Looking into hotel room prices and they are quite high right now, I assume for Sturgis (?) gotta start saving for next summer.. would love to make it more than a weekend, but I would hate to double up on seeing the sights ourselves vs with the group. Going to take some planning.

It is Sturgis time. I was told that in Custer if a hotel has a vacancy it is going to cost 600 a night if there was no previous reservation for a room that probably wouldn't cost more then 120. Gas has also gone up 30 cents a gallon in the last few weeks. I believe that the plan is to have it run three or four days before the weekend and tie it into some free events on the weekend. Because this is tourist time even after Sturgis, we need to wait until the end of August to tie down the dates, hotels etc. The week of June 20th was just tentative.

I hear ya, I figured it was about that time and probably was not the time to be checking room rates. I understand about the planning aspect and been there myself a few times.

I have a meeting set up with Deadwoods event coordinator in two weeks once the rally is over, she's going to give me a call. Stay tuned!

2000 miles from FL... possible... 6 days just for the trip to and from. Wife would have to fly in... no way she's going to be able to get that time off. Where's the closes regional airport.

I wanted to let everyone know that we have not forgotten about the Rally in Deadwood next year. Summer is a busy time for all of the black hills. Tom said to let everyone know that Sara the girl that sets up the events just took a two week vacation. Dawn (his contact with the chamber) will give me a call when they want to meet.

Hopefully this will happen in September and we can get the ball rolling.

Thanks again to both of you for taking this on - it's no small job. Looking forward to more details as they are available.

here is a page from the travel channel that has several videos of places in the black hills all of which you will have access to during the rally. Being from Custer I am partial to the state park video, but the entire are is beautiful. Just a tease of things to come.
