My wife and I are planning a trip to FL in our old RV. She agreed to let me attend the contest. I am not much of pilot but have fun flying and meeting other fliers. I only be flying electric. I have a couple of second hand gliders with me. My ALES gliders will be one full house and one RES.

Great! You might be able to hook up and camp at Kennyworld, but that's really up to Kenny. Check with Raed about that.

Where are you from?

We would be glad to have you, kenny World is a great flying/camping site, Kenny has two rv sites, which would probably fill up fast, you can also get water and electric off his barn.
You can fly your electrics in all events.

It is first come first serve, no reservations. Bring a generator if you have one, just in case. I am sure you can run an extension cord from the barn to power up basic things.
I know of several campgrounds in the Crystal River area, about 30-40 minutes southwest of the field.

For some reason the hotel rates for November 16 - 19 are unusually high at the Super 8 and RedRoof Inn at Exit 352. The Super 8 is $129 per night for Friday and Saturday nights! The Red Roof Inn is cheaper, but still over $100 per night.

Fortunately, the rates at Exit 354 are much lower. I booked a room at the Motel 6 at $40 for Thursday and $55 per night for Friday and Saturday.

I think you're right. There's a game against University of Alabama on Saturday, November 18, at the stadium in Gainesville. The stadium is 36.6 miles from the Super 8, which is charging over $100 per night, but only 35.3 miles from the Motel 6, which is charging $55 per night. That could mean that Super 8 is currently aware of the game but Motel 6 is not. Also, the prices near Gainesville are between $150 and $200 per night.

So heads up if you plan to stay at a motel for the Tangerine. Double-check my findings and consider booking early.
