  • Spring Zing 2018 - Peoria, IL May 3rd - 6th Hotel information and more...

    Spring Zing 2018 - Peoria, IL
    May 3rd - 6th

    The hotel has been selected and a block of rooms held.


    Quality Inn & Suites
    4112 N Brandywine Drive
    Peoria, IL, 61614-6727

    Phone: (309) 685-2556
    Fax: (309) 685-6272

    https://www.choicehotels.com/illinoi...n-hotels/il455


    Call the hotel directly and ask for the "Contour Group" block of rooms

    Check in: Thursday May 3rd
    Check out: Sunday May 6th

    Must reserve by April 1, 2018

    I had them block some double queen bed rooms, and a couple single king bed rooms.
    $70 per night + tax regardless of room type.

    I can add more if I need to. I hope I will need to!!

    Note: The only double queen bed rooms available were not non-smoking rooms. However, there are likely to be some non-smoking double queen bed rooms come available once two other groups also staying at the hotel release their unused rooms. (one of the other groups is the minor league baseball team in town to play the Peoria Chiefs that weekend. They have 15 rooms blocked but normally only use 12 or 13. The other group I believe was the National Guard). We will be in line to get those once they do.

    The banquet and raffles on Saturday will be at the hotel in one of their conference rooms. I will work on the catering for that and communicate the total cost to attend SZ (including the banquet) as well as the schedule of activities in the weeks ahead!

    Stay on the lookout for updates, including possible discount information from Hoerr (pronounced "hair") Racing Products.

      Here is the current thinking of activities for Spring Zing.



      This schedule is tentative and subject to change



      Times where there is only one activity listed, group participation is expected. Times where multiple options are listed, participants can choose the activity they prefer.

        It is a couple years old... but this is a good video about visiting Peoria, and some of the attractions in the area.

          I'll be meeting with the folks at Hoerr Racing Products on Thursday to discuss their involvement with Spring Zing. They seem excited to be part of it.

            Had the meeting with Hoerr Racing. All I can say is they are excited to participate, and all y'all (that's southern for all of you) need to be here to participate on Friday morning, 9:00.

            More to come later. Stay tuned.

              Tip for the weekend: The host hotel is a popular place. The likelihood of them filling up is high. Book your room now so I will know if I need to expand the block before it is too late. You can cancel the reservation later if plans fall through. (but they won't, right? )

                Just reserved a single King room. I checked what price I could get with my Choice Rewards program, and this is a great deal!

                  One of the attractions I have on the agenda for Friday afternoon... the Caterpillar Visitors Center. I am looking forward to seeing the group there.

                    I heard from the hotel on Monday that 3 of the 6 rooms in the block have been reserved. There was a post on FB that a fourth reservation was made after that. If you are wanting a double queen room, please book now. There aren't any more to put in the block (until one or two may get released by the other groups at the last moment).

                    Once the 6 get booked I'll add more, but they will all be single king rooms.

                        More rooms have been added to the block.... all single King rooms. There were only 4 double queens in the block, since that was all the hotel had, and I don't know how many of those are left.

                        Keep reporting as you book your rooms so I can track the consumption of the block. Thanks!!
