Phil, the Casino is offering a deal on rooms. See KCMongo’s link to the show flyer posted above. Plenty of room for a trailer. Suggestion, book early. There is also a Super 8 right across the street with ample parking. Y’all have fun.

Thanks Martin. Looked right over that area of the flyer that showed room rates.

There should be an area to park trailers. I should have a truck on one, so will also need to drop it somewhere.
And they will have 24 hour security patrolling all weekend.
If it is a camper, Mongo will have to answer that question.

I'll start another thread about lodging soon, have to do a little research first.
But I do like the idea of staying real close.

The advantage I see of staying at the Casino Hotel is no gas to burn running back and forth. You’re close to your stuff and can find a spot after hours to set up lawn chairs and visit. Restaurant on the premises and an abundance of cold beverages if that’s your thing without worrying about a DUI. Entertainment for Ron close at hand.

I like your thinking Martin.
Super 8 hotel is right there also.
A lot cheaper and has some kind of free breakfast.
All Vicki and I need is a place to get a shower and bed down for the night.
Red-X is also close for supplies needed during the event.

More lodging research coming later.

I did some research yesterday and the prices are from $58.00 up to $400.00. The nice thing is they list the drive distance to Argosy and most that I looked at was 4.8 to 6.5 miles from Argosy. I thought Argosy was in the $300.00 range way out of my budget or at least what I am willing to spend.Here is a listing. I don't need to be entertained Martin. a good book, a TV and place to clean up and I am all set. I am a stick in the mud boring person.

Ron the Casino is $139+tax. That’s not much more than we paid at the Drug Hotel we used to stay at. BTW you’re far from a stick in the mud.

Another quality post.
