Few questions,

I notice as of this morning no one has registered, what is the minimum # of attendees that is required to ensure this event takes place?

Lodging?  Anyone plan on spending the night?  I'll look for a campground close by, but if I cannot find one within reasonable distance, I will be getting a hotel room.  Does anyone plan to spend Saturday night in a hotel?  Would be cool if those that were were in the same hotel.  I'll post up here in a bit with what I find both hotel wise and campground wise.

Not much luck on Campgrounds, but there is a:

Comfort Suites Martinsburg
1937 Short Road
Kearneysville, , WV  25430 United States

and

Holiday Inn Express
681 Flowing Springs Road
Ranson, , WV  25438 United States
(877) 410-6681

The Holiday Inn Express is a little but further from Kearneysville, but not by much.

I'll likely make a reservation at one of the above here in a few days.

Chris, I will only be able to do one day (Sunday).  There is a KOA campground in Harpers Ferry which can't be that far away.

KOA is very nice and a great place to go Halloween camping with the Kids but very tight sites.

Wish I could make this. I have family in Charlestown and would love to drag them to this. I forwarded a link and will try to convince them.

I had been looking at the Holiday Inn Express. I wasn't going to subject anyone else to my snoring but we should coordinate if others would be staying at the same place.

I'm interested, let me know what some of the common solutions are for lodging....
