I'll second Kiyoshi's encouragement on getting your hotel in order. Solvang can fill up on normal sunny random weekends and September is a popular time given its right before or at wine harvest season (usually late Sep/Early Oct.).

Ironically, I'm in Solvang today coming home with my kids from Disneyland we decided to stop here to break up the drive. Quaint little town but yes limited hotel options. I'm at the Kronberg Inn at the moment and it's nice.

I walked past the Hotel Corque and it looked like one of the nicest hotels in town.

One MUST do breakfast in Solvang. Aebleskivers, Danish pastries and coffee, done.

As for WCLM hotels... When I checked mid-week, there were about 13-14 more rooms in the WCLM block at Hotel Corque. So, it looks certain that we'll sell them out. For alternatives there's a Holiday Inn Express in Solvang, the Chumash Casino/Resort in Santa Ynez (2 miles), a Marriott and a few motels in Buellton (4 miles).

Just to tease you some more...
> Happy Hour & tour of the Solvang Vintage Motorcycle Museum (they have many one of a kind bikes!)
> Optional WCLM Track Day at Buttonwillow Raceway
> Pre-Banquet Cocktail & Wine Tasting Hour+
And more...

Cheers,
Kiyoshi

I'll add, if in fact the Corque sells out, we also all have quite a few really nice options through VRBO. However, The Corque is where all the action will be at!

Looking forward to it Kiyoshi.

Booked a 2 Queen bed room at Hotel Corque, as they were totally out of King bed rooms (regardless of whether with the WCLM block).

IF anyone booked a King bed room and would prefer a 2 queen room, please let me know. Just me and my gf, so we don't need two beds.

IMPORTANT WCLM HOTEL NEWS

The Hotel Corque is sold out. We are trying to get more rooms, but chances are poor. We are now on the hunt for a back-up hotel and will share any developments.

And...

If you've not registered, there is still time to take advantage of the Early Bird Discount. Save $50 per person by registering for the BRG-WCLM before June 21st!!!

Cheers,
Kiyoshi

The last days to take advantage of Early Bird Registration for the BRG-WCLM.

SAVE $50 by registering for the WCLM by 11:59pm PDT Wednesday June 21, that's 4 days and 2 hours from now...

You DON'T want to miss the Spencer's Motorsports WCLM Autocross at the Emergency Vehicle Operations Center at the Allan Hancock College in Lompoc. We get to use most of their 1.2 mile track and urban training roads!

Tried to register at ms reg and they wanted my member number for the discounted early bird reg. I'm a GGLC member via the So Cal Lotus club, but have no idea what my member number is. What should I do? Im out of town 'till Friday so there's zero chance of finding my number before the early bird rate expires.

Craigyirush - Just ignore MSR's request for a membership number by either clicking through the page or typing in any number. Email me if you have a problem at marcom"at"gglotus.org.

P.S. The same goes for any member of a Lotus club that wants to register.
