Anyone know the official Fiero count at the show?

Price gouging 101.
Glad I'm less than 2 hrs away.

The weather was great, warm and sunny all day, but I believe that 13 more pre-registered, paid and didn't show up due to being scared away by the rainy weather the previous day.
Yes the hotel rates are soaring out of control. I paid $168 to stay at a LaQuinta Inn in Mechanicsburg on Friday night that had a nightly rate of about $55.00 in the fall. They really stick it to you come Carlisle show time. I've paid less at 4 star hotels and LaQuinta is not one of them. .Price gouging for sure.

Thanks for posting the winners Spoon! I need to catch up ;-)

That is interesting about the hotels Steve - how far out do you usually reserve? We can definitely look at pursuing a block deal somewhere if the rates continue to be high.

I've always booked around the first of the year. I decided to check when I got home on Sunday afternoon and I was shocked. Maybe they just try to rope in the early birds and the price will drop later but I doubt it. If it doesn't become more reasonable I won't be spending any hotel money in Carlisle. I don't like the idea of three hours up, a day in the sun or rain and then 3 hours home Saturday night. The place I stayed in this year was not sold out. Doubt they'll sell out at $60.00 a night more!

I booked at Days In South via Trivago --- $109 per night. (Gave it a 2 rating). There were probably 10 FIERO in the parking lot. The prior year I stayed at the Fairfield which was new and just down the street. Fairfield's rates increased $60.00 per night ($160.00) so I booked at the Days Inn. (I rated the Fairfield a solid 5 for the value). I'll continue to shop the price and availability and hopefully it becomes more reasonable. I just remember that in 2016 the date of the show changed to a week earlier. Thinking that that hotels didn't know and didn't jack the prices up for the show.

For 2018, it will be June 23.

I'm thinking that it is perhaps a bit of opportunistic early bird price gouging. Those prices seem strangely high from everything we've ever seen in that area. Steve - do keep us posted. We were thinking of possibly staying over next year so I'll be curious.
