    X-FEST 2017 will make it's mark on Hershey, Pennsylvania!

    That's right guys... the one and only X-Fest will return to Hershey after an eight year hiatus. This year's X-Fest will be held in from October 27-29. The itinerary will be light so we have the flexibility to adjust on the fly, but here is my first pass:
    • Fri, Oct 27: Arrive, Meet & Greet, TownePlace Suites, Roundtop Mountain Adventures (Zip Lines, Rope Courses, or Paintball), Annual Show-N-Shine
    • Fri, Oct 27: Dinner at Marzoni's Brick Oven & Brewing within walking distance of the property, Campfire, Socializing
    • Sat, Oct 28: SCCA Autocross Event at Hersheypark (morning).
    • Sat, Oct 28: Hersheypark or Roundtop Mountain Adventures (Zip Lines, Rope Courses, or Paintball)(afternoon)
    • Sat, Oct 28: Dinner at Troegs Independent Brewing, and the ANNUAL RAFFLE
    • Sat, Oct 28: Indoor Karting at Autobahn Indoor Speedway, Campfire, Socializing (nightcap)
    • Sun, Oct 29: Breakfast and Depart

    For those of you who have never been to one of these events, it's laid back and casual. It's not about tons of vendors setting up booths to push their products. It's a chance to put faces to the names you see on here every day. It's a chance for the new guys with stock rigs to see in person that can be done and ask all the questions that haven't been answered here (are there any of those?). It's about meeting new people, building camaraderie, and having fun with people that likely have very much the same interests you do. These types of meets are what is best about this forum. We'll have organized dinners on Friday and Saturday nights with the group and a raffle with some GREAT prizes following Saturday's.

    Raffle Prizes


    TBD

    The Show & Shine will be informal with no entry fee this year. There will be two separate classes "stockish" and "modified" so as not to put the new guys at a disadvantage. This is usually very informal, but is great because it gives everyone the opportunity to check out each others' rides. We hope everyone will participate for a chance to win a nice little prize package.

    For the first time in X-Fest East's existence you'll be able to push your truck to it's limits at the SCCA Autocross Event at Hersheypark. Please sign up here -> EVENT SIGNUP (as "AM" or "A Modified). Classes can be found here -> CATEGORIES. Rules can be found here -> COMPLETE RULES (See Section 18). We'll spend the morning tearing up the course. You think you're the fastest? Now you can PROVE IT!

    UPDATE: If you want to run the autocross you HAVE TO GET ON THE WAIT LIST NOW!! As of right now the event is full. If we can't get a majority of us in we will change plans. I have a couple backup plans to choose from. Please PM me that you plan to race, and sign up ASAP.

    I have reserved a 20 room block at TownePlace Suites (King Studio Suite-$109/night +tax, 2BR Suite-$169/night +tax) in Mechanicsburg, PA. You should be able to book either room via this direct link (http://cwp.marriott.com/harmt/xru) or by calling the hotel directly and referencing XRU. The room block is reserved through Friday Oct 6. The property is also pet friendly (pet cleaning fee) so please inform the hotel if you plan to bring your furry friend.

    GUESTS SIGNING UP AFTER OCTOBER 6TH (EMAIL FROM HOTEL)
    Hi Matt,
    Thanks for your call, we are happy to accommodate more of your guests attending the event. To make a reservation, call the hotel directly at (717) 691- 1400, press (0) to speak with a Guest Service Representative on property and then ask for Tiffany Panosetti if the Representative isn't able to help. I have directed our front desk to allow your group rate so be pushed through and so everyone should be able to help.....
    Thank you,
    Nicole Miller

      Too late to get the group rate but put me down. I'm on the waiting list for the autocross, hopefully some people no-show.

      You are not too late to get the group rate.

      From the Sales Manager Nicole Miller "To make a reservation, call the hotel directly at (717) 691- 1400, press (0) to speak with a Guest Service Representative on property and then ask for Tiffany Panosetti if the Representative isn't able to help.

      Ill follow up on the autocross event and see if I can get people signed up some other way. I've never seen it fill up before so i didn't think that could happen. Typically it just makes the event longer if there are more people.
    5. NHXRUNNER
      NHXRUNNER
      Thanks Greg. I don't think many have signed up. I know I haven't. If this turns into an issue we'll have to scramble to change our plans for the day.
