Preferably, as what's worked well in the past with the EVers in Washington, DC, Vancouver and Austin was having the hosting EAA Chapter Members volunteer to house the visiting EAA Attendees. Especially the early sign-ups. That type of accommodation is still the first intention, but that’s probably going to be quite limited, because of various factors. Particularly the distance to the Route 66 Raceway. Do plan on low cost lodging such as Motel 6 (ten miles away) in Joliet ($40/night) as part of your budgeting considerations. Motel 6 usually charges $6 for an extra person. The 5th EVer Chair is in the process of reserving a block of rooms. Also, RVs will be allowed to park overnight at the Route 66 Raceway. Contact: Terry Wilson, the 5th EVer Registrar EAAHistorian@care2.com (408) 446-9357. Note: Terry also has graciously offered to serve as "Share A Room" Coordinator as well as do ridesharing coordination from the Midway Airport. Hasta Aloha & Plugging in America, pronto!
