Daniel, Mapquest shows the wrong location for that address.

 

 

 

 

The first photo is your Dad's place where we are plowing at.

The second photo is where Mapquest says the location is, south of about a mile?

Actually, the Mapquest one show Dad's place about a mile south of MY home, so it's about 3 miles off!

My nephew called to reserve a room and the guy he spoke with said no discount.

He said he had no knowledge of a GTTalk Ball Hollow plow day discount.

He said there had to be a confirmation number???????????

Anybody else have any issues getting the discount?

 

My nephew just sent me the confirmation and the rate is $99.99.

That's not gonna work.

Yes, that's the right one, but don't book on line. Call the direct number to get the discounted rate.

That's the place Brian mentioned
I did some phone calling and some investigation
Call back after 3pm Sunday evening or Monday after 7am
The young lady at the desk today -Ashton - has no clue what is going on, and said it has to be either Mgr Kathy or Mgr Takara (sp?)

Here's the info on the hotel again.


Again this year the "Days Inn of Ezilabethtown, KY" has been good enough to give ALL GTtalk members attending the plow day a discounted rate.MAKE SURE TO MENTION "GTtalk" to get this discounted rate!!
This year's rate is $60.00 plus tax for a total of $67.80 per night for any and all nights starting Thursday, March 31st though Sunday, April the 3rd. Regular rate is 91.66 for that time of year, so we get around a 33% discount.
Also something new this year, you can receive a 10% discount on your restaurant bill at the following restaurants by presenting your room key envelope when you pay your bill.
Here are the restaurants that offer the 10% discount,
Denny's, located at the Days Inn
Texas Road House
Texas Outlaw Barbeque
Ruby Tuesdays
Shoney's
Here is the contact info;
Days Inn Elizabethtown06068_b1t.jpg
2010 North Mulberry/I-65
I-65 & US 62 Exit 94
Elizabethtown , KY 42701-2053 US
Phone: 1-270-769-5522
Fax: 1-270-769-3211
I have stayed there a few times now and it has always been a nice clean hotel with well lighted parking lot. They offer both smoking and non-smoking rooms, both single queen and double queens with Micro and refrigerator.

AJ, I'm sorry for the confusion but the girl working the front desk right now can't find the discount rate for us. I will call the general manager Monday morning and get this straightened out. Please be patient with me to get this fixed again.

Sorry for your troubles.

Daniel,

Good Lord willin' and the creek don't rise... I am going to do my best to make it to the BHPD! As always, would be great to see some old acquaintances and make some new.

Glad to see that Kenny and Brian have plans to be there. Please keep Ol' Buzzard in the loop on the weather/soil conditions in case he needs to bring some rain to soften the soil!

If possible, I will bring a couple of extra plows for those that might need a loaner.

Hope to see you all there!

Plow Day WILL take place no matter what is going on here.  If we get rained out on the first date, we'll push it back a week at a time till we get to turn dirt.  But I have mentioned gathering as many Bush Hog GT's as possible to do a "plow line pic of hogs".  That I can't live up to, as I may only have 2 of my tractors out there this year.  Simply too much going on in my life at the moment to get my Hogs ready.  I fired up my JBI with the TJD engine today after having to clean the mag points only to find my throttle cable is seized.  I just don't have the time to do repairs.  Scott (sacsr) can't make it with any of his Hogs as it's his busiest time of year in his job.  If we end up with a few though, we'll get a pic of what we can.

  But the rest of the event will go on!

If you have a throttle cable for it, I will fix it Friday morning! That would be a great pic for sure! I think Alice will be drooling to get close to Hogzilla!
