the new folks, as long as you and your partner meet the 3 event minimum and
the EES requirement you are eligible for the finals, there is no qualifying.
Now for the state finals. Please book your rooms ASAP as the hotel
has a hold on them. Here is the information:
2015 State Finals -- Bellows Falls VT. Friday September 11th &
Saturday September 12th out of the Springfield, VT ramp.
You can use the Bellows Falls ramp for practicing.
The flagship hotel has been re-branded as a Roadway Inn.
593 Rockingham Road
Bellows Falls, VT, US, 05101
Phone: (802) 463-4536
The rooms are blocked off from Wednesday September 9th-Saturday
September 12th (You can stay more nights or less nights). The group rate
is $79 a night from Sunday the 6th – Friday the 11th. The rate for
Friday night the 11th will be $99. When you call-in use code NEBA to get
these rates. The room block is in place till May 1st or the rooms sell out
whichever come first.
They have changed the room layout which will make it more challenging.
(Mixed couples please help)
5 rooms have 1 king bed, 5 rooms have 1 queen bed, 5 rooms have
2 queen beds and 11 rooms are the standard 2 double beds. It would really
help if the mixed couple teams were able to book the king bed rooms first
making the double bed rooms available for the 2 man teams. Worst case, 2
man teams could book a queen room and bring a cot or blowup bed.
Hotel 101, remember when booking your hotel that you are checking
out on September 12th. IE: leaving on Saturday unless you want to stay longer
As a backup, there is a Holiday Inn Express very close to the Springfield
ramp but it is very expensive and not very boat friendly:
818 Charlestown Road
Springfield, Vermont 05156
Book online or call: 1-800-315-2605
There are also some local mom/pops and reasonable hotels in the
Brattleboro area such as a Motel 6 that are about 30 minutes away.
In early August, you will receive a state finals entry form that
will have the ancillary fees for the event that includes food, raffles,
suppers and lunkers. Other information will follow as far as license requirements,
directions and maps. This is just to get you started. Book fast as the rooms
