    Host Hotel: Chattanooga Choo Choo


    NOTE: This is a large facility. Chances are, they will not run out of rooms but we have a contract in place with management that guaranteed club rate and our participants will have their reservations PRIOR to Sept 23rd.
    If you want the club rate, you MUST reserve your room before Sept 23rd.

    Please note our group code is SVO. If calling to reserve your room mention this code. If you dont, you will not be receiving our club discounted rate.
    Toll-free reservations number is 800-872-2529 (800-Track 29).

    Host Hotel website is www.choochoo.com
    1400 Market St. • Chattanooga, TN 37402

    Room rates: $91 per night (plus taxes) - non-club rate is $139 per night
    Railcars rates: $169 per night (plus taxes) - non-club rate is $179 per night

    All SVO Reunion participants will be located in "Hotel 3" - see the map lay out. Unless you elect to stay in a Railcar. What's a railcar? It's an actual historic RailRoad railcar that's been converted into a hotel room. Pretty cool. These's stand alone on the railroad tracks.

    An electric powered Shuttle operates to/from the Host Hotel on a daily basis. It will take you DownTown to all the cool stuff Chattanooga has to offer (it's a lot).
    There are things for the WHOLE FAMILY to enjoy here and this is some of the downtown stuff;
    www.cdmfun.org
    www.tnaqua.org < -- also has IMAX theater
    www.chattzoo.org
    www.bluemooncruises.org

    Chattanooga Area Convention and Visitors Bureau is www.chattanoogafun.com.

    Poker Run

    Fill your tank. Make sure you have your cell phone. Bring your GPS!!

    Start location: Host Hotel parking lot - in front of Building 3
    Start Time: 9am
    Entry: SVOCA Members: FREE - Non-Members: $30 (includes entry to Sat show/shine)
    Best Hand wins: BRAND NEW (unlocked) Galaxy Tab

    What's a poker run? First and foremost, it is NOT a speed event. The premise is quite simple; participants are dealt (2) playing cards from a deck of cards. (1) car qualifies as (1) participant. Once dealt your initial 2 cards, you are given an address - drive (within legal limits) to the address given for another 'dealt' card and the next address. There are (5) total locations you will be given to find to obtain a card. Return with your (7) cards to the start location and turn in your best 5 card 'poker' hand from those (7) cards. Trust me .. it's easy. You will get to see parts of Chattanooga and it's surrounding area, in your SVO, and get a chance to win a VERY cool prize.

    The best poker hand wins ... THIS

    The Poker Run sounds like a fun idea, although I was looking forward to having the top dyno numbers again.

    If I get the SVO running and it goes all summer without issues, we'll drive it down. hoping if I get all the other issues resolved on it, I can get the A/C working and make it a decently comfortable drive.

    We will miss you guys this year . We always liked having you on the dyno and seeing the cars. Sounds like you will have a good one though.
