Default 2013 U.S. INDOOR CHAMPS, CLEVELAND, OH NOVEMBER 29TH - DECEMBER 1ST.

HOTEL INFORMATION ADDED TO THIS POST 9-19-13

The Midwest Grandslam Committee is pleased to announce we will be hosting the 2013 U.S. Indoor Champs in Cleveland, Ohio from November 29th to December 1st. The Midwest Grand Slam is privileged to be a part of the more than 30 year tradition of the U.S. Indoor Champs on Thanksgiving weekend. We are currently working out the last few details.
The Holiday Inn Strongsville really wanted us to hold the Champs this year at their facility and have dropped the room rate to $79 a night, which is cheaper than last year's rate. They felt that making hotel reservations should be a simple process so the Holiday Inn Strongsville created a personalized link which has the US Indoor Champs block code USO built into it.

Follow the hyperlink below to get to their website and the code is already in place. If you prefer, you still can call their reservations department directly at 1-877-408-4913 and reference group block USO.

Right click on the link below
Select OPEN hyperlink
The Holiday Inn Reservations Website will open
Save it to your desktop or in your favorites
The destination is already set at the Holiday Inn Strongsville
In the traveler information section please enter your date of arrive and date of departure.
The US Indoor Champs group block code, USO, is already entered
Your rate will be displayed
Select the room type
You will then be asked for guest and credit card information
A confirmation number will be generated

US Indoor Champs <---LINK!!!

If you have any questions, concerns, or problems contact me via PM here, or email us at [email protected]

We currently have room for 175 racers.

This year's race entry fee will be $65 for your first class and $60 per additional class.

• F1 – UF1 rules
• WGT – 13.5 Blinky
• TC – 17.5 Blinky
• TC – 13.5 Blinky
• TC – Mod Open
• 1/12th – 17.5 Blinky

Please make your Paypal payments to [email protected]

Please indicate in the notes section of the Paypal transaction your primary class, any other classes you wish to sign up for, and provide your name, address, phone number, email address and any transponder numbers.

Once we have received a paid confirmation we will email you with the hotel information and provide a discount code to lock in your discounted room rate.

The flyer for this event will be posted shortly.

Glad to see the race coming back. I know our crew had a great time last year.

Do you know yet if the venue will remain the same?

Thanks, Alston. We've missed the old MSI crew & hope more guys can make the whole MWGS series now that we're visiting only Region 5 tracks this year.

There's a lot of RC knowledge on this site, so I'm sure we can hook you up with a good package.

Thanks and yes, we will be at the same hotel and with a similar format.

We're very happy about this positive feedback. More information will be coming shortly including a discounted entry fee structure and cheaper room rates.

Glad to be able to be a part of this long standing tradition, we have a few cool things planned for Grand-slam series and this will only add to the level of fun.

We should have registration open by next Friday Sept. 13th. Considering the Halloween Classic sold out in about 2 weeks, and 2 months before the race, and the fact that we will have a limit to the available ballrooms, you will want to make sure to sign up early

This is a given, especially if Sydor shows up.

What am I chopped liver here?


I've posted an IM below to answer a previously unasked question...

At this point we're a little worried about running out of pit space, so I'd discourage that. Right now we're looking at a possible 150 person cap because of pit space. Plus, we've got to make sure a certain number of hotel rooms are booked or we're going to lose a lot of money and jeopardize the chances of having the Champs next year.

We'll be getting the sign up information out on Friday the 13th and you'll be able to see on the Champs thread how many sign ups come through.

I hope this helps and I hope you can attend! Thanks for the interest.

If you don't mind I'm also going to put this IM up on the thread to answer this question for anyone else who might be asking. Thanks!

-Sean
Basically, with how sign ups sold out so quickly with the ROAR Nationals at Horsham in March and how the Halloween Classic's sign ups just sold out as if they were concert tickets, we recommend you sign up before the event. Thanks!
