    Is College Station, PA too much of a drive, or just perfect? Probably more restaurant options there as well?

    Hi

    Are you talking about The Station at State College? Do you have a zip code?

    Google maps only shows that location or College Station in Willow Grove, PA which is a couple hundred miles away

    @Enough Said - so, and didn't want to dig through the TON of posts above where we meandered around a good bit about hotels.

    HI Marc - as Nik mentioned above, College Station, PA is about 190 miles east. I believe you must be thinking about State College, PA where Penn State is located and which is about 30 miles from the gun club. Also, I assume you are looking for hotels??

    This is what I have found for hotels in the area of the gun club...excluding the asshole Holiday Inn Express Lewistown and their $500/night rate during Penn State football season. And, this particular one isn't even closest to the Penn State games....they are like 30-35 miles away, want $500/night, and the Holiday Inn Express (see below) in State College where the game actually is runs only $100/night. Makes zero sense.

    Closest to the club: Quality Inn & Suites, 13015 Ferguson Valley Road, US 322, Burnham, PA, 17009-1892,
    https://www.choicehotels.com/pennsy...3D2D6E924A7C0EC9989FC9AE&source=EMCHRESUSENCP
    looks kind of meh
    3 miles from club
    About $100/night

    Next closest is: Best Western Nittany Inn Milroy, 5 Commerce Drive, Milroy, Pennsylvania 17063-8104
    look alright to me
    9 miles from club
    About $110/night

    Next we have to move into State College, PA for any other hotels. There are a bunch of hotels in State College, but I personally made resv at these two:

    Holiday Inn Express State College @Williamsburg Sq, 1925 Waddle Road State College, PA United States 16803
    34 miles from club
    About $100/night (varies by day by a few)

    Hilton Garden Inn State College, 1221 East College Avenue, State College PA 16801
    30 miles from club
    about $145/night

    And yes, mo' restaurants, etc in State College. Only issue may be Sunday night (not for hotel, got those) when it may be a bit crowded in town as it seems many will stay over to Sun after the game on Sat. But, I bet they clear out by Sun evening and head home for the most part.

    I hope this is helpful, please let me know if I can do anything further for you and Frank on this subject.

    Cheers

    Holiday Inn State College, PA reservations made. A little bit of a drive, but multiple restaurants in the parking lot. Jersey Mike's on the way home to gather lunch for the next day. PERFECT.

    Spoke to Holiday Inn Express in Reedsville. They must be on CRACK...
    The other choices don't have eats close by, so there you go.

    I'll try to arrange a meeting place at a later date for the meet-n-greet.

    Any of the hotels in reedsville,milroy ,burnham or lewistown all have food close by and are closer than state college but state college does have more and is more upscale.

    @Enough Said ,What time do you typically start classes in the day? I live 2hrs away and want to know if I should plan a hotel stay or make the drive. Where can I find a list of recommended equipment to bring as well and round count? Thank you.

    Sight - Unseen, we always default to newer hotels with restaurants close to keep the drunk drivers from driving drunk. :-]. The longer ride to the range is through nice country and a great way to enjoy a cup of coffee. Frank and I debrief the day and game the next on the drive back. Yes, I wish it were closer too. Holiday Inn Reedsville wanted $450 for one of the nights so they can kiss my ass.

    I have never heard of that hotel quoting a price like that we have friends and family stay there quite often , maybe something changed .

    I just called to confirm this as my relatives said they never paid anything close to that when they come to stay but sure enough they wanted 506 per night , i dont know what changed there but they are on crack . Probably a penn state game or some type of conference at the school is all i can think of.

    I will be in touch later in the summer through email when I open the payment portal for your course. Range fees are $35 per day, $70 for the Course. We may just add it to the Course fee and cut the check to the range ourselves to keep the confusion down.

    Thanks for your question. It will probably put lots of minds at ease.

    Have they said whether or not the range fee applies to members? If not, the fee is 120 iirc for an annual membership and locals may want to opt for that and have access all year rather than the one time fee. Just a thought, depends on their policy.

    Clarification:
    We are "purchasing" the range for your two-day course, then again for the other two-day course. That must be paid for, regardless of whether the shooter is a member.

    ABOUT PAYMENT FOR THE COURSE

    We just processed a block of payments for the Nebraska Class which is July 30 - August 1. Everyone who is coming is paid up, the course is full and we are close enough that everyone who paid is confident that they can attend.

    I request payment in blocks like this, so I can track your payments as they roll in and fill out my roster. We cannot do this all at once, nation-wide, as it would create a huge mess. We are in 9 states this year with more than a dozen courses.

    Get your shit together and if you want OFF the roster, get off the roster with an email to me. [email protected].
    Otherwise, pay up promptly and follow instructions when requested, please. You are 32 names right now and that is going to be hard to keep up with when they start rolling in. I WILL LET YOU KNOW, BY EMAIL, WHEN I WANT THAT TO BEGIN. Will also post here in case I have someone's email wrong.

    I'll probably be in touch in early-mid August, by email, to our rostered students, requesting immediate payment of Course Fees.

    Thanks, guys. We are having a great year with great students and cannot wait to get to you in PA.

    Taylor
