Shirt Info!

Looks like I can't edit my first post anymore, so I'll add this shirt info down here:

Tardis will be making shirts for the Mystery Run again this year! The colour of the shirt will remain a mystery, but the design will be basically the same as it was in 2012. The price for each shirt will be going up to $17 a piece, as we will be getting better quality shirts than last time. Shirts must be ordered in advance, with a cut-off date of July 20th, 2014 (So that there is time to embroider them!). Please send a message to Tardis or me if you would like to get a shirt!There's a picture below of what the 2012 shirt looked like.

In addition, I got a Square Credit Card reader, so I should be able to accept payment by credit card as well, adding on a 2.75% fee.

Pretty impressive prize considering the price of those bikes. Kudos to smart Canada - maybe smart USA will take notice.

In other news, I've now made an inital route for Saturday and Sunday. Both routes still need to be test run, as I think I might be using some gravel roads at the moment. It's currently looking like a 10 AM departure on Saturday, and 9 AM on Sunday (Need to see if I can optimize this so we can start a little bit later), possibly with no entrance fee.

Hotel Info (All prices are in CAD):
------------------------------------------------------

Looks like the Ramada price per night has gone up to $102.85 a night if you pay in advance or $121 a night if you just reserve.

Comfort Inn has rooms ranging from $89 a night (Smoking room or handicap accessible), $98 a night (2 doubles, or queen, drive-up rooms) if you pay in advance - just making a reservation adds about $16 a night

I think Turbomar mentioned that he's stayed at the Trenton Travelodge and it wasn't too bad. It looks like you can get rooms from between $100 and $110 paying in advance, or $118 to $128 reserving.

An interesting one, is the Canadas Best Value Inn Trenton (I didn't realize there was a Canadian version of that chain as well), which seems to have a smart in it's picture! It has a king bed room from $84 a night, or a two queen bed room for $95.95 a night, and those don't even seem to be pay in advance rates!

There are some other hotels too without online booking, but TripAdvisor.ca seems to indicate the following possible prices:
-Trenton Park Motel - $88 a night
-Bayside Motel - $85 a night
-Guest Inn - $80 a night

Jwight also mentioned that it might be possible for members/former members of the forces to stay at CFB Trenton somehow. I'm not really sure of the details, but if that is in any way applicable to someone, he seemed to have some info.

I've personally looked in the Ramada and Comfort Inn rooms and they seemed good. The other hotels could be good, could be bad. When I do my test run in a week or two, I may poke my head into the Travelodge and the Best Value Inn.

I've had a few people ask me about starting locations now. I need to make sure they will actually work, but here's my tentative starting locations and times:

Saturday:
Tim Hortons at 11 Monogram Place, Trenton. We will be trying to get on the road by 10, so please arrive a little before that.

Sunday:
Walmart Parking Lot at 471 2nd Dughill Road, Trenton. We'll try to be on the road by 9 on Sunday, so again, arrive before that.


I'll be seeing if there's a way I can get the Sunday start time to push out a bit, but I think that might be the only working start time if I've got us doing the stuff I have planned. The Saturday start location is pretty firm. I need to go for a bit of a drive around that Walmart area though - there might be a better spot to start.
