I have a rate that has been offered for the Econo-Lodge in Carthage, MO for the event.

The manager has offered a rate of $58.49 for rooms. I have just talked to Econo-Lodge and they have in excess of 10 rooms available. I have reserved 4 rooms for the 3rd, and 4 rooms for the 4th. Please PM me if you are interested in these rooms. If I need to reserve more rooms, that is not a problem. I will be calling again in the morning to verify prices for singles and for the double queens.

These are decent rooms with a microwave and refrigerator in each room.

Thanks,

DW

I have not been able to get in contact with the General Manager, but the rates that she quoted me are as follows:

$58.49 for a single room
$64.99 for double Queen room

I will try to catch her again tomorrow and will update thread as necessary.

Lol. It is actually a pretty decent motel, to me anyway. Fridges and microwaves in each room, and they are clean. It is where I always stay. :)

Blaze and I were there the last time we came up. It's spartan accommodations, but as DW said, it's clean and it's got a fridge to keep the Monster 4 pack cold.

The shower heads could use some work, though.

THAT would explain why he ripped a hole in the foot of his dry suit... he was running some cave line from his cath to the flag!

Hey DW, just a quick question about the hotel. When we get there, do we give your name or our name for the reservation? less than 2 weeks and I am readt to be there!!!!!

LaCroix42
06-25-2009, 23:52
I was told we need to give the name "Rick James" in order to get the correct room. Except for Kenny, he has to give the name "Carradine" ;)

Dark Wolf

Ok, just off the phone with Donna Miller, General Manager of EL. The rooms are locked in, and she is getting us a discounted rate. All double bed rooms with microwave and fridge. Price quoted was $58.99, but she says that she can get us a better rate. When you check in just tell her you are with the group of divers and give her my name, and she will take care of the rest.

So far, I have rooms for navy, plot, myself, Woodchuck, and LC. And yes LC, you are covered for the 2nd through the 5th. :)

Well, she does live in Michigan. So, when does the brain start to thaw...around August, just in time to freeze and vapor lock again? :smilie39:

hahahaha - I will not be diving this weekend. I, instead, will be the official buddy checker at the water's edge.

My job, and one I shall take seriously, with the highest degree of importance, will be to check that each and every one of your tanks are fully turned on, before you enter the water.

Who's gonna go first?

No can do Ghost Rider.

CRNA has edumicated me on the power Sonic breakfast (#12) and Coke before diving. He says it brings him good luck. Personally, it gives me indigestion.

I ain't messing with his Mojo. Sooner or later this weekend, he will be my dive partner.

Watch the griping LaCroix. Um, Plot seems to think it is HIS DUTY to bonk people on the noggin with a frozen dry glove when they gripe as they get into the water.

Keep a wary eye out for him. He is sneaky about it too.
