When is the 500? May want to try both. Dan
500 is always the 3rd week of June, a full month ahead of this tour.
Too bad they can not work the 500 and this tour closer together. I bet a lot of people would like to do both.
I looked at the Facebook page and it looks like a great tour with awesome views and scenery. Then I read the registration page which was disappointing. It would cost me over $500 for registration and food. Now add that to travelling costs for a 3000 mile round trip from California.
While I do understand that there is costs associated with these tours $500 in registration fees is too steep for me.
Registration is not $500. Car and driver will be less than $200 and passengers around $100. You do not need to sign up for the Summit Dinner nor the banquet. This is about the same cost at this years MTFCI tour in Auburn, NY.
For those of you looking for shared condo lodging, go to our Facebook 2017TourLodging page and express your interest in sharing a condo with another participant. This will allow you to get deluxe accommodations for $89-$115 a night per couple.
...and there are always campgrounds.
It would be great to have the 500 and this tour closer together, but those who run the 500 and participate are also helping with this tour and they need a break between events. I am going to try and arrange some track time at our local racetrack for those who are interested.
There are two camp grounds available near Whitefish, MT. But they aren't as rustic as the one posted above.
Please note that we are changing the schedule of the tour slightly to have the fashion show Sunday afternoon from 4-5PM. It will be in downtown Whitefish adjacent to the car show/judging event that afternoon. The car show awards and youth auction will still be held Thursday evening in the hospitality suite (Ed & Mully's) at the resort. The Sunday opening BBQ will also be at the resort.
Mistake above. Fashion Show will be from 3-4PM.
Our Youth Activities Director, Jennifer Lilliker, has created a survey about past and future youth activities. Please take the survey if you have taken youth on past tours or plan on taking them on the 2017 tour.

Definitely tourist prices on the motel rooms! "Cheap Sleep" at $100 a night!!!!
And I'm posting this as someone who grew up in the resort business.
It sounds like a lovely tour, but outta my budget! I'll stick to short drives around here; the bed's pretty comfortable, and tools are handy, just in case! The food, well, it varies, but I ain't complainin'!
Looks like a fun tour but seven days one way is too much for this old man.
Rick, I agree. I'd like to go, but it'd take me at least 3, more likely 4 nights, to get there. I can't handle more than 500 miles a day anymore with my bad back. And staying awake at the wheel! I realize too that tours need to be set in different parts of the country so those who can't get way east such as the last one at the Finger Lakes can partake in their neck of the woods and vice-versa. There'll be a huge Western turnout I'm sure.
Mister Thrifty cringes at the thought of blowing a hundred bucks a night. I've been known to take a motel room, but very rarely. I grew up camping, and that's my preferred accommodation. Fortunately, many tours are held where there are campgrounds nearby.
Note that there are condos that can be shared that have multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. Price of those luxury digs are around $90/night per bedroom/bathroom when you are sharing with two others. Full kitchens, decks with views, and a living room to share. One of our Facebook sites (2017TourLodging) has been set up to allow people to find others who want to share a condo.
Here is the latest daily schedule for the 2017 tour including links to some of the attractions we are going to see on the tour.

Here is the 2017 tour registration form. Note that it cannot be submitted until January 2, 2017. This gives everyone an equal shot at some of the limited seating items we have on this tour.
Tour Registration Form-17Oct16.pdf (91.1 k)
I just read the daily schedule. All looks interesting BUT what happened to the second last item from the magazine ad?
I know some of us were really looking forward to that (track time)!!
John, I just printed the Tour Registration Form and what printed out has all kinds of jibberish on it.
Has anyone else tried printing the form and got this too?
Track time is still up in the air, but we are trying to arrange something for Saturday evening before the tour starts. They have regular races that evening and they may allow us to use the track between practice and qualification (1 hour slot). If that does not work we can check on renting the track. They only allow one car at a time if you rent it because no EMT on site.
Not a cost item that needs to be part of registration. I'll keep everyone informed here.
I just selected the registration form link which opened up the document in my browser. I then said print and it works fine. I use a Mac.
We downloaded it as a PDF and then it printed ok.
