Re: Who is going to WEG?

WEG is next year in September. But some hotels are already sold out! And tickets went on sale today
I've been toying with the idea of getting XCountry tickets but my husband might want a break from horses one day!

Who is going to WEG?

I just ordered my tickets this morning and reserved my hotel room last night! So excited. I LOVED going to WEG in KY. I hope Tryon can do as good a job....although, there do seem to be some issues.
For instance, they are choosing the seats for you.
