X-Fest East 2013 is coming to McHenry, Maryland! That's right guys... the one and only X-Fest East is returning to Wisp Resort. This year's X-Fest will be held in McHenry, MD from October 4th-6th. The itinerary will be light so we have the flexibility to adjust on the fly, but here is my first pass: Fri, Oct 4: Arrive, Meet & Greet, Dinner at DC's Bar & Restaurant (on property), Socializing Sat, Oct 5: Show and Shine (morning). The hotel has agreed to provide reserved parking lot for the weekend for us so we should have plenty of room. Sat, Oct 5: White Water Rafting at Adventure Sports Center International (weather permitting) http://www.adventuresportscenter.com/ or hit up Wisp Outdoor Activities for the Mountain Coaster, Zip Lines, Off-road Segway Tours, Laser Games, etc. http://www.wispresort.com/wisp/info/summer.activities.aspx (day) Sat, Oct 5: Cruise, Dinner, and the ANNUAL RAFFLE (afternoon) Sat, Oct 5: Socializing (nightcap) Sun, Oct 6: Breakfast and Roll Out We can certainly make some time for kart racing like usual (if they're open) or whatever else anyone wants to do. We'll have organized dinners on Friday and Saturday nights with the group. We'll have a raffle with some GREAT prizes following Saturday's dinner. For those of you who have never been to one of these events, it's laid back and casual. It's not about tons of vendors setting up booths to push their products. It's a chance to put faces to the names you see on here every day. It's a chance for the new guys with stock rigs to see in person what can be done and ask all the questions that haven't been answered here (are there any of those?). It's about meeting new people, building camaraderie, and having fun with people that likely have very much the same interests you do. These types of meets are what is best about this forum. For the ladies, Wisp has a GREAT SPA. The Sewickley Spa at Wisp Resort should help to ease the pain of having to spend the entire weekend with us. :rofl: The Show & Shine will be informal with no entry fee this year. There will be two separate classes "stockish" and "modified" so as not to put the new guys at a disadvantage. We hope everyone will participate for a chance to win a nice prize package. I have blocked 15 rooms (and I fully intend to be calling for a larger block) at Wisp Resort ($119/night +tax) which is basically at the base of Marsh Mountain and on the banks of Deep Creek Lake. The room block is reserved under XR-UNDERGROUND. You will be reserving a Queen Suite (see room floorplan here). You also have the option to reserve any other room but the King Suite or the King Fireplace Suite for the same rate. The last day to get a guaranteed room in the hotel block is September 23 - so try to book your rooms in advance of that. FYI - the hotel is pet friendly.

Don't miss out on the most bad ass event of the year! See you guys there! :driver::rockon: Please PM NHXRUNNER once you've confirmed your reservation so I can keep an updated list of who is confirmed to be attending. We need a minimum of 10 rooms booked to get the reduced rate. But that's not going to be an issue because we're going to get a GREAT turnout this year. Confirmed Attendee List (If your name is not on this list, I have not received a PM confirming your reservation) 1. NHXRUNNER, Mrs. NHXRUNNER, & XRU Mascot 2. gearhead899 3.

I worked it out so that I can pay for my "seat" in the boat and then hold as many other boats as we require. If we have full boats (6 to a boat/$290 per boat) the cost is less than $50 per person. We will all split the total cost so the closer to full boats we can get the better. The catch is that I will likely be on the hook for the other seats if they are not filled. What I need is for you to PM ME if you are COMMITTING to rafting on Saturday. I will book the boats on FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 27th. Please let me know ASAP.
