Update – 9/13/21 – Hotel Update & FYI.

This afternoon, the hotel called me with some updates on their amenities / services.  Due to staffing shortages, the on-site restaurant will not be open.  This does not impact the banquet meal Saturday evening, but will impact Thursday and Friday evening’s options for dinner.  They are able to open the lounge / bar and intent to have appetizers available.  The manager was concerned that if she attempted to have the restaurant open and be shorted staffed that they would not be able to keep up with the volume our group would bring.  Unfortunately, the onsite restaurant and lounge were a key factor in the location because there is very limited alternatives in the area.  I asked if there were local restaurants that would delivery – pizza, etc. – she said no.  

There are options within a short ride of the hotel for food, both on the same side of I-77 and across in the Walmart Plaza – this google maps link.  There is a china buffet, moe’s southwest grill, Shoney’s, El Gallo Mexican, little caesars, Lloyd’s family restaurant, etc.

There is no hotel shuttle, and Uber is not likely to be in service in the area according to the hotel.

I apologize in advance for the inconvenience this will bring – I was looking forward to the ease of just walking down to the restaurant on site for dinner each day.  The manager did tell me that they will have the patio’s open; they have a fire pit and outdoor seating that will be made available to the group for our stay.  She also asked me to remind the group about their drink policy – no outside beverages are allowed in the public areas of the hotel (lobby, conference rooms).

I am planning on making my 1st EOM this year.  This will be the first time in many years that I am not the rallymeister for the COG Run with the Wolf rally which has always been the weekend before EOM.

I will keep a watch on this thread and see what 2021 holds for us all
