Just received my acceptance to this school Sept. 26-27. I've been wanting to get out to the Glen for a very long time.
Any one else from New England planning for this event?
How about a Caravan out the day before or back the day after?
Anyone with tires and brakes that would last four days in a row....also toying with the Genesse Valley event Sept. 28-29? Registration for that opens today!

Got more info on the school?

I'm pretty sure I'm going to sign up for the Boston chapter event. As for a caravan, I forget what my route out there is... I think the first common point we'd have would be the Thruway (they spell it wrong officially, right?) at Albany.
Last time I was there, I had a cheap room that was 45 minutes away in Horseheads(?). I think Kathleen or Rick know of a better cheap option closer to Watkins Glen.

I'll try making it out...but Yeah Check out this post (http://www.mini2.com/forum/new-york-new-england-region/142647-finger-lakes-mini-run-sunday-8-19-2007-a.html#post3068452)of Cathleen's for local lodging info....If you guys are looking to meeting other MINIs around this area you can swing by Syracuse and hang around here (let me know, Syracuse is my neck of the woods and i can show u some fun twisties)...or check out Tier MINI (www.tierMINI.com)since you'll kinda be in their 'hood'...although it may also be part of MINIs of WNY (http://www.activeboard.com/forum.spark?forumID=71633)turf...eh either way we all work together out here...it's the MINI way!

There's a lot of small motels in Watkins Glen, though I'm not sure of their prices or reputations.
Watkins Glen and Schuyler County, NY - Our people places and events (http://www.watkinsglen.com/search.cgi)
Seneca Lodge and the Glen Motor Inn are 2 of the biggest, and right in town. Geneva is 45 minutes away, but on the way from the Thruway.

After seeing the NASCAR race at the Glen last weekend, there is no doubt in my mind - I'll be there!
Caravan from NH at the very least :D
