CALGARY ACCOMMODATION INFORMATION for those who require it ...
I'm posting this Calgary Stop separately (and with the blessing of @ddgermann)
so that separate aspects won't get too confusing with others in the thread
Cruise - Lets meet in the Middle...

This thread is for the
CALGARY STOP for the night of Wednesday JULY 11, 2018
and CALGARY START for a Cruise to Moose Jaw on Thursday JULY 12, 2018

You are most welcome to book more nights previous to this
if you would like to enjoy The Calgary Stampede
I will post more information in this thread to introduce you to the area of this Hotel
as there is a lot to accommodate yourself and your Corvette

There are 2 Coin Car Washes (I personally use them)
The Deerfoot Inn & Casino is close by
There is a Flying-J with Shell V-Power Fuel
Jack Carter Chevrolet Cadillac Corvette GMC Dealership
Two Separate Shopping & Dining Areas
(many sit-down and fast food Restaurants of varied cuisine)
I also Reside in the adjacent Neighborhood
The Management & Staff at Service Plus Inns & Suites
are enthusiastic to accommodate Ourselves
with our Corvettes in their own Section of the Parking Lot

I have negotiated an initial special 12 room allotment
King Bed with a Sofa Lounge & more
Regular Price is minimum $169 during Stampede
our Price $149 per night
see all your details below
The Hotel will increase the allotment - subject to availability
try not to delay booking
I have negotiated a 72 hour cancellation policy
(as their current best Stampede rate is more restrictive, prepaid & slightly greater cost)

Booking Group Name & number is ,,,
"Meet in the Middle Corvette - 2695"

call 1-888-875-4667
or call 1-403-256-5352
link:
Our Hotel in Calgary South | Service Plus Inns & Suites

the particulars are below
more will be added to this unique thread about the location
ENJOY !!!
This stop is currently planning to head East from Calgary to Moose Jaw on Thursday July 12th

Excellent Spence.

Glad you got this tread going. As I mentioned I will put a link to this thread on the up coming “Meet in the Middle” event page so people can quickly navigate here.

I'm planning on booking my rooms this week in Moosejaw, does any one know if there is a group number for this leg. I see that a block of rooms has been arranged according to the corvette zone but it has no info on whether or not we should book with a group number. I see Winnipeg has a group number so ill also be booking those rooms as well.

After Check-in at the Moose Jaw hotel and when the ladies are tired of polishing and hearing how awesome our Corvettes are.... We are off for dinner at Boston Pizza just next to the hotel. Spence has made arrangements for a section for 30 hungry travellers from 6:30pm up to a 2am closing.
This offers an awesome variation of menu items and is licensed too.
Cars get parked & it's walking distance from our Hotel to next door.
Should meet everyone's taste and reasonable price and easier on coordinating. Thanks Spence!

Thursday July 12th from 6:30pm
Boston Pizza (1-306-691-5455)
1650 Main Street, Moose Jaw
"Corvette Meet in the Middle" Section

This information is also on the 'Corvette Zone" event
