Just wondering if anyone knows when the 2019 Bash registration begins?

They are still working on it I don`t believe they have a date set yet. SAI is in France right now.

Hotel booked.

Any word on the 2019 bash registration yet?

 

 

Dan, check back in about two weeks, they've got their hands full with the Barrett-Jackson event now. So I would expect to see something by the end of the month.

Tried to make reservation at Silverton and they are saying that the "Resort Fees" are on top of the negotiated rates.  The daily resort fee is ~$21.50 on top of daily rate.  Is this for real?  Is it not possible for Shelby to negotiate this fee out of the contract?  It's not like we are hanging out taking advantage of pools and other amenities.  May be looking else where for lodging.

You can look elsewhere for lodging but don't be surprised when you see a "resort fee" at most every other hotel.

I'm in no way defending resort fee's and detest them myself but it is what it is and hotels do not wave them, well I suppose if you are a high roller and spend big in the Casino they will comp the resort fee.

It's going to be very difficult to find a place in Vegas without the "resort fees".  In fact, I'd wager you might want to think twice about the places that don't have them.

I can be convinced to move to a less expensive hotel.  Last year I was at the Mardi Gras.  Their resort fee is only $5 instead of $18.99.  Unfortunately it is not that much less expensive.  You do get to park right outside your room and that makes it easy to wash your car Sunday morning.  Not sure how everyone else washed their cars last year for Sunday Morning.

ps.  I would be happy to car caravan with another driver(s) on the morning of the 14th.  I'm leaving from Thousand Oaks

When choosing a "host hotel" for the Vegas Bash it is always a compromise as some folks want a 5-star luxury resort where others want the lowest priced accommodations in  Las Vegas. The TS staff then has to factor in hotels that have banquet rooms and ample secured parking not just for cars but also for attendees who bring a trailer/hauler with them. We then have to take into account the hotels proximity to Shelby American and whatever track we have rented out along with ease of access to the hotel.

Host hotel suggestions are always welcome but we have to realize not everyone will be satisfied so all we can do is compromise on the wants & needs of our guests that will hopefully satisfy the majority of them. I should also mention, especially for any first timers, the host hotel is not mandatory, you are free to stay where ever you like. Las Vegas is a big town with plenty of options.

As a local (now for 5 years and several-times-a-year for over 20 before that) I would also mention that every hotel north of and including Mandalay Bay now charges for parking.  So in addition to the resort fee, you will have a daily parking fee.  If you want the bee-hive activity of the strip for after hours it may be worth it.  In my industry we had lots of meetings in Vegas, and for a "conference" like the Bash, where almost every hour of every day is planned, we chose properties that were less costly - after all it's just a place to crash after a long day.   5 years ago that included the Tropicana and Bally's but now they are using Suite hotels in Henderson.    

The South Point is another south-of-the-strip property with lots of parking (since they have the rodeo/horse arena so trailer parking) but it won't be cheap if there is an event there.

Besides, Silverton has a Bass Pro Shop :)
