    We have a block of rooms covering 9/22-9/26 at a rate of $79/night (plus taxes) for either a single King or Double Standard rooms. When calling to reserve a room, please mention that you are reserving under the “SVO Club of America” block of rooms to not only get the noted rate, but also check off the room from our block. They will try and get you in a 1st or 2nd floor room with a parking lot view to keep an eye on your SVO if you request it.

    Friday (9/23)
    We will visit a few Rt.66 focused spots and even drive part of the original route.



    Show/Shine (9/24)
    Due to some scheduling issues, we are mixing things up a bit this year and will have our show within a local show! Don't worry, we are still having our own SVOCA activities/voting/raffle prizes, just at a different venue. Plan is to leave SVO Central at 9am to head out to the event, so plan accordingly. You don't have to worry about being separated from our group at the show, we will reserve spots for all that are attending.



    Auto-X (9/25)
    We will be participating with the Chicago Region SCCA at their Event #6, which will be held in the parking lot of the Route 66 Raceway. The size of the lot there allows for a pretty high speed course (i.e.- no Miata type course layout). You will register online with the CRSCCA for this event, but NOT YET! We are working on a deal to have our own SVO class and should have updates in late April. Here is a link to some videos from a friend that used to run with the CRSCCA @ Rt66. The courses are all pretty similar, but you can get the idea of how ‘open’ the courses are with the speed shown on his telemetry. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...00236F99166735

    General
    This Reunion location is in the NW suburbs of Chicago, right off of I-90 and Barrington roads, so it is easy to access and get almost anywhere in the Chicagoland area. There are a bunch of local shopping and eating establishments. We here at the SVOCA will do our best to make this an enjoyable Reunion for all and hope not only to see some familiar faces, but also make some new friends as well!

    Mark, thanx for asking and hope you can make it out. I have been running around a lot this summer and been a bit slack on updating the details. Nothing chiseled in stone yet, but I do have some updated info.

    I had picked out a couple of activities for Friday, but after thinking about it for a few weeks, I am not 100% happy with the original direction I was headed in. I am gathering up some new ideas and will get something nailed down mid-August. Trust me, it will be something 'fun' for us to be doing as a group!

    I have picked out a venue for the show on Saturday, just need to finalize the event with the hosting location and DJ, so we aren't sitting in silence. The spot is in virtual walking distance to SVO Central and has some great Chicago style food!

    I am still in contact with the auto-x director of the CRSCCA and he is excited to see a group of SVO's come out to the September event. He is all for putting us in our own separate class, but needs to finalize the details with the rest of his Board of Directors. He still feels we don't need to pre-register just yet as the September event apparently never fills up due to being later in the season. As soon as he can get that laid out and finalized I will update on that.

    I do have to mention that the block of rooms at the Hampton Inn will be closing on 8/18, so if you are planning on attending or thinking of attending, PLEASE get your reservations in sooner than later to guarantee a room and the rate noted above!

    If anyone has any questions/concerns/comments feel free to post here or send me a PM.

    Hey, just a friendly reminder that the SVOCA block of rooms at the Hampton Inn & Suites will be released to the general public after tomorrow (8/18)! So, if you haven't booked your room yet, better not delay any longer to guarantee the rate along with a room. There are still a couple left in the block. Good luck and see you soon!

    News flash...the hotel has extended the block of rooms/special rate out till 8/23!!

    While they still do have room availability outside our block, the room rates are $20-30 per night HIGHER outside our block rate. They suggested even if you are 'on the fence' whether you can make it to reserve a room at our rate and you have up until 24 hours prior to your scheduled arrival to cancel without any charges (i.e.- no harm, no foul). Hope some of you folks can take advantage of the extension.
