Solo Nationals Newsletter - May Edition
« on: May 28, 2009, 12:03:15 pm »
•         A reminder that registration is open and the cost: $135/person, $180 with waiver for anyone not attending a 2009 Tour or Divisional event.  After August 14,the entry fee goes up to $270, so don’t delay registering.
•         The Monday night welcome party will be from 5:30 p.m. - 10 p.m. and will be hosted by the Smith Collection Museum of American Speed and the Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau.  All attendees are invited to partake of the food and festivities which include a tour of the museum.  For a sneak peak visit  
•         Overnight Parking/Camping is allowed at the Lincoln Airpark.  The cost is $40 and registration is located on the National Championship webpage.
•         The host hotel is the Embassy Suites located less than 10 minutes from the event site.  We do have a special rate of $109/night and a link for registration is on the National Championship website.  We recommend making hotel reservations early, as the Nebraska State Fair and a University of Nebraska football game will be occurring at the same time as the National Championship and ProSolo Finale.
•         The new site location brings a new look to the banquets.  Wednesday and Friday night will be reception-style, allowing competitors to mix and mingle prior to entering the hall for the awards ceremonies.  Food will be plentiful.  All competitors will receive one (1) drink ticket that may be redeemed for beer or wine -- after that it is a cash bar.  Additional dinner tickets may be purchased on site or by calling the Solo department at 800-770-2055.  The cost is $20/Adult and $10/child (10 and younger).  This is a reduction from last years pricing of $25/$15.
•         Downtown parking at the Embassy Suites may be a challenge for anyone attending the Awards Ceremonies with their rigs in tow.  But don’t worry!  The City of Lincoln has arranged for off-site parking and shuttle transportation to and from the hotel.  Parking will be provided free of charge at the University of Lincoln baseball complex -- security will be provided to watch your vehicles -- beginning at 4 p.m. on Wed and Fri.  Return shuttles will run until 10:30pm.  After that you will need to walk or call a taxi.  The host hotel is located within walking distance of The Haymarket District -- a hot bed of food, drink and entertainment.  Expect to be asked at Paddock Check-In if you will be using the shuttle service --  we need a head count to give to the city.
