Run Info and Area Attractions

Finger Lakes Run

It's a called a RUN because that is what we will do, through some
of the pretty countryside of the NY Finger Lakes area.
The run will cover about 95 miles not including the track.

The main event is three laps at Watkins Glen International race track. This is scheduled for NOON.

**We will need to sign a release form and pay at the track.
The cost is $20.00 cash per SSR. By paying cash we get a discount.
This will also speed up the registration process
**

We will make two stops on the way to WGI...Harris Hill & CMOG.
We get to WGI prior to Noon to register and get staged.
After the Laps we head to the Windmill for a light lunch and a bit of exploring.
Then as we head back to the Hotel, we will check out Glenora and She-Qua-ga Falls.:wink2:
Although we can't spend a lot of time at any location, it gives you a taste
of what this area has to offer. If you plan to extend your stay, you can explore in greater detail.

Hotel Update

At the Marriott, rooms for Friday to Monday for the SSR RUN are open.
The block for Thursday night is full as a group of over 500 Travel writers and bloggers will be in the area starting on Sunday thru Thursday. :surprise:
If you want to come on Thursday you can book at the CandleWood Suites for Thursday and move to the Marriott on Friday.
If you do book the CandleWood for Thursday check in with the Marriott starting in mid August as the other group block will clear and the Marriott may open up.
If you choose to stay at the CandleWood the rate is to be $109. If they say something else tell them that this is the rate Tiffany B. has quoted.
Any problems with that get in touch with me.

I would suggest that if you are planning on coming, book soon to get a room on hold...you can always cancel.
If you book, let me know so that I can make room adjustments if necessary.

A Fanatics Dream

This You Tube video was created by Midnightrider after the 2007 Finger Lakes Run.
This should give you an idea of what you will be doing on the track.
Before you start watching, get some towels to catch the drool.

Hotel Update

We did a trial run of the "Finger Lakes Run" on Saturday to make sure that there were no problems
like construction or road closures and to check times. Good news...ready to go :smile2::smile2:

** Checked at the Marriott on rooms. Good News.
Anybody planning to stay on Thursday night (9/13) but could not book at the Marriott we have news.
The General Manager ( Heather H.)said that she would honor the SSR rate of $129.00 for Thursday
even though we are above our Group limit. :smile2::grin2:
If you have booked at the CandleWood or other hotel and want to change to the Marriot call the hotel
@ 607.795.5900 to book....ask for the "SSR Fanatics" rate. ( tell them Heather said it was OK)
You will then need to cancel the other booking if you have one.

More info to come as soon as the picture problem is fixed.
