BTW if anyone is local to the National or is close enough to drive, and has a Sam's Club membership, please PM me. I have a slight favor to ask of someone. Needs to be going on Wednesday though if possible.

I went on the national site tonight and am trying to get a hotel for me and my nephew for 2 night. Anybody get rooms this week, and know good motels to call. It would have to be kinda close, because we are taking the bus down to downtown Baltimore and cant travel to far back and fourth from show to Hotel. Any advice is always great! Hope to meet some good people and have a fun time.

Wow, awesome! I'll be there on Saturday. Can't wait! I went when it was in Baltimore before in 2010 and it was awesome. This year's looks to be so much better though. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity, too!
