    X-Fest East 2015 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 9th-11th. The itinerary will be light so we have the flexibility to adjust on the fly, but here is my first pass:

    Fri, Oct 9: Arrive, Meet & Greet, Dinner at DC's Bar & Restaurant (on property), Socializing
    Sat, Oct 10: 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 10: 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/...ctivities.aspx (day)
    Sat, Oct 10: Cruise, Dinner, and the ANNUAL RAFFLE (afternoon)
    Sat, Oct 10: Socializing (nightcap)
    Sun, Oct 11: 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, there are two day spa's within 10 mins of the resort. Deep Creek Salon or Lake Salon 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.

    BOOKING INFO

    *UPDATE*
    The Room Block at Wisp has expired. If you are looking to book a room please contact me directly via PM. I will speak with the Group Sales Manager at that time about whether I can get you a discounted rate. This weekend is expected to sell out and now that the room block has expired they are no longer obligated to provide the discount. If they are sold out there is still the option of the Quality Inn. The details of the Quality Inn reservation discounts are below.

    I have blocked 17 rooms at Wisp Resort which is basically at the base of Marsh Mountain and on the banks of Deep Creek Lake. You will be reserving either a Double Suite or a Queen Efficiency Suite(see room floorplan here). Double Suites for $149/night (Sleeps 6) or Queen Efficiency Suites (Sleeps 4) for $119/night +tax. The room block is reserved under XRU, Group Booking ID 1834. The last day to get a guaranteed room in the hotel block is September 11 - so try to book your rooms in advance of that. FYI - the hotel is pet friendly but there are only a few rooms in our block that are. Also the hotel is booked solid for the weekend, overflow will be at the Quality Inn down the street. I encourage you to book rooms in pairs at a minimum so we can keep everyone together. The Quality Inn is also a great option for those that would prefer less expensive lodging. When you call if you use the discount code LCORP1 you'll receive 10% off the going rate. :top:

    This first post and thread will be updated with more information as it becomes available! 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.

    ATTENTION WHITE WATER RAFTERS!!!!

    We have to book the boats in advance. 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 at least 12 rafters the cost will be under $45 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.

    Confirmed Rafters (If your name is not on this list, I have not received a PM from you) RED users have paid (required by 10/7)

    It will be costly for any Canucks to come down if our currency stays this low. 100.00 US will cost 133.00 Canadian to buy.

    Ok, guys so I just got off the phone with the Quality Inn, which is right down the street. They've given me a 10% discount code which I'll add to the OP. The discount code is LCORP1. Just call the hotel and give them that code and you'll receive 10% off your reservation. This is good for anyone that books late or would just prefer a cheaper lodging option. The only downside is that you have to reserve the room over the phone. The code is not valid online.

    You can count me in. For once I will have that weekend off.
    Since I float like a rock I stay out of the water, so I would be down for some mountain biking as well.
