    I'm thinking of attending but don't see anything on the IRCWCC website about where in North Carolina. Anyone know what airport we'd fly into?

    Thanks in advance

    Charlotte Douglas International is the nearest large airport.

    Thanks gang, it would be awesome to see everyone again (Lou). Is there a block of rooms or special rate at the Quality Inn?

    We might need another hotel as back-up.
    There are going to be a lot of construction workers there.
    And /or we may need to be on the second floor
    Get used to a 5:00am wake-up call

    I don’t think Rob S monitors this site, I recommend directing all questions about nats accommodations to the IRCWCC groups.io list

    When I did mine yesterday, I had to mention we were with the model boats group. Should get you the discount.

    Seemed like a good chunk of the hotel was used for section 8 housing, we had someone come up to us mid overdose with vomit on their clothes who would not leave when kindly asked to, we notified the staff and the person was carted away. One guy had someone pound on his door at 3am probably wrong room for drug pick up, a few other shady characters roaming about, police felt the need to do evening passes through the parking lot (which we appreciated). Overall general consensus was we’d rather pay a bit more to hopefully not deal with that
