    Recommended places to stay:

    Fairfield Inn & Suites in Cumberland, MD

    This facility is closest to the field (about 5 miles away) and has nice quality rooms, but their parking lot is tight. It is in walking distance of many family oriented historic sites, shops, and restaurants.

    Comfort Inn & Suites in LaVale, MD:

    Braddock Best Western in LaVale, MD

    This is an older facility that has been a favorite for those attending the Fall Soar for Fun for many years ago. It was considered the "headquarters" for the CASA group. It has been well maintained over time and offers rooms with parking at the door as well as more budget friendly rates.

    Evening Dining with Local Flavor:

    While there are the typical chain restaurants in the LaVale area; Bob Evans (301-729-0160), Cracker Barrel (301-729-0649), Denny's (301-729-6600), Applebee's (301-729-4189), and Ruby Tuesday (301-729-8738). You may want to check out some of the local favorites:

    Ristorante Ottaviani 25 N Centre Street, Cumberland, MD 301-722-0052 ~fine dining Italian cuisine (reservations recommended)

    Puccini Restaurant 12901 Ali Ghan Road, (east of town off I-68) Cumberland, MD 301-777-7822 ~historic setting, wood fired pizza specialty plus steak & seafood (reservations recommended)

    Fratelli Restaurant & Bar 359 National Highway, LaVale, MD 301-722-1777 ~ Steak, seafood, and pasta specialties. Can accommodate larger groups with advanced notice. (reservations recommended)

    D'Atri's Restaurant 18 National Highway, LaVale, MD 301-722-0052 ~great breakfast, specialty is steak hoagie for lunch, and Italian dishes for dinner. Very reasonable prices, walk in dining, but can have long wait at peak times for lunch and dinner.

    Grand China Buffet Next to Ruby Tuesday and McDonald's in LaVale. Large selection, reasonable prices, quick in & out service. Mix of Chinese and American items plus sushi bar.

    Asian Garden 1235 National Highway, LaVale, MD 301-729-8577 ~quality Chinese & Thai cuisine. walk in and carryout service.

    Giuseppe's Italian Restaurant & Bar 11 Bowery Street, Frostburg, MD 301-689-2220 ~ a favorite place of the University crowd (reservations recommended)

    Linda's Old Furnace Restaurant Route 28 Furnace Acres, Ridgeley, WV 304-738-7000 ~ just south of the field along Route 28. We frequently call in lunch requests and they have it ready for carryout when we get there. Our favorite is their turkey club sandwich. Also a good breakfast spot on the way to the field. Very basic place, but reasonable prices and good food.

    Hope this all helps, we look forward to seeing everyone again and some great flying!

        So Scot has secured his #1 spot.

        Oh man, I’m in serious need of some Highpoint therapy. Is March here yet?
        Team PowerBox Systems Americas ............You can't buy happiness. But, you can buy a sailplane and that's pretty darn close.

          OK Ladies and Gentlemen, I use that last word loosely
          Janet (Swiss Miss) has worked with Katie once again at the Fairfield Inn Cumberland to block off rooms for the March Event!



          Here is the information to send to the guys…the dates are March 21 – March 26. They don’t have to book this entire time, however, if they need any dates before or after these dates, they need to call Katie Morris. Her direct line is 301-876-6037.
          The rate is 79.00 per night. Bookings must be made by the 12th of March


          And please remember it is customary to bring a 6 pack of your local brew for Katie, you may leave it at the front desk!

            We just corrected a problem with the registration page link for the Spring event, seems when you clicked on the registration button for the Spring event it linked to the Fall event...sorry for the confusion, I think all is correct now.
