    Time to start thinking about this.
    The event is June 12th thru 16th in Steamboat springs.
    I'm registered for the "auto cross", and the "show n shine"
    Registration is already full/closed
    Anyone else registered/going?

    I'm heading up on the Thursday. Registered for show and shine but didn't get in on the auto cross. Heard the show is moving to the street along the river and not on main street.

    I have been to Steamboat many times but I have never gone to the round up before, so don't have a reference of location. Is the river area larger? Or easier access?

    The show was on main street (Lincoln Ave) and closed to traffic with the detour using the side streets. The street one block to the south (Yampa Ave) along the river will now be the closed off street for the show with main street remaining open. I guess some folks complained which is strange as the businesses loved all the foot traffic. Should be the same amount of space and they can fill in the side streets. Last year was my first time to RMMR with over 500 cars. It's a great event. There were a couple of R's there last year so you'll be in good company.

    Thanks for the info.
    Have you participated in the auto-cross before?
    Is there parking for enclosed car trailers?
    Best hotels/rentals to stay? Affordable?

    Have not participated in the autocross although they allow willing drivers to take volunteer passengers which I talked my wife into going for a ride last year. She loved it.
    The RMMR website has info on discounted rooms at the Steamboat Grand Hotel for RMMR registered vehicles. It's an average price but does have parking for trailers and garage for the cars.
    That's where most of the attendees stay including myself.

    Dang wished I would have know about it sooner. Starting to see most events sell out in minutes it seems.

    Yes the auto-cross opens up at midnight Dec 31st (New years eve) and sells out in the first 12-24 hours,
    I have to set a calendar reminder. I have never been to this but I've been told that it is a fun thing to experience as a spectator and weekend of Mustang eye candy

    My wife and I are heading up Friday night, not showing the car, but going to enjoy the show and scenery. I haven't been to this in over 20 years... Looking forward to it. Thanks for the info on the show being moved a street over.

    There was a Kona Blue LE in the show last year. Keep an eye out for it. Love seeing the LE's. I've yet to see a white one in the wild. Maybe this year.

    So the round up is coming up quick.
    I'll be there starting Wednesday night. Look me up if your going.
    I'll have my magnetic blue 17 GT350r up there.
