No Excuses-Come to summer's BEST event!

Saturday, July 26, 2003 4:33 PM
The third annual Coaster Alley Convergence is scheduled for Saturday, August 23rd at Silverwood Amusement Park in Athol, Idaho. Event info can be found here.

Deadline to register is tomorrow, Sunday July 27th at midnight PST!

It's time to put away the excuses and come join three dozen of your fellow CoasterBuzzers in the Pacific Northwest:

"But Idaho is so far away."
Not really. The park is about as far from Seattle as Las Vegas is from Los Angeles, and getting there is pretty easy. Spokane International Airport is a mere 60 miles from the park and all major airlines fly there.

"Flights are too expensive."
You'll find that Alaska Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and United Airlines all have the best fares to Spokane and Jet Blue serves Seattle. Check www.orbitz.com, www.southwest.com, and www.jetblue.com for low fares. Sometimes a combination of two airlines works, like Jet Blue round-trip to Seattle and Alaska round-trip from Seattle to Spokane. Or, if you can't afford to fly into Spokane try flying into Seattle and driving. A few attendees are doing that and caravans can be arranged. You'll find hotels along the way in Ellesburg and Moses Lake if you don't want to make the drive in one day.

"Why travel that far just for two wooden coasters?"
Um, hello? Many people used to say the same thing about Holiday World, and now look how popular SRM is! Anyone who's attended the past three CAC's will tell you that Tremors and Timber Terror are three outstanding CCI woodies. You know how Holiday World says Raven and Legend run in "Insane Mode" for SRM? Well Silverwood's two woodies run in "Extreme Mode" for CAC!

"I love SRM but with the crowds I only got a few rides."
That is not a problem at CAC! With three hours of night-time in-the-dark ERT on two coasters and only 35 people registered thus far you can ride and ride and ride until you just can't ride any more. And since both coasters are next to each other you don't have to walk up a hill like getting from Legend to Raven!

Still not convinced?
Read Mike Miller's trip report from CAC2002.

Don't miss out! Register TODAY! See you at Silverwood!

Alas, I cant make it, but the boss just tossed a three day class at me in......Redmond, class starts the 12th but my flight is on the 8th, Any guess where I am driving Saturday the 9th???:)

Oh and as a sidenote the Doubletree in downtown Spokane can be had for $40 on Priceline, lowest cost on orbitz was $90.00

Silly me, I had forgotten I only had a week after returning from my PA,NY,OH & MI trip to register. If I had not seen this I would have missed it.

GKills - good to hear you'll be there.

Mike - I can't believe with all my annoying reminders you hadn't registered yet!

Make sure you both save a seat next to you for some mooshing ;)

None taken Moosh, but I gotta show Cornie some love one last time this year.

Really angry at myself that I didn't get to Silverwood 2 years ago when I spent a week up near Glacier National Park in NW Montana. Did do some whitewater rafting, tho, so it was kinda like a park visit. All in all, I'd have to say that Montana lacks the themeing of Bilge Rat Barges. That's what happens when your friends consist of non-enthusiasts.

Nate - first day of Summer is June 21st...don't think I didn't take that into consideration ;-) The last thing I want to do is anger the Raven Maven herself! SRM remains the best event of the YEAR.

As a stupid as I may sound, I'll be at the event I've been looking forward to all summer: The Carolina Coaster Classic at Carowinds :P. This is definitely one awesome look event though that I'm going to have to look into next year.

Gee, you think Moosh is excited about this event? :)

Not that I blame him -- I'm very much looking forward to my first CAC.

This is *my* first visit to Silverwood, too! But really all I'm doing is trying to get a few more attendees before the deadline.

mOOSH [27 days and counting!]

This trip will not only be my first time at Silverwood, but the first time at Playland in Vancouver, as well. It's going to be an amazing trip.

Boblogone & GoliathKills - I spoke with the CAC organizer, Kevin Coley, and he still has not received emails from you confirming you'll be attending the event.

Don't forget the deadline to register is midnight PST tonight. You will not be able to register on-site or attend ERT is you are not registered by the deadline!

Moosh, I don't get anywhere near as much internet time as I did several months ago so I didn't see all the numerous reminders.
