> We're opening the event to all members of the Audi community, odd

> Lodging is somewhat pricey in the area, but I noticed

> the Wake Robin Inn(under entirely new management and supposedly
> 1000x
> better than it was a few years ago- its the preferred place of Skip
> Barber schools for their own people now) will probably be around
> $120-130/night, but I haven't called to talk to them yet(its a B&B;

> c)if you're only coming Sunday, would you either be able to get in
