*** Offical SPAC 2019 Thread ***

Now that Ballsfest has been announced for Saturday, July 13 it would appear the SPAC dates are set in stone for 7/12 + 7/13.

Looking forward to seeing old friends, meeting new faces and 2 great shows. Hope Joe M's shirts are ironed crisply!

    Nice to see this thread. I'll be at the Holiday Inn this year. This will mark the first time I won't be at The Inn or Embassy (ridiculously priced).

    Yes, price was just about the same as The Inn ($400 total for 2 nights) so I figured I'd switch it up. The Inn has a free breakfast, but I will use the lack of a breakfast at the Holiday Inn as a reason to get up early and head into town.

    You know it. Can't beat tailgating in those big trees. 60-90 minutes prior to the regular lots opening is ideal it seems.

    Already booked at The Inn, but just checked the Holiday Inn. DAMN! Prices have jumped already. Was over $600 for the two nights.

    That spot was ideal for not on pregame, but post-game too.

    Makes my yearly rent broken down to a daily price seem cheap

    I have the Red Roof in Clifton Park booked also for $200 total for 2 nights. It's half the price of The Holiday Inn in Saratoga, but I like the idea of staying in Saratoga. I'll have to make a decision by early February as my right to cancel the clifton park reservation for free expires then.

    To be fair, I booked on November 28. I'm sure that has a huge part in the lower rate.

    Newbie to SPAC, so I apologize if I sound ignorant. We booked an airbnb in Ballston Spa in December (about 4 miles South of the park). Is it doable to drive and tailgate in every day? Not sure about the logistics of the area.

    Yes, definitely. If you've never been to Saratoga before though you should definitely try and allot some time to the town which is a mile or two north of the park.

    I booked The Inn last month once the mid-July dates seemed to be firming up. I have made the mistake in past years waiting too long, i.e. after Xmas or right before the tour announcement, and getting gouged on rates.

    It's crazy how early you have to jump on booking for SPAC. Saved a ton over the years thanks to the nice people on here who have shared their info.

    Had this thread locked and loaded yesterday.... and never hit post... I even copied last years so I spelled it wrong and everything.

    I have no tickets, no rooms and no plan. At least this year I won't be flying back from anywhere N1. These will likely be only shows I do this summer cause DJM fucking sucks

    Salt isn't good for your kidneys.

    Fat ups your cholesterol

    Your thyroid impacts your hormones.
