2016 Spring Willys Reunion May 20-21
« on: April 27, 2016, 03:32:14 PM »
We've listened to your requests to move back more to the Midwest, so mark your calendars for the Spring Willys Reunion to be held at a new location in Effingham, Illinois.

Announcing the 2016 Spring Willys Reunion May 20-21 at the Holiday Inn

The preliminary info is now on the website but won't have actual registration info until after the New Year.

If you call the hotel and ask for a reservation, they will tell you that the hotel is booked. As are a few others in the general area due to s sporting event.

You need to say you are with the Willys Reunion. The code is WJR. Again, the hotel is booked except for the reunion.

We highly encourage those  that can share a room to get with your friends to reserve a room together so we can get as many in the Holiday Inn as possible.

Keep check for more information after the New Year.

jpet is of the understanding that all three hotels, Holiday Inn, Country Inn, and Baymont Inn are completely sold out for Thursday and Friday.

There are 14 rooms still available at the Hampton Inn for Friday night. These rooms are blocked for us but they are going to be released on Wednesday.

Hampton is completely sold out other than our block and they want those rooms if we are not booking them. Looks like this show will be huge...

Hi All,  The number to the Hampton Inn is 217-540-5050.  In fairness to the hotel, If you do not have a reservation yet, please make it today.  We never expected such a turn out for Friday.  I'm looking forward to seeing all my friends again.

At your service

But I'll post my thanks to jpet and the team for doing it again this year.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Maybe next year for me. Sigh.

Last call.  The Hampton Inn is going to release their block today.  217-540-5050.  There still are some rooms available.  The Hampton is within walking distance to the show parking lot.  Hope to see you there!
