Default American Royal Questions

Ok, I have the days off to go to the American Royal.

So it is worth going to? Sounds like alot of teams.

I would need to borrow, rent or barter tents, tables and other items.

Lots of hotel space around the area? Think anything is availble?

Looking for Helpful hints.

Troy

There should not be any problems of getting you the items you need. Make a list & post.

There is not much going on around KC on that weekend, so hotels should be easy to get.

I live in town, let me know what I can help with.

I can guarantee that there is NOTHING like the AR. There are over 460 teams already placed (for spots) for this year. If you are coming and expecting to win, then I would say it is not worth coming. You need to come and plan on having a GREAT time and meet lots of other teams and HOPE you do well.

I made some reservations this afternoon for that weekend with no problem. I am cooking it for the first time this year. I have judged it for the last five years. It is a sight to see and should be on the bucket list of anyone who is a BBQ fanatic. keith

Instead of a hotel, rent an RV and stay on site.

I was just on Google looking at hotels and see they are not that close, plus the cost for the Marriot is $190 per night.

I will Google RV rentals and see how that works.

Get ahold of premier coach, they have rv's and travel trailers. I got a quote from them for a travel trailer, really easy to work with and prices weren't that far off a hotel and they do deliver

I am staying with my cooker but get a hotel for my wife. Check out the hotel savoy. $110 per night and includes a breakfast to die for. A taxi ride is $12.00 as getting in and out Friday night can be crazy. Pm me if you want more info. Keith
