SOS 2020

Post by Kaiser Bill » Sat Aug 10, 2019 10:00 am

It has been way too long since I posted to this forum. Looking forward to returning to the hobby now that the dust is settling from the move. Any information on the SOS in 2020. Where do most people stay? Thanks in advance. Bill

Bill good to hear from you, a bunch of us are stating at the Home 2 suites which is right by an entrance to the fairgrounds. Many also stay at the Hilton Garden INN.

Hope to see you there

Look on Hotels.com for room rates, but look SOON. There is the gun show, flea market and I believe other events going on as usual so rooms fill up fast and can get very expensive.

And while SOS will likely go on as usual after last year's issues I've started to book refundable rooms for all the shows I do now. We never know when unfortunately the other shoe will drop.

There are a number of new hotels in the area as well, a "Tru" (Hilton property) popped up next to the Hampton Inn / Springhill Suites, and there is a new Holiday Inn property in the neighborhood, or so I am told. Many choices, but as Peter said - book now. I see that the OVMS website SOS hotel data is out of date.. will bring that to Mr. Combs' attention. They negotiated some group blocks at a few of the Phillips Lane and Crittenden Drive hotels last year; the hotels tried to help as best they could, but with all that is going on there, they just did not have much incentive to make special deals - the weekend is a guaranteed sellout.

Well, it looks like SOS will be canceled for me this year, Jeff has posted his latest catalogue and by 3:05 Central time I should be bankrupt.

Due to slow interweb service, it looks like I can still afford to drive to Kentucky.

Glad to hear you'll be able to make it to SOS. I was going to suggest you come anyway to pick your items from Jeff!

Looking forward to seeing all you guys in just two weeks!

Not rich, but not as poor as I wished to be.
