At SOC06 in Lake George registration was more then this years by about $60. The food was excellent, especially the Saturday dinner when they did the award ceremony. Prime rib, full buffet, dessert, the works.

nope, just 4 meals at $43 each, a wonderful value as usual

yeah i just noticed that it is $350 for two people to go. sorry but no thanks. i cannot afford that. for some reason i thought the $170 was for two.

Too bad too as i really want to go especially seeing as i am only about 20 miles away across the border in NH

Yeah, eff than noise, that's a lot of money. I'd also have to renew my membership at the same time...

I foresee a lot of club barbecuing rather than the formal meals this year.

Thats what I'm thinking. Get a big pot, fill it with beer, toss lots of brats in and let it go.

Well the price for the viking challenge, (dyno + autocross) seems fair to me. Still what the hell. 170 for just me+40 renew member+100 or 35 (I may skip dyno and just do autox). God I'm gonna have to hold on the trigger for now though.

I think I remember people saying from last year that you could get day passes, but then you can't get into the parts tent.

Cripes. They don't have one again. Geez. That'll teach me for looking too quick while I'm at work. Blech.

I do think it's weird they are not doing breakfast.... just lunch/dinner on fri & sat + a shirt. Insurance takes up some of that money but SOC's are never cheap!!

I went to SOC last year. I went to meet the Saabers. Didn't do any of the meals. Didn't do any of the seminars. Paid $20 for the day pass to the parts tent. Drank a lot in the parking lot at night, and had a blast meeting and talking with everyone.


Paying for SOC is a joke. If you're going to go to just meet people and hang out and have a good weekend. It's well worth the Gas + Hotel + Food + parts you buy.

I'm a little peeved that the hotel is going to be so expensive, but the registration is on par with previous conventions. The lack of day passes is kind of a bummer because Mr. Guru definitely wanted to come hang out Saturday, but he'll get over it.

so how is it that Carlisle can offering camping for a lot less money. figure lunch dinner twice at $20 a piece that is $80. Are they really saying it costs $30 a day to get in? that is bit nuts especially considering the yearly membership dues as well. And to have the price for 3 day or 2 day passes? that is a slight rip off as well.

how much were day passes before? less than $30 a piece per day?

This is why all you guys need to go to Carlisle next year! I think I spent $60 to register, which included camping, showfield registration and food from CPSC!

edit- I just called the hotel this AM and there are still plenty of rooms left. "only" $119.00/night.
