**IMPORTANT KNOX HOTEL INFO**

***PLEASE READ VERY CAREFULLY***

I have reserved 8 rooms at the Baymont Inn in Knoxville. Its 5 mins or less from the park. Its where we stayed last yr for those that dont know. That weekend is the Tenn/Ga football game!!! The rooms last yr were $60 a night. THIS YR BECAUSE OF THE GAME THEY'RE $238 AND SOME CHANGE TOTAL PER ROOM FOR THE WHOLE WEEKEND!!!!! I have reserved the rooms under my name and YOU have to call and RESERVE YOUR OWN ROOM that is under my name. IF i do NOT fill these rooms 2 WEEKS PRIOR to meet i will cancel remaining rooms and you are on your own and good luck!! ALL ROOMS ARE QUEEN DOUBLE!!! It did not matter on single room or whatever on the price, THERE ALL that much for that weekend!! There are a few other hotel's in that lil area and i checked and they're all the same price. If you need a roomie to split the costs get one, I wanted to let everyone know because all the hotels in that area will fill up fast because of the football game so NOW IS THE TIME TO START RESERVING ROOMS!!! Like i said above IF i do not fill these room 2 weeks prior i will cancel non filled rooms. Aslo this is why im postin this thread IF we need more rooms i need to know soon so i can reserve them ASAP!! These rooms are reserved for the 9th and 10th checkin out on sun @ noon......

THE ROOMS ARE RESERVED UNDER (RICHARD HOSNER)
YOU'LL HAVE TO CALL WITH CREDIT CARD # TO RESERVE YOUR OWN ROOM THATS UNDER MY NAME.

LOL i hope i have made this as clear as possible if you have any questions feel free to PM me!! THANKS EVERYONE look fwd to a great time!!!

heres the hotel info:

They don't allow camping in the park, but I'll check some other places. I believe there are some that are not too far from the park, maybe 10 - 15 minutes. I'll check tomorrow, and let you know.

The weekend before sounds good to me. Either way I'm coming, it just might limit my time I'll be spending in Knoxville. Steven, so we are good to go on the room?

Keep us posted Josh on what's up.

I'm game for making it a week earlier, but not later. The next three weekends I have to work and cannot get out of it.

OK guys i done some looking in to the room. first off i started on hotels.com by their site its 79.96 a night same as what i payed for a room in march. then went to the baymont inn site and looked at rates and their the same. thats for the 9-11 oct. now i also checked the rates of the rooms for the week before and its the same price. so we arnt saving any money by moving the meet to the week before. just a fyi

It's been a while since I've been in a math class, but

$238.xx / 2 != 79.96

I would suggest that maybe their website and hotels.com is not up-to-date
