9th Annual Florida BMX Spring Fling Show & Reunion 3/31-4/2 2017

The biggest BMX show on the East Coast is going on April Fools weekend, 2017.
Confirmed guests this year are Bob Haro, Mat Hoffman, Perry "PK Ripper" Kramer, Ron Wilkerson, Brian Blyther, Mike Buff, Mike Dominguez, Greg Esser, John Buultjens (Haro Bikes), Todd Lyons (SE Racing), Xavier Mendez, Ken Coster (Skyway), Trey Jones, Chad DeGroot (Profile, Deco) and DBlocks and his NYC crew. More guests will be announced.

Here are the tentative plans. We will be adding some other fun events to this timeline.
-Friday night- welcome party at Panama Hattie's AND BMX Racing at St Augustine BMX track. There will be "OLD SCHOOL BMX" classes, so start training! More info coming!
-Saturday- 9th Annual Florida BMX Spring Fling & Reunion at the St. John's Pier Pavilion.
-Saturday night- Afterparty at Panama Hattie's AND the Raw Deal Tees Moonlight BMX Beach race at 11pm.
-Sunday- The "David Heath Memorial" BMX ride through historic St Augustine with a stop for a group photo at Castillo San de San Marcos. The ride will split for a family friendly ride, while the second group heads to the No Name Bar for live music, adult beverages, and a fun afternoon.

As of right now, it appears that our host hotel-the Regency Inn is 100% booked. The hotel right next to that, which is also directly across the street from the Spring Fling location is the SUPER 8 MOTEL. Here's the important part- DO NOT say that you are coming here for the "Spring Fling" event. They apparently think that we are a motorcycle gang! They will tell you that they have no rooms if you tell them that! The rooms are currently around $85 bucks a night. So, just tell them that you are a family on vacation!
If they tell you that they are booked, call the Super 8 1-800 number at 1-800-454-3213! THERE ARE ROOMS AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW!
Super 8 St. Augustine Beach
311 A1A Beach Boulevard , Saint Augustine, FL 32080 US

I tried online and tried calling the Super 8  1-800 number. All rooms are booked that weekend. I was able to book Best Western Seaside Inn . Checking in Friday and checking out Monday. Road tripping down from Wisconsin . Pretty stoked to be attending my first Spring Fling.

Man, I am seriously considering making this happen.  Joey, might you have room for a friend down I-94?

Yeah I am upset, we are closing on our house on 31 Mar and move in 1 Apr. And to be honest I would rather delay a couple days and make it over. Im in Tampa so I'm still tempted to try and hop over on Saturday.
