Places you can reserve hotel room's in the area that are recommended.
Super 8 Motel in West branch which is roughly 8 Miles from the testing site, and roughly 15 miles from the Meeting location.

Badlands entertainment Complex Bowling and Lodging.
Decent rural Motel, more for the budget minded individual room's a bit cheaper, also Closest to Meeting and Testing area's Roughly 1.5 miles from meeting area. Roughly 4-5 miles from Testing Location. Has it's own resturant, and bowling alley as well, so you could have something to do the night before the meet if desired, the resturant does serve Breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The Scenic Motel.
A commonly stayed in local motel for people comeing up north on vacations. Not a very High end Motel. Although if on a major budget may be more cost effective to you. This is simply a motel, although there is a local dinner next door that serves outstanding breakfast, they also serve lunch and dinner if desired, although the resturant next door is mainly recommended for breakfast only. There is also a mcdonalds within walking distance of this location, and a Great pizzaria for dinner if desired. All of these facilities are within rougly 800ft or less walking distance from this motel. There is also a gas station right across the street if things are needed. This motel is situated roughly 2,700ft from the meeting location of glens markets. There is also a family dollar, should small things be needed within about 2-3 blocks walk. This motel is roughly 5 miles from the Testing location.
It is reccomended if you plan to attend this event, and stay in one of these establishments, that you call ahead and make reservations. This area is widely used on the weekends as a recreation area for GM workers and Ford motors. If you neglect to plan ahead and make reservations, you might end up sleeping in your car, and AlPiNe doesn't want to see that occur.
Also if you have a CB channel 32 will be in use when getting close to the Meeting location. If you don't have a CB it might be a fun event to obtain one.
Hope to see you all there.
