      The hotel info is:

      LA QUINTA INN & SUITES NASHVILLE AIRPORT/OPRYLAND
      2345 ATRIUM WAY
      NASHVILLE, TN 37214
      615-885-3000

      Mention (OPEL CLUB)

      The group rate is $115.00 per night with 40 rooms blocked, check in Friday Aug 11th, Checkout Sunday the 13th. I will be keeping a close call on the amount of rooms, I would plan to secure your room ASAP, but there is a three week cut off up until August 11th. I will get more rooms if I feel we are going to fill it up more. Hotel is an easy trip to the venue, convenient to Grand Ole Opry and the Opryland Hotel. Plenty of parking in a secure area, outdoor pool, and we have the large meeting room reserved. Close to the airport also for members who wish to fly in.

      Don't you know that Speedweek at Bonneville starts on the 10th (Inspections) and ends on the 18th? . . .

      Unfortunately every weekend seems to conflict with something somewhere. Any earlier and it's miserable around here. Not that it's not hot at Bonneville but it's a different type of heat. We sweat here.

      Just pulling a chain Harold, it's a bit far from Phoenix anyway. I hope to be attending the West coast MG club convention in Santa Maria, CA in late July, then my 55th HS reunion in early August in Manhattan, KS so "go East young man" is not in the works! Y'all have a good time (as my brother would say).

      Just tried to make my reservations at the hotel. Since this is going to be a "blocked" section of rooms, the people at the phone number above can't help you. You need to call 1-866-527-1498 and only on weekdays after 7:30 AM Central Time. I'll try again on Monday!

      Looking forward to it!

      I was told there wouldn't be these problems, I'll try to call the manager tomorrow and find out. Seems like that is always the issue at the Carlisle hotel, have to call during a business day.

      OK... Signed up for the hotel for the Nashville Nationals. Calling the number: 1-866-527-1498 is the way to go. They have all the block of rooms information. Very nice lady took my information. By the way, I checked and I'm the first to sign up. Better sign up now!

      Do you have any graphics, logo or whatever, for this event. I'm trying to put something about this in The Blitz.

      Also, let me know if you want to promote it in the Blitz, with an article, (free) advert, etc.

      We have an idea, I just need to get with Daytona Trophey about creating it. Then we can get dash plaques in the design as well

      The Lane Museum is awesome! Would be there in a heartbeat if it weren't so damned far away.

      I travel to Nashville on business occasionally, and best hotel deals are usually out by the airport.

      If you have something temporary, or can tell me what it is and it's something I can approximate, I can put it in the Blitz. Give me some text to go with it and I'll give it a half page and devote a full page to the event.

      Keep sending me stuff and I'll get it into each issue.

      Thank you Keith, Harold and everybody else involved in organization of this event. My wife will come with me and we will likely make one week road trip with the GT, returning via Asheville, Blue Ridge Parkway, Roanoke and Pittsburgh, some 2000 miles.

      It is really important that while in Nashville, we get a chance for some sightseeing and group activities, rather than just a car show. Whatever you guys are planning (should I say “yall”) let us know well in advance. Don’t feel that you are alone in planning this event. Aside from loving country music, I am not familiar with Nashville but those who are might come with some suggestions. That will help you but also allow us to adjust our personal plans. Upcoming Carlisle Saturday evening b.s. session could be utilized for some discussion related to Opel Nationals agenda.

      Agree. I'm trying to figure out how many 'extra days' to spend there. Would like to visit Keith's shop also.
