After talking about it for years, we are finally going to go to the Stampede for NYE this year. 

Tickets will not go on sale until around Thanksgiving but last year they were $25 and included dancing, buffet dinner and champagne toast at midnight. 

We have a block of rooms reserved at the Holiday Inn Express, just down the street. It is a smoke-free facility and includes a hot buffet breakfast. Rooms are blocked for Saturday and Sunday nights. You can book for one night or two for the same rate of $175.00 per night which includes either a king bed or two queens. To make reservations you can call 951.699.2444 (give the dates and group name Do It In Line Dancers) or you can book online at (use Group code DAN). 

The hotel is providing us with shuttle service to and from the Stampede. Plan to tip the driver please. 

Many more details to follow including fun stuff for Saturday if you spend two nights.
