The campground at the facility is cheap, but there is no electricity, and no campfires and no bbqs allowed. wacko.gif

Any ideas?

Any plans?

Nice. eyesre4.gif  I'm guessing the "facilities" are pretty rustic as well.

I am planning on going. The hubs & I will drive up mid-day (from about 2 hours away) and were planning on staying at a hotel either in Sarnia or Port Huron that night rather than driving home after the show.

I don't know anything about Sarnia except for the train station, though, so I will be no help in arranging a meet-up.

We're thinking of a hotel too!  The campground is just a big park - not a campground... that's why the strict rules and regulations.

Hotel = drinks, shower, bed, electricity = new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

So do we want to coordinate our hotel?  I've only driven through Sarnia so I don't know what's there.  I think we're just going to get the GA tickets if we go.  It does sound like the camping sucks.  Let me know what you guys want to do so we can backtime our trip down.

I found a motel in Port Huron that is $72 with a queen bed, it's the cheapest one I found in the area.

We can get a discount if we can get a group large enough for nine rooms.

I'll check the discount rate so we know what it is.

Best Western Hospitality Inn

2282 Water Street, Port Huron, Michigan, 48060

It's not fancy but we're just sleeping there and there is breakfast included.

We can't get at discount unless we book 10 rooms.  The Internet pricing is just about as good as the discount though.  The guy I talked to quoted me a price about $10 higher for a single room than the website was giving me.

Sounds good to me! Thanks Digi!

I ordered my tickets on Saturday, went with VIP (I've never been a fan of GA).  We will probably get over there around 3 - 3:30 pm. Is there someplace near the venue we could meet up before the show for dinner/drinks?

We're going to opt for the GA area and bring lawn chairs.  I don't think there's any seating in the VIP area.

I am camping with 3 buddies at the campground. I will be cheap, rustic, and fun as hell! It says no drinks inside the 'campground' but......we'll see

We are seeing The Scorpians the night before for something to do, then Rush VIP style the next day

Ordered tickets for it! Me and 3 buddies are camping there Thursday night, MAYBE see the Scorpians. Then RUSH the next day, me and my buddy Zac are VIP, and my 2 other buddies are general admission.

Hey everyone,

Is anyone driving out from T.O. that day and going back that night after the show? If so I'd be willing to share the driving and cost of gas, in your vehice or mine, let me know!

Chris
