I was thinking about making the trip. Is it worth it? I would probably try to find a campground and save on the hotel $$

I'm def. going but don't know if the car I want to take will be ready - need to get on it!

Not sure if all the rooms are already reserved or just allocated to the event, but when I was looking into it a while back a saw that there's a less expensive hotel just down the street. Not sure about camping but I seem to remember there being some kind of national park.

There is a camp ground very close, just can't remember the name. And tes there are lots of cheaper hotels close. The area is kind of in hotel ally for the Iowa Hawkeye's games. The location is actually in Coralville IA right off of I-80 you can actually see the highway from the parking lot. For some of you younger folks attending there will actually be live music on Friday night by a local Iowa rock band (not Slip Knot) that has been in the recording studio lately. Kind of a cross between Jet and Buck Cherry.

unfortunately an autox isn't a guaranteed option. there may be some possibility that they can get it together but as of right now there isn't one arranged yet.

Would def. be awesome to have one! Is it a matter of setting up/figuring out a course or location, getting cones, what needs to be done?

Lack of location and insurance. They were going to try a rally cross through a corn maze with supplied cars, but it was shot down also. Budgets for this years SOC have been REALLY hard to set because of unknown status of saab. They were a very big supporter of SOC and with them gone the largest sponser is gone.

Hey everyone, I've come out of hibernation to share a link, giving you a preview of our Friday night entertainment for SOC '12. The band is Deadnote and their CD "Redhead" is now available on iTunes. Check it out and get a little taste of what's to come! iTunes - Music - Deadnote

We were talking about going... It's about a 4 hour drive for us, which isn't bad at all.
