I would have liked to go. It's a no brainer for me, since my wife went to Saratoga's own Skidmore College. But I had another commitment this time around .... which I almost broke to go at the last minute. I plan to go next year. Maybe I'll even take the plunge and bring a game! I've always wanted to do that.
By the pictures it seems like a nice size. Not too crazy, more mellow. We're there lines for games? Please get an authentic Mexican or shawarma (or Halal) food cart for the show. Best street meat ever!
I can see how hotel rates might get jacked during the racing season, but maybe try all the surrounding communities for lower rates? Even Albany, which is only a twenty five minute drive or so, or Glens Falls to the north...and families could even check out the water park and amusement park there.
Guys. For the wives, bring them along and send them to the mineral baths down the road at SPAC. The baths are amazing, but they can get a massage too, and maybe even a mani-pedi. And you, and maybe her too, can golf. It's a great course, right there.
And it's only another hour up to Lake George! Heaven on earth!
LOTS to do up there.
Congrats on the show! That took a lot of work.
