America's Best Value Inn is on 290 in Manor. The location is good, but RMR24 and I didn't have a very good experience. On the other hand its a place to sleep and shower with lizards. This is the hotel the club worked out a group rate with. The current rate is $79.99.

I stayed at the Super8 at 5606 East 51st Street for the Oct '11 Oktoberfest and the rate was $62 a night. Its now $316 per night. While its a much nicer hotel than most, its certainly not worth that kind of money. I sent them an email asking why the rates are so high. Just for the fun of it I changed dates to see if the activity at the new race track was the issue, it didn't appear to be. The rates dropped into the $200 range.

The above two in my opinion are the best as far as location is concerned. Getting to the field is easy from both.

I'll do some more hotel research and see what I can come up with.

Hey Hey


Ah ha this is where yall are hanging out I found you! Joe Doran , Eddie Acoba, and myself (KC Carlton) are working through the details and would love suggestions. I saw steaks mention. What about Event shirts? I did the design for the last 2 years at Oktoberfest. Would love to start a theme for TEXAS FLI. We have lots of great things planned and April will be here before you know it!

Just to let everyone know that I am now the new President of Austin Radio Control Association. I am going to work closely with the even coordinator to make sure the event runs smooth, and that we can all have a blast at the event. We can not wait to host this event.

we will have the usual suspects for this event light towers Friday and Saturday night Friday night Hawaiian barbeque. as far as Saturday nights dinner we are still trying to put that deal together. during October fest we did the 1 trick event the event ran smoothly and it's highly possible we'll do it again.

hopefully Hawaiian barbeque will be enough for you to make the drive

America's Best Value Inn has a 20% discount for booking 14 days in advance bringing the rate to $63.99. They might do better if you bring your own lizard.
