    As a matter of fact I will be signing the deal with the Red Lion Salem on Tuesday. They will be offering rooms at $70 plus tax. I will post the details regarding the number to call and the group discount name on Tuesday night after I meet with the Red Lion staff.

    Unfortunately the Red Lion manager was out of the office today so I still don't have the agreement signed. She is supposed to be back in tomorrow, so I'll hopefully have news on the discount tomorrow.

    The group rate is set up at the Red Lion Salem. I'll post the full information tonight but the rate should be available if you call and book under the Pokemon Championships group. Here is the information Red Lion sent me:

    I just called to make the reservation and they said they do not have a block reserved for Pokemon. :( I made a reservation anyways but it was $109 a night.

    I dropped off the contract at noon so I'll follow up tomorrow. The rate will be $70 plus tax for either a double queen or king suite. Once I make sure they have told everyone behind the desk I'm sure you can call back and get that changed.

    The Red Lion Inn Salem is offering a group discount rate for our Pokemon Championship. You have a choice of a king or double queen room for $70 a night plus tax. Here is the reservation procedure the Red Lion sent me:
    If you have any problems getting the rate let me know immediately and I'll work with the Red lion to fix the problem.

    With this event being at the fair grounds do you know if they are going to have the concession stands open for food or will we have to walk to what ever is close by ?

    The concession stand will be open.
