked 22nd to the 26th.  See you all there.

Hotel reservations clerk showed no availability of queen bed rooms for all 4 nights but did have a double.

 

Thanks for your work on this David.

I just got off the phone with the hotel and there are no more 2 Queen Bed rooms. 

 

Currently the following types of rooms are available:

8 x 2 double beds

7 x single queen

2 x single king

 

In Maggie Valley, we had an increase in riders not doubling up in rooms, and we appear to be experiencing that in Sparta as well. We would like to encourage those of you who are vaccinated to consider sharing with others who are vaccinated as your comfort level allows.

 

Thanks!

Wife and I are both vaccinated, not sure she would be into sharing our room though, :18:

I am out for now

i was hit by a car

i am fine it was 15mph low speed accident 

but bike might be totaled and if not Woolys is about 8-9 weeks out for a major insurance repair

so it seems the bike will be ready in time but I will  not know for sure

 

 until I know more which will probably be late next week I will be on hold

Wow, even 15 mph can do serious damage.  I am glad you are OK.

I'm with Mr. Shields on this - getting hit at ANY speed is a dangerous proposition - and by a car no less! Glad you're OK Randy, and hope you're not too sore now after the fact. We all hope to see you this Fall. Be well!

Sorry to hear that @randy..Glad you are okay.   Have faith, the bike will be ready in time.

 

I just hope there is no trifecta in play for the group.   

 

Time to keep riding like someone is trying to kill us.  Yeah, they are always trying to kill us.  :bike:

I just changed my 2 queen bed reservation to a room with 1 queen bed, so that should free up another room for folks who want to room together.

So sorry to hear about the accident ... It's good that you are OK but any action with a car is No Bueno! Were hoping maybe things will be more in line by sept!

 Randy - I'd just point out that @twistyguy has signed up and he also has no bike :4331:. So he's the Official 24 Hour Bell Hop and Caddy for anything anyone needs in Sparta. I'm sure he will be happy to split duties with you if you go ahead and sign up. :4296:
