I have a call in to some friends who's family owns a Rental House in Chelsea which is about a mile or so from the Casinos to see how much we could get it for, for the weekend.



Chelsea Manor

It is just a small little cozy 9 bedroom 6.5 bath house...used to be where the REAL RatPack used to hang out when they were in Atlantic City...

I don't think I will be making it to A/C this year...not unless I win the lottery or find a 20lb stack of $50's

There is a 3 day weekend that has the casino's booked or not offering discounts. Beachcombers has a guy looking into options for places to stay. I'm sure they would not mind a few Rarpackers tagging along. I'll pass on more as it becomes available.

I know nothing about Atlantic City but here goes, I was checking for Friday night.
If you like Casinos, the Tropicana is $136 a night including taxes. Cheapest I found.

For regular hotels they were from $60 to $125 including taxes but I have no idea where they are actually located and if they are safe.

I don't care if we actually stay in AC as I don't drink or gamble, I just wanna drive fast! So if everyone wanted to stay on the Eastern Shore or whatever it would be fine with me. I would however like to go the route where you take the ferry.

Beachcombers found a HI Express in Dover for $89 a night Friday and/or Saturday night. I'm sure theya re ok with as many Vettes as possible staying there. Just ask for the Corvette Club price.

Holiday Inn 561 DuPont Highway, Dover, DE Rate is $89.00 plus tax Phone number 302-747-5050.

Thanks for the update!

Where is Dover and what time does the Kerbeck thing end? I was thinking I'd just drive home after the run but I guess I'll wait and see what everyone else is planning.

Yes, every bit of it, and then some. No, seriously just cash flow is not anyplace where I can afford to take a weekend fun trip out of town at the moment.

The Ferry is a great meeting place, usually when I go up to AC for music stuff, we all just meet at the Ferry at a designated time, cross over together, then take our own routes and pace to the venue. It can get a little pricey though, it was like $30-$40 last year to cross.


It is fun when the water is rough...rock and roll baby.

So where are we at with this? Has anyone made reservations at that hotel in Dover? How many peeps from around here are planning to go? I'd like to make my reservations at a hotel but I'm waiting for other people first cuz I'm funny like that.
