    JD Where is the Grand going to be? I heard a lot of scuttle on it not going to happen at Sparta. It is still up in the air as the WSC is still closed ( except for the retail area ). With the anti gun state of Illinois being broke I am not sure  it will happen there.

    JD hit the link for more info. This page shows 3 motels in Sparta. Since you are planning on making reservations early one of these might have space.

    Jim.  How long and when are you planning on going and being there.  It will be in Sparta.  Didn’t look at which hotels are listed but there is really only two that I would stay at.  HI is the newest, but is really gouging the shooters.  I heard like $175 or more.  The other is usually booked by the EC and I believe it is a Best Western now.  I has changed hands a couple of times.

    Check the hotels in Red Bud.  Don Chrapla and Dwight Paulin have stayed there and said it was nice.

    There is also a Best Western in Chester.

    There are a couple of hotels scattered around within 30 miles or less.

    I have been renting houses for at lease six or seven years now.  The one I have now is less than 10 min. from the grounds.  Ron and I pay $600 for the main week.  Nothing fancy but 2 bedrooms and central air, car port, and everything else you normally have in a house.  The owner moves out for the week.  Leaves us some beer and booze.  What more can you ask for.  I will ask around to see if they know of any other houses available.
